With the warm summer weather gone and winter not too far off, I’m sure everyone is doing what they can to soak up being outside as much as possible. We all miss summer once it’s gone and say how we should have done this activity or gone to this place. So, here is my bucket list, a list of things that I hope to get done before it’s too late.
As long as it is not raining, I want to get out at least once a day and use my electric skateboard (boosted board). I like going really fast. I can hit speeds up to 30 or 40 mph. To protect my body in case I fall, I wear a pair of adaptive shorts when I go skateboarding. They’re heavily padded and skid proof.
I really enjoy hitting golf balls at Top Golf. Golf is a great sport that is very adaptable. Just about anyone, regardless of his or her ability, can find a way to swing a club and hit some golf balls. I want to keep hitting regularly before it gets too cold, although the COVID-19 pandemic has made that a little difficult.
I really love to ride my motorcycle and riding is best enjoyed while it’s still relatively warm out. I own a three-wheel Can-Am Spyder. I want to experience those adrenaline rushes as much as I can. If I get that, I’ll be a happy little camper and it’ll hold me over until spring comes.
