    ...what kewl things have you done in your life that you'll remember forever? What do you wanna do that you haven't done yet?

    I've played guitar in bands in front of audiences a few times. I wanna do that more. Much more.

    I've rappelled and rock climbed a little bit. The first step over the edge, stepping into space and trusting the rope was AMAZING!!!

    I scuba dive every chance I get.

    I've driven over 120 mph on the highway (don't do this at home, kids! Or anywhere else...)

    I've seen Niagara Falls.


    I wanna sky dive.

    I wanna run a 10k

    I wanna see the Grand Canyon

    I wanna write a book and/or a column

    I wanna RV across the US, counter clockwise up through the north then west, down California and across the south and then a pass through the Midwest for good measure. Hitting bbq festivals, state fairs, regional events, etc, all the way. I wanna go to the middle of nowhere, like Western Nebraska or something and have breakfast with some folks in a tiny little town.

    If my wife and I ever get around to actually divorcing, one I wanna fuck this one friend of hers who, the two of us, have had the hots for each other since we first met. I saw her at wifeys house a few weeks ago and she rubbed my neck for a while and I had to wait a few minutes before I could get up my dick got so hard. Then she gave me the look. Bytch! :lol

    Actually I wanna do her and my wife at the same time. Wifey's not into it. :mad

    I dunno - I guess I am pretty dull. Yeah - like some of you, I have fallen in love (more than once).
    I have seen UFO's not only with my own eyes but also tracked them on radar.
    I have been inside a B-52.
    I have fired a military missle (see my avatar)
    I have been a well known radio personality
    I took music lessons from someone on network TV
    I raised two wonderful children
    I have had more superb real and cyber friendships than I can remember.

    I have no idea what else I'd like to do except obviously be able to retire without
    financial worries and not be a burden to my kids.

    Ok, so lets plan it. I would have to quit my job though! I will look for federal funds to do it. I just bet that we could look for some endangered species that would get us enough cash to not work, and buy some new gear! ;) Hell, it's our money anyway! Wouldn't that be a great time? Anybody else up for it!?

    I'm totally down for that, and I'm serious. Some summer, or some semester I could take off from school and we could totally do it. I bet I could get a sponsorship from the college, and maybe even a couple of credits. Some friends were going to go, but decided they didn't have enough time during the summer. Well, I was disappointed because I really wanted to go. It would be a great time!!
