Hey Team,

I know I railed against New Year’s Resolutions last year and I still feel strongly that if you want to make something happen then you can’t wait until the new year, you have to start now. However, with all the talk of resolutions bouncing around the web it made me think a little bit harder about what the new year is going to bring for me.

I’ve also said that I have no plans to write a new list and hit the road as the world’s most famous vagrant again anytime soon…

But I got to thinking about how focusing it was to have all of my goals laid out in front of me and I realized what a disservice I’m doing to myself if I don’t at the very least write a new list. How lame would it be if I managed to do all these amazing things before I even hit my 28th birthday and then just gave up?

With that in mind I’m going to start working on a new list today and I would love to hear about the kinds of things that you guys think should make the list! (But, once more…I’m not in any kind of frame of mind start sleeping on park benches again!)

Here are the first five that came to mind on my end:

1. Wash windows on a sky scraper
2. Play a song on stage with a band
3. Blow glass
4. Juggle fire
5. Geocache Alaska

I’m done.


P.S. Now that I think about it I didn’t have any intention to become a homeless wanderer LAST time I made a list. It’s tough to have things written down and not want to bounce out the door and go do them…

Just for the record. Bookingbuddy really is a pretty rad website if you’re looking to plan a trip. It actually allows you to search most of the top website from one location. Pretty handy! But more importantly…our new affiliation with bookingbuddy.com means all you have to do to help out Amtrekker is click on one of their ads and sign up for an awesome newsletter filled with travel deals! Thanks everyone!
