Who Wants To Jump Off A Bridge With Me?
Nearly everyone of us has, at one point or another during our defiant youthful years, had a parent ask, “so, if all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you, too?” Well, regardless of your current age, here’s your chance to reply, “why yes, mom . . . yes I would!”
Three and a half weeks from today (Monday, June 6th), while he’s in the area for the World Domination Summit, Calgary-based buddy Matt Bailey and I are leading a group of daredevils like yourself on a leap off the highest legal bungee bridge in the United States! [only 2 hours from Salem (let’s carpool!) / 1 hour from Portland]
This is something I’ve been wanting to check off my own bucket list for quite some time now, and I can’t think of a better way to do it than with several other friends! I know, I know . . . deep down you really want to cut loose, get crazy and do it but, only fifteen seconds into reading this post, you’ve already come up with an excuse or two why you can’t.
- It’s on a Monday? Darn- I would, but I can’t get off work.
- Ooh, $107 is a bit much.
- I’m scared of heights.
- I’m too old for that craziness now.
- Maybe later, when I have more time to think about it and plan/prepare.
While they may seem like legitimate reasons, those excuses are still . . . um, er . . . excuses. Are they similar to the “logic” that’s actually kept you from seeking out other adventures that you’ve only vicariously experienced through other people? The same self-speak that’s kept you from accomplishing other goals in life? If so, you owe it to yourself to get off your butt right now, follow the two ridiculously easy steps below to get registered and come along! I guarantee great camaraderie, an exhilarating thrill and quite possibly, a life changing experience.
Come the evening of June 6th, some of us will be sharing laughs, amazing photographs and incredible stories about doing the highest bungee jump in the country. At the same time, others of us will still be sitting on the couch [again], flipping channels on the tube [again], bored [again].
You can watch the waves, ride the waves, or make the waves . . . it’s your call.
You in? Here’s everything you need to know and do:

** Not in the Washington/Oregon area? Wherever you are, plan your own local bungee group experience! Or take a gang skydiving (oh yeah, I’m doing that with Joel Runyon and 40+ others on June 3rd, as well!). Or ziplining. Paragliding. White water rafting. If you do, keep me posted about it and I’ll help spread the word!
