Check out Megumi's Storytelling and Hypotherapy web sites, my dad Bill Hoover's web site and our New Year Letters from 1997/8, 1996/7 and 1995/6. If you're interested, you can read our New Year Letter, 1992/3, which describes our epic two month trip from Tokyo to California via the Trans-Siberian railway.

Do you see Beau in any of these frames?

MPEG video: Megumi bungee jumping in New Zealand (1990)  [1.34M/386 frames]

This is a 145' ankle jump from a bridge near Queenstown. It's really a shame that the audio track isn't included here. You can hear Megumi's scream, "I Love It!!!!" echoing through the canyon on the video.

MPEG video: Nathan bungee jumping in California (1990)  [322K/203 frames]

This is a 100' chest harness jump with 2 flips from a hot-air balloon at approx 150' near Tracy. The wings didn't give any extra lift at all...

More MPEGs coming someday: my 300' balloon bungee jump, Megumi skydiving, and who knows what else!
