The 50 List

As you’ll see the 50 List contains many different activities which at first glance look impossible. I have split them into two categories. Extreme and others.

Extreme activities are things that make you think about stepping outside that comfort zone.

A few of the activities on the list I have already done in the past and the reason I want to do them again is because the last time I did them I was walking. Now that I use the wheelchair to get around I’d like to see if I can still do them. As for meeting John Cleese, well, meeting him can be done sitting down or standing up but the last time I met him I fell flat on my face and he had to pick me up off the floor.
