Tornado's are definitely exciting to watch! I just got funnel clouds on video the other day.

Great list!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Man, those are cool things, indeed.

Tink said...

Wow, that's an impressive list. I'd love to experience most of those!
Thanks for visiting my deity TT.
Btw, the view from your balcony is stunning!

Sounds like you've had an interesting life.

I've lived in a couple of countries, but I think it costs money, lol.

It probably sounds kind of odd, but I have ALWAYS wanted to see a tornado. Not up close, but just out there in the distance passing by. I find them fascinating. I watch specials about it all the time! Great list!

That's a great list. It's called really living. An interesting life.

Sometimes the most memorable times are those that don't cost money. This is a great list.

Laura said...

Looks like you've lived an amazing life. Thanks for sharing it with us! Happy T13!

I lived in other countries courtesy of the Air Force. It wasn't totally free, but definitely the cheapest way to see the world if you can avoid war zones.

GreenishLady said...

There's only one thing on that list that I've done, but quite a few I'd like to do. Great list!

Pitched 3 no hitters? Very Impressive.
Sleeping under the stars is a beautiful thing.
Thanks for stopping by.

Wow - I think your last one is the most incredible of all.

Hazel Nut said...

Wow, out of all those amazing things I am struck by your 3 no-hitters. I am some kinda strange. Living in Canada I have seen the northern lights exactly once but it was the most amazing time.
Great list - who needs money! (well, other than gas money..)

Ann said...

Great list. I lived in Orlando for a time, and could watch the space shuttle launches while sitting on my sofa in the living room. I grew up just north of Ft. Lauderdale and we could see the plume from the night launches all the way down there. :)

What an amazing TT...each one of those would be great expanded on. A very interesting life being lived
- Wow!

Robin said...

What a fascinating and diverse glimpse into your life.

After several weeks of hearing friends in the US talk about their tornado warnings I dreamed last night that a tornado went flying over my head. Does that count?

Lucy said...

wow, I've only done ONE on your list Rick! You have really experienced some amazing 'free' things! ( can you guess which one I mean?)

Lucy,

I can't decide between helping refugees in Vietnam or working in a mine. But it is probably seen a total eclipse.

The Q Family said...

That's amazing.. Living in other countries is definitely more fun than visiting.

paisley said...

i live in the foothills and we have some extremely ominous roads that i have to drive to get anywhere... these are of course much higher elevation i am sure,, but i will tell you,,living where i do has caused me to nearly quit driving!!!!!!

and i love the idea of idaho.. (southern) potato's and all.....

SandyCarlson said...

Thta is an impressive list. You have an interesting life.

myrtle beached whale said...

I have always felt that my little life was pretty uneventful. I guess I just watch too much TV and read too many books.

Redheels said...

You have done some really great things for FREE. I can tell by reading your posts your life has been much more than uneventful. You have experienced alot of very good things.
