Personal Bucket List

Having dreams and goals in life creates energy, purpose, and something to look forward to. Without dreams we fall into the circular trap of driving to work to make money, making money to pay for the car and buying the car so we can get to work. Here are a few of the things, listed in no particular order, I am working on in my bucket list:

Currently In Process

  1. Build an airplane (after some research the Rans S20 Raven).
  2. Raising bees to make honey

  1. Paragliding introductory flight
  2. Scuba certified

  7. Be able to play every hymn in the hymn book

  1. Private Pilot’s license First flight May 5 2011. Started ground school at Cornerstone Aviation May 14, 2011. June 21, 2011 first solo take off and landings a KTVY Tooele airport. Earned a 100% passing score on the written exam. Solo flight from KSLC, Salt Lake International, to KLGU, Logan Ut, on Aug 23, 2011. Long cross country solo from KSLC, Salt Lake International, to KCDC, Cedar City UT and then KSGU, St. George Utah and back home again on September 03, 2011. Passed the oral and flight tests, administered by Clair Shaffer on June 28, 2012 flying out of KSLC, Salt Lake International Airport. There is a lot more to learn then I thought going into it. Many have said a pilots license is really a license to learn since there is so much you can and need to learn after getting your license. It has been a very fun and challenging hobby. This is the biggest bucket list item I have ever knocked off.
