Live Your List Project

What is the Live Your List Project?

We are checking off bucket list items every day for the rest of 2017! We started the project on October 6th, 2017, when we helped our friend, Brett Mayo, check off his bucket list item of trying every deep fried dessert at a fair! (It was as delicious as it sounds).

Follow Ryan on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, to see pictures and videos of each day’s bucket list item! You’ll also be able to catch a recap here.

Have a bucket list item we can help you with? Let us know!
