If any of you have every watched the movie "The Bucket List" you know the plot. Those of you that have not had the chance to watch this movie the main thrust of the movie was completing activities before one "Kicks the Bucket". (excellent movie :thumb:)

I have a bucket list and on that bucket list is to go White Water Rafting a Class IV. Further I wish to learn how to fly-fish. If anyone is interested in either one of these activities let me know, we can set up a time to live life.:)

What is on your bucket list? Maybe it's on someone else's Bucket List.

I can teach you how to fly fish. You may not catch anything but I can teach you ;)

No really I can teach you and the river is 5 minutes awau from the house. If you are ever interested LMK.

WW rafting is easy, just post up when and where and you may get some friends to go. Class IV is hard to find now that the flow is lower but in the spring early summer there is plenty. One of my employees has his own raft and goes out often.

Get a group and do it already!!:thumb:

If you want to step up to a class V run, Gore Canyon on the Colorado should be running soon. I used to race through there its pretty awesome. Not sure how may companies are running commercial trips though. And there may be an experience level requirement. We had some good carnage in there. wraps/flips/swimmers.

...Caribou hunt in AK. Guided trophy elk hunt. Hunt in Africa....

I was fortunate enough to do those as well as a moose hunt in Alaska. I highly recommend them.

Next up on the list is Brownie hunting in Kamchatka, Russia and Tar hunting in New Zealand.:thumb:

I want to build a 427 kit car too. At one point in time I was thinking about flying lessons, but it involved a lot of math. Model (scale) airplane? I'm not ready to die to I will leave the base-jumping for my 80's :lmao:

It's funny looking at some of the list. I do have a pilots license, I've traveled to some pretty cool places. I have the property in the mountains. The thing that would be on my list is to marry and have kids

Funny that you say that. Coming back from the airport today there was a huge double rainbow. So much so that I thought I should take a pic of it, and I'm not a picture taking kind of guy. The quality of the picture shows I'm not a picture taking kind of guy, so you'll have to take my word for it.

Kevin, I've done a fair amount of ww rafting in various parts of North America (West Virginia, Colorado, Alberta, Canada). I'll go with you if you organize a trip, if it doesn't interfere with various kid activities.

My bucket list includes:
Bicycling from coast to coast (not racing).
Doing a road trip with my Dad in his 1931 Model A Ford.
Driving to the southern tip of South America in my 80 with my wife and kids.
Scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef with my wife and kids.
Riding a train across India.
Living abroad, either soon (while the kids are young) or much later (after the kids have left home).
Learning to build furniture. Having enough land to build a shop.
Writing a novel and having it published.
Buying a Porsche, new, from the dealership.

Mine would be to drive my 80 from the arctic circle in Canada to the southern tip of South America. Preferably on off highway roads.

Kevin, I’d be up to go rafting too. I’ve done the Arkansas that runs under the Royal Gorge before. That was a lot of fun and we became friends with the guide…

Did that one when I was 17... It really was an amazing experience that I talk about like it was yesterday, only it was a "bit" more than that.

Did you go with a group or on your own?

Group of 4 of us.. just friends. Other than having kids recently it was probably the "event" that had the biggest impact on my life.

I road from New York City (left from the MoMa) over the GW bridge up through upstate NY to Niagra Falls, around Lake Erie through Canada, across MI,WI,SD,WY,MT,ID,WA into Seattle. Epic pictures, lots of stories.

I dream of the day that my kids might want to do the same

As long as I'm not in debt, homeless, insane/senile, or in pain when I kick the bucket, then all will be good. :hill:

Those are some awesome goals Martin . . . but you won't be on your death bed going, "I wish I would have . . ."?
