I have been picking night crawlers at night all my life. Nothing makes my backache as much as bending over and trying to grab a night crawler before it zips back into its hole!

The Bucket List, identities, promotes and brings business to individual marinas, restaurants, tourist venues, farms, and other locations specifically! It provides a vehicle, ‘ THE BUCKET LIST ” that allows our readership a direction to spend a day, weekend or month throughout the year as your leisure time should be spent, enjoying the magnificent Hudson River, Lake George and other lakes in the Catskill and Adirondacks to their fullest.
