Ryan George, Scared to Life

Age has tamed me. I used to be the first to volunteer when my group of friends came up with an insane idea for one of us to try. It is no wonder I am still alive after all the stunts I tried in my younger years.

I still enjoy the thrill of an insane hike along craggy peaks in a National Park or rock climbing to heights, but I always check my surroundings for the safest and smartest way to go about it.

But what if your job was to do insane feats? We sat down with adrenaline junkie Ryan George, who does bungee jumping, wing walking, and ice-climbing all in a day’s work. Ryan is a professional adventurer and the author of “Scared to Life.”

“People tell me all the time that they couldn’t hang glide or bungee jump or skydive because they would be ‘too scared.’ I’m not sure where the line is between appropriately scared and too scared, but life gets better when we’re at least a little scared,” said Ryan on the CBF Podcast Conversation.
