The Buried Life

There is a new documentary that just aired its season finale last night called The Buried Life. It is a group of four (college-age) guys who got together and made a list of 100 things to do before they die and tour around North America in a big purple bus to cross off as many items on their list as possible. Anything from learn how to surf, all the way to play basketball with Obama. So far they have crossed 73 things off the list, and watching them accomplish six of them in the documentary was really cool.

But for every one thing they cross off on their list, they help a stranger accomplish something on theirs. It's really quite incredible, actually. They have reunited a father and son, helped a blind man get back on a horse after 21 years (before he became blind), and helped a ten-year-old girl get over her fear of heights.

Not only have they inspired me to start my own list, but it also has given me the motivation to do something incredible with my life. My list only extends to 42 so far, but I'm adding more and more every day, with full intent on crossing them off.

So now I'm asking you: what do you want to do before you die?

peace, love, and rockets.
