What is on your Bucket List?Things to do before you die...

Posted on 02/09/2011 4:03:39 PM PST by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!

I know of three people I know well that have died or will soon die of cancer.

This put my faith and my bucket list in mind.

I have many places I want to visit before I die but if I am like my friends and I get a 1 year to live acclaim I can see by them....I won't be healthy to enjoy...

An Alaskan Cruise...Inspired by visiting the CPAC page and watching Palin's show.

So I looked into Alaskan Cruises

What is your bucket list anybody ever been on an Alaskan cruise? leave Vancouver or Seattle?

Thanks I thought customs would be a pain in Vancouver. Are passports still needed to leave out of Seattle? I think so.. as it is a BC registered ship right? :(

My understanding is that you need a passport to leave the country or that will be the requirement soon. The cruise company will have the latest info on that.

Nah. Already peed on 3 states at one time. Peed in Nebraska, Wyoming, and Colorado. I have not made it to 4-corners yet, and probably won’t be able to pee there. Too many people around. But thanks for thinking of me.

I’m going to give away half my net worth to somebody. (maybe set them up in their business)
I want to pay for someone to go to college.
I want to set up a scholarship for a Phi Mu - Business Student. (my sister was one of those, she passed away, so this would be for her)
I want to give someone a house some day so they don’t have to grind for shelter.

Get my kicks on RT.66.

Since I have lived close to RT. 66 for the last 50 years I have a bit of advice. There are several guide books on how to travel the route. A lot of it does not exist anymore and so to really experience it you need to get a book.

A lot of people do not know the history of the route. It is fascinating. I recommend reading about the history as it also is a history of automobile travel in the US back in the 20's and 30's.

Another good book about a lot of the country it goes through, i.e., New Mexico, Arizona, and California is "A Tramp Across the Continent" by Charles F. Loomis. Fascinating travelogue and a fascinating character.

Have fun, time is short.

I bought 40 acres in Alaska last year. Very remote, a 100' bluff overlooking red creek with a wide open view of Mt. McKinley. The only way in is by plane to a lake which sits bordering the south side of the property (or smowmachine most of the year). It is heavily wooded with spruce, birch, pine and some hardwoods.

I hope to build a cabin out of the trees on the property and retire there. The view is breathtaking and waking to it every morning would leave me wanting for nothing.

At the intersection of the 3 states there is a survey marker. Nebraska’s is sandstone, Colorado’s is granite, and Wyoming’s is shale I believe. You gotta be fast.

LOL I would need to bum a flight from Palin to get there and if I would it would be because of WMD’a that Obama caused. But thanks and I wish you well. You can buy log canin kits online and cheat if time gets by you.

I only live about 90 minutes from Plains. Tapping the keg on Carter's grave is Numero Uno on my list. I just hope the old fool has the decency to kick it before I move back to the mountains and it turns into a road trip.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

The Holy Land is at the top of my bucket list...

But I look at this as a win-win situation. If I don’t get to it in this life, I’ll make it in the next.

Never done the Alaska trip, but hoping to. Also like to do Yosemite and Mesa Verde. I’m addicted to western National Parks. I’ll take them any day over a European vacation.

I’m an impoverished academician.

Been to Vancouver BC twice in August.
NOT one drop of rain.
Simply awesome.
I tell my Canadian cousins (from Edmonton AB area) that the USA made
A SERIOUS MISTAKE when our forbearers didn’t take Vancouver.

I like Seattle, but for scenic beauty, it might have been a good deal
to give Seattle to Canada in order to take Vancouver.
Just my naive thought! LOL!!!
Especially if we got Victoria Island.

One of my good pals, and this is a true story, got so peed off, that he raised his ancestors graves in his home country, moved to Switzerland, and is now changing his name. Impressive! It’s something I’d like to do as well.

“..lot of pee fantasies here...”

Ponygirl, it ain’t just dogs and cats (I can’t remember-—horses don’t do it, do they?) who are all about marking territory.

A publisher I used to work for in North Dakota denoted the division between the eastern part of the state (flat or rolling farmland) and the west (badlands, buttes, more trees and lots of buckbrush) as The Part You Can Get Out Of Your Car and Take a Leak In Without Being Seen and The Part Where You Can’t.

After growing up in that state and spending many years in town residence I now have small rural parcels in both Montana and Idaho where, as my elderly Idaho neighbor puts it, “It’s nice to be able to take a good p-— outside!”

Yes, yes, in so many ways our (male) lives are thus shaped.
