In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Too Big To Fail.”

Tell us about something you would attempt if you were guaranteed not to fail (and tell us why you haven’t tried it yet)


I have a bucket list filled with numerous detailed items taking me around the world enjoying locations and specific things to be done. Last on my list is parachuting out of a perfectly good airplane.

Parachuting is last on my list, simply because if there is a malfunction with the main chute and my second will not deploy, I will be extremely upset, as I spiral towards the Earth ending my chances to complete my bucket list.

As a retiree travel blogger touring the US, voicing my wisdom, opinion, and thoughts about the retirement lifestyle and life in general. I'm an aspiring pre-published indie author of baby boomer romance and adventures with a whimsical comedic side. I photograph wildlife and landscapes, mountain, biking, kayaking, hiking, and backpacking. I travel the back roads and highways of America, Canada, and Mexico, documenting my adventures via print and photography.

  1. I’d like too flying with a parachut but… I have a pain in my backand I think I could do… however I have “flied” with the canopy tour in Costa Rica… and now I have only a point in my Bucket list…. go back to China but only the Yunnan province which is very nice and with places named by UNESCO.

    1. I have detailed my tour locations of Asia, however, I will make not of the Yunnan Province to research. The canopy tour definitely counts.

  2. Ahaha…great post. I totally agree!

    1. Thanks Dawn!

  3. Loved being a Paratrooper in the military. Retiring this fall for good. It’s been a great ride!

    1. Thanks for your service and stay safe. I had the opportunity to return to the US for Paratrooper school when I was in Germany and declined.

  4. What a scary thought…
