Conditions of Use
Bridge jumping is an excellent pastime for the extreme. This awesome hobby involves jumping off of bridges (duh), but not off of bridges that are so high that is will kill you. For example, you would not jump off of the Golden Gate Bridge in California, because it would kill you to death. A good bridge to jump off would be Rye Harbor Bridge.
The first time I ever went bridge jumping was in the summer of fourth grade. On the last day of summer before fifth grade, one of my friends called me up and wanted to know if I wanted to go bridge jumping with him, and some friends. I thought “Why not? It sounds fun.”, so I quickly agreed. Because it was my first time, we went to Rye harbor Bridge, and we jumped off of it 20 times. This was one of the most awesome experiences I have ever had. I began going bridge jumping more and more.
The highest bridge that I have ever jumped off of was Sagamore Bridge, or “The singing Bridge”, connecting Portsmouth with downtown Portsmouth. This bridge does not appear high, until you are about to jump. One you are there, you begin having second thoughts about jumping. I still jumped once, and it was totally worth it.
All in all, bridge jumping is a super fun thing to do for those who like swimming, and scaring themselves with the height.
