The collective MTF bucket list
 
The idea of this thread to write down the things you want to do one day before you die - that is to say, what is on your ´bucket list´ and why those things pique your interest. I´d also like it if people described some of the interesting experiences they have had in their lives, either unexpectedly or while doing things they had wanted to do for a long time. F.i. perhaps someone has already done something that was on the bucket list of someone else and share that experience :)

I´ll start. In april I went to Morocco with a whole group of fellow students and while we were there, one of the things we did was ride camels towards a Berber camp in the desert. It was not something I ever had the express intent on doing but riding on those camels with 60 fellow students on our way to a site in the desert under an immaculate starry sky... it is something that I will never forget. The sense of camaraderie and wonder was strong among us.

Something that is on my bucket list is the camino, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. While I am not really religious and certainly not catholic, the idea of going on a pilgrimage on foot to clear my head and overthink my life is appealing to me. The fact that Northern Spain is full with beautiful old cities helps as well.

Please, come and share your stories.

That's deep man. Goes to show, never judge a person by their username, avatar, sig, post count..


Don't really have desires, I'm one of those people who has already done all he has wanted to do and am genuinely satisfied. So I'm not sure what I'm doing here, but if you asked me under torture, then I'd do a personal Man vs. Food challenge, and eat all the best food from the best restaurants from around the World. Since the media says the US is the best with giant quantities of food consumption, I'd try there first. Personal belief; there's no greater pleasure in this World than the pleasure that comes with food.

I'll start by taking the list out of my bucket and stuffing it with fried chicken.

I've always wanted to be a cult leader. We would worship and communicate with the Sun. To start, we will build our own temple and establish some rules. Some rules I have thought of:

1. All members must treat each other fairly.
2. The use of firearms is seen as cowardly and is forbidden.
3. All members must meet at 12:30 am each day.
4. If you disobey your elders, your life is forfeit.
5. If you leave the group, your life is forfeit.
6. All prospects must undergo specific trials to test their worthiness. If they fail, they must never speak of us. If they do, their life is forfeit.

Motto: All glory to the Sun and his Brothers

Always wanted to try 3 in a bed, but 2 in a bed is as much as I can manage now.

Purchase a bucket and a notepad and make the concept a reality.
