Goals to complete before death

I've been thinking. I do alot of that when I can't sleep.

I want to set myself some goals for things to do before I die. So far I have:

New Zealand Ironman - 3.8km cold lake swim, 180km cycle, 42km marathon.
RAAM Race Across America
Paris-Brest-Paris
Tour every continent.

I might do other Ironmans if my first one goes OK. I am also on the lookout for other challenges.
anyone else?

Brendon

Publish 20 amazing books of photographs
Work as DP on no less than 10 mind blowing films
Own a Pinarello Montello and ride it to work
Get one of the the Olson twins and Estella Warren in a menage trois
Deny said affair to the press
Inspire the youth
Make the old wish they were young

And after I die? Someone amazing will write the then musical equivalent to Nico's Eulogy to Lenny Bruce

Move to Europe and spend ridiculous amounts of time touring the Alps.

Return to the infamous Gordon River Road in Tasmania with a new chain just to make a statement.

New Zealand's South Island seems interesting, too.

Visit Australia and New Zealand. Take my bike to Germany and ride from Dresden to Luebeck and see all the places where Johann Sebasian Bach lived and worked. Perform in a major symphony orchestra at least once. Go to Scotland. Take the Tran-Canada Rail from one coast to the other.

You're right...one would have to ignore the fact that they were sisters.

Ahem...as we were saying...goals:
I still need to ride a century.
Potentials are parachuting and hang gliding.

1. Find a job that I ENJOY, which allows a comfortable lifestyle (I'm not looking for a huge house and a summer cottage, just to live comfortable within my means).
2. Spend more time with my wife (on and off the bike)
3. Go camping at least twice a month all year round.
4. Even though I'm not ready right now, down the road, I would love the opportunity to raise a child.
5. Never buy an animal when there are so many great dogs who need to be rescued.
6. To give people more than they ask for, while expecting very little in return.
7. Never miss an opportunity to make a friend over a pint.

I think #1 is the only Unicorn of the bunch.

Oi Vey! Things to do before I die. Let's see.
1) Become immortal.
2) lose 30 lbs and 8 inches.
3) Run the Bare to Breakers...oh...er... uh...I meant the Bay to Breakers
4) Find a husband who enjoys riding, hiking and living uh dare I say it, naked.
5) Stay for a month in Almeria, Spain every year
5) Then another month in Cap-d-agde, France.
6) Win the lotto so I can afford to do all of these things. Hey I won $104 last week! It can be done!
7) Find the cure for the common cold, then I don't have to win the lotto!
