People do different things to welcome the New Year. In Vancouver, thousands take to the English Bay beach for the New Year Polar Bear Swim. I never did that because I can never wake up in time for it.
Another thing I won’t be doing is what Robbie Maddison did to welcome 2008. Robbie took his motorcycle and jumped it 322 feet. That’s longer than a football field. And if that wasn’t crazy enough, he did it twice! I guess he felt the first time wasn’t scary enough. Robbie must subscribe to the old saying, “You only truly live when you’re know you’re about to die.”
