  1. I can totally show you how to change oil. I actually need to do mine, but I’ve been putting it off. It’s not that it’s difficult-I’m just lazy.

    Also, I hope you find it easier to volunteer with your Habitat chapter than it is to volunteer with mine. I tried a few times to get a date to go, but they only had one available per month or so-and a lot of the time it was during the week. So frustrating to try and help someone!

  2. You want this all done in a year?! Some worth causes – love it!

      The chances of some of them ( like dog sledding and hot air balloon) are unlikely to happen before March 2013 because of budget, but it’s also just a reminder of things I want to explore in life 🙂

  3. I can help you with #20. I’ve done the polar bear plunge the past two years in a row.
    Also, let me know if you find out anything about Habitat for Humanity. That was on my old 101 in 1001 list and I’d love to get involved.

  4. This list is so great! I did a hot air balloon ride and it was one of the coolest experiences of my life. Also, Scrabble competition?! That’s so amazing!
