What we're about

Having recently moved to Seattle for work, and not knowing if this will be a lifetime move or just a couple of years, I wanted to set about ensuring that I experience as many of the delights that the PNW has to offer as possible. The logical approach to this being to create a bucket list and then break it down into a manageable timeline thereby ensuring that seasonal activities are not forgotten or overlooked, and I can take others on the journey with me. I will be linking with a facebook group in order to announce and manage all events, so would suggest that you look to join/follow both groups in order to receive regular and full updates on activities. The Facebook Group can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/SeattleBucketList2018

So... The first step of this journey was creating the list. For 11 days over Christmas and New Year I left the list open to suggestions and additions by all, then on 1st January I started looking to break down those events by month, and select suitable dates, with a view to then publishing a calendar of planned events and activities. The aim being to bring people together to explore and experience the best that the PNW has to offer and make new friends while doing so. I will keep this page regularly updated with what events are occurring/upcoming and photo’s from recent activities, please do join me and whoever else decides to participate. You can pick and choose which bits you want to do, or join me in doing all. Or you can just share your pictures and experiences with everyone else as you make your own way through the list.

Feel free to drop a note if you have special requests on dates, suggestions for activities that can be grouped together, or additions to the list. Also feel free to share the page with your PNW friends, family and colleagues, anyone that may be interested in joining us as we embark upon this journey of exploration. This is supposed to be a social endeavour so lets interact and make 2018 the most epic year ever! #lesstalkmoreaction (https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/lesstalkmoreaction?source=note)
