Bucket List 11/2014

Another update to the bucket list (two years since the last).

By the way, I have already checked off a bunch of them including: falling in love (a bonus - marrying my high school sweetheart); having a great family; starting a non-profit; visiting Italy, France, England; Playing golf at Pebble Beach; etc.

And since the last update, did a few more.  Visited the Grand Canyon and Zion.  Drove a race car at Laguna Seca.  Visited the Alps.  And drove on the autoban, but in a rented car...

These are the ones that are left - with a few new ones added in blue.

  • Visit the great US National Parks (Yellowstone, Crater Lake, Grand Teton, Lassen Volcano, etc.)
  • Parachute
  • Complete the swim from Alcatraz (escape from Alcatraz ...)
  • Tour Japan
  • Oktoberfest in Munich
  • Golf enough to get my index under 10 (been there before :()
  • Meet someone really famous that I respect (Oprah, the President, Warren Buffet, ...)
  • Get involved in local, regional or state politics
  • Get a patent
  • Spend New Year's in an exotic location
  • Buy a car in Europe, drive it there (including the Autoban) and have it shipped home
  • Leave a lasting youth related legacy
  • Go up in a hot-air balloon
  • Hikes (Rim to Rim, Sea to Skyline, etc.)
