Today is Friday, and that means a special update about ANYTHING Big Mike related!

 

 

Everyone knows Big Mike LOVES to travel and ride roller coasters during the Summer, and everyone knows that Big Mike LOVES to see all the Broadway shows in the Winter, but what is the one other thing that Big Mike LOVES to do other than spend all his time with his wondeful and beautiful girlfriend Megan?????

 

It is to knock things off The Official Big Mike Top 50 Always Wanted To Do List!!!!

 

 

Big Mike started the Top 50 Always Wanted To Do List 3 full years ago, and has been checking them off and replacing them so the list is still full at 50 different things!

 

 

Today all The Valuable Big Mike Readers get to see the BRAND NEW FOR 2012 Big Mike Top 50 Always Wanted To Do List!!!!

 

 

Here is what is left for Big Mike to do this year and below that, ALL the Top 50 things that Big Mike has already done and checked off in the last 3 years!

 

 

This brings us to 25 updates in 2012 out of a goal of 200! We are 1/8 of the way there already!!! Big Mike could really crush that goal, but just like David Letterman and Jay Leno, they have to have a few weeks off to recoup and relax, and that is where Big Mike is after tonights episode!

 

 

The Big Mike Road Show 2012 will take a one week break and the timing is not coincedental with this episode......

 

..... Big Mike is going to try and take off at least one new thing off the Top 50, maybe two, possibly 3???

 

Now the fun part......... Can anyone guess which thing Big Mike is going to check off his Top 50 Always Wanted To Do List????

 

Post your guesses, or anything else you can recommend that Big Mike add to the list!!

 

 

Anyway, here is the New for 2012 list and everything that has been accomplished in the past 3 years!

 

 

Hope you enjoy and see you again with new updates in one week! (Click that link above for the 1st 25 episodes to keep you busy)

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Big Mike - you really live life to the full! It's so great that you've achieved so many of your dreams!

 

As for what you're up to this week... I think you'll join the mile high club as you fly over to LA, where you will hike up to the Hollywood sign. On the way down you will bump into the Fonz.

Wow, that's a lot of stuff. I may be boring some of your ideas doe things to do because they sound awesome.

 

 

But what I think your doing is visiting machu piccu, Rio for carnival, and possibly ending in new Orleans for maradi GRAS.

 

Whereever you are going, have a wonderful and safe trip.

Whenever you get to that NBC Studios Tour, let me just tell you that you are going to absolutely love it! My family took the tour this past summer and we had a blast. The tour guides are amazing, the studios are flooded with hidden wires/cameras, and the SNL studio is definitely a site I will never forget!

 

With that said, I have a feeling you're going to NYC to check off the ferris wheel, the NYC tour bus, and the NBC studio tour!

That's an awesome list and awesome list of things you've checked off! I have yet to make a list, but my list would have a lot of the same things! I've read about that backyard coaster, super intrigued to hear that you got to ride it!

 

You've definitely had a full life so far with more to come! What's your occupation that you manage to do all this? I just hope that I can make enough money in my career someday so that I could take trips all the time like this!

I've been sick and have just now caught up on last week's updates. I love flea markets! And Little Big Horn looks like an interesting place. Danny and I are big history geeks so battlefields and stuff like that fascinate us.

 

Hope you and Megan have a great time in Cancun!

Welcome back! Hope you got to relax!

 

Lock me in for 5 duckies. You're being tricky this time around. And I'm sure I'll regret my guesses later on, but this on was definitely interesting.

 

Boomers looks odd, like it's trying to be nice, but yet it still kind of has that skeevy feel to it.
