My Bucket List


Become a better and calmer and better man, husband and father (and, I should add, grandfather).
Save a person’s life (I may have done it already when there was a fair to good potential that the person’s life was threatened but I would like to do so and know for sure that I saved someone from certain death).
Travel to North Dakota and Hawaii (Which I think are the only two states I have not visited.)
Walk 100 miles, or more, in one trip. 

Move out of NY to a free state.

Get a job having to do with firearms (not carrying them but servicing them, being a firearms instructor, selling them, something like those jobs).

Drive cross country and back. I have driven one way several times.

Teach my grandson to shoot (he is only a month and a half old, so that is pretty far off from now).

See my grandson graduate High School.

Take my grandson (my daughter’s son) and my son hunting and fishing together.

Live in relatively good health, health that is better than mine now with much less pain than now, until I am at least 80 to 85.

Catch a fish weighing 75 pounds or more.

Bag a large black bear.

Bag a 12 point (or higher) buck.

Get into reloading. (I am working on that, just ordered almost everything else I need except powder and primers and a new reloading manual and once the floor in the basement is either painted or has linoleum down on it I can set up a bench and start.)
See my son set out on his own to become successful in his life and be happy with it.
There are probably other things I could think of that I would like to do in my remaining time on this earth and in this life but those would be enough to keep me happy now and again.
All the best,
Glenn B

I was trying to comment last night, not sure if it went through, so here's another. Excellent bucket list. I think that you will have a great life working on these!
