50 New Things
This year I'm going to try to do at least 50 things I've never done before (I did not come up with this idea...but they say imitation is the highest form of flattery ;-). If you have ideas, feel free to make suggestions. I'll document them on the list below, with links if possible.
36. Played craps and roulette for the first time at a casino.
35. Visited the world's largest bead store (Shipwreck Beads).
34. Drove over a floating bridge
33. Flew in a helicopter!!
32. Visited Mount St. Helen's - wanted to see this for the past 30 yrs
I put my travel trailer to use for the weekend. We went to the Tacoma KOA, to give Faith her first camping trip. Not exactly roughing it with a heated pool and watching a movie in the camper, but we did cook out, enjoy some smores over the hot coals, and join the campgrounds pancake breakfast the next morning. Cozy in an 18' travel trailer, but fun! They are the best kids ever (in my unbiased opinion ;-)
I learned an important camping lesson while there. Never ever leave the drain while pumping the sewage tank. I went inside for a bit, when I came back out the attachment had come loose and there was all manner of unspeakable ick all over the drive. And nice and smelly to boot. Made for a very unpleasant cleanup. A lesson I won't soon forget...
