My Life Goals (some of them at least)

  • have a pet raccoon (I’ve had this goal for a while but the idea for this list came when I watched this video)
  • climb Denali (aka. Mt. McKinley in Alaska is the highest point in N. America)
  • Live in NY City for 3 months (my more specific plan is to watch the 14 hour NY documentary series with the kids and spend the days going to all the places mentioned in the doc, experiencing them)
  • Live in Hawaii and surf for 3 months
  • Build a custom built home with our family tree engraved on the wall
  • Have a pool in the basement
  • Swim in that pool every morning wearing a speedo
  • Have 30%+ chest/back tattoo coverage
  • Create enough assets so that my grandchildren will never have to work for money
  • Stay under 190 pounds
  • Climb to Everest base camp (this is 3,000+ feet higher than the summit of Rainier) I used to want to make it to the summit but I think that this goal has diminished to below 1%
  • Get each of my kids to the summit of Rainier
  • Go bungee jumping
  • Learn the butterfly stroke
  • Learn how to do that twisty somersault thing that swimmers do to turn around
  • Go vertical ice climbing
  • Swim across Lake Washington
  • Bike across America (we tried this on 2002 and made it 500 miles and then got hit by a car)
  • Hike the Appalachian Trail with the family (2,100 Miles from Georgia to Maine, I would like to try and do it in less than 4 months)
  • Understand why I don’t cry
  • Take a counseling class
  • Take a cooking class
  • Learn how to cook coconut curry
  • It would be really cool to climb Rainier with a grand kid.

  1. coconut curry is the bomb…
    and the twisty somersault thing is called a flip turn, and not hard to do when you’re wearing a speedo in your basement.

  2. yeah, I’m not 100% decided on whether to go for the Indian or Thai variety. Yeah flip turn and the way I see it there will be a lot of things that will get easier wearing a speedo in my basement.

  3. ps – counseling will help you understand why you don’t cry. Then lots of tears will come and you will be a much richer and more beautiful person from them. (not just saying this about you, same goes for everyone)

  4. I did a really good yellow Indian coconut curry with potatoes, carrots and chicken. Came out awesome, house smelled like curry for a full week. You’ve been warned.

  5. i’m about 165 right now. that gives me about 25lbs to work with. the reason why i chose 190 was because i can not conceive of myself being over 190 and living a healthy lifestyle. i almost chose 200 just because it’s a round number but in the end precision prevailed. my current general plan is that if i ever go above my target weight i go 100% vegan for 30 days until i am below it. repeat.

  6. I think you should incorporate that speedo into some of your other goals.

    have your pet raccoon (wear a speedo)
    climb Denali (wearing a speedo)
    Live in NY City for 3 months (having your only article of clothing be a speedo)
    Live in Hawaii and surf for 3 months (of course only wearing a speedo)
    Build a custom built home (wearing a speedo and maybe a tool belt)
    Have 30%+ chest/back tattoo coverage (of a speedo)
    Create enough assets so that my grandchildren will never have to work for money (and that they will be able to have an endless supply of speedos)
    Climb to Everest base camp (wearing a speedo-okay maybe you could wear it on your head for this one.)
    Get each of my kids to the summit of Rainier (all wearing speedos)
    Go bungee jumping (in a speedo)
    Go vertical ice climbing (in a speedo)
    Bike across America (in a speedo)
    Hike the Appalachian Trail with the family (all wearing speedos)
    Understand why I don’t cry (maybe its because you don’t wear a speedo enough?)
    Take a counseling class (in a speedo)
    Take a cooking class (in a speedo)
    Make coconut curry (in a speedo)
    It would be really cool to climb Rainier with a grand kid (both wearing speedos)

    Just a thought. (Not of you in a speedo though.)
