Tim Ferriss on "access to rich experiences"

Posted by JimmyJimmy

Those struggling with lack of motivation and/or funding for their goals… You should head over to and read Avi Solomon's interview with Tim Ferriss:

"And what you find is that the deferred life plan which is based on retirement and redeeming these experiences, that are most valuable in your peak physical years, is a false paradigm. It's a very Faustian bargain and bad bet. So ...

Hold on to your hats....

Been watching a lot of friends (the TV series) lately where Monica and Rachel seem to down these on a regular basis. So ... that got me thinking that I really need to try one of these.

My boyfriend and I hiked a few trails in the Poconos quite spur of the moment in October 2010. It was gorgeous and a great bonding experience for the two of us.

Beach Ride Completed!

I went riding on the beach March 22, 2011. We went on Island Beach State Park, NJ. I took a horse named Lily, she is older but an all around great horse and I'm glad she was with us for the experience.

Not only did I ride on the beach, but my first experiencing galloping took place this day too! My first gallop - on the beach! It was ...

Something majestic?

Posted by MrHakalaMrHakala

I probably just caught the seasons last Northern lights ”show” (Aurora Borealis) out on the back yard :). I’ve seen Northern lights a few times before, but tonight’s show was something spectacular you might even say majestic. Seeing the lights dance among the moon and stars you could say it set the sky on fire. The faint call from a nearby night owl really made the magical moment almost perfect.

For the unique part the Finnish Population Register Center and their Name Service was a ...

BucketList to the rescue

Posted by MrHakalaMrHakala

Got this great link/image from a friend. I guess the original meaning of the picture is that the Internet is one of the greatest distractions of the “modern age” (to which I have to agree :) Your daily to-do list of chores always seems to come in second place. Even more so now if/when we have Internet on our mobile phones.
