Hi i have been building this site and done numourous posts on bucket list ideas and alsorts but have not gone over the basic one of what is a Bucket list.
A Bucket List should not just be a list of ideas that you would love to do before you die. Your Bucket List should be a list of things that you intend to and 100% believe that you will do before you die. There is no point making a bucket list and then putting it on the back burner and never getting around to ticking amything off of it and becoming a Bucket list under achiever like in the picture i have put below.
The whole point of my site and the words Bucket List in the first place are to get you motivated in to achieving your life goals. Writing up a bucket list and ticking off elements on it at regular intervals.
There are two Bucket lists you want to write up though. The first is the one that i have already mentioned. The one that is full of your life goals. The second though is a short term Bucket List say for the following summer or maybe a calender year. or one that is full of funny or crazy ideas that you would love to do.
The one to start with is probably the short term one because the ideas on this one are more likely to cost you less money and less time and you can get on with achieving immediatly.
So once you have written up your short term list it is time to get on with the serious business of sitting down and writing up your Bucket List for the long term. Do not get to stuck on this because you have to make it flexible astime goes by and some things on your list that you have not yet managed to achieve may become less important and appealing to you. So remember to keep your list so as you can delete and add items as time goes by. This does not mean that you have failed your list it just means that your priorities in lfe has changed and so will your Bucket List.
So the best thing you could do now is to get a pen and paper. Sit down and browse through our site. This hopefully will get you fired up to write and achieve your Bucket List as we have a whole variety of ideas to suit everybody. Good Luck.....

Where do you go with this one. Do i just go with the craziest ideas that i can think of that are just as likely to be your last bucket list idea you are ever likely to attempt and possably to achieve. Or do i go for some crazy bucket list ideas thatmay be a bit mad but are more achievable to a wider proportion of people.
Going down the crazy crazy path you would have ideas like.
1 Base jumpimg
2 Wingsuit flying
3 Jumping over cars as they come towards you
You are starting to get the idea here. This would soon become a list that excluded most people. So i have come up with a list that are a bit crazy but still should be on your to do list.
1 Back somersault off a cliff
You can get a huge thrill doing this one and a back somersault from a high platform is a lot easier than it sounds. It is all about commitment. As long as when you go for it you look for the water by tilting your head back and arching your back. Your legs will automatically come over your head and you will rotate. Your biggest worry from any amount of height is over rotating. So just get up there and go for it.
2 SWIM WITH JELLY FISH
This is one of those crazy come painful if it goes wrong ones. I have swam amongst alsorts of jeely fish and i can tell you it really keeps you on your toes. In my experience it is the little jelly fish that are only about the size of the palm of your hand will give you the worst sting. That is painful for days. The one you can see me handerling below are quite big but only pack a small amount of punch. So get in there with the jelly fish it will certainly get your heart racing.
I know this is on everyones Bucket list. The adrenalin rush you get as you are about to exit the plane is amazing and will live with you for ever. You can do your first parachut jump by going on a two day course and jump on the second day. This is exactly what we did at Headcorn in Kent. This is a must for any one with a bit of the adrenalin junkie in them. If you do not fancy the training you can always go straight for the tandem jump.
4 RIDE A RIVER BORE WAVE
This one is still on my list of to dos this year. We were going down to the river Severn in march to ride the severn bore. One big problem this year unfortunatly heavy snow over the weekend with the biggest spring tides. So with regret i had to put it off until june. If we get snow then i will be putting the house up for sale and will be emigrating. This is one of those Bucket List Ideas that has to be done a bit on the crazy side but still achievable
This is just a taster of what you can get up to if you are after some more crazy bucket list ideas. Then check out our idea pages as there are some gems for you there to put on your bucket list. So that is it for now i will be back soon with some more to do with everything Bucket List Ideas.
