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

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.
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.
