Today I am switching gears a bit and throwing the spotlight to my Omnigames team mate and fellow adventure Junkie Jon Bausman who is goin to talk about one of his outdoor heroes and how that relates to his experience in the games. Take it away Jon. – Patrick
If I could meet one celebrity, hands down it’d be Edward Michael Grylls, also known as Bear Grylls. If you’re not familiar with the former host of Man vs. Wild and several outdoor survival shows, here are a couple facts to give you some perspective.
- In 1998, at age 23 he became the youngest person to reach the tip of Mount Everest (that record has since been broken).
- A year before climbing Everest, Grylls broke his back in three places in a free-fall parachuting accident….and he still climbed Everest!
- He served with the British Special Air Service.
- He has a black belt in karate.
