How it Works

The Out Living it Project is all about creating stoke and embracing a lifestyle of outdoor adventure and connection! When you register your Out Living It Project, you gain access to adventure planning resources like training plans, gear discounts, vetted outfitters, lodging info and other exclusive FD deals. So, take out living it into your own hands by planning an adventure and registering it with First Descents.

With OLIP, you can dream big or start small – it’s up to you! While you spearhead the planning, we’ll support you to make the process smooth, safe and fun. All you have to do is register your adventure and then check out our resources to get the process started.
