Howdy all,

A couple of people have asked or pm'ed me about what I have been up to. Well, for those that don't know, one of my oldest friends gave me a flight pass on United for this year. I can fly for almost nothing, as much as I want.

I have up a spot on a good deer lease with guys I REALLY liked, and decided I would go see a few parts of the world I had not been to yet.

So far internationally I have been to the Philippians, Guam, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Jamaica, Colombia, Argentina, and England.

In the USA, New Orleans, Chicago, Oklahoma City, Las Vegas, and Tampa.

It's been a great run so far with a ton of big adventures. Do to some financial set backs I am now working a bit.

No skydiving, but I flew an ultralight, tried fly boarding, scuba, along with zip lining and a few other thrill type things.

That sounds like a hell of a great gift and a whole lot of fun.
What type of ultralight did you fly?

For me it's more like I don't always go on adventures but when I do it's vicariously through chunky

That is friggin awesome. Growing up, the small town I lived in had a big open field adjacent to the highway and the Dairy Queen and they would fly ultralights out there and take off an land in that field. From then on forward, I had always wanted to be a pilot... probably would have if it hadn't been for my disqualifying vision issue.

No I wish I had thought of that. I didnít really care for Guam much. Pretty expensive and developed for my taste.

With the exception of Guam, Jamaica, and England, I have been to those spots. Loved all of them.

With Colombia being one of my favorites, anymore details on where you went and what you did?

Well let's see, a few more highlights......

In Guatemala I climbed a volcano and roasted marshmallows at a volcanic vent, toured Lake Atitlan and ended up accidently in a hippy community.

Fished in Cancun, and golfed almost everywhere.

Jumped off the cliff at Rick's in Jamaica, did a pub crawl.

Climbed the "rock" and took a boat tour in Colombia.

Ran an obstacle race with my daughters in Chicago and we did an escape room.

Spent New Years on Bourbon street in Nawlins.

Killed Zombies in Vegas and went to a couple of shows.

Went to my 40 year highschool reunion (can't believe I am that old)

Went to a ton of museums, my favorite was the imperial war museum in London.

Did the London Eye and Stonehenge. All the tourist spots in London.

Fished in Costa Rica for trophy Rooster fish, but didn't catch any this trip!

I made many friends along the way, and hope to return to some of these places, but there are still places to go and see as well.

That is a few things off the top of my head. We will see what next year brings.
