...and then brag about it at every opportunity, just to stroke your own hyper-inflated sense of self-importance.

Now let's hear that story about packing that big pistol to defend yourself against man-eating grizzly bears in the Yukon, Wheeldoggie. Because it's as relevant and exciting as the rest of your self-aggrandizing fantasies... yawn... zzzzzzzz.....

"And no one can force me to do otherwise. And guess what, Im happier and safer. My right too," sme.

I completely agree! The path that we took is certainly not for everyone. Have a good life.

His Cinco de Mayo party starts on the eighth of March. The circus ran away to join him. He has inside jokes with people he’s never met. He is... the most interesting man in the world.

sme, troll, et al, you gave me a good laugh this morning. As I read your comments I realized that you are angry at the thought of someone who actually enjoys living and has had some excitement in life. I am sorry that you apparently have been disappointed with your own lives, but that is usually a matter of personal choice. I have found that the people you associate with often reflect the type of person you are and the life you have chosen. My wife and I have some truly amazing friends who have also had unusual lives. When we get together the air is filled with laughter. I figure your memories are the spice that livens your appetite for living. Hope yours are as tasty as mine.

Troll, I am sorry that your life has been so small. I can only assume that you chose security and comfort as a focus for yourself and largely shied away from taking chances, especially ones that might involve personal injury. There is certainly nothing wrong with that. My wife and I, on the other hand, were attracted to wild areas and to new and challenging experiences. To be honest, there was a cost to this lifestyle. But on the whole, it was a wonderful experience. The one requirement is that you must be willing to take risks and occasionally deal with negative outcomes. It means that you are willing to make memories. Hopefully, it is not too late for you to give it a try.

My life has been fun. There have been some rough spots and a few close calls, but I can't complain. Lots of wonderful and unusual people along the way. At the end of life there is one of two things a person can say to sum up his or her experiences; "I wish I had" or "I'm glad I did." Mine will definitely be the latter.

You can see his charisma from space. On every continent in the world, there is a sandwich named after him. He can speak Russian... in French. He is... the most interesting man in the world.

The widow in this story is apparently trying to turn her grief into something positive for others who may need a little help to improve their lives. Over a number of years I have known over twenty people who died in aircraft accidents. Some were pilots and others passengers or crew for aircraft related operations. I was lucky to walk away from a couple of incidents with only minor injuries. In one case a close friend who was a pilot died while attempting to save a gravely sick patient to a hospital. This woman is honoring her husband by helping others. Gotta admire her for that.
