    Just like it says, what would you do?

    I have my own idea. Involves buying a heli-ski operation and setting up a charity. I will tell the entire plan later.

     That is pretty sick.

    My plan like I said was to have a place in the BC interior. Buy or invest in a heli-ski operation. Help out my family; make sure they are all taken care of. Smoke the best herb. Have a place on a sandy tropical beach. Part of the plan was to also meet Brittney Murphy and bring her with me. Get her a great rack. That won't be happening. I'll need to pick another half baked tight little blonde hot peice of ass. (RIP BM) (Don't ask why Brittney Murphy, it was just something about her) Start a charity or two. Definately one for under-privilaged kids that can't afford sports equipment. I would set myself up mice but not crazy extrazagent.

    I play the lottery and try not to think about these things or I would die of anticipation waiting for the drawing then die again after I learned I won jack-shit.

    What if you won the lottery? (We're talking about the BIG win)   

     i would want to own and run some type of business, but i'm always torn as to what. im usually lean toward bar in some vacation spot, be it the mountains or the beach. i would hire fantastic people and tell them all i want is to break even since i would really just want the business so i'd have something to do. i really feel like traveling and partying your life away would get old... but i would buy modest houses, but like 5 of them. id also set up my family for life and everyone that i consider a friend would get a new car. i've also thought about the fairest way to do that would be they get a brand new version of whatever they drive. i can't buy one friend a benz then another a dodge neon, but i can't buy them all one or the other either...

     I would do the whole skateboard, surf, and snowboard all in one day. but then do it everyday. Wake up bright and early to catch some waves, link pow turns all afternoon, mini ramp sessions all night. life would be gooooood.

    so if we're talking stupid big like 25 million:

    there are two friends of mine who i'd give a million each, about 4 or 5 other people would get 250K, another dozen or so would get something

    probably spend a million on the 'rents. well my mom anyway, my dad can go fuck himself.

    spend another 5 million or so houses/cars/toys

    i would set up 3 funds, 1 million each with semi aggressive investing, and the capital gains would be donated to the respective charities each year

    and i would take shits on the desks of branch managers of several banks

    and i would sue david suzuki and al gore for their ridiculous fear mongering. the only people that would win are the lawyers but hey, it would be fun.

    if were talking millions....

    new subaru outback.. only thing id do to it is anything i could do in order to make it as fuel efficient as possible.

    modest house in juneau. nothing huge or fancy, just basic and comfortable, with a water view next to the woods. probably as close to the bridge as i could get (on the douglas island side) without being in a normal neighborhood (ive never liked living in neighborhoods). id pick that location because i like douglas, but it would be nice to be very close to stores for food and things, rather than 6 miles from anything like that. its not bad, but it adds up quick.

    second small house for rent on the same property, but not in sight of my house.

    and i think i would pay for/help my dad to finish up his house remodel that hes doing right now, and buy him a new toyota pickup. might also take care of anything he needs done as far as his boat goes.

    i would also pay for/help my mom with her remodel as well. they have a house with a 2 car garage on one end and above that is their master bedroom/bath.. theyre separating it into two apartments i guess.. the two story section is one part, and the rest of the house (the one story part) is another. either that, or i would do the same for their new house in haines that theyre building. i think i would also send her and my step dad on a trip of their choice. something with some awesome nature.

    anything that was left, id invest/save.

    depends on what the big win is. i view that as like 100m or more, since uncle sam likes to take a bite

    make my mom retire. retire myself. help out family.
    buy some land near a mountain tbd (for shred & climb). design & build a house to my specs
    get a place somewhere tropical and isolated too
    buy a few (4-5) cars
    donate a lot annually & volunteer my time to charitable causes
    and spend my time exploring the world

    Charity work and careful investing, you have to be really careful with stuff like this, it can get away from you and fuck your life up real bad. Google Jack Whittaker. That said there are a couple of people I would put contracts out on, no joke.

    one thing is sure, I'd rather have 5 200K cars than just one priced at a million. But if the BIG is BIG enough, I'd get a Zonda.

    Good choice on the location. We went there every year for a couple of weeks in August when I was growing up.

    My wife and I have discussed this from time to time. Just idle dreaming.
    Having kids, we would try not to change our lifestyle all that much. We would not want them to grow up to be entitled, arrogant, spoiled, slacker drug addicts.

    Most of the money would be spread out to family and close friends. Local churches, food pantries, and YMCAs would also get a big chunk.

    Our big expenditure would prolly be to buy a slopeside condo.
    We would keep enough to pay for kids' college.
    We would invest about 2 mil with the idea that the interest could fund vacations and donations to charities.
    We would not move out of our house. We are in a great neighborhood for raising the kids.
    I would not quit my job as that would set a very poor example for the kids. I enjoy what I do, so I don't think I would change, at least not for a while, like when the boys have moved out.

    We would probably set up funds for the kids, but would not let them touch the money until they were in their 30's or so.

    Boring I know, but there I am.
