my los angeles elusive 10

…or Things That I Want to Do Before I Leave and Have Never Done Before.

I’ve lived in LA for about 13 years now.  I’ve done and seen a lot.  Here are the top 10 that I have not yet experienced:

6. Salvation Mountain (possibly October 9, 2010).

7. Hike to the Hollywood Sign (Did it before but didn’t quite make the tip tip top.  Too hot.  Got sick.  Possibly October 16, 2010).

8. Star Maps and/or double-decker bus tour of L.A (possibly October 16, 2010).

9. Derby Dolls roller derby (accomplished September 11, 2010)

10. Self-Realization Center (possibly October 16, 2010).

Unfortunately, First Fridays at the Natural History Museum, which would be on the list, is not going to happen.  The season is over.  La Brea Tar Pits may be added.

Up next, old stomping grounds that need a revisit before I leave.
