There is this Island halfway between South Africa and South America with only 200 something people that want's to hire people to help update it's farming practices. It sounds like heaven on Earth and kinda want to move there.
I've done lots of things. The list is too long to name. I've been swimming with dolphins, jumped out of an airplane skydiving, and hiked across lava fields. I even dated a girl for a short period of time (some adventures are scary). Next up, a ride in a hot air balloon. I've always wanted to. Can't wait.
It was during a strange phase of my youth when I experimented with heterosexuality. Turns out it just wasn't for me. Imagine that. Also I really hated disappointing all my fanboys so it was doomed from the start.. LOL! She and I are still very good friends though.
Oh wow, Mr Wonder, that's very impressive. I think it is amazing the things thAt you learn people have done which you had no idea about, you know? And you talk to them everyday. Thanks W.

Once I spent 3 days living with the Vancouver Island Goat People. There squatters that live in the Old growth forests in Deep Bay and Bowser and raise goats and grow pot. It would be like going to the Amazon jungle and living with the natives that had very little contact with the outside World. Not many city folk have met them and lived to tell about it. Original they were draft dodgers and some of them still think Nixon is looking for them so there pretty paranoid. Cheers!
Well they are all white but I think there native at heart because they have a lot of similar believes like sprits living in trees and streams and stuff like that. There is a small Island across from my Island called Lasquiti it was also first inhabited by American draft dodgers it's a nice Island to visit. Cheers!
When I turned 60 I decided to learn to fly hang gliders. Didn't go on with it but had some fun experiences.
On one occasion I landed in a paddock in which a lone bull stood grazing and there I was strapped into a technicolour kite and no way to get free of it and over the fence before he reached me. But he just kept on chewing. It was almost disappointing. Spoiled the end of the story.
Thanks, Lago. I had an earlier disappointment, back in 1988.
I was swimming at Green Island, off the Great Barrier Reef. It was mid-winter which means squat that far north but only two of us were in the water -- a German tourist and myself. At one point Herr Tourist swam across and said, "Do you want to see a really big shark?" I had to think about that but I figured there were so many fish available for his seafood breakfast that he couldn't be hungry, and if he was bloody-minded I couldn't beat him to the shore anyway, so we went looking. And, yes, it was disappointing when we couldn't find him. But we found some giant rays. A very memorable day.
Well D, It's dificult to Deny an invitation in a situation like that, it is sort of MAN-datory to comply. What are you going to say? "No, it's ok, ill just stay back with the children" Do you know what I mean? That does sound like a good day!
