Been to Canada - never, eh?

Been on a Helicopter
Been to the opposite side of the country

Gone Snow Skiing - would love to
Gone skinny dipping outdoors - I'm kind of sad to say no, but I'm still young! I've got time!

yea! This was fun to read. At least for me. . you need to make it down to the lake for the 4th. . we might work on that Skinny Dipping - very exhilerating! Before the kids get too big to remember or be embarassed.

This is great -- I can't wait to read the rest of them!!

Oh, and sorry about the Bulldogs. And while I'm proud that Tech is ranked #7 I know it's mainly because we didn't play. I am a realist, after all.

You always have a place to stay if you want to "check the box" on visiting DC!

I'm pretty sure we accompanied each other on many missions to the Taco Bell freshman year, what with it being 45 seconds' drive from our apartment! I legitimately remember counting quarters before going one night.
