Best Of Buck: First Anniversary Edition

It has been one year this month since I started The Buck List and I decided to put together what I consider to be ten of my best posts from the last year. If I was to assemble this list on another day it would be different, so I am just going with this one. I wrote a post giving some background on myself, if interested. From oldest to newest, here are my picks.
