Been working on mine a long time, just about complete. You have some good ones on there.

Mine includes visiting Germany (and especially what used to be East Germany, around the Fulda Gap) South America used to be on the list, but is on hold until politics settle. See the evening changing of the guard at Tower of London. Fly an ultra-lite.

Body now makes crunchy noises a lot, so probably will rethink the "surf the 50 ft waves, North Shore Hawaii during winter storm", maybe modify to "Sit on beach at North Shore with Pina Colada during winter storm, watch idiots try to surf 50 ft waves".

I gave up surfing when I was 19 (1969) so sitting on the beach "watching" sounds like an excellent idea (although I'd have a Jack and Coke or a single malt scotch, neat, in my hand).

As for the list:
Visit Australia and take a 'walk about.'
Visit ALL of Germany. Couldn't go to East Germany while in the Army. Had a confidential clearance and couldn't visit any places behind the Iron Curtain.
Listen, LIVE, to an Obozo speech on the economy and yell "YOU LIE!" sometime during it (assuming I don't puke while listening to him spewing the bulls**t).

My bucket's been kicked. Only I'm too stubborn to acknowledge it.

PanBaccha said what I was thinking. And he expressed it better.

There are buckets...

And then there are buckets...


I'll go for quality experience in most things and call it good.

Tour Europe, probably needs to happen soon before it gets too dangerous there. Take part in a 3 gun shoot, I'm afraid it will be addictive. See whales in Alaska with my wife, one of her top to-do things.

Wow. I just realized I don't have a bucket list. But my life has been pretty amazing anyway. And I'm only 44. I have an awesome woman, a wonderful son and an awesome job. I have travelled most of the U.S. in an RV. Have not been to Europe. But not really bothered about it. I have seen the sun rise on the Atlantic and set on the Pacific.

The only thing I can think of I will probably never be able to afford. I would like to go to Africa or somewhere like that to hunt something really dangerous.

I'm still pretty young, but I do have a few things on the ever growning list.

Hunt in Alaska (for several weeks)
Visit Ireland
Own 100 guns (at the same time. That will take a while)

Those are the big three things I want to do.

I would indulge in this discussion if my bucket list would not get me "Hammered".
