1 Run with Bulls
Pamplona, Spain - Jul 7-10 2017
Here. We. Go!!! This is a traditional "Bucket List" for most people. For me it has always been something I was intrigued by. Third largest celebration in the world, massive drinking, 1 ton animals that easily outrun humans with their hooves and sharp horns running on narrow slick cobblestone streets.
Seriously what could possibly go wrong?
2 Visit Africa
TBD - South Africa
Safari, Wildlife Ranch, Great White Conservation
4 Chase a Tornado
TBD - Midwest USA
As a kid growing up in Kansas City tornadoes are not scary to those of us that grew up in the Land of Oz. I can remember crawling up on the roof of my house with my Dad looking for tornadoes as the air raid sirens blared. This time instead of looking, it will be time to hunt them.
5 Dive with Whale Sharks
2018 - Cancun MX
Diving with a huge fish is always fun. Especially if they can technically swallow you. Only thing you have to avoid is being directly in front of that huge mouth!
6 Bungee Jump Macau Tower
TBD - China
Now the highest jump location in the world (Royal Gorge I'm still not happy with you). Looks like some Chinese food will be in my future if I'm gonna notch the number 1 location as part of the Evolution
8 Bungee Jump Ponte Colossus
Italy - Weather Cancellation
Milan ends up being one of the pivot point locations as we jump the Verzasca Dam and run with the bulls. So why not hit the 11th highest structure in the world, Ponte Colossus... Spartacus and Caesar ain't got nothing on me
9 Live in the Mountains Alone for a Week
Maybe it is a desire to get in touch with my inner "Naked and Afraid" or "Alone" reality TV self. Still the thought of roughing it and seeing how to survive in the mountains sounds fun. Time of the year needs to be determined... thus no bear hibernation time here
10 Dive with Sting Rays
TBD - Cayman Islands
A beautiful location for a fun and exciting experience, but things can and do happen with these little water disks
11 Exploration Arctic/North Pole
Fun with Polar Bears
12 Sumo Wrestling
TBD - Japan
Me vs. the immovable force... no literally it's like a big human boulder
13 Visit a Mysterious Ancient Site
There is something about the thought of visiting a mysterious site full of unknowns and things that one can not easily explain
14 Dean's Blue Hole Dive
Dive into the abyss
15 Cross a Desert
Definitely a physical and mental challenge. Nothing too exciting for me to be hot, thirsty and covered by sand when there is no sea or oceans close by.
16 Hike to Base Camp of Mt. Everest
Though the days of climb Mt. Everest are probably gone, why not make it to Base Camp and cheer the next group on... with an oxygen tank
17 Throw a Dart at a Map and Visit the Country it Lands On
If you know me you know I love games of chance. Las Vegas and me have an ongoing love affair so why not blend a little chance with a little travel?
18 Challenge a World Champion
Ahhh the excitement of taking on a world champ. Best case scenario, have a 90+ mph fastball blow past me or a monster drunk posterize me. Worse case, a boxing match or karate match.
19 Live on a Deserted Island for One Week
Hey you can't just do it in the mountains. Why not do it like the age old story of being stuck on an island after a shipwreck a la Gillian's Island?
20 Dive with Great White Sharks
My love of the water, big fish and things that can eat you. No it's not my place of work, but it will be a good break from the day to day grid that is for sure.
Perfect timing with the movie release 47 meters. My friends won't stop yapping about my trip now! Double checking the cables that suspend the cage... or not
21 Exploration Antarctica
Antarctica, Falklands, South America
Penguins... who doesn't like penguins? Honestly probably the coolest animal on the planet. My childhood belief was cows and penguins were aliens that were plotting to overthrow the world. Let's go see what these little guys are really up to
22 Jump Stratosphere Tower
August 25th, 2017
Jumping off things is becoming a habit for me. After jumping some of the world's biggest structures, this 855 ft (260 meters) jump is definitely not a shorty, but it is a decelerator descent.
Still at that height and reaching velocity of 40 mph it will keep me off the Blackjack tables for 60-90 minutes.
So what happens in Vegas won't stay there for me... it will end up on this site!
24 Wing Walking
Seattle, WA May 2018
Heading to Seattle and one must always be thinking about their career. In today's world, one can never feel too safe in one's job.
This is why I've decide to join an elite group of individuals that have the skills to wing walk on an airplane. And no, this is not "wing riding", this is wing walking. Yes crawling around on the plane at 3,500 feet vs. standing on it.
Look for me at your local county fair or nearest air show should my real job not work out!
25 Olympic Bobsled & Skeleton Runs
Whistler, CN March 2018
Never had any Winter Olympic sport aspirations, but if Ski Jumping is on the list, why not add a little bit of bobsledding and the little known skeleton sled riding. Time to pull some "Gs"!
26 Bungee Jump Europabrucke
Innsbruck, Austria October 2018
At 192m it is time to add another jump site to the list so this will be the 5th highest location in the world. Just a simple train ride down from Oktoberfest in Munich to Innsbruck and as simple as falling off a bridge!
28 CN Tower EdgeWalk
TBD - 2018 Toronto, Canada
