The List

Okay, I am sure you have all seen a list come around by email, or seen other sites where people make a list of the 100 things they want to do in their lifetime. Maybe making a list and putting it out there as a reminder will help motivate me to cross some of them off. So, here is what I have come up with for a list so far. It's not a 100 things, it's not even 20 things I have added a couple so it is up to 20 (I combined a few because they will all get done at the same time)... but it's a start. If I start crossing off a bunch of these, I'll work on adding to the list. Or maybe you can give me some more ideas to add to my list. Leave me a comment with things that are or would be on your list.

Some of these are huge, some should be easy.
Things to do before I go...

I would also like to drive cross country and enjoy it this time. I'm trying to talk Steve-O into renting an RV and driving out west for our next vacation. I want to see a Moose!
