What we're about

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature. ~ Helen Keller

Hello! I have lived in the Northeast area before, and recently moved to CT from the Dallas, TX area. There are a lot of treasures in the Northeast, from History, outdoor adventures and many others that we can do and enjoy in this area (and beyond) that don't cost a lot of money, that we can do from afew hours, to a day or more.

I have created this group for Dave & I to be able to do with others those activities on our bucket list, that we have wanted to do but have not had the chance to, or we have been afraid to do. Its to also share with others activities and events we have done before, and learn about other activities that we would like to do, to take me and others out of our comfort zone into new adventures.

This group will be for all members to participate, since everyone has that one or more thing(s) that they have always wanted to do, and perhaps put off due to being afraid, or not having others to do it/them with. Therefore if you have an idea/suggestion for an activity on your bucket list please let us know. An event will be created, and you most likely will host that activity event, or we can find someone to do it for us.

Activities where children can be involved will be indicated as such, and if age specific to also indicate so. This will also be family friendly when activities can be so.

As such all members joining are REQUIRED TO POST A CLEAR PICTURE of themselves: For security reasons, organizers to know who is going to the event, also many times there a many members with the same common names and so differentiating for organizers is good, and also being a social group so others know who you are.

Some of the activities or events will be:

- Organize and or host an event: Any event, Charity event

- Horse back riding

- Budgee jumping

- Sky diving

- Zipling

- Learning Salsa Dancing, ball room dancing, Country dancing or any other kind of dance

- Going to a museum, and museum events

- Visiting historical sites: In an around the northeast area and or beyond (Alot to do with the Beginning of this country In PA, Newport Mansions, NY

- Wine tasting

- Kayaking, surfing, water-balloning, Fly-fishing, water rafting, Skiing

- Running a Marathon of any distance

Happy Martin Luther King Day Everyone!! Stay Safe, Stay Warm And Be You!

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. ~ MLK As the new year has come around, we are in one of the most difficult times in the world around us, in terms of the relationships amongst ourselves, from the communities we live in, to the countries we live in and the world as a whole. Somehow we find ourselves having intolerance in whatever form that might be with our sisters and brothers. On this day when we remember Dr. Martin Luther King that called all of us to action, to not stand by and be silent about things that matter, let us look within ourselves and find a way however small to make a difference in our community, our regions, our states, our country and or the world at large. We are all in this together, and as Dr. MLK says ‘life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ The time is always right to do what is right and so let us all together commit in some way, to carry each other up and not put each other down, to light the light that drives out darkness, to strive towards equal justice everywhere because injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, to embrace our sister, our brother our SHE, our HE and all in-between, especially just as we are. As Mahatma Gandhi said “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”, , let us be that change we wish to see in the world. Because in the end: “ The ultimate measure of a man/woman is not where he/she stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he/she stands at times of challenge and controversy”. “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King It starts with a pebble in the ocean, and together with many other pebbles, it turns into a wave, and next, and then next….. How are you making a difference in your own way in your neighborhood, community, region, state, country and the world at large?
