My “Bucket-List”


Now, the thing is… I think everyone should have a ‘bucket-list’, and actively work on it. I actually began making mine BEFORE the movie came out. I used to have things on it like: “Star in a major motion picture” / “Climb Mount Everest” / “Go see Paris (Hilton)” / important things like that. But, I’ve revised it over the years, hopefully into more reasonable pursuits. Here are some of them, subject to occasional clearer thought, and spousal input. (By the way, do you “Get” this picture?)

1. – Ride around the perimeter of America on a motorcycle
2. – Attend an “Indianapolis-500” car race
3. – Go for a hot-air baloon ride
4. – Take a ride in a sail-plane
5. – Climb Mt. Whitney (highest mountain in continental United States)
6. – Walk all (or part) of the Appalachian Trail
7. – Skydive (without the aid of a tandem-instructor)
8. – Bungee-jump (again)
9. – Fly an ‘ultra-lite’ airplane
