To Do

571. Visit another planet

Updated August 1, 2009 Maybe I read too many books about grand adventures as a child, but I really would jump at the chance to visit another planet. I know we’re not likely to find another one quite as nice as our Earth, but maybe that would make me just appreciate my own home all […]

518. Orbit the Earth

This one is out there, but with stories of moon tourism popping up, who knows? It could happen.

502. See a full solar eclipse

Updated February 13, 2010 Well, I guess you can’t actually ‘see’ a full eclipse unless you fancy it being the last thing you ever see, but I’d like to witness a full solar eclipse. I’ve seen a full lunar eclipse and nearly 30 years later, the experience is still with me. It was one of […]

499. Fly in the Goodyear blimp

Updated April 30, 2009 According to the Goodyear Blimp web site, the only way to get on board is to be invited by the company or win some sort of charity auction. I wonder what you’d have to do to get Goodyear to invite you…buy a lot of tires?

478. Take a helicopter to the top of a mountain and hike back down again

It might be cheating, but I think it would be fun.

467. Be a flight attendant

The story of how I attempted to be a flight attendant for American Eagle Airlines.

462. Take a flying lesson

Updated December 1, 2009 I’m not afraid of flying, really. I get a bit nervous on particularly bumpy flights or if the weather is bad, but it’s nothing I can’t deal with, and I’ve certainly been more nervous going on dates or job interviews. So I’m just excited about the idea of taking a flying […]

379. Skydive

Updated June 13, 2010 Oh, yes. I will do it. You might think it’s crazy, but I will go and do it anyway. You have to have lots of training and it’s not cheap, but you can do a shorter training and jump tandem, strapped to a professor who can handle any emergencies that come […]

302. Fly upside-down

Updated April 13, 2009 I have to find someone with one of those amazing little planes that can do tricks like flying upside down and get the pilot to give me a ride.

221. Bathe in the light of the full moon

Updated July 13, 2009 In celebration of joy, of love, of nature, of the moon herself, of beauty. There is definitely magic in the light of the moon – and the light of the full moon is only stronger and more magical.
