My Bucket List Adventures

A bit of a daredevil in my younger days, I was blessed to check some fun and memorable items off my bucket list.

While upside down, my friend yelled into my headphones, “Are you okay?” All I could say in response was, “Whooooo...

“If you find yourself wondering if you can go on, remember how much you’ve accomplished. Then raise your head high and be proud. YOU GOT THIS!”
JD Crighton

“He resolved for Detective Geyer to undertake a careful and methodical search for the blunder which a criminal always makes between the inceptions and consummation of his crime.”
J.D. Crighton, Detective in the White City: The Real Story of Frank Geyer

“You have the power to motivate and inspire. Let your enthusiasm shine through”
JD Crighton

“He resolved for Detective Geyer to undertake a careful and methodical search for the blunder which a criminal always makes between the inceptions and consummation of his crime.”
J.D. Crighton, Detective in the White City: The Real Story of Frank Geyer

“While Geyer was on the German steamship to Rio de Janeiro, his co-workers struggled to cope with intense emotions. The day after forty-five miners died in the Roslyn, Washington, explosion, Philadelphia suffered a tragedy of their own—one that would rock City Hall and its police force to its core.”

“Somewhere in the midst of a great story was a profound untruth so dark, that if true, would have wiped the direct line of Detective Frank Geyer’s future generations of family off the face of the earth.”
J.D. Crighton, Detective in the White City: The Real Story of Frank Geyer
