My calendar page for the U.S. tricentennial

Back in '91, I made plans to dive into the Great Red Spot of Jupiter on July 4, 2076. This is by far the most distant thing I have inked into my calendar, winning by an overwhelming margin of 64 years. While I've managed to remember the date despite the late-night-at-Hampshire-College environs in which this plan was hatched, I've completely forgotten who else swore this oath with me. Guess I'll see them there!

Thanks go out to autopope for reminding me of my interest in extreme orbital re-entry diving.

Hope the vehicle used by then is "Great Storm"-proof!

Vehicle? Not nearly extreme enough. Naked has always been the plan, but in a body that's durable, disposable, and able to relay the experience to my stay-at-home body.
At one point I believed this plan had been scotched by the sudden disappearance of the Great Red Spot - that Jovian weather patterns had changed and it just stopped cycloning. I think this was one of those things I came up with in a dream, but then forgot where the idea came from & had it left over in my head nevertheless.
