Oh hi! It’s me again.

One of the reasons I started this blog was to inspire and influence myself and my family to go out and explore all that the Finger Lakes has to offer.

My goal is to avoid squandering our time in the most beautiful part of NY state doing the same old things and traveling the same old roads.

So if you’re reading this, there’s a chance I may inspire and influence you to do that same. Right?

But I need your help.

I have been wanting to make a Finger Lakes Bucket List for a long time now, and never got around to it.

I’m using Bucket List plugin which makes it pretty easy to keep add, edit, and cross items off.

You’ll see there are already some things I’ve added and crossed off.

These are things I’ve thought of off the top of my head. Some of them, I’ve already done, but didn’t take photos or really think about writing about here, so it’s a good excuse to do them again.

I’ve ordered things by lake– I want to be able to embed each bucket list in posts and pages that are related, so I’ve categorized them that way.

So, here’s where you come in.

What should I add?

I probably won’t add every single suggestion to my list :) but I know you’ve seen and done some awesome stuff here in the Finger Lakes and you’re dying to tell me about them.

Let me know your suggestions in the comments, or on Facebook, Twitter, or via email. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Here goes:
