3. Played in a band
4. Visited Hawaii

95. Seen the Alamo in person
96. Swam in the Great Salt Lake. (I have visited the GSL many times, more than I can count. Not only did I not swim in it. I will NEVER swim in it and I don't recommend anyone else does either. Have fun walking through those brine flies!)

98. Owned a cell phone
99. Been stung by a bee
100. Read an entire book in one day

Looks Like I have completed 50 of them - and there are 5 that I will never do - so 55 out of a hundred isn't bad!

Good job on the list. I'm trying to track down everyone who copied it from me to tell them I chopped off #11, bungee jumping.
