I got most of my list done before breaking my back. Flying antique planes (still got to fly a DC-3), Skydiving (My favorite), Bear hunting (love that too & will continue), Scuba diving, 160 mph on a M/C, 5000 miles in 1 season on a mountain bike, Morocross & many more. Point being do them now & everyone can afford to skydive once. I was a freefall junky at least twice a week. Now I start my new list. Land speed record on a mobility scooter 125 mph+ & the list goes on. Work hard, Play hard & my life has no rearwiew mirror. Plan for the Future but Live for the Moment & be Thankful everyday! Sorry for the rant.

All mine are hunting destinations:
1. Hunt cape buffalo in Africa,, most likely just too expensive.
2. Caribou in Quebec.
3. Moose hunt in Alaska.
2 an 3 are far more attainable, but I still remember the writer's words on the cape buffalo " They look at you like you owe them money" The stories from Rourke, O'Conner, Aagard and so many others, always filled my head with dreams of Africa.

Now to do them before I run out of birthdays.
A very worthwhile list, Yellowstone and Old Faithful are wonderful. I've seen many Humpbacks breach, Maui in late summer and winter is guaranteed viewing. I was a Merchant Marine years ago. We were steaming up the the Hudson once with the sun rising at about 6AM in a 700' Freighter, the Statue of Liberty to our Port, Manhattan and the Twin Towers to our Starboard. At that moment, a Humpback breached dead ahead of us and came completely out of the water, about 20 yds away. Rare to see them in the Hudson and to launch like that (tail and all) is even more rare. An image I'll never forget.

.....And the Grand Canyon is incredible, go to the North Rim (as opposed to the South Rim), more spectacular, less people, lot's of hiking trails, easy drive from Las Vegas and as a bonus you can see Zion National Park a short drive away. At the North Rim consider staying in the cabins this lodge provides. The Lodge is parked on the edge of the canyon.

Oh I forgot a big one on the list, kill a Griz with my 450Marlin BFG revolver. I'm sure I forgot a couple more.

Have him show you how to work on your GP100- maybe order this spring kit and have him show you how to install it- http://www.brownells.com/handgun-parts/trigger-group-parts/performance-enhancing-kits/rgp-103-pro-spring-kit-for-ruger-gp-100-prod26249.aspx

Also have him show you how to work on your guns so you don't lose parts. A lot of that is in the technique you use.

I've topped out my Cadillac at 140 & my bike around at 130, not too sure how fast my Charger will go but it'll probably a little over 140 mph. I did 160 on a friends ZX-6R about 10 years back but that's still a long ways from my goal
