I just came across this amazing video of cliff jumping at Rick’s Cafe in Negril, Jamaica, and it brought back some wonderful memories of my visit there a couple years ago. No, I didn’t jump off the cliff, and if you watch the video you will see why. Everyone in this video is much younger and more athletic than me, and obviously a lot more daring as well. I remember hearing stories when we were there about a young lady who had recently jumped and landed less than ideally. The story went that she was in tremedous pain, having broken multiple bones, and it took a long time for an ambulance to arrive. Well, that was the story that was going around at the time anyway, and it was more than enough to make me a spectator rather than a jumper. But to my amazement, my very daring friend Jim (in his 50s) and his daughter Michelle (in her 20s) jumped and came away with little more than a couple bruises, not to mention bragging rights. So, with that background, you can see why this video caught my attention, not to mention the incredible videography, which I understand came in part from using a GoPro HD HERO2 Professional Wearable HD Camera.
