1. Sounds like fun. Try boating the Florida Key's and the Bahamas. You get to stay safe and within range.
2. Thought it was protected? And it's a long way from the mainland of Australia.
3. You can see these from New Jersey on a clean night.
4. X2
5. No doubt. Coulda taken a ride in a P51 Mustand for $1,500 but didn't have cash.

Did the Alaska cruise thing, may want to rethink that... It sucked.

Working on my top 5, but one is to surf. Just booked 8 nights on baja.

When I watch a video clip like this one I know what I would like the most I could not put into any bucket....so I don't have a bucket list.

1. I also have wanted to see the Northern Lights for some time now.
2. Travel more of the U.S. on the road seeing all the great sites and places our country has to offer. I spent 8 days doing this with a friend 4 years ago and traveled all through Colorado and many of the state parks and that was very cool.
3. Fishing Panama with my bud over there. He's a retired Navy Commander & he has always had an open invitation I just haven't taken the time.
4. I love inshore fishing and I'd like to check that out in La.
5. Taking my wife to Lake Tahoe in a couple of months, that was one on her bucket list.
6. I'm not sure why I've never had the urge of going out of country when there's so much I haven't seen right here in the U.S. but I'd be open to going anywhere in the world to fish a beautiful area.

Loading my Whaler on flat bed and shipping it ahead of a flight to Mount Desert Island - Acadia National/Bar Harbor.

The place is amazingly rich with mariner history and not to mention a beautiful place - breath taking I might add.

I spent 8 nights there with my wife and kids last summer it was well worth the money and the most I have ever dropped on a vacation.

For instance lunch equaled Lobster x2 wife and I,grilled chicken sandwich for number one son and clams for son number 2 a few soft drinks and one beer 170.00 with a tip and this was a run of a mill lobster pond on Somes Sound on the side of the road.

I will be going back though !

My SIL and her husband own a palace on a cliff overlooking the entrance to the harbor.
