Number 27 - See an Erupting Volcano

Climbing the final leg on foot, you feel a small rumble and then hear a tremendous roar as you climb, Yasur is greeting you. What a sight to behold.

Number 49 - See both Solar and Lunar eclipses

And while it was not total in Brisbane (83%), it was a strange thing watching it through the solar glasses seeing a massive slice of the sun missing.

Number 10b: Visit Chernobyl

Chernoybyl and Pripyat. Hauntingly beautiful, incredible experiance in an amazing country.

Number 11 - Storm Chase a Tornado*

Partial complete, but an amazing experience even as they were "Rain Wrapped". Huge epic storms with beautiful structure and powerful lightning.

Number 23b: Spend a night in the desert

The heat, the cold and the incredible vast distances of sand.

Number 74: Learn to Fly a Plane

Completed 11 August 2017
Archerfield Airport, Aeropro Eurofox-3K / Aerotrek A240

With my fear of heights, I had the idea of taking the easy way out with number 72. I was planning on learning in a large professional flight simulator however, my plan was highjacked when a few friends from work chipped in to buy me a “Learn to Fly” voucher from Groupon for my birthday. So instead of keeping my feet on the ground, in a comfortable 747 flight simulator, I was heading out to Archerfield Airport to actually fly with FlightScope Aviation.
