    • Thank you, Madison! πŸ™‚

      By a survival trip, I mean hiking out into the middle of nowhere, with almost no food or water, and surviving out there with just a few survival tools I bring with me, and see how it goes πŸ™‚ (I would probably go with a guy/ male … to be safer.) I would find/build my own shelter, hunt/gather food, purify water, build fires (both with and without matches), etc. It would be EXTREMELY difficult, but well worth it and probably very eye-opening for me. I’ve always had an interest in those kinds of things, so it would be stepping it up quite a few notches, haha. Although, I’d probably have to overcome my fear of spiders before I did something lie that πŸ˜‰

      You know, I’m not sure. I’ve gotten a lot better over the years, though. I used to scream EVERY time I saw one (literally). And now I don’t do that anymore, haha. I don’t scream or squeal now, I just start panicking and then kill it πŸ™‚

      • That sounds cool! πŸ˜€ In my mind, I would love to do something like that; I just don’t think I’d be very successful doing it in reality XD I’d probably do ok if my dad came along, though. Even though, I’m a really picky eater and don’t care for bugs… ;P

        I’ve gotten better too, as long as I’m not startled by one. πŸ˜‰ I usually call one of my little brothers to come kill it for me! XD

      • You never know until you try! πŸ™‚ Haha I’m a picky eater too … and, yeah, no eating bugs. Noppity nope nope.

        Me too! That’s the way to do it πŸ˜€

  1. great list! and fantastic that you have already accomplished some of the items. I just crossed my first thing off last year after visiting Greece. Next up, Italy!

  2. Love your list! I love the idea of a survival trip. My brothers gone on a few. It would be so cool to go with him. haha, actually I do the same thing when I see a spider. I just killed a huge one in our kitchen. I try to act brave, but inside I’m like “oh my gosh, a spider!!” haha. good luck πŸ™‚

  3. Yes. I’ve always (umm like in the past two years) wanted to go on a survival trip, be adept at self-defense, and to serve precious kids in Africa or somewhere! And pull-ups… Right now my goal is one. πŸ˜› But I am getting stronger, so I hope to blast past that goal in the future! I loved LOTR; my best friend and I watched all of them together in about ten disjointed sessions – basically whenever we had time we would watch a half hour or so, and it took forever to finish them! …. good times, good times. πŸ˜‰
