I think Dave Freeman, author of “100 Things to Do Before You Die” has died at 47 from a fall. Freeman found the meaning of life and I’m sorry to hear about his passing.
From his LA Times obituary (Please click the link and read the entire obituary):
Together, the authors had visited almost every site in the book, which included the familiar (the Academy Awards ceremony, the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain) as well as the more exotic (the National Hollerin’ Contest in North Carolina, Australia’s Nude Night Surfing contest).
One of Freeman’s favorite lesser-known events was “land-diving on the tiny island in the Pacific called Vanuatu. . . . Tribesmen climb up homemade towers . . . and it’s sort of like the original bungee-jumping,” he said on National Public Radio in 2001.
