100 Things to do Before I Die (okay...actually about 40)

I have long said that I have only 1 material goal in my life - visit and do something meaningful (experience the people or geography) in all 50 states - but I have recently seen some lists like this on different blogs, so I decided to make me a list of 100 things to do before I die. Most of them are just things it would be nice to do. But some of them I take seriously and actually work for. I’ll try to put the important ones at the top of the list, but outside of the top 10 they are pretty much just random.

Feel free to comment on my list, or put your own top 10 list in the comments.
