    What are some things everyone should do at least once in a lifetime?

    Some of them for me are:

    1. Jump out of an airplane
    2. Fall in love
    3. Run until your legs are rubber
    4. See a foreign country
    5. Climb a mountain
    6. Hear a newborn's cry

    What's your list?

    Climb a mountain? And hearing a newborn cry is highly overrated.

    Yes, climb a mountain. I have climbed several. And I've heard a newborn cry. Once is enough for the newborn crying thing. But I can never climb enough mountains! So where's your list, missy?

    On the other end of a newborn's cry, this may sound bizarre, but it is very meaningful to be with a person at the moment of death.

    All the bolded have done. Others on my list that I've done:

    1. Travelled through Europe with no reservations using the Eurail pass.
    2. Walked by a cape buffalo in Tanzania---only way to get to the food (it had been a long trip and wasn't going to let a wild animal get in the way of the dinner pavilion).
    3. Walk through bear country on Vancouver Island

    What I want to do is travel again to the West. Need more adventures, rather than remembering past trips.

    Sadly it is. Had that experience with my mom. The other family was talking to the minister; I saw the moment when it was all over.Very profound.

    1. go marlin fishing
    2. coastal tour of Italy
    3. fly-in to a remote camp in canada to fish and hunt
    4. test drive a new Lamborghini
    5. visit the space station

    The only one probable is the Marlin trip.

    I would add:

    Kill a Commie.

    Have sex with an alligator.

    Get the Clap.

    Screw a horny Australian girl.

    Get stranded on an island for a three day weekend with no food.

    Be in an helicopter crash.

    Those are some things I have heard are interesting. I have not done all of them.


    I was stranded on an island for three days. When I was a teenager my cousins and I decided to go hunting on an island in the middle of a big lake. It was in November. We left after school on Friday afternoon. We expected only to be gone for a few hours. We never really told anybody where we were going. We took a small boat to the island. While we were out and about the boat drifted off and we were stranded. There was nobody around.

    That first night a cold front came through and it rained and got chilly. We were soaked, hungry and cold. We couldn't sleep. The next day nobody was on the lake because it was windy and cool. We got much hungrier. We shot a coot and tried to eat it but it tasted awful. There was a wild sour orange tree on the island but the oranges were still green. Sunday was also really miserable and it rained some more. Nobody else on the lake we could call to.

    It wasn't until Monday when we were rescued. Everybody was looking for us and someone had found our vehicle on the shore.

    I put this on my list because it was a great adventure that gave me a new perspective on things. It knocked me out of my High School mentality of rock and roll and drive in theaters. I think everybody should have an adventure in their life time because it puts your mind right.
