Every Man Needs a Life List... Here's Mine

Updated: Nov 23, 2020

I have ADD. It's not what you think.

I have ADD.


It's not what you think.


It's Adventure Deficit Disorder.


And that's how I found myself climbing over the rail of a bridge wearing only a swimsuit and a parachute.


I could see my wife and five small children 500 ft below in a boat on the Snake River.

They looked like ants from that height.


It was one of those perfect summer mornings in Idaho.


But all I noticed was the gentle bouncing of the bridge as each car drove across.


My palms were sweating… like yours are right now while reading this. :)

My heart was pounding -- and for good reason!


I was standing on the 'wrong' side of the rail and was about to let go and fall.



What was I thinking?!


But I didn't want to look like a wuss to the base-jumping-stunt-men I was with...


So I counted...


3...2...1…


Then let go of the rail and felt the adrenaline of the free fall.


WHAT A RUSH!


Less than 4 seconds later, the parachute deployed.


I glided down and landed in the water 10 seconds? later.


My wife picked me up with the boat.


It was one of the coolest moments of my life.
