Wow, we have a couple in common. I have to admit I was so exited to put my answers I skipped to the end and posted, but you have already experienced so much of what I would love to do. About the only thing close on my list at the moment is that my wifes aunt and uncle own 11,000 acres of land in winifred,mt and said that I can come up and dig whenever I want, the joke is -who has the time and money. I will have to wait until next summer to go up, but there are currently a couple universities up there and several archeologists have said that the land is teeming with fossil records, course - most of Montana is. Keep living the life, for all of those in waiting and expecially for those to never get the opportunity. Later.

8. To swim with dolphins.

It's funny when I read these posts how many have mentioned swimming with Dolphins. I have had that opportunity on numerous occasions as a PADI Scuba Instructor and lover of the ocean's creatures, reefs and ecosystems. The absolute joy and serenity of being with intelligent Dolphins was such a highlight in my undersea journey and chapter of my life. The most exhilarating was diving with a school of Hammerhead Sharks off the Mexican Peninsula.

That would have been a wonderful experience. Scuba diving is something I'm fascinated by, though never quite had the courage. One of my first non-fiction reads when I was young, around 11, was a book on dolphins and the research being conducted. I think it was called, "Dolphins, Cousin To Man", or similar. The work being conducted by psychologists with language was fascinating. Without vocal cords, the dolphin was teasing the female researcher. He had been splashing her, and she kept saying, "Stop it, (elvin?), stop it." Later, the tape got put on high speed for some reason or another, and what hadn't been picked up, came in clear as a bell, repeating the same. I've been fascinated ever since. Dolphins are beautiful. I remembered reading one mans account who later started an environmentally aware business, who had spent time on a commercial fishing boat. The baby dolphins were caught in the net. After some time, he couldn't take it any more, and slipped off the boat, cutting holes in the nets and freeing the dolphins. He didn't last long as a fisherman!

Not a book reader..... but Day Of The Dolphin struck a nerve with me years ago about the potential abuse of Dolphins by the military.

Digging in Montana...that would be great. It's hard to find time to follow passions and not everybody understands
I live in an old farmhouse that dates back to 1849. I have found all sorts of things while digging in the garden/yard. It typically starts with me looking to just "turn over some soil" and then I find a piece of old farm equipment and next thing you know I am digging out a square three foot deep hole ...last week I found stirrups, buttons, an old harmonica, a gun barrell and then my wife comes out and gives me that look that says...."what the heck are you doing, we have guests comming over in 15 minutes and you are out here for an hour digging holes in the yard!" I have to wait till she is out of town to break out the metal detector and then I try to pad the sod back in place over all the holes I dig in the yard before she gets home!

I am a wannabe archeologist.

Well, I don't usually like entertaining prospects of kicking the bucket, but I have to say this thread is great and has inspired people to define and affirm the goals important to them. Kudos to Dave!

I love the posts so far. There are some really good ideas that I will be sharing in this post. I'd also like to remind everyone to actively pursue their lists and put plans into action. Waste not a day! I hope that you all achieve your goals in good time.

I've been fortunate to cross off the list 2 or 3 things already. They are finding mutually true love, and finding truth to some meaningful matters.

My List

Straight, Single
Christian (non-affiliation)

1. Explore in depth Europe, Russia, and America. I would also like to visit Greenland, Hong Kong, and see the temples at Java Indonesia.

2. Complete my script and accompanying book. Do my hardest to get it considered for film production or as a last resort finance an independent project.

3. Actually write and create some decent music, at the least one album.

4. Try to make sure I touch all lives positively. Always leave a wake I can be proud of.

5. Indulgent one: Walk on the moon!

And I'm sure many more, but those are the ones that stick out in my mind currently.
