Mars has a definite appeal. But, isn't that a big commitment? Wouldn't that take two or three years round trip?

Awww. Hope you win the lottery, Kayelle! Make sure DH takes pics!

I do more prefer the underwater scenery, but wouldn't mind the helicopter and aircraft carrier rides....

I'm sure if I made it to Mars, I would not be coming back...I might even stay on the moon if allowed.

And no shuttle for me. I want to parachute into the ocean and get picked up by a helicopter with that basket thingy... and then get a ride on an aircraft carrier.

I would not.

But I'd love to see the video of pacanis' trip.

I would love to spend a week on a rotating ferris wheel space station/hotel. You'll have artificial gravity so you can stay put and maneuver normally.
I can relax at the bar with some martinis and listen to some Strauss on my ipod...
