Today I was going through a bunch of old pictures, trying to find a baby picture to give to someone at my work for a baby picture mystery game we’re playing, and I came across my favourite picture from when I was jumping on our old trampoline.
The picture is from a web cam video recording that I took while my brother Tom was “double jumping” me. The trick is to have 1 person jump lightly right before you’re about to land to tighten up the trampoline. The result is that it launches you really high up in the air.
For context, the guy standing at the bottom right side of the picture is my buddy Greg who is 6 foot 7 and 3/4. This was probably the highest I had ever jumped on the trampoline, and it was extremely scary if you don’t go up straight, because you could end up landing on the edge of the trampoline or even worse, on the hard ground.
