Outside of his interests in travel and history writing and photography, Bruce has a bit of a sweet tooth for adventure. He skydived for 30 years, made more than 4500 skydives, and for a while did consulting work as a high-performance parachute designer and prototype tester for a major parachute manufacturer. He dabbled in BASE jumping too—he was the 54th person to jump the New River Gorge Bridge and the 101st person to jump the world's tallest waterfall—Angel Falls in Venezuela. In addition, he and co-driver Doug Davidson race their Mazda Miata in SCCA endurance road racing competitions (and have brought home a few trophies!). Other adventurous endeavors include scuba diving, kayaking, and paragliding.
