Cheers, Chris. You git. In some form of tag-meets-blog-meets-chain-email-thing, I’ve been “tagged” to task myself with five things to do withins some kind of random timeframe.

Thing is, I’ve done so flipping much in the last year or so it’s kinda hard to pick five! I’ll list things I do really want to do and fully expect to at some point, though I’m not sure when I’ll do them.

  1. “Tube” in Vang Vieng, Laos
  2. Learn to ride a moped/motorbike/dirtbike
  3. Visit all 50 US states and all 13 Canadian territories/provinces
  4. Get a book published. Any book. Even self-published online
  5. Have kids (there’s a long-term one…)

And because she said she’d go mental if anyone did it to her, I’m going to tag Talia. I am such a bastard. And I fancy getting slapped by a cute chick in a corset at Download.

#3 is all well and good, but–and really I speak from experience when I say this–Delaware and New Jersey can be avoided entirely.

You will thank me for this. Trust me.


I can’t just do 48/50 states, though. I might even only spend a few hours in some! Long enough to get a sew-on patch πŸ™‚

Nice to have you back, Babs!


I actually said I’d give you a swift kicking…so no slaps for you…unless you ask very nicely.

Number 3 would be a great adventure indeed. Do it while you can.


Talia – why do I feel it’d be worth my while to ask nicely? πŸ˜‰

Chris – currently aiming to do it next year. After Russia, China and Japan.


He doesn’t need the encouragement Talia… he loves a slap or two πŸ™‚


Oi, don’t encourage her!


Yeah, go on. Encourage her.


I just managed to sit in one and made that count lol


So many states and only 3 months on a visa. Like they don’t want you to visit. Grr.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
