    I'll start it out. I have fished all five of the Great Lakes, I'm sure that there are others, but never met anyone that did. Most of the focus was on the Chinook, or King Salmon fishing , but I have also caught Coho and Atlantic salmon , Steelhead, Brown Trout and Lake Trout, along with all the other gamefish in these lakes.

    To this day never have uttered the tale neither have :nono: the “few others”.
    Not really sure what’s unique…:blink:…stood on a corner in Winslow Arizona once but there’s a song about that…:headbang:…so some others have done it too. Maybe more than a few. :eek:
    But other than this current post I say this could get interesting. :nworthy:
     
    Tirement party over again…..poor thing.

    Drank fermented mare's milk and eaten all parts of a sheep's head in a yurt in Kyrgyzstan. Lots of central Asians have done that, obviously, but I'll bet very few here have :goofy:

    I climbed the steps of the Leaning Tower of Piza and walked around on the rooftop.

    Back in the day I broke the high school record in the 100 yard dash. The next year another girl came along and obliterated my record. I did over come a real fear of heights and walk across the suspension bridge at the Royal Gorge -- I'm proud of that -- I may be lying a tad. There may have been a part in the middle where I crawled. I know for sure crawling across the bridge is not unique because I saw another woman do it- she had a full blown panic attack. I kept my composure. Just barely. Up until 2003 it had the title of the tallest suspension bridge.

    On consecutive years, Hitchhiked twice to the West Coast of Canada & back- minimum 8400 Miles, 6 States & 5 Provinces.

    1) On Trip Uno, was picked up by a young woman in Wisconsin, who subsequently paid for the motel room and I uhhhh... broke my maiden at 18!

    2) On Trip Two, met another woman in Vancouver while SHE was hitchhiking and after taking her to the Hospital for a throat infection. found a free apartment for 4 days.

    We didn’t see the light of day for that time!

    Towards the end of the month, it’ll be our 49th Anniversary!

    Got run into by a bear. Yup, a bear ran into the side of my car last week after I left one of my patients. We were both fine but confused and frightened.

    1) Crawling out of my sleeping bag under a huge evergreen tree I came face-to-face with Prince Charles and Price Andrew. Prince Charles bade me, "Good morning." (1976 Olympic Games, Cité du Havre, Montreal, QC, on the St. Lawrence River)

    2) Jm Plunkett ~ He let me hold his Super Bowl ring at an airport on the way to Las Vegas. We had quite the chat.

    3) I lost a game of 9 Ball and $5 when I was in college to light-heavyweight boxing champion Archie Moore.

    4) Rode a Greyhound bus and it's partners around the circumference of the United states and parts of Canada. I was young and may never get on a Greyhound bus again. I also hitchhiked on this trip to Calais, Maine.
