    ...where I want to go, or what I want to see/do for my 40th birthday in Aug.

    So...what do I want to see, what do I want to do, and where do I want to go?

    Suggestions? I've done the whole drop $2000 in Vegas thing, so don't need to do that...

    See the barrier reef. It might not be there that much longer.

    Fine, be that way.
    Take a helicopter tour of the grand canyon. I was 45 before I did it, but my daughter was 21 (her 21st b-day present).

    Canada might be fun, tho.

    I'm in the middle of bum fuck something...but that's ok. I can easily take 7 days off work, and I'll actually get into a plane now, and let it leave the ground. :D

    I love Canada. We took a trip from Toronto through Montreal and Quebec and it was one of the most fun vacations ever.

    I haven't done it yet but taking a train through the Canadian Rockies is told to be quite a breathtaking experience.
