It would be a shame to never make it to Europe.

I did. Scotland, Wales and England in 1999. Scotland and Stonehenge was the life goal, the other were extra. I also went all over Germany in 1996.

The Grand Canyon is definitely worth seeing

I think it is great that you have a set of goals and are working towards them like that. Keep at it. And, happy birthday!

I have an SBR and two suppressors. I almost bought a full auto Uzi. But I can aim bump fire my SBR (3lb trigger) with no difficulty. To the point that I feel like I kinda do have full auto capability, and can't justify the money.

Also, these goals were made when my only gun was a red ryder BB gun, and I had not caught the EBR virus yet.

I went scuba diving in the Grand Caymans, it's by far one of the most badass things you can do. Put scuba-diving on top of that list

I need to put Hawaii on that list, and scuba can be tied with it.

Happy birthday. Have one for me, and I'll have several for you.

ETA: Definitely move SCUBA diving to the top of your list. It is one of the coolest things a human being can do.

Sadly, you're getting old. Better start combining things:

Skydive in full scuba gear into the Grand Canyon.

Drive across country, hang glide into the grand canyon wearing scuba gear and a parachute. Ditch the glider halfway down.

Wait wait wait wait wait. You are telling me I should not ride a motorcycle that I for the most part have control of, while wearing protective gear, because it is dangerous, but I should fly to Spain, put on white shorts and a tshirt with a red scarf, and run down a cobblestone street with 20 pissed off bulls chasing me?

The name Einstein suits you.
