November. It’s a time in my neck of woods when summer is in the rear view mirror and cold weather, snow and ice are right around the corner. Also, football is front and center, Thanksgiving is approaching, you can run through corn mazes and pumpkin themed food and drinks are aplenty.
More recently it’s a time when you’ll see many guys growing out their facial hair, more specifically growing a mustache, some in very unique ways. It’s Movember. Movember spans the month of November and helps to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other men’s health issues.
I was nominated by Leah of Leah Travels to create a Manly Bucket List and help the Movember cause. Well without further ado:
Driving through Rotorua in New Zealand and on I-75 in Knoxville, Tennessee, I’ve passed by the most common places to zorb. I’ve missed the chance to roll down a hill in a transparent ball filled with water. Hopefully not on the next drive by.
Get Out on the Open Road in Oceania
I’ve done some road tripping on the North and South Island’s of New Zealand, becoming addicted almost immediately, never putting the camera down. I hope to expand on that in New Zealand by going for a ride on the Forgotten World Highway and moving over to Australia to experience the Great Ocean Road and more.
Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Sydney
Not long ago I was in Sydney for a short time, getting my first taste of Australia. I only had time to walk onto the well-known Harbour Bridge. I was in amazement. My eyes would be open even wider if I could do the Harbour Bridge climb.
Attend a Denver Broncos Home Game
I’ve been a hard-core Broncos fan since the 1980’s and John Elway days. Watching The Drive and The Fumble got me hooked on the Bronco Orange. I’ve seen Bronco games in person since I was a kid in Cleveland, Buffalo and Pittsburgh countless times, but never in the Mile High City. One day I want to hop on that plane towards the Rocky Mountains and experience the thin air and Denver football. 🙂
An Irish Coffee In Ireland
Probably my most specific bucket list item. I picture myself having an Irish coffee in a small-town in Ireland on a cool morning with lots of green grass, hills and trees around. The closest thing I’ve come to that is enjoying an Irish coffee or two during happy hour at Buena Vista in San Francisco. I’m waiting for my ticket to be punched for the whiskey train to Dublin.
