Bucket list

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The one thing that I found out is it doesn't hurt to have a bucket list and complete it especially with ideas and plans that are over 20 years ago.

In this episode I tell you some of the things that Hoyman and I planned and should have did when we had the freedom and ability to actually go do it but now we sit 20 some years older looking back and saying we should have did it.

Tune in and see what those ideas were coming to realize we're not too old to complete it

Yeah, everyone, welcome to tangents with Toby, where I record as I drive in the southeast part of Saskatchewan what is going on, what is new, and headed out east and I thought, you know, let's crack open a brand new episode and let's get going. Yes, brand new, we brand new episode. I do have to say it took me a little bit longer to come up with this particular item. It was just one of those weird things that I never thought too much about until last what was the last night? I think it was? I was watching a bunch of videos on instagram and it kind of cluded woman and I. We had so many ideas, plans, things like that when we were younger, Aka at the turn...

...of the S, and we never actually went through with it with some of the idea's, for example, move into Alberta, moving too like one of the big resorts, like damned, like Louise kind of area, like the beautiful part of the rockets, get jobs there. I don't know what whyman would it did? I would have probably chamber maid because that's what I was doing at the time. So it was just one of those things that we kind of threw out, which to where I got that idea from is. I remember yesterday watching a video. It's like, yeah, I really want to go mount like you with pointment. So it is what it is, and I just thought back. It's like yeah, I remember the like for three summers in a row I saved my plan. I got in detail outlet...

...of a weekend in canno see white bear. And just in case you don't know, which you don't know, white bear in Saskatchewan, not white bear in Minnesota. Two totally different things too, totally different like everything. And so Canosi Lake White Bear. They have hiking trails through the forest area. The weird part about this is where I live it's flat, there's like nothing. You can go an our east and you get into not mountains, not like massive, huge hills, but enough hills to make you walk in. There's walking path serious trees everywhere. is almost like a mini forest on the prairies, which is absolutely cool. Yeah, he was to hit puberty because...

I went. Yeah, so they have a campsite, they have trails, walking, biking, hiking, water park which for some Odterieson now expecially close, but they have a lot of stuff out there. To me I thought that would be a possibly great idea for whyman and I to pack up her mote bikes in head out in that direction. So I emit or back in the day, I wrote them, got the information, got the maps, got the pricing, campsite lined up ready to go. Saved a bunch of money to pay for camping, food, travels expenses, alcohol, just to have a weekend being Wilburn Hoyman just having fun mountain biking on these trails.

And every year they was felt for it, but every year I always wanted to do this. It's something that would have never been overly expensive and it was basically right in our backyard. Reality, there's tons of things that you as a person can do that's in your backyard. It's just unbelievable. Like there are guys who ride motocross that travel an hour to try a different track, an hour and a half to try a different track. So it's camping is a great way of experiencing the different environments and settings that you're used to. So that's what I wanted to do. Poyman then approaches me and says, you know, what we should do? Kind of have it on her...

...bucket list. It's like what we should save our money for six months, pack our things, move out to bath Blake Louise, live there for a couple of years, enjoy the sites, enjoy what we love doing, get jobs and do that. And at the time, you know, it was one of those things I was young, kind of hesitant about society life in general, traveling to new places, starting over again. So I said yes. I don't know if he was, if he was really truthful about it, like he wanted to do that. Now that I look back at the...

...situation, the IPA, everything like that, it was something I should at least try. If it was for one, two three months, then be it. At that time everything would have been hell of a lot cheaper living arrangements. Well, actually, I can't really say that, because in two thousand was it six? NOPE, two thousand and five. When my buddy cody and I went out to Vancouver for a holiday, we are taking a look at some of the houses and things like that in that area and there was a four bedroom for bath house in White Rock, BC, built in the side of the mountain and that was twenty two hundreds month and we thought that was just an absolutely outstanding outland. This is the kicker and some of...

