Adventure Paul's Bucket List

Adventure Paul's Bucket ListBelow is my bucket list of things I want to do. The purpose of having a list like this is to put my goals out there to the world so that they are more likely to come true.

The items on the list appear in no particular order and I add to the list in random places. I won’t remove anything after I do it, but rather, link to blog posts where I accomplish these things. If you can help me cross off an item on this list, Contact Me.
