Unfit Death for Extreme Bucket List Author

The co-author of "100 Things to Do Before You Die" died at the age of 47 after hitting his head in a fall at his home.

It was a tough way to go for a man who wrote about running with the bulls in Pamplona and "land diving" on the Island of Vanuatu.

One thing family members were able to say was that Dave Freeman lived his life the way he wanted to live it. The books reads,

"This life is a short journey. How can you make sure you fill it with the most fun and that you visit all the coolest places on earth before you pack those bags for the very last time?"

A Yahoo article about Freeman's death mentions that he inspired other like-minded books. My favorite is definitely "100 Things Project Managers Should Do Before They Die." My life will be a major disappointment if I hit my head before increasing market share by 50%.
