Things to do

I'm am officially putting down my "Things to do before I die" list. Not that I am being morbid, but inspired but seeing this book. My list isn't that long, I'll stop with 20

1. Run a car with veggie oil
2. See the Grand Canyon
3. Bike around Ireland
4. Get the PhD
5. Win the lottery
6. Take an expedition boat to the Galapagos Islands
7. See the big 5 of Denali
8. Go on a whale watching boat that actually sees a whale
9. Win an award for my photography
10. Bike the whole C&O Canal towpath
11. Ski in Colorado (preferably, before my knee goes out)
12. Visit all 50 states*
13. Cruise the Panama Canal
14. Hike the Inca Trail
15. Finish the home improvements on my house
16. Live in a single family home on a lot big enough to have a veggie garden
17. Keep Kyle around to tend said veggie garden ;-)
18. Have a lake house with a dock and a boat or two
19. Retire very early
20. Catch a largemouth bass and a muskie from Burke Lake

Clearly, many things depend on #5.

That, and clearly I need to get in shape. I'm far too overweight and lazy to be as outdoorsy as I want to be.

* I'm well on my way

Hope, Some people came into my dive shop on Sunday to buy some snorkelling gear. They were headed off to the Galapagos. They decided that this year Thanksgiving would be spent in the Galapagos. They weren't particularly outdoorsy looking, mind you.

Set a date! Go for it!
