101 in 1001 v2

We all have them; dreams and goals we'd like to accomplish along with fun activities to try.  If you're like me, though, if you don't write them down, they either won't get done or won't be remembered.  So here I am again with another 101 in 1001 list.

In case you're not familiar with the concept, this is a list of 101 activities one wishes to complete in 1001 days (about 2.75 years).  I may not compete them all, or I may complete more than listed (thus the bonus round).  The point is to give myself momentum to continue my life moving in a positive direction, plus have a lot of fun along the way.

So here goes...

In no particular order (unless logically dictated):
Time frame:  January 1, 2017 - September 29, 2019

As I finish each item, I will list its completion date, and blog posts about finished items will appear as a clickable link.

Note:  This list is subject to change without notice.
