    Who’s got a bucket list? 3 things that are on mine are 1.mardi gras..everything about this sounds right up my alley..
    2. Going to and playing St. Andrews..I love golfing, and this is on the list
    3. Being a self admitted ‘sports junkie’ I’m gonna make a trip to KC and watch my chiefs play maybe next year at Arrowhead.
    They’re playing in Seattle this year, but after checking out prices for tix, the commute and all..and especially being around Christmas...I’d rather spend my $ on a trip to KC!! What do you say pinheads..let’s hear some of your things on your bucket list..

    Go up north one day when the leaves are changing to their fall colors. Relive my 4th of July trip only at a different time.

    A peak in the new Stern building.

    I did that! Bills vd Packers in 2005 I think? Farve said after the game that it was the coldest game he ever played in. (sadly, the Bills lost )

    Not much I can think of I haven't already done.

    I never have been to a Super Bowl but I think I'd rather watch it on TV than pay $2k anyway.

    Did go to three of the four World Series Games though when the Angels beat the Giants and they won all three.

    At $60 a ticket, I'd say we really got our money's worth.

    1) Beating all my pins, and solving all my toys

    2) Egypt tour with family

    3) Summer in Italy

    4) Grandchildren

    Retire young so I could volunteer more

    Remember it like it was yesterday! Loved the Angels and was a huge collector, I have lots of world series stuff kicking around the house. Didn't hurt my favorite player won the MVP award too!!

    For me, Mardi-gras and a Saints home game would be top of the list right now.

    To stay away from the bucket for another 40 or 50 years or so and be active/independent while doing it.

    #11 2 years ago

    I need to see a redwood tree in person.

    Should be on every football fan's bucket list. No place like it!

    If I wasn't so fat and I didn't have a heart or back problem, I always wanted to climb a big mountain. Like Aconcagua or Kilimanjaro. Outside of that I want to see an "Old Firm" soccer match between Celtic and Rangers, the Derby between Manchester City and Manchester United as well as a match between Barcelona and Real Madrid at Camp Nou. So a lot of soccer stuff. All the bands I love are dead or too old to be worth seeing but I wouldn't mind getting tickets to the original Misfits if they ever do anymore concerts. Pinball wise, I will own a Quicksilver or a Warlok before I die.

    I don't have an official bucket list but I always wanted to see a bear in the wild in Wisconsin. Finally did a couple months back.

    My other one is to buy a pinball in my home town. 14 years of collecting. Around 80 pinballs have come and gone and I've yet to buy one in Edgerton. I know there has to be some hidden basement gem around here somewhere.

    I'm sure there are a few other things if I thought about it.

    Bucket list I've had since high school.

    1- Cage diving with Great White shark(s)
    2- Skydive (complete)
    3- Visit Easter Island
    4- Visit a humane elephant sanctuary for a week

    #16 2 years ago

    Amazingly, I share a lot of the same things as you, OP. I don't necessarily have a concrete list, but going to New Orleans, playing St Andrews, and watching the Packers at Arrowhead are definitely in my top things to do.

    Quoted from AlexF:

    Around 80 pinballs have come and gone and I've yet to buy one in Edgerton.

    I bought a Firepower from a guy in Edgerton one time. Easiest pin purchase of my life!

    Pretty amazing they are. Especially the one that is cut out so you can drive right thru it.

    The famous one fell last year.

    Quoted from Foo:

    Great Idea - difficult to describe the feeling of standing next to something as big/old as these trees are.
    I'd also suggest a visit to the Giant Sequoias; they left even more of an impression on me than the redwoods did.

    1) Own and then learn to fly a Paramotor
    2) Sail the Caribbean on a Catamaran
    3) Visit and Watch as many College Basketball Games in Historic gyms as possible (of the ones that are left) around the US

    Fall tree, just don't fall an me.

    OP, I played a couple rounds at the old course at St. Andrew's. Took a class at the university. The sandtraps are like caves! I'm not very good and it's always so windy by the beach. It was a blast to walk the course but a frustrating day of golf to say the least.

    Quoted from Frippertron:

    If I wasn't so fat and I didn't have a heart or back problem, I always wanted to climb a big mountain.

    I don't really have the urge to walk up a mountain, however a few years back I rode my mountain bike to the top of Saddleback mountain- twice.

    It's not the tallest mountain in the world, but it's what we got.

    Takes about 3-4 hours to get to the top, and about a half hour to get back down. Big fun!

    "Saddleback Mountain, at 5,687 feet above sea level, is only 1,000 feet lower than the highest mountain east of the Mississippi River. Reaching the summit is on many bucket lists. This shows the mountain lightly dusted with snow after a storm a few years ago."

    I'm glad I got through most of my bucket list when I was in my 30's, as circumstances has made it impossible to do now. I definitely suggest that people should try and cross as many things off their list as early as you can, because you never know what life will deal you.

    I've lost track of how many countries I've visited but it's around 60-70 or so. Some of my highlights are

    Visiting a remote village in the Amazon Jungle in Peru, and joining an authentic Carnival celebration with the villagers many who had never seen a white person before.

    Travelling through Egypt, the second time with my wife an first son... While the Pyramids are awesome the temples at Karnak and Ambu Simbel are breathtaking. Here we bribed the police to allow us to take a picture with our son on his camel.

    Seeing mountain gorillas in the wild in Rwanda (a few minutes after I took this picture, the momma Gorilla charged at me, though veered off at the last minute and went about her business). That was one of the scariest moments in my life.

    Going on Safari in Kenya... We drove around a rock and this Lion was sitting there within 5' of our truck. We saw all of the big 5

    Visiting Madagscar. We spent a couple of nights in a hut on the beach on this small island off the coast of Madagascar, surrounded by Ruffed Lemurs. In 3 days, we never saw another tourist... just the occasional villager going out to sea in a canoe to fish. Total cost was $20/night for our own tropical island!

    Visiting India... getting to the Taj early in the morning so it was just us and the monkeys

    Visiting Jordan and seeing all the sites including Petra
