What have you always wanted to do?

There are a few things that I really, really want to do:
Ride in a hot air balloon (I'm terrified of heights, so this is a challenge)
White water rafting
One last trail ride, preferably down the Grand Canyon on a mule (I've done it down Kaulapapa, and it was pretty scary).

Keep realism in your answers ... things that you are actually likely to do.

There are several things I would like to do, just for the adrenalin rush, but,yep, too chicken!!
The most, I guess, fly in a jet, not an airliner, but a military, gotta be fast.
More practical though, just fly, I've never been on an airplane in my life.

Well since i love to hunt, i'd like to hunt Africa without it getting canceled for a riot, or some other crazy thing.

I gave up trying after my hunt was canceled "again" (about 10 years ago) for the 6th time, when another bombing prevented my flight in.
I know it's not their fault, however, it makes for a person to feel very unsafe going overseas.

I've ridden in a balloon a couple of times now. It was on my list of things I wanted to do, but I was afraid also. I had the good fortune to meet a balloon pilot through some friends and got up the courage to go. It was just fabulous. I can't wait to do it again next year.

i would like to be published some more. i was already published, for some very small things and it was rather cool to see something that came directly from the archives of my mind tucked between the pages of a book.

I really, really would like to own a little wine and cheese shop where I can sell some foods we make from scratch and things like prosciutto, smoked salmon, pate, and lots of authentic Italian foods and pottery.
