What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

My Bucket List Before I go to HELL

Only two items left on the list.

1. Sail to Bermuda, UK, North side of Med Sea, turn around in Turkey and back to Caribbean to Panama, Pacific, NZ, sail north to Philippine to Hong Kong and Canton, China, down to Vietnam, Singapore and make my way to south to Madagascar and then round out SA back to South America to Caribbean. Final trip to Florida.

2. Ride my Triumph from Ocean City, MD via Highway 50 to SFO. Travel like a hobo, stick with camping, eating at diner, and staying at roadside motels of the yesteryear. Travel light, and use WalMart as my traveling wardrobe.

This is purely photography focused trip to see America. But most like will leave my DSLR home and find a more compact camera like X100.

Itinerary and route of both trips is subject to change. No need to break any records. I can take a break any time I want, and I can fly home if I have enough. No need to follow any one's wishes. I will do whatever I want and for the first time, I am no longer as a provider. I am free at last.

Will I do it again to support my parents, brothers and sisters, our own family, our children and employees? Absolutely!!!

So what is your short list.

So how is this sailing related by your own title? Good item though?

Re: What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

For some reason I really have the desire to cross the line and look for the Southern Cross.
Maybe an Atlantic crossing, but I really don't want to have much of anything to do with the Southern Ocean. To those that say they want to circumnavigate I say Good Luck down there. I think I can keep myself busy in the Carib.
and how could I forget, there is so much to see right here in the midwest; some time on Superior would be nice and of course the North Channel and that big ass bay over by there.

I think everyone will accept if you but a Southern Cross sailboat in lieu of crossing the southern ocean.

Be warned a Bristol does not count.

I've always been intrigued with Easter Island, not really on my bucket list but might make it someday.
I understand your draw to the Galapagos.

Re: What’s on Your Bucket List? must be sailing related thingies

1. Sail the Annapolis-Newport race
2. Sail to Bermuda.
3. Sail Newport, RI to Maine. Been underway down East Coast, Caribbean, Gulf, transited Panama (3x), up Central America, West Coast to Everett WA. Need to fill in that little RI to Maine part (already sailed Penobscot Bay). Not necessarily all under sail, but who cares?
