if you was going to travel atfer a big win, Where in the world would you go, and what would you do


here my input:

i just have basic idea of go to all the six flags, other theme parks that offer VIP stuff

for 1 day for like 1000 bucks in that range,

you can have your own Tour guide who does ever thing for you at the park

, who will just let you pass the lines at six flags!


then i so take some helicopter tour rides around big citys like new york,as they have tourist helicopter rides :D

as am trying out boardway shows, their and going to try out the must costly food places around, ones with views!


so am just intrested, also to get more ideas my self,

where and what you  do while traveling as a jackpot winner!

    I like American History so I would visit all the historical sites of the Civil War, Revolutionary War, the Old Wild West, Washington DC and much more.

        i always liked the idea of metal detecting for gold. a top quality detector costs in the range of $6k. a good 4wd camper prob another $50k

        sundry equip another $10k  then id hit some gold fields around Australia.

        you may laugh," WTF" you will say. "you already hit the jackpot."  but as i camp out for 6 months , walking around the bush seeing mother nature, learning some geology, my money will be back at home earning interest. and even if i dont get a sniff of a gold nugget ill walk away wealthier than when i went bush.  plus camping out without all the mod cons and contrivences  focuses you on whats important in life., and with that sort of money i think ill need constant reminders .

        and ill also need some quiet time to plan out my race track :P

            There would be too much work to do. Getting finances in line, buy my property, start on getting my house build MY way.

            Maybe have an escape house built in case the US economy crushes, maybe a nice duplicate house in New Zealand or Australia... At least I can spend winters there...

              I love to travel..so I would probably go alot of places.  However I have been kicking around doing a sort of Whiskey tour..  Going to several of my favorite distillaries...  Jack Daniel's in Lynchburg, TN  then up to Clermont, KY to see Jim Beam's....then to Loretto, KY to Maker's Mark.  That is if I can still see straight!  LOLPuke

                I would go on a nationwide food tour where I'll go to as many good restaurants I can in just about every state.

                I would visit Japan, Europe and other nice countries.

                  I'd take a season and see a game in every major league baseball stadium.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    I'd probably purchase a house on wheels and a sturdy wok and travel to every city in the state of TX visiting the Chamber of Commerce to learn about the city's history.

                    I would most definitely spend a lot of time in the coastal towns scarffing down mega loads of sea food.


                    Afterwards, I'd probably have to rent a flatbed tow truck to haul my hefty butt home. LOL

                      I'd spend the spring in Europe, starting with Great Britain/Ireland.  I'd spend the summer in a motorhome travelling the US, particularly the northern and/or mountainous parts that are a bit cooler in the summer.  I'd spend the fall following the Boise State Broncos on their games, I'd attend every one.  And I'd spend the winter in my motorhome exploring the states that are toasty that time of year.

                      After the first year I'd give up the motorhome and travel to Europe each spring (Germany/Austria/Poland etc. is next) and follow the Broncos each fall, flying rather than motorhoming.   Other than a week-long trip here and there to US destinations, I'd be enjoying my new home the rest of the year.

                        I would 'travel' on a small (100 foot) research vessel to the South Pacific, approximately 80 nautical miles northwest of Howland Island. That is where I believe Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, are located, along with the remains of her plane. From that point, I'd have to figure out a way to recover the wreckage.

                          I would love to see a total solar eclipse in real life. It's awe-inspiring to see the moon fit over the sun perfectly like a glove.

                          The only ones I've seen are in movies like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOvWioz4PoQ

                          Ofcourse a movie can never be anywhere as good the real thing.

                          The next total solar eclipse will happen in November 2012 over NE Australia and the South Pacific Ocean. If I miss this chance I'd have to wait about 3 years for another opportunity. If I won a big jackpot, I'd book a Papua New Guinea Cruise like this one here http://www.travelquesttours.com/NewGuinea2012Cruise/New_Guinea_2012_home.htm

                          The chance to explore Australia, Papua New Guinea and see a rare celestial event would be hard for me to pass up, if I had the cash.

                              There is this old couple here where I live that did that.  Big Braves fans that, when they retired, followed the team on road trips in a motorhome back in the 90s when Bravos were really good.  Went to every NL park with the Braves, and on off days went to the closest AL park for a game.  They also spent the entire spring training with them in Florida.  Mighty good stuff that.
