My bucket list

So when I wrote my resolutions/goals for the year it got me thinking about my own personal "bucket list". For those of you who haven't seen the recent movie "The Bucket List" or don't know what it is, it's a list of things you'd like to do before you 'kick the bucket'. It took me two months to really think about this and I'm sure there will be more things added as time goes by, but this is the list as of right now. There are some adventurous and athletic things. Some are spiritual. Some monetary/worldly. Some personal. I just thought I'd share some of my thoughts/dreams/aspirations with everyone. Like I've said before, if I put it out there then there is some accountability on myself to achieve these things.

I wish you would learn to play the guitar or mandolin, I need some help at the once in a lifetime performance, I make for the Prices.
I lost your e-mail, you need to talk to Billy about New York, he lived there when in school.
