Colorado Bucket List Update: 1.5 Months Later

An update on the Colorado bucket list, for my own edification. I’ve done some other wonderful things that weren’t on the original list, so I’ll list them here:

  • Go to Garden of the Gods
  • Go to Colorado Springs and be pleasantly surprised by it.
  • Bike to a brewery
  • See a squirrel eat a piece of pizza.

Okay, time’s a ticking! Who wants to summit a fourteener or scare up a rattlesnake for me?

South Park-Related: Geez, you’re really slacking on the South Park section. Better get on it!

  • Go to Casa Bonita – See cliff divers. Don’t invite my friend Cartman.
  • Go to the South Park area of Colorado.
  • Go to Fairplay, Colorado, the town that South Park was based on. On the trip, refer to the town as “Foreplay.” Stop at a gas station and ask for directions to “Foreplay.” When I arrive in Fairplay, ask someone for their recommendation for places to eat in “Foreplay.” 

Outdoor Adventure-Related (Since being the least adventurous person in Boulder no longer makes me “cute” and “unusual”):

  • Go rock climbing inside  This was really fun! Now I’ve got to go outside!
  • Go rock climbing outside
  • Go downhill skiing.
  • Go horseback riding (because my palmist told me to!)
  • Not seriously injure myself going rock climbing or skiing
  • Go camping
  • Go camping with food other than Doritos and a 30-rack of PBR
  • Run the Boulder Bolder – Also fun, except for the part where I couldn’t move 4 days later and am feeling pretty over running for now.
  • Climb a Fourteener
  • See an elk
  • See a rattlesnake

Non-Potentially Life-Threatening Activities:

  • Camp at Lyons Folksfest
  • Tour the New Belgian Brewery in Fort Collins
  • Go to my college roommate’s cousin’s pie shop in Fort Collins “Me Oh My! Coffee and Pie”
  • Play music on Pearl St.
  • Play a gig in Denver – Soon! Wednesday night!
  • Go “to the mountains”
  • Familiarize self with Colorado wildflowers
  • Get invited to a neighborhood cookout/party
  • Befriend a baby – I got to dance with a baby at a square dance!


  • Go to a Rockies GameAll I’m saying, is I highly suggest doing this in a state where certain substances are legalized. Haha, I said “highly.”
  • Understand the difference between “LoDo,” “LoHi,” etc.
  • Go to the dog park that is also a beer garden
  • Go to the Grizzly Rose
  • Go to the Grizzly Rose Again
  • Go square dancing
  • Be in a band based out of Denver
  • Go to a rodeo
  • Go to another rodeo so I can say “This ain’t my first rodeo.”

Neighboring States: Again, get it together woman!

  • Go to New Mexico
  • Breaking Bad Tour of Albuquerque
  • Go to Wyoming
  • Go to Spiral Jetty on the Great Salt Lake
  • Go on a stupidly long road trip to LA to get a beer with Elizabeth Aubert
  • Go to Idaho
  • Go to Montana
