I've been scuba diving in Bermuda. Just an awesome experience. I'd recommend moving that up on the list. And do it while on vacation in the Carribean or somewhere where the water is warm and crystal clear. I actually got to swim under a coral reef. Back in the sand, looking straight up 40 feet to the surface through coral. Will. Never. Forget. That. To scuba dive, you usually need to be certified. Where I was, certified me in a 2 hour course right there on the beach. That allowed me a 25 minute dive with an instructor at my side. I can't remember exactly how much it is, but it wasn't all that expensive, $150-$200 or so and well worth the money.

Big Mac,

I am doing just that this fall. I am turning 60 this year and I am going on my first archery elk hunt this fall. kind of a trial run this year with a buddy that has been doing it for years.Been applying for points for a couple of years and going with oct tags this year. Next fall (2018) we will be able to draw for the area he wants to get in to. You don't get any younger!

One bucket list item was to antelope hunt with my brother. We did that. Fun. Would like to do it again,  but this time on our own.

My dream hunt; archery hunt elk out west! Hopefully someday 

Big Mac

#1 on my bucket list...........I would love to drink one lousy stinken beer that was purchased by my cheap azz brother in law. He sure knows how to put them away but has never brought a single beer to any family functions. This has been going on for 35+ years now so I guess it's a long shot to cross that one off.........

It rains almost everyday in the PNW. No sun. Kurt Cobain didn't have a chance.

Cutties in the canyon in the Kalama River WA. Spring Kings n steelies running but spring floods more than usual. Way over flood stage.  A rockslide has closed the road for a month. They blew up a house size boulder in OR the other day. I love Wisconsin but life is a trip.

I'm still waiting for Shania Twain to come to the door and say, "Take me, I'm yours!"

If we try to do this in 2017, must move quickly. BTW, about $400 per passenger for a 9 hour day. That's a very long time if prone to sea sickness.

Sounds good to me, if we find enough linkers to go I'm in.

Check with your friend and see if he knows of any processors in the area that will vacuum seal and freeze your catch. If you find one, they will likely have wax-lined insulated freezer boxes that you can pack up to 50 lbs each and check as luggage. I think we paid $75 for 4 boxes last August on Alaska Airlines. The place I’ve been to handles all of the cleaning, freezing and packing as part of the lodge package but I recall that my former neighbor did it the way I described above. The charter captain cleaned the fish and they just brought the fillets to a processor. Most hotels that I’ve stayed in Alaska have large walk-in freezers for storing your catch. It’s pretty common.

Sounds like a fun trip but I wouldn’t be able to swing it having just been there 6 months ago. We stay at a remote wilderness, all-inclusive lodge so it’s a bit hard on my stack of fun coupons and the reason I only go every 4-5 years. And I still have 60-70 lbs of halibut and salmon in the freezer.
