Day Zero Project: 101 things in 1001 Days

Okay, i have been thinking about this a lot.  I know I have an issue  procrastination and if I actually do start something I seem to have a problem with following through on things so this maybe be the slap in the head incentive I need.

So I’m biting the bullet and going to do it!  So far I haven't come up with 101 things.  I have 46 but it’s a start. The Day Zero website is broken for me so I guess I will start my list over there another day (maybe even tomorrow).

I hope nobody minds me visiting their lists and maybe stealing borrowing some inspiration from them.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Bungee jumping and sky diving are so NOT happening!

Too many to comment on all them. I obvisously like the camping and bushwalking/hiking one. People seem to not going outside as often. Indian meal cooking from scratch sounds good. Vegetable garden...mmm...we have one (sort of) and it so good..always get hundreds of fresh baby tomatos. Some years can't eat them fast enough

Sounds perfect! Wow, indian meal from scratch sounds like a good idea - I always wuss out and go with the jars. The good thing is that some things can be combined too - reading all those books makes perfect blogging material. Good luck!
