I want to join in on the Mexico roadtrip! As for Seattle, I'll be in that area the first full week in August. I don't know about ID, but illegal fireworks are SUPER easy to get in WA on Indian reservations. 28, 30, 32, 33, 38, and 39 sound epically fun. Yep, You're going to have a blast this summer. Makes me want to make my own sucket list.

I'll be in Seattle periodically, too. I can show you around if I'm around.

The Shakespeare Festival is the way to go to see the Shakespeare plays in Cedar City--awesome! I love your list immensely, and I hope you get a chance to do several of them!
