These dreams have taken him on a lifelong journey of adventure and exploration that covers six continents and five extreme sports. The paperback version contains twenty-six thrilling stories that include kayaking many of the world’s deepest canyons, climbing some classic desert spires, freestyle ski jumping, downhill ski racing, and western rodeo. The stories have been written in a style that is very entertaining and humorous as well as inspirational.

The author hopes that his book will inspire its readers to live their dreams, because this crazy planet is such an incredible place, and you might only live once.
