    I don't think you have any time to 'kill' going by that list.

    did you win lotto RB?
    Be interesting to work out how much it will all cost you, learning to fly a helicopter won''t be cheap.
    I actually have quite a few of yours on my "to do" list too!

    That is a nice list, one thing I would add is: Hunt something that has a fair chance to kill you - Buffalo, bear, big cat or other member of the Big5

    Shit thats a list an a half. Lucky your a young bugger, there are a few there that are on my list.
    Might want to put the marriage and kids a bit lower down the list, once you do that some of your list will be a bit harder to do.......

    Cheers for the comments, it is quite a list but one must have goals of some sort.

    Meb - Forever young...

    Paora - No lotto sadly, it will be one thing at a time and I'll settle for a ride in chopper for now.

    Hendrik470 - Cape buff is on another list, but I may have to settle for NZ wild cattle...

    Shootm - the list is in no particular order, no plans to settle down anytime soon haha.


    I've completed a few things on the list...

    - Photo from Pi mai (2011) which over the years has basically evolved into a giant free for all water/paint fight, a week partying with some great people, couldn't go outside without behind soaked.



    - Went trekking in Sapa, Vietnam.

    Photo of a Hmong women overlooking a Sapa village.


    - Lived/worked in South East Asia

    In the field, outside the village chiefs office window, Muang Thateng, Xekong Province, Lao PDR.



    - Learnt basic Lao (can understand more than I can speak but I'm getting there)

    - Have been part of a large muster (Mahia), but would like to participate in a multiday one.

    - Have a design in mind for the smoker I'm going to build, same goes for the chiller... the bricks are just sitting there waiting for me. Also, instead of building a clay pizza oven (which seems to be the craze at the moment), I would like to build a cooking kiln instead, one that can fit a small pig/lamb.

    - Have rode a horse, but need more experience/confidence.


    NOW TO FIND SPONSORS!

    I do not have a list or a bucket of what I want to do. I am simply grateful to have done what I have done so far, to be healthy and hardworking, surrounded by wonderful friends who are people I admire and respect. I could aspire to climb a mountain, ski in Colorado, or skydive but being in the fielld with my dogs is the magic I seek.
