Getting High

"I'm learning to fly around the clouds
But what goes up must come down" - Tom Petty

Normally I write about what is going on with our family.  I figure that people reading this blog are here to catch up with us so I usually don't re-post content or links to other sites.  If someone wanted to read about what other people are doing, or the latest cool viral stuff on the internet, they would go look there instead of here.

But, sometimes I see something really neat and just feel like sharing.  I saw this video yesterday and thought it was awesome.  I noticed these guys are all pretty young... college-age guys.  I'm probably old enough now that either:
  •  I would be wise enough to think this is a bad idea
  • My body would complain because it isn't in good enough shape
  • The thought of my kids being father-less would discourage me
Part of me though, is still young enough to think that I would just say "what the heck!" and jump.

This video made me think of some other ones I've seen recently.  If you haven't seen them already, you should.


  1. Brad and I had that rope swing one. We were like, "These guys are CRAZY but I kinda want to try it."

  2. That last video is one of my favorites. I show it to my students every semester.

    The first video - I am dying to see their "...and I'm a MORMON" video because I'm pretty sure there are at least a few Mormons in that group.

  3. Ha ha! Tyson and his brother Donny know the guy that made that first video with the rope swing. They both rappelled down that arch this last January, but I think they're going to try the rope swing next time ;)--Cambria

  4. we have a friend who has done the rope swing as well...crazy.
