I forgot to add: I have this crazy need to see a tornado! Something powerful that no human has control over what-so-ever! I want to go on a tornado chasing trip! Adrenalin rush!!!!!

No offense to anyone who has been adversely affected by Tornadoes.

I've seen one, scared the heck out of me. It was an F3 less than a mile away. Hope it's the last one I ever see except on TV.

F3 is big. What did you do when you saw it? I'm curious.

There's all kinds of amazing world out there to be seen; from Africa to the Amazon to the Antarctic to the great cities of Europe.

For me?
To sail the northwest passage.
(more accurately -to be on a boat that a real sailor is sailing thru the northwest passage).

Beyond that?
I'd love to see some of that weird and wild country down Utah way-such as f5moab has recently posted pictures of.

And beyond that??
History stuff. The Little Bighorn battlefield. The Alamo (oh definitely the Alamo). Beecher's Island, Adobe Walls, Fort Phil Kearny.

Certainly not everyone's cup of tea. But not really asking for the moon* either.




*while I have no real desire to visit the moon, I'd be quite happy to visit the moons of either Saturn or Neptune

We saw it form SW of where we were and move to the east. I was tracking the storm with local weather radar on my laptop and knew we were out of harms way. The videos you see on the news and Weather Channel are nothing compared to actually witnessing one. The debris in the air was amazing.

Total Adrenaline Rush!! The scarey part came first, then the awesome part. Then you realize how lucky you are, and how unlucky other were.

I've done a lot out of my Bucket list so far that I thought I'd never do. Now I would like to be a snow bird along the Gulf Coast. Oh Ya! I want to go to Goshen and join the Phat Phrog Stunt Crew.

I think you're better off to go chase tornados. It's probably safer.
Plus you might wind up in a Shania Twain video

Born and raised in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies and still have about 100,000 square miles of it left to see. been to Canada and only a bout a million square miles of it left to see. Being from the drylands I will always hold dear the memory of my MIL and FIL crossing th Missourri in our motorhome. My bucket list is never going to be fulfilled. Way too many places to see.
