Entry #1 is "Own a Corvette."
As a kid, I thought Corvettes were cool. I loved the stingray body style with the slick curves and the big tires. Then, my Uncle Bill bought a brown one. I believe his was a '74. It was the coolest car I had ever seen. And then, we got to ride in it a few times, and I was hooked for sure. I don't know what year he bought it, but I would guess I was no more than 6 or 7 years old. Those rides in my Uncle's car made a lifelong impression on me.
The thing to understand about my #1 list item is that I do not necessarily want a Brand-New Corvette at all. I just want to be able to own one some day. I have a every confidence that it will happen after I cross a couple of other items off my list (like the whole paying off debts thing).
There are some things in life that stick with you from the time you are very young. It may be a certain song, a certain smell, a certain joy ride in a Corvette.
