Man you really know how to make an old man feel real old. In the past 70 years I have done almost all of those things except build a sail boat (have been sailing for 40 years) white water rafting is too tame after doing it year after year after year, and skydiving is just not in my DNA. (Why jump out of a perfectly good airplane? Have flown them tho). Four children and four grandchildren, four wives for that matter, last one 29 years married, been shooting for 54 years and have all the guns I need.

And no you can not have Megan Fox's phone number.

While there are a ton of things that I want to do before I go....I thank God everyday for experiencing the things that I have already gotten to do. Most of that thanks revolves around my family...wife and little girl.

I was fortunate enough to do the whitewater rafting at the age of 15, I think...it was fun. I have also spent a lot of time on a mountain bike doing a lot of stupid things in my past. Now, my list mostly contains places that I want to visit.....some of which have been mentioned as I would love to visit all 50 of the states in the US. Unfortunately, I have not made it beyond the east coast yet.

The only other thing that I have put on a list lately is a zip lining trip that I hope to achieve in the next 12 months.

My son wants to live forever. I told him that forever is a damn long time to have to put up with this ****.

Still. He wants to be a scientist (in between all his other dreams), and wants to create a drink that'll give immortality. He's already decided to name it "Angel juice".

I just said, go for it.

One thing would be to go back to Germany for a visit and take a look around the area where I was stationed. That would be Dahn.

I'd like to return to my old Kaserne in southern Germany. Schloss Lichtenstein was very close by as were many other castles. The Black Forest was close, Switzerland just to the south and Austria just to the southeast. I miss the food, the bier, a certain import from Turkey or Morocco, the roads, the drivers (sorry, but we Americans don't generally drive very well, lol)

Visit the states I haven't been too. Think I've been to 28 or so, see some of Europe. Germany, Italy, Spain. I want to see Normandy, the camps from ww2, visit the Vatican City. (I'm catholic)

Spend time with my family being close and making memories. I've had a lot of fun in life, granted most being stupid and crazy stuff.

Travel is really all I hope for. Sure guns and a big house are nice, but those material possessions don't mean much compared to experiences.

I want to hunt caribou in Alaska, bear if I can. Moose as well.
