Doesn't quite fit in the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms portion but I couldn't make a new topic under Lifestyles so here it is.

Who's got some good bucket list material?

I'm a little bit of an adventure junkie. Not so much the adrenalin pumping type but rather the Hemingway turn of the century type. For example I think the next big adventure I'm working toward is either doing a transatlantic crossing or a dude ranch style African safari hunt. If you're a peta type don't even start because I love animals. They're delicious. Seriously though I'm only in the money saving stage either way.

Anyone else out there keep a bucket list as an adult?

I have a bucket list. I've already managed to check a couple of them off. I have a few more.

I want to tour Europe on a distillery/automobile tour. Hit Germany, Ireland, France, Italy, England, Scotland.

I also want to do a Trans-Atlantic cruise, paired with a Mediterranean cruise.

A bit closer to home I want to go skydiving.

I have already managed to around a couple race tracks driving. I have been certified as a 200+ driver. I've been to Alaska (twice actually.)

200mph jesus... I went 150mph on the autobahn and I think I left grip marks in the steering wheel from holding on so tight.

It was a closed track, we went first at 100, then the next day was 150, and 175, then the third day was 200. It was RIDICULOUS! However I will say this after DOING 200, slowing down to 150 feels like you're going in reverse.

I live pretty close to Atlanta motor speedway and every once in a while they advertise some ride alongs in a stock car. Maybe I'll give that a shot. Must get the blood pumping.

DEFINITELY do it! One of my buddies did a ride-along and then they let him drive the second half of the day. He only got up to 125 around the Gateway Track in St. Louis. He said it was still a rush!

The only thing on my Bucket list is to retire and not work anymore.
