Jeff and Richard on the "King Swing" video!

-in celebration of getting married to Kristina this summer, my friend Richard and I went on the King Swing and thought we were going to perish as we wildly swung at 140km/hr off a bridge!  My brother Chris is filming, and you can hear the voices of Mark, and Marc telling the operator to dunk us in!
