I should really think about this longer before I answer. But off the top of my head, I’ll say I’d like to go to Africa. I’d like to sky dive. I’d like to meet Johnny Depp. Oh, and design my own clothing line. I think those are a few of the things I wouldn’t mind doing before I pass on to the next life.

My first thing would be to see Italy, especially Abruzzi and Tuscany, where my family comes from. Stateside, I would love to check off a list of the top rivalries in college football. I want to see Michigan/Ohio State at the Big House. I want to see Florida/Tennessee on the third Saturday in September at Neyland Stadium. The same goes for the Red River Shootout, Army/Navy, and USC/Notre Dame. Also, as much as I hate the Yankees, this summer, I plan to see a game at Yankee Stadium before it dies.

I enjoy nostalgia. Historic districts of cities, ’50s diners, stuff like that. One of the things I’d most like to do is travel the Mother Road, historic Route 66, from Chicago to Santa Monica. I’d like to be able to take the time, at a leisurely pace, and see all the places along Route 66. So much of it is being restored while some is in ruins. I’d like to explore it all and imagine what life in the USA was like when the road first opened.

There are a lot of things that come to mind. First, I want to spend the Fourth of July in Washington, D.C., at the National mall. I’d also like to travel around the world on a sailboat with my wife. Last and most important, someday I’m hoping to be able to teach my future grandkids how to fish.

I want to cruise the Mediterranean on a sailboat. And, I’ll write a book and have it published. But hey, if you’re writing this and it’s going to be in the Reader, I’m sort of being published already. So that’s kind of cool. But it would be a novel I’d really like to see the light of day.

I would like to ride my motorcycle from Alaska to Panama. I’d also like to jump 20 buses, in memory of the late Evel Knievel. I would like to vote someone into office that was actually someone that I liked and felt good voting for. Maybe that last one I will do before I die. But I’m doing less and less riding on my bike, so I doubt I’ll ever do the long treks I’ve often thought about.
