What’s on your adventure list?

Naturally, my adventure list is going to include a hunt or two. I want to go up to the Yukon territory to hunt moose, and next year to Colorado for a mule deer hunt in the mountains. As for travel, I’d love to go to Spain to check out Madrid and some of the cities like Barcelona, you know, try to eat my way through the country. I hear Spain is one of the best when it comes to food.
