Finish this sentence "Before I die I want to ________ "

Read this story on Yahoo, http://news.yahoo.com/public-art-pro...070335649.html
So I thought we could do the same thing on Foo.

Before I die I want to bicycle across the United States.

want to see attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion and watch C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.

^Hard to believe that movie did so-so at the box office. Now it's considered right up there with the absolute best of the genre.

I read an article called 50 Things To Do Before I Die back in the late 1990s, and I made my list of 50 Things ...

I accomplished many of those things over the years, and after travelling around the world for 8 months last year (one of the things on the original list ), I re-did the list ... and now I've got about 80 Things on my list.


A few examples mentioned on a recent thread ...
http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...he-bucket-list

I've just got to decide what to do first!

Ride my bikes on a Grand Tour of Europe, including L'Etape de Tour.

After I am done with that, come home and grow old peacefully and happily while watching my family grow and prosper.
