@skunked and I had an interesting conversation awhile back.

I want to be cremated and chucked off a ridge in Moab into the Colorado river.
how would you want your funeral to go?

I have a standing order with my wife....

Bury me, cheap.
No open casket.
Don't drag it out, just quick service and straight into the ground.
Instead of a wake or drawn out service, try get my/our friends together a few weeks later for a bbq/picnic and show old wheeling videos.

Now that I read that, it seems like I've spent too much time thinking about it.

I want to die on Mars.
Preferrably wheeling my Blazer on the slopes of Olympus Mons or inside Valles Marineris.. with beer.
Lots of beer.
And my guns.

Cremation and a party is the only direction I’ve told my family.

@Bent77 no Viking funeral?

It’s a great idea, but it wasn’t my idea first. Mrs Bent unceremoniously declined my request anyway

I want to be cremated, then a big ass party to remember all the stupid yet funny shit I've done!! lol

No tears, wailing, boo hooing and what not. Except the Grandbabies, they can cry. I want the happy times remembered.

Willie has a good idea..
Willie Nelson: Roll Me Up & Smoke Me When I Die - AXS TV - YouTube

A friend once told me he thought he'd want to be put in his antique 50 Chevy and have it crushed .like in the Bond movie "Goldfinger"...and be buried in it...but he's dead now,died in '07,and had a "ordinary" funeral and casket,and he decided to sell the car about a year before he passed..

Another guy I know who was a commercial fisherman said "Just put me in a woodchipper,50 miles out to sea,and say "See ya later Chum"..:eek:..don't know if he is still alive today,lost touch with him long ago..

And she would probably go to jail
Actually she would be supposed to ride the ship out with his body and go down with it. But she surely wouldn't drown. She would burn to death. Probably

Edit: I think they only did that with chieftains. Is Bent a chieftain?

I never really though about the whole thing and what I'd want to happen...I always just figured I'd die in my truck and that's all I really wanna take with me. Yes I'd like to take my truck with me..Even if that means digging a big enough hole for the both of us (me and my truck).

I don't want anyone to make a big deal about me because truth is, if people can't remember me and spend time with me while I'm here then why make time to remember me when I'm dead. Simple as that. Just dig a hole and put me in it.

Cremated and spread my ashes where my dad is, pull the family boat behind the truck and have a beer. I don't imagine living passed 60 so I'm half way there.

Simple yet effective. Pass the truck on to another generation hopefully my future son, if not my brothers son will do the trick.
