You can ski in Morocco...

in reality it's only going to be a few runs or half day at best...  I wouldn't bring all my gear to do this...

^^ like Patagonia.  Do it just to say you did it?  I'd only do that type of thing if I'd had unlimited money and had seen everything before.
 
Besides, if you're going to ride somewhere that's mostly hot wouldn't you want to hit Hawaii?

If you've never swam in the bioluminescent bay in Vieques, Puerto Rico, I highly recommend adding that to your bucket list.

I did this last year and it was one of the best experiences I've ever had.

I want to

- Try sand boarding
- Bungee jumping (I've got skydiving 5 times, but haven't tried bungee jumping yet...go figure)
- Rock climbing in Arizona (I've done the Gunks on the East Coast a few times, but I'm still a newb.)
- Travel to a looooong list of countries
- Kite board, snow AND water

My bucket list includes a long list of mountains to climb. I'm currently working on Colordo's 54 14,000 foot peaks. (Already have 23 down). Also want to climb Denali, Kilamanjaro, Aconcagua, Cho Oyu and of course the mother of them all Everest.

Got a friend working on the CO 14'ers, I can't remember how many he's up to. If I lived there it would be on my list for sure.

I'm lucky enough to have done quite a bit of my list already, mostly it was travelling. Would love to do a heli trip at least once. Other than that just check of more travel...

I`ve done Chile and Argentina already.  Las Lenas and Cerro Castor in AR and Termas de Chillan and El Colorado in CL.

I will be doing NZ before I do Africa...
