I just learned I don't have long to live so I am going on lots of hunts this year.
This is the first day of the rest of my life. I just completed on online calculator that computes your life expectancy based on family history, current age, life style, current health. Not good news.
According to its result I will only live to be 99 years old.
As a result of this shocking revelation I have told my wife that in 2009 I will be hunting coyotes in 5 states, antelope in 2 states, mule deer in 2 states and whitetail deer in 1 state. I will be photographing outdoor stuff in 7 states plus 1 Canadian province.
I will put 40,000 miles on my car traveling west 12 times, nap at 17 rest areas, eat at 43 different restaurants, stay at 12 different hotels, listen to 23 recorded books in my car, tell my wife more often that I love her and think of each of you 18,201 members every day. Now that I know of my problem, and with more advance planning, I should be able to hunt lots more often in 2010.
I refuse to let this situation get me down.
