#WebExtra: WATCH Teens Audition for Mailboat Jumpers


Getting out of bed to work out is tough but what if the bed were right next to the gym? Hilton Hotel is offering rooms at $45 more per night for the “Five Feet to Fitness” room. The equipment includes sandbags, bosu ball, foam roller, t-r-x  and a screen with on-demand instructional videos and routines. Would you pay extra for this?

It’s sound advice for most people to avoid jumping on or off a moving boat. But for some teens it’s the biggest part of their job description. Watch the video as they are literally jumping at the chance to make special deliveries as mailboat jumpers. Dozens of  kids try out for  one of six coveted jumper spots. Mail jumpers make deliveries to 75 homes every day during the summer.  The mail boat also offers tours for spectators who just want a front row seat to the action.
