    I love the stories of the 'Old West', and I would love to be able to explore that era of 'Manifest Destiny': the whole period of exploring and 'conquering' the American Frontier, including the Gold Rush. I'll be honest, games like Red Dead Redemption 1 & 2 and Western movies give wonderful insight into both the beauty and the ugliness of those periods, but to actually see it and live it... If I had a time machine, that's where you'd find me.

    The Time Of The Dinosaurs!

    I forget the names of the eras - the most interesting one...

    I would go back in history and collect all the rare lego sets then sell them and make my fortune. Also win the lottery about 5 times and invest in Apple and Google.

    I'd quite like to go back to the 80s, but take some modern technology with me like a mobile phone, tablet, laptop, etc. and amaze the locals with the touchscreen technology, digital camera, games, and so on.

    A few hours later, I would then eventually realise that none of it's very useful without the world wide web or USB charging ports :(

    Ancient Egypt in their apex would be amazing to see. Also the ancient middle-eastern empires at their peak such as Babylon, Assyria, Israel etc. would be absolutely fascinating to experience.

    Thanks for hosting!

    Ooh! I'd love to go back to the Roman period and see them try and grapple with democracy/autocracy. Lots of good intentions by some I think and be interesting to study up close.

    Also want to go back to Elizabethan England to see how many plays and sonnets Shakespeare actually wrote.

    I'd also like to see Charles Vane (blame Black Sails )

    Egyptian pyramid building is one of those mysteries I'd also like to see solved.

    Thanks for hosting and have a great Thanksgiving.

    When did the Flintstones exist again? 

    Over the last several years, I've developed a fairly intense interest in the Knights Templar. I've love to experience any portion of their history and see the inner workings of that incredible organization. 

    Hopefully I've made the cut!

    I would want to go back and see Led Zeppelin at the MSG, and to see King Tut, and be an observer during his reign and sad demise.  Thanks for  hosting!

    I believe I am too late for the drawing, but I would love to go back to the 60's, 70's, and 80's to experience the evolution of the Indianapolis 500 prior to the split. Bonus would be getting to watch the 24 Hours of Le Mans evolve as well.

    Lucky number 21!  How can I lose?  I shouldn’t feel guilty for double posting since the list is set, right?   :-)

    When did the Flintstones exist again? 
    I’ve heard that they’re the modern Stone Age family, and that they’re a page right out of history...
    Hopefully I've made the cut!
    You squeezed under that gate like Indiana Jones... did you grab your hat though?

    I think you mean “The Land Before Time”... or perhaps that time Homer caused an extinction event by sneezing on the T. Rex...

    So it looks like I will have to participate 59 times before I win... that’s how math works, right? :-). Good job @BrickByBrick and thanks again @SumoLego... Happy Turkey Day also!

    The probability of participating 59 times but never winning anything is, surprisingly, more than 1/3!

    Unless you get in early and participate 59 times in the same draw of course. So if anyone sees KungFuKenny2 and his friends KungFuKenny3..59 entering, you know what is going on.
