    Off to Daytona for the 500 at the weekend. I am a little excited to say the least. Not really a fan of oval/yank motorsport, but it’s on the bucket list.

    What’s on yours?

    Edit: oops – mods can you move to chat! thanks.

    I have ticked this one off a few years ago, and it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.

    I know it sounds silly, but planning to die (and, sort of, setting a time limit) doesn’t sit well with me. What do you do once you’ve got through the list? 12 guage?

    I think your list constantly evolves as you get older, so I don’t suppose you’d ever get through it. Unless of course, you’re given a certain length of time to live, in which case you won’t need the 12 guage when you’ve completed your then list.


    Northern Lights for me too, I can’t really explain why but I have a real fascination with them and I think it would absolutely blow me away to see them!

    I’ve applied to study for a year in Trondheim in Norway next year, get the response back next week so fingers crossed.

    Wow. You’d better get busy Jekkyl!!

    That USA C2C will take some time.


    Yes I know, just looked online and USA c2c is approx 2092 miles so at about 75 miles a day (taking it easy) that’s 27 days pure cycling, so doable with nice breaks in 2 months. That’s a nice ambition for the first 2 months of my retirement perhaps.


    Me and 2 young and attractive ladies!!

    …but on a more achievable level I fancy riding (or pushing/carrying) my bike up and down Snowdon!

    EDIT: starts planning weekend in May for a day/morning on Snowdon and a day uplift at Antur Stiniog.

    oh – just remembered another after reading jekkyl’s

    Eat fresh Durian in Thailand

    Jekkyl.. I like your list.

    I have achieved most of my vague notions ( I might make a retro list )

    2 things in the near (ish) future though.

    1. get a dog, never had one, now in a position to get one, hope the wife is not allergic.

    2. buy a open top sports car ( sad I know) never even had a drive in one ( unless you count my old roofless landy)


    Bucket list is always evolving.. Currently within the next couple of years.

    Drive a Nascar
    Hire RV around Utah/Moab, 3 weeks
    3-4 weeks riding in Whistler
    Buy an old car and restore it
    Drive more tracks than just Castle Combe… Ultimately Nürburgring

    Far better parts of Asia to visit Jekkyl (ex-pat in Phuket!)


    I’m sure you’ll enjoy Daytona cbmotorsport. I went to the 200 bike race 20-odd years ago, the stands are hoooge!
