Saturday morning Feb. 25, NBC aired (after “It’s Academic”) the adventurous “Journey with Dylan Dreyer” (part of “The More You Know”), 30 minutes, exploring daredevils, in an episode called “Adrenaline Rush”.
Dreyer said that men with lower levels of certain brain hormones take more risks.
There was some extreme ski jumping in Norway, and then skydiving, but the main attraction was an experiment with a balloon and wind sails imagined in the 15th Century by gay inventor Leonardo Da Vinci. It appeared to be carried out in the high desert in California near US 395.
The local LGBT outdoor group “Adventuring” in Washington DC used to do hot air ballooning (has to be very early in morning) and actual parachute training ($160 a session back in the early 1990s).
