I read a bit of their story
Impressive kids to be sure.
and if they were around today would probably have their own reality TV show.
I'm sure the parents and the boys loved the notoriety
But that's where the dangers lies.
Remember back in 2009, when those parents claimed their 6 year old son was carried off in a weather balloon?
Latest balloon boy story
It had all been a hoax to get the family a spot on a reality TV show, the boy was never in the balloon in the first place.
people will do silly dangerous stuff for fame and fortune.
This is not 1910 and there's not a snowballs chance in hell I'd let my kids do it. and I'm that kind of dad who takes my daughter rock climbing
and whitewater rafting.
