I’m jumping off a bridge in Portland this July before a certain unrelated conference on world domination. Want to come with me? I’m taking 30 people max. Sign up below.
What? You want details before jumping off a bridge to your very likely, but not-so–very-likely-death?
Fine. Here you go.
The 2nd annual completed unrelated and entirely unofficial WDS 2012 Plummet at the Summit adventure.
July 6th, 2012 – 10am. Outside Portland, Oregon.
You + up to 29 other people
Why 29 other people? Because adventures are approximately 100x more fun with other people. Sure you can go bungee jumping by yourself, but you can’t always go bungee jumping with 29 other awesome people who you’ve just met.
Here’s the deal. Cost is $160 for 2 jumps. Sign up here.
Why am I doing this?
Here’s the backstory. Last year I told people I was going skydiving, and ended up taking 40 people jumping with me. It was a ton of fun, a little bit crazy and 40 people did something they had been wanting to do their entire life. I figured it was such a good time for everyone involved – why not do it again?
This year, we’re taking a slightly smaller group of 30 people to jump off of a bridge, have the experience of a lifetime and cross something off your impossible list.
What’s included in the ticket price.
- 2 Bungee Jumps and possible death
- 1 special edition
- Experience of a lifetime (included free of charge)
What’s not included:
- Photos (Bring $20 cash if you want 25-50 high quality videos of you jumping)
We will all meet together before caravanning to the jump zone, and we’ll do our best to get everyone carpooled up, but we’re not guaranteeing you a ride (Hint: if you got a car, bring it – you’ll need it!). If you’re going to a certain completely unrelated Portland conference later that evening, don’t worry you’ll be back in plenty of time for the opening ceremonies.
What shirt do I get?
The shirt is a special edition of the impossible shirt. It’s a special edition fo the the trademarked impossible shirt on the front and the ridiculously awesome Plummet at the Summit on the back thanks to Emily Belyea. Thanks Em! Unlike the other impossible shirts – you can’t buy this shirt – you have to jump to experience it.
Skydiving is fun, but you’re strapped to a tandem instructor for the experience and they’re the ones that jump, pull the chute and steer your down to the ground. You choose to go up in the plane, but you don’t choose to jump out of it. Bungee is different.
Bungee is all about choice. You don’t have an instructor jumping out of the plane for you with you attached for the ride. You’re the one standing on the ledge, looking down (even though they tell you not to), and you’re the one that gets to choose to either leap off or crawl back over the railing. You have to decide to jump for yourself.
Some people do it. Some people don’t. But you get to choose.
