I tell ya - cliff jumping in the Canadian Rockies is a must!
How did you come to meet & interview Katie Couric?! That's really cool!
Have you done it, Natalie? I'd like to see a video, por favor.
Caryn,I actually did it for a journalism class in college. Some classmates and I waited outside while the "Today Show" was taping and when she and Matt Lauer came outside during a commercial, I asked if I could interview her and she agreed. The whole video can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ca-KCAcgy4YCheers!
I think the book sounds like a great read though I'm imagining I'll only ever get like 2% or something done if I set the challenge. Have you sat down to count how many things you've checked off yet?
Corey,I have. It's fun: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_SJMkLomBWn0/S-I5X8HGOmI/AAAAAAAABAk/BL7dcU5vuo8/s1600/_MG_2.jpgAlso, canyoning. Like cliffjumping, but with waterfalls. Photos & video here: http://www.mommybyday.com/2010/05/adrenaline-rush.htmlIf you're ever in my neighbourhood in the summer, I'd be more than happy to take you jumping. =)
M,Here's the version of "2,001 Things..." that I have if you're interested in picking up a copy: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/2001-Things-to-Do-Before-You-Die/Dane-Sherwood/e/9780760765272Although I haven't actually counted all of the things I've done, I do know that I'm gonna need to live quite a bit longer to make a meaningful dent.
Natalie,If I'm ever in your neck of the woods, I will definitely take you up on that offer!Also, that picture is incredible! How high up are you?
Corey - Thanks! That was 25-ish feet, I think. I've jumped it at a few different water-levels, so it can be anywhere between 20 & 30ft. (It's the Athabasca Falls canyon in Jasper National Park. =)The best photo is just before I jumped... =) http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_SJMkLomBWn0/S-I5FoBA2iI/AAAAAAAABAc/o--RmLqgu2M/s1600/_MG_2247.jpg
You need to do cliff jumping for sure!! I did it a few years back from 30 or 40 feet up and it was a HUGE rush!
Natalie,My family went rafting on spring break when I was in high school and I tried to impress my fellow rafters by doing a front flip off of a jump rock 30 feet above the water. Needless to say, I over-rotated and the rafting company got the whole thing on film.Next time, I'm goin' feet first...
Brian,Was this in Michigan? If so, put in on our list for next summer! Or better yet, after Kelly's wedding reception!
I was so nervous when you brought out those clippers!
I thought you dug guys with short hair, Linds.
