The contest rules require that you post your financial bucket list as part of your blog post entry. I'm not sure what that is, exactly, since I understand that a bucket list is a list of things to do before you die. Quite honestly, if I die and my last student loan debt isn't paid off, I could care less. (I wouldn't be sticking my family with it either - my life insurance would more than cover it). So I think for a bucket list, I should talk about something I'm saving for that I really want to have or do before I die.
To be completely honest, I've never hunted in my life. But I'd like to, and I really want my children to as well. I live in a rural area and hunting is part of the ethnic heritage that I want them to appreciate. So part of the appeal of Namibia is the requirement that I become a reasonably proficient hunter over the next thirteen years, and pass along the conservationist values that hunting entails to my children.

I haven't actually started saving for this yet - I'm waiting for my finances to stabilize a bit first (my post about how I've spent >2K in the last month on baby stuff is coming soon, really). Maybe this post will be the kick in the butt I need to keep myself accountable, since my safari dreams will only become a reality if I start working on them now.
