It’s difficult to imagine anyone has not seen this video. It’s been everywhere the last few days, even local Denver news broadcasts. Still, I wanted to preserve and share it.

First viewing for me. Loved every minute of it. Life should be full of fun, and this guy seems dedicated to pursuing the good times as long as possible. A lesson here for all of us.
Yep, hope I can remember this in the future.
