What kinds of things are on your must do in your lifetime list?

I have seeing the Northern Rockies again, and seeing the Northern Lights.

You?

1. I have had Alaska on my life list since I was a young child. I don't think this is going to happen now.

2. Visit the Rockies in the northwest. My brief trip though that area on my motorcycle years ago showed me just a bit of the beautiful, wild country. I would love to see more of it.

3. Visit all the national parks I haven't been to yet.

4. Garden in a temperate climate again where I can have fruit trees and warm season vegetables in great abundance such as tomatoes and corn.

CooknThyme, I too once thought strongly about living off the grid but had to give this one up many years ago. I just could not do it while I was still stronger and healthier.

Never really had a lifetime list as I'm just happy with my life as is and don't really want much other than happiness and love of my people in my life and my animals.

But,

Say I won the lottery.

I would love to open an animal rescue place and manage it. I would like to do a lot of hands on, but would want to make sure it has many good integrity people to handle it since I'm not young anymore. I would rescue all types of animals that humans have domesticated since the beginning. I would want to educate people to only adopt an animal that they can care for the lifetime of the animal and how to make it work.

I would also love to open a human rescue place and manage it. I would like to do a lot of hands on, but would mostly want to make sure it has many good integrity people to handle it since I'm not young anymore. I would rescue all ages of people; Children especially and adults that need help to help themselves. I would not rescue people that would not help themselves. I would want to educate people that life, work and effort does matter.

My ideal world -- oh well....

I like that way of looking at it a lot better, so I changed the title of the thread.

I would add to my list finding the perfect acreage (5+) somewhere along the Rockies, and having a reasonably sized house built on it. And a staff to keep it maintained.

:whistle:

Yes, rhetorical. I haven't gotten any nor is any in my future. I do keep trying to win the lottery, but need to buy a ticket someday, I've been told. :lol:

If I had the money, I would...

1. Help the needy.
2. Finance a cure for the sick.
3. Feed the hungry.
4. Pay for someone's groceries.
5. Give someone my car.
6. Pay for someone's house, electric and gas bills.
7. Free firewood for anyone.
8. Send someone to college.
9. Pay a stranger's student loan.
10. Thank my lucky stars.

Wow, Henry! Wouldn't that be rewarding?

I've always wanted to set up a foundation that would help small nonprofits doing important work. Of course, I would be the Executive Director, and work for $1 per year.
