I’d introduce myself, but I’m holding-out for #92….;) A great substitution for #100 would be “A bottle of 2002 Abreu Cabernet Sauvignon, Madrona Ranch”.

2 Runner Susan February 6, 2013 at 4:56 pm

I like the way you think, Brett.

3 Erin Bailey February 6, 2013 at 11:21 pm

I LOVE this list!

I’m missing – run a gorgeous off-road 50 miler with Petra and Jeanne and then have beautiful food and wine while we overshare.
petra´s last blog post ..Yes.

There, Petra. Updated – #101

Good stuff. Got to get planning this then no?
petra´s last blog post ..Yes.

Love #50. You’ve been topless on the Riviera and we missed the photos? I think you can cross out ‘make a difference in my community’ — what about the fracking protests?

I miss seeing the Northern Lights. And I’m glad you had that San Diego marathon on your list since I still love telling the story of how we met at mile 18 . . . .

For the cookbook challenge, I’ll loan you the kids’ Star Wars cookbook. You would have a blast cooking through that one and blogging about it. I’m not sure all of it is actually food.

Not sure what you’ll be able to do about that space shuttle.

I’m having feelings here.

Regarding #4 – me too. Maybe we can go together
Regarding #9 – can I come?
Regarding #18 – I have an idea for that. We must chat
Regarding #32 – I would do that with you, gladly
Regarding #37 – hell yes!
Regarding #42 – I can help you learn how
Regarding #62 – let’s go to Cabo together and do that. Must get scuba certified first
Regarding #101 – can I come?

I have done 3, 8, 13, 18, 27, 28, 32, 39,42,44,52,55,57,61,66,78,83,89, and 97. But I am way older than you so you have time to catch up! ha!

12 Beth March 26, 2013 at 5:13 pm

That is a great list…I love Kiss a Stranger :)

13 Daniel April 10, 2013 at 10:11 am

Get through No. 99 in one evening and you can probably tick off No. 25 or No. 100 while you’re at it…

We have a lot of similar destinations on our list! Wanna do IMTX with me in 2015 and cross #18 off the list? Also, the hubs can help out with #66 and #97. And if you complete #18, then technically does that mean you have #32 done?
