We could all make a list of 1000 things we want to do before we die but what is the number 1 thing. The thing that if you didn't do and yet died you would feel your life was not complete??? I am going to have to get back to ya'll on this one because the more I think about all of the things that I want to do the harder it is for me to pick just one thing. So guys just ONE thing that you have to do before you die??? I am interested to see what kind of responses we get.

Wow this is a tough one. Two things immediately sprung to mind when I read your question but the more that I think about it I would really like to do a lot of thinking about this to make sure that I come up with the right answer. At the moment, I think that I have to pick become a published author. My Aunt lived with us from the time that she turned 87 until she passed away 5 years later and the one thing that I learned from her was that she had a lot of regrets. I learned a valuable lesson from that experience and made up my mind that I would do everything in my life that I wanted to do so that I didn't have those same regrets. I made a list of everything that I wanted to do but I didn't think about prioritizing them and your question is making me rethink it.

It does make you think doesn't it. I have some many..I want to visit Antarctica, I want to go on an African safari, I want to cruise around the world, back pack through Europe, live in both Japan and Italy for at least a year, have children! Looking at it, its so hard to say that one thing is more important then the other..my jury is def. still out on this question!

Ooooh. Backpack through Europe and living in Italy for a year are also on my list too. I'm hoping to do the Italy for a year thing in 2010. Best of luck to you on living out your visions

Hi, the one thing I want to do before I die is travel the world. I have only been in the North American continent from Cananda to Mexico.I would like to see other countries.

My number one thing that I would love to do before I die, well these are like at the top of my list. I would want to do something that nobody would ever expect me to do. Like go sky diving, bungee jumping, and rock climbing and go to Paris. If I don't do that then I don't want to leave here yet. These things are things that nobody would expect me to do. I guess because nobody would see me as that type of person who would want to go skydiving, bungee jumping or rock climbing.
