Most Do-able Outdoor Bucket List Items

We all know how gratifying it is to get out in the great outdoors and everyone has things that they would like to do in their life but sometimes they think it is outside of what they have time for or what they can afford. These are some of the most common outdoors bucket list items that people can easily do but usually haven’t because they think it’s not not possible.

Summit a Peak Worth Bragging About

While some of these things can take some practice and training but checking off other items on the bucket list can be the best way to build up to the big peaks. Some people are in shape to go climb a big peak like Denali or Foraker right off the bat but if you are like most people it takes some time. Start with looking up the tallest peak in your state. If you live in some places like the Midwest states, these might not be stunningly tall, but that is ok. Everyone has to start somewhere. Find some peaks close enough to where you already live and start knocking them out, those around you will generally know the taller peaks close to you. As you go, up the challenge and push yourself. The payoff is sweet and well worth it.

Water Works

Most people quite enjoy swimming and water sports as much as they do hiking. Some of the most common outdoors bucket list items include Rafting the Snake River, Swimming the English Channel, Utah’s Homestead Crater, Iceland’s Blue Lagoon and so much more. Some of these are very simple and easy to do. In some cases with water you may also want some training, for example swimming the English Channel. Hundreds of swimmers everyone successfully cross the english channel. This may take a little bit of practice before attempting it. If you search something like “affordable custom pools in Naples” on Google, you can find really great ways to get you ready to check those items off.

New skills

Among the most common outdoor bucket list items include learning a special skill. The most common examples include things like learning to surf, fly fishing, learn to rappel, get scuba certified, mountain biking, skiing and so much more. There are countless groups that are willing to teach these skills at a very affordable rate, in areas where these are common you can find people usually on Airbnb actually. There is an “Experiences” portion of the app which has many of these kind of experiences for very affordable rates. There are often locals very willing to help out and teach you. These are some of the most rewarding because they are things that you can do later in many different places. If you get scuba certified, you are able to do anywhere in the world and have amazing experiences everywhere.

When modern artificial surf parks first became a thing a few years ago, everyone was drooling over the fact that, they too, could someday surf a perfect barrel. However, it quickly became clear that wave pools were a beacon of the elite, and it took until 2016 for one to be opened to the public in the US. Austin, Texas’s NLand Surf Park was the first to break that mold when it opened its doors to the public in 2016. RELATED: Jay Peak Resort For Sale In Coming Weeks Kelly Slater Wave Co.
