Borneo – I need to see orangutans in their native land...before they're all gone.
Yankton, SD – My dad actually went to college there. But his school went out of business years ago and is now a federal prison. It would be great to see and visit the town, although I'll skip trying to get over the fence onto the old campus.
Australia/New Zealand/Tasmania – More unique creature per inch than most other places on earth, and more politically stable than Madagascar. Win-win.
Acadia National Park – I have lived in Maine more than four years, which means I'm past due to get up there.
Santa Fe – During the annual American Indian Market, of course.
Anyplace my friend, musician Randy Granger, is playing – Randy's music means a lot to me. I want to see him in concert one of these days.
Oz – So what if it doesn't really exist?
Virunga National Park – The only politically unstable area I'd risk going to in order to see an endangered species (in this case, mountain gorillas).
India – I can't narrow down which part of the sub-continent I want to see, but one place on my list is the Gir National Forest, last home to the world's only remaining Asiatic lions. (Are you noticing a trend here?)
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico – I've already been there, but I'd like to go back.
Portland and Seattle – If just to check out their comics shops.
San Diego – Gotta visit that zoo.
Where else should I go? I've got cabin fever and need to plan some travel in my mind.
