Bucket List

After Tin Man was listed for his transplant, he came up with a bucket list he wanted to do after he recovered from his transplant.

Some included
  • drive a monster truck
  • visit New York City again
  • NASCAR speedways
Even though he wasn't able to do anything on his list, we were able to have his picture posted in a monster truck during a show.   And we had his photo on the Donate Life car at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

After he died, the kids and I decided to come up with our own bucket lists.  Both as a family, and as individuals. We made the rule that our family bucket list doesn't stop when the kids turn 18.  We still have to get together once a year to check off at least 1 item.

Family Bucket
  • Grand Canyon (again)
  • Petrified Forest
  • Disney World
  • Cruise
  • New York City
  • Washington DC
  • Mount Rushmore
  • Yellowstone
  • Yosemite (again)
  • Take train across country
  • Deep sea fishing
  • Visit London
  • Machu Picchu
  • Major League Lacrosse game
  • Own chickens

As we think about things they are added to the list.  


  1. That's neat that they posted his photo on a Nascar car. That's a sport that really seems to care about people.

    1. Yeah. The kids loved being able to hang out with the driver (who made the decision to donate his mother's organs when he was just 18.) and talk to him about their dad and everything he went through.
