Can't stand heights so a balloon is completely out :(

For my 70th I got this... http://www.adrenalin.com.au/rally-drivi ... port/12417

Busting to do it but waiting for some decent Spring weather. :D :D :D

My ultimate bucket list would be to drive a V8 supercar around Bathurst. Done it in the Prado towing my caravan but that's just not quite the same :(

Hey OT, you can do some fast driving at Calder :D I got to drive an Auscar there around the oval/tilted track (fantastic) but I think you can also drive around on the flat track next door?! Not quite the same as Bathurst, I know! :D


Oh, and as far as the bucket list goes; one day I hope to get to Broome and the Kimberleys

A flight in a hot air balloon. And a flight in a Catalina. My wife and I do most things together. The balloon is easy for me but can't get my wife up in one.

Top of my list is to skydive in a wingsuit, the first time I seen it I thought that's me, but the wife has other ideas.

A flight in an Army Tiger gunship helicopter; doesn't have to have weapons loaded but that would also be good.

would like to travel to all the geographic points in Australia- N S E W and the "couple" of different centres
as well as the corner of the states.

Wouldn't mind doing the Len Beadell tracks in the order he made them- trying to cover the same country and the points of interest noted in his books but not necessarily on the tracks.

Swimming with sealions in SA
Feeding the amazing tuna in SA looks great
Feeding wild dolphins in either Monkey Mia or Tin Can Bay.
