+1. I've been rejected once. That wasn't on my bucket list, but it's a start.
Attend the Northern California Homebrewers Festival.
Attend an AHA conference.
Brew a Belgian that's actually drinkable. (Spent my first summer as a homebrewer brewing undrinkable Belgians. Could probably do better now, several years later, but decided to work on the basics a while.)
Get my nerve up to enter a beer in a contest.
Publish an essay about homebrewing (in a magazine not primarily about beer or brewing).
Build an all-electric, pump-driven, mobile brewstand.

Upgrade from fly and batch sparging to a fully automatic RIM or HERM system.

Two that were on the list that I would like to do someday.

Go to the GABF.

Go to Yakima at the time of the harvest.

I've been very lucky in that I've managed to have things happen in my brewing hobby that I never expected would happen.  A Big Brew recipe, having my beer brewed commercially, being on the Governing Committee, having a brewing yeast named after me, and now I'll be attending Beer Camp next week.  If I could just make it to GABF one of these days, that would about do it for me.

Hey Denny, have fun at Beer Camp!  Fill us in when you can, or after. 

This should be at the top of any homebrewer's bucket list.

Say hello to everyone at SN for me.

Brewing with Brett. I am doing that this summer though so I suppose something I am not already doing would be to win a medal (any color) in a brew comp.

Currently working on:

1. Win BOS in our state homebrew competition with a wild ale. A LOT of time and effort goes into these brews, so I hope one will bare fruit in the future (other than just being delicious!).

2. Perfect my IPA recipe (although I don't know that I'll EVER be able to stop tweaking it)
