Day Zero Project

For those of you who don't know, the Day Zero Project is a list of 101 tasks you want to achieve over a period of 1001 days. The beauty of it is that there is a strict deadline which equals about 2.75 years, this means that it's less open ended than a "bucket list". Also, the tasks or goals must be completely unambiguous, meaning once you've achieved it, it's done, there's no "grey area". So here goes, my 101 things are:
1. Hike the West Coast Trail
