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...


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


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.
