Block Party

Tomorrow starts with a bang as we head down to see Gary Siu ( at 5385 Lane St, Burnaby/Vancouver to MC a block party and rock concert. That means knocking off number 23 - throw a block party and number 30 - learn an instrument, as a team of local drummers are booked to teach us how to rock shimmy shimmy. If you're in the area, come join us or check out for more info on the event.

Six O'Clock

The good people at Global brought us down to their Vancouver studio to 'open the six o'clock news' and officially cross off our list leader. With cameras rolling we discussed the days top news stories and challenged Bill and Pamela at CTV for the most comprehensive news coverage in the province. Stay tuned for footage of the story.

Catching something and eating it was something that was very important to Dave. Everywhere we went he tried to pull us over and stop so he could try to catch a fish. When we finally arrived to Hedley, Dave had his chance to get in the water and try his hand at nabbing a trout. As the sun slower lowered, we began to worry that he might not get a bite. As it turned out, no fish were caught. Dave did learn enough from some local 8 year olds that he might return there someday to hook himself some dinner, but until that day comes, we'll have to wait to cross #44 off the list.

Met a great guy yesterday who's list included:

- Seadooing,
- Go-karting,
- and finishing his tattoos.

Needless to say it was a very fun day. Thanks Jesse.

#2: Lead a Parade

Being in the Pentiction parade was one of the coolest experiences to date. Whether Longboarding alongside, backfliping off the RV or jumping in the lake along the way; being in this parade was amazing and not hard to organize. Think about it for next year, Penticiton's not going anywhere.

Trucks and Chicken Wings

On Friday we got an email from Brent and he said that he needed our help. We went to see him and he told us a story of a troubled past and life on the streets. Two years ago, Brent pulled himself out of this life and started 2 business'. His dream is to raise enough money to build a half way ranch for individuals like himself who are searching for more. He began a new and used shop in Kelowna called "Consecutive Cycles" on Rutlin st. and a Landscaping operation, both of which relyed on his truck. Brent had just recently lost his truck along with the ability to carry on his 2 business'. Touched by his story, we asked him how we could help. With no mention of the truck, he replied, "I have always wanted to buy 200 chicken wings and take them down to the Friendship Centre in Kelowna". We had to find this guy a truck.

Walking onto a second hand car lot, we saw a perfect truck for $2100. We explained our story to Ed at Okanagan Motors, and offered him some money for the truck. "I believe everyone deserves a break", Ed said. He gave us the truck for $480.

The look on Brent's face when we pulled up in the truck and the reaction that ensued was the most rewarding feeling any of us have ever had. Thanks Brent.

We couldn't find chicken wings, so next best thing to the friendship centre.

#20 - Play a song on the radio.
I guess that means we can cross it off the list.

Went on CBC radio this morning. The call came at 6 am. Let's just say we weren't totally prepared... Dave raps -

Also made 'The Province' with Lord Stanley:

Also had a ribbon cutting ceremony with the mayor of Kelowna/planted a tree/became honorary members of office. Pics below.

Wowza! Crazytimes are following us everywhere. The Stanley Cup finds us in Kamloops and we welcome it with open arms. Needless to say, we all get along great. Maybe a fifth member?
No. More importantly, we find two people that have always wanted to meet Stanley, but due to overwhelming turnout, couldn't. With some hard work and a little ingenuity, we arrange a one on one meeting with Lord Stanley, Mark Recci and two deserving fans.
The tour continues...

lots happening in the first five days. meeting people everywhere we go and hearing stories about life and where to take it.

The Buried Life Tour - first days

Whats up everyone!
We have begun our whirlwind tour across b.c. and it has been nothing less than a whirwind. We will have pictures up in the near future, but for now, here are a few highlights:

-Kicked a field goal with Lui Passaglia yesterday at B.C. Place before the Lions played the Eskimos; found out what Lui wants to do before he dies. The Buried Life Squad hooked up for a touchdown pass which included a Jerry McGuire celebration dance.

-Stopped 4 guys on East Hastings in Vancouver, gave them all tickets to Rob Zombie and moshed with them in the front row.

-Interviewed a man who has looked death straight in the eye, didn't blink, cleared his throat, and then talked to us about how his "List" has changed.

-Sent 'Scott' from 'Victoria', a guy who has always dreamed of flying, on a date with a parachute and 10,000 feet of freefalling bliss!

-Started a 30,000 people wave at B.C. Place and may or may not have been booed in the process.

-Young Diego dreamed to be a Knight, and he is now Sir Diego, Knight of the Causeway.

-Chatted with Kiprios of Sweatshop Union and got a taste of "100 things to do before you die" as a freestyle.

-check the successful completion of 'List item #23: Make the front page of the newspaper' at:

-Have talked with 23 people, helped 11, so far about what they have always dreamed of doing and what it means to live a buried life.

The Tour continues...!!

Tour Begins!

Media everywhere, tourists and visitors from around the globe and the whole scene is focused on us. The Knight costume blew people away and Ben had a touching moment with a little kid name Diego, whose dream, funnily enough, was to meet a knight and get knighted.

Sir Diego - changing the world one step at a time.
