Although I have lots of things I would like to see and do, my bucklet list does not contain any of those items.

My list consists of great ideas that I want to make a part of my life.

My bucket list is not an exercise in trivial pursuit.

I have a Been There And Done That List that gets longer each year, and there's nothing wrong with that.

What's really important is that I take great ideas and make them a part of my life. When that happens, my life truly becomes my message. Until then, I have work to do.

This list is in no particular order, and the location on the list does not indicate its relative importance.

I will live the rest of my life as if I am a great person.

I will live as if my dreams are possible and work each day to make them happen.

I will act as if I cannot fail.

I will doubt my limits.

I will be guilty of living my dreams.

I will take positive thinking as far as it is possible to go.

I will live as if there are no ordinary moments.

I will make every moment into a defining moment that reveals who I really am.

I will do small things with great love.

I will be God's love in the world. I am never more like God than when I am loving other people.

I will dare to call God my Father, and I will live as one of his children.

To whom much is given, much shall be required.

After it's all been said and done, will I have said more than I have done?

I don't get what I want, I get what I expect.

My Positive Bucket List contains life-changing ideas that form the foundation for my life. They are more than good ideas. They create a center around which I organize my life.

From time to time I will add to my bucket list of great ideas.

Feel free to come back and watch my bucket list grow.

Dr. Dave

Exit Only

See what it's like for a family to sail around the world on a small catamaran

Captain Save Our Souls

Awesome music video that captures the essence of what it's like to sail offshore in a catamaran around the world when conditions are less than perfect. David Abbott from Too Many Drummers sings the vocals, and he also edited the footage from our Red Sea adventures. This is the theme song from the Red Sea Chronicles.

Red Sea Blues

Sailing up the Red Sea is not for the faint of heart. From the Bab al Mandeb to the Suez Canal, adventures and adversity are in abundance. If you take things too seriously, you just might get the Red Sea Blues.

Red Sea Chronicles Trailer

If you like drum beats, and you like adventure, then have a listen to the Red Sea Chronicles Trailer.

Red Sea Chronicles Episode 1 - When Flying Fish Attack

Flying fish assault Exit Only in the middle of the night as we sail through the Arabian Gulf from the Maldives to Oman. And so begins our Red Sea adventures.

Red Sea Chronicles Episode 2 - Pirate Alley

Sailing through Pirate Alley between Yemen and Somalia involves calculated risk. It may not be Russian Roulette, but it is a bit of a worry. Follow Team Maxing Out as they navigate through Pirate Alley.

Red Sea Chronicles Episode 3 - Aden, Yemen

Stopping in Yemen was just what the doctor ordered. We refueled, repaired our alternator, and we made friends with our gracious Yemeni hosts. We also went to Baskins Robbins as a reward for surviving Pirate Alley.

Red Sea Chronicles Episode 4- Gate of Sorrows and Sandstorms

After you survive Pirate Alley, you must sail through the Gate of Sorrows (Bab Al Mandab) at the southern entrance to the Red Sea. The Gate of Sorrows lived up to its name with fifty knots of wind and a sandstorm that pummeled Exit Only for two days. Life is good.

Save A Tree Bookstore

Although I like the feel of a paper book in my hand, I love trees even more. When people purchase an eBook, they actually save trees and save money as well. Ebooks are less expensive and have no negative impact on the environment. All of Dr. Dave's books are available at Save A Tree Bookstore. Visit the bookstore today and start putting good things into your mind. It's easy to fill your mind with positive things using eBooks. No matter where you are or what you are doing, you can pull out your smart phone or tablet and start reading. You can even use electronic highlighters and make annotations in your eBooks just like paper books.
