101 Things in 1001 Days

This is my official 101 Things in 1001 Days page.  I figured this is going to take a while, so it needs more then just a post. I posted the original list on August 17th 2009 which would make my end date May 14th 2012 (both Mondays oddly enough).   Below is a count down to the end date.  I’ll scratch things off as I do them and feel free to suggest other activities to replace things I already do like “Plan the Yearly Tahoe Trip.”