...you you're probably thinking, well, that's not bad, twenty two hundred compared to prices now that people are paying here in Saskatchewan. Yeah, it's actually really not bad. I can you hear that? Those are like little rocks falling from a semi. I had to get out from behind it do it. So really, twenty two hundred dollars late in Regina right now you could probably get a one bedroom to bath condo for the exact same price, and again in a good part of town. But that's besides of so for that price, now that I look back, it's actually not bad. Oh,...

...just to compare it, what US paying in Melville at the time for one bedroom, one bath? My level house was on top. Actually it was quite nice on the inside. It was about, is it, two hundred and seventy five dollars a month, so almost twozeros more to live in B seen than in Melbourne. Such a just the price. Thinking of them Lake Louise Houses, I just absolutely cringe. So take it a look back at our idea reality. It wasn't that bad. If even if we had one more person that was part of our clients, would have been three of us. We could have packed up, whyman's vehicle, trailer, our bags, everything like that, with our mountain bikes, headed out there. Drove ten...

...twelve hours hit up these places. We could enjoy a little bit of a freedom, the fresh air of the forest, the mountains, downhill biking. Who knows what would have happened, where life would have been? And that is what if the things that does kind of eat my brain, saying what if? Hence that one show that I did about what if I played Ice Hockey? What would have happened? What if I did this, what would happen? So I know for a fact everything would have changed. The whole world would have changed, situations would have changed. I would have changed everything. But the whole point about it is, if you have a chance opportunity...

...to do it, why not? If pointment and I failed and we were struggling, our parents could have gave us money to get back home and we could have read started our lives that we had. But the problem now, despite the having kids, pointmen having kids, US both of us having families, responsibilities. It's sometimes just it's crazy that times, back in the day, we just did a want to venture because we didn't want to really fail one thing I do have to say is failing as part of life and if...

...you have the chance, an opportunity to actually go do it, do it. You'll never be that young, you'll never have that original idea again. If you can succeed at your ideas, your goals, bucket lists, it will never ever eat you up again. And if you do fail, take that opportunity to make it into a positive. You know what to do, so why not do it? If you're going down the road and there's a left and the right, and the right one is nothing more than a circle back to the main road, then all of a sudden you hit that little section left or right, you don't cool you don't keep going right, you go left. You know the rights going to take you back to where you...

...are, so you take the left and eventually will be on your right. That's what life is. That's the experience that you need to do. So just think about that for a little bit. You'll actually see what I mean. So if you have any chance opportunity, do it. Well you guys. That is my word of encouragement today. Do it. If you have any questions, comments tangents with toby at gmailcom follow me on twitter, tangents, toby and everything else social media, or head over the bio dot link, forward slash twan engines. I didn't renew my website, probably Austin. So I'll see you later, but thanks for tuning in and I will catch you next week on another episode of Tangents with Toby. And before I leave, I received a tweet from somebody that I thought was kind of interesting,...

...and it's where as a prospers? Where is it? Where is she? No, okay, so there was a twitter account that said in their tweet fair few people saying that we aren't the first podcast to record from a moving card. Citing bogus references would encourage people to do own research. Cheers. So then, why? Of course, then Evan, feeling kind of tired,...

...totally or Sir Raja Ta, sire are a Ja ta h said you boy, seeing this to myself and plots by randy or driving with dranny. We gotta GETS THE PODCASTING car gangs together and give these pudd love and gentleman a piece of our pots. And, you know, something, each of their own. But never ever think you're the first, because I can guarantee somebody else has already done it. I've been doing this particular style show driving for like nine years. Most people they know that I personally have five kids and I've am even kids before that. I just do not have the ability...

...to record at home, so I do it as I drive. I'm my own studio. I have my own background music, called it my body from during the time. Hope seems he's only he's not allowed well the radio, but I just it's one of those things. I think Randy and I need to get our podcast network up and going and start promoting people when they drive, their record when they drive. So until then, you guys, thanks for tuning in and I will catch you next time right here in tangents with toby. And of course, next time I will be recording as I drive, so I will catch you on the flip side. Baste chuckers,.
