Did Oktoberfest - twice
Driven our Volvo >150 on the Autostrada home from work
Sailed the Mediterranean

Visited the Caribbean

I guess I'd like to earn my pilot's license.

jonewer: stlbluez: Thre are obvious ones... for everyone I guess.

Some specific less sensational ones would be to:

Drive around Ireland / Scotland for a week or two... In a convertible.

Rent a sailboat in the Carribean.

Also... own / fly an ultralight. Given the CHOICE between pilot lessons and flying sessnas, etc.. I'd probably still choose the ultralight.

If you drive around scotland and Ireland in a convertible, you can do your SCUBA certificate at the same time.


nice :)
Obviously I'd be hoping for sunshine :)

1. Learn to surf properly. Done it before just not as well as I liked.

2. Learn to play piano and maybe guitar.

3. Learn karate. Took as a kid but quit.

4. Learn Spanish

5. Get laid. LOLVIRGIN. Just being honest. I'm almost 30 dammit.

Realistic? Nothing. I cannot think of a single thing I actually want out of life that I could possibly have.

It terrifies and depresses me.

I wish I went to school to become a teacher rather than getting a bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems and working in IT.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my job and make decent money. But I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and now it is financially unreasonable to do so and if I did that would mean I couldn't have more kids right now, which I also want to do (and is a priority for me).

If I went to school to become a teacher in the first place, I wouldn't have this problem, I probably would have much less in student loans, and I'd be making about the same amount of money as I do now.

Make a documentary of a road near me, then make a horror film I'm writing. I love movies and I'm young, so I just want to try my hand at it just to see if I can make something compelling that I can be proud of.

After finding out this was real (well at least the outside, I'm sure there's not three devices of such lethal cunning inside) that I'd love to visit it, but the Middle East isn't always the best place to be an American tourist (granted Jordan isn't as bad as some plus Petra is on the other side of the country from Syria)

Go do it.

You've already got a Bachelor's, so just take whatever classes you need to get Educator Certified.

If it's something you really want out of life, you'll regret not doing it when you're old and feeling that your life was only half-lived.

I was just there last month. Petra is awesome, an appropriate level of awe-inspiring. Takes about a full day to wander around the whole city. You can't go inside the Treasury, but you can go into most of the other buildings. My buddy and I spent a day in Petra, drove up to a resort by the Dead Sea and spent a day hanging out there, and then went north of Amman to check out the remarkably well preserved Greco-Roman ruins in Jerash. The people are friendly, nothing felt the least bit unsafe or sketchy even when we were near the Syrian border. Definitely worth doing.

Get a teaching license and find a job as a computer or tech teacher. Combine what you do and what you love. My high school tried a pilot program to teach CCNA and tech skills back in 2001. It was well-intentioned but a failure because anyone qualified to teach that stuff could make better money doing it than teaching it. If you're into it out of an honest desire to be there, I'm sure you can find a place.

How about the PunchLine? Take the comedian course and the final is you and your classmates performing your jokes live. Scary as hell and difficult, but really worth the effort.

Build this app for autistic kids that has been rattling around in my brain for the last six months (involves me learning HOW to build apps...a big switch from developing web sites, imo)

Lose a BIG chunk of this extra weight I'm carrying around so I can take my kids and husband horseback riding (none of them have ever been)

Visit Ireland and Scotland

Visit Gretna Green (ties in w/ Scotland visit)

Visit Canada (land of my husband's people)

tkwasny: DreamyAltarBoy: Break 150mph.
Difficulty rating: I own a Yaris

Off a cliff will have that workin' for ya. Only once and for a few seconds though.


Not even then. The terminal velocity of a blunt object in free fall, like a car, is about 120 mph. Sorry Dreamy.

OTOH, doing 150 mph in a real race car with your butt 2" off the ground is both intoxicatingly exhilarating, as well as realistically doable. I haven't been that fast myself, but my son hit 152 in one of my cars at Road America a few years ago, so I know it's possible.

Altrissa: Get my pilot's license and buy a small plane.

Go do it. Not sure what it costs in Canada, but in the US you can get a full-on SEL Private Ticket for around $6k and a "Light Sport" ticket for $3-$4k.

And a plane.. sheeit... a Cessna 150 or Piper Tomahawk can be had for under $15k all day long. When you're done with it, sell it and recoup most of what you put in to it.

Money problems? Start a fund specifically for your pilot training and get a Flight Simulator to screw around with and keep you interested.

Bonus: Even Microsoft's Flight Simulator can help you actually learn the instruments and give you a head start when you start taking lessons.

That's what I did... 1st Solo at 6 hours, SEL Private License at 41 hours.

Flying over the San Jacinto Monument / Battleship Texas. The VFR Corridor (along I-10, just North of Downtown) in Houston is an awesome trip.

-Get married
-Start a family (hoping the first one is a red headed girl, need to keep a promise)
-Travel with said family, giving my kids a well traveled childhood
-Grow old watching my kids grow up along side my wife
-See my grand kids being born.

Short, short version: Visit all 50 states (I'm at 33 right now), all six inhabited continents (with multiple stuff in all), take a Caribbean cruise and major road trip (possibly the I-90 trip or find the most direct route to St. Louis and then head down 66).

Have I mentioned I love travel?

Go do it.

Break your list down in to individual journeys, and start working on one at a time... except for the "Visit all 50 States" thing... that is better done by visiting multiples on one trip.

I suppose everyone should take at least one "cruise" in their lifetime... but I just want to warn you that it's never what you expect - unless you expect a floating prison of lardos who waddle around all day stuffing their faces with cheeseburgers and hot dogs... stinking the joint up.

Go do it. Rent a car with unlimited mileage and go for it. It's really not hard.

Money tight? Rent a minivan with unlimited mileage. My wife and I did this for a 14-day, 6,000 mile road trip (one of many road trips). Slept in the minivan at National/State Parks, or stayed at hotels when we felt like it.

adillman: Would like to skydive and bungee jump


Go do it. Bungee jumping can cost as low as like $40. Skydiving, maybe $200 (seen it for $99 on special a few times).

If bungee jumping doesn't burn you out on free falling, then move up to sky diving.

This is one of the easiest things to accomplish as it doesn't take ungodly amounts of money.

austin_millbarge: gamergirl23: Learn to surf. See Niagara falls. Lots of stuff, really.

My girlfriend is from the greater Niagra Falls area (no seriously) and I've visited there several times when we go back to visit family.

Be sure to take the Cave of the Winds tour on the American side. There's nothing more breathtaking than LITERALLY standing at the base of the falls and having the thundering water cascading down around you. It's the best 10$ you'll spend all day. Better than Maid of the Mist I think.


Seeing them is Nice...I lived and worked in N.F., NY for several years...Its worth the site more than once...However, if you are visiting stateside, DO NOT wander too far away from the Falls...or you may never be seen again. City is full of gangsta wannabe trash!

Lord Snoopy's G.P.E.H.: Low Earth Orbit.


I remember in the late 90's almost biting on one of those Russian MiG flights in Moscow that takes you to like 75,000 feet. It was like $10k and I had the bucks for it. When I called, they said the price was like $15k now (don't know what it costs nowadays). Anyhow, didn't have $15k and a 50% rise in cost kinda put me off considering they advertised it at $10k.

Something that you may want to consider. Plus, you get to actually fly the thing once you're up there.
 
2012-10-10 09:12:43 AM
drive a race car. not really picky what kind,e ither...F1, Indy, NASCAR, whatever. Just want to experience 200mph one time. that is all.
