Base jumping. I get it as I i used to jump myself...but out of planes, not buildings, bridges or cliffs. It's quite the adreniline rush.

But one thing I have learned over time is to never let someone (or yourself) film you doing something crazy. Bad things often ensue. It's almost like jinxing yourself.

"Hey Y'all! Watch this!"


It's a Vimeo vid so I can't post it but here's the link.

Thankfully...he survived. But WOW! That was crazy, wasn't it?

I think you're confusing a death wish with a life wish.

What foolishness. If I were this guy's insurance company I'd drop him immediately.

At least he had a parachute.. let me introduce you to free solo climbing with this video of Dan Osman.

Dan Osman died doing another extreme sport, rope jumping which involves jumping into canyons and such and swinging on a rope. Here's a video of that insanity:

Every sport has its risks.
I've yet to base, but, have plenty fun jumping from plane.

Jeb Corliss, well, now, I'd love to do this jump:


Wow.

Oh I'm all about adventure and I do realize that on my next trip to the fridge to get a beer, I may slip and bang my head and die. (Crap! I hope not...I had my mind set on that beer)

But sometimes we survive life's lessons. What we take away from them is how we grow. I will admit that I am a adreniline junkie, but with my bad back and constant low grade pain nowadays, I realize that I just can't do some things anymore.

See my sig, you'll know what I mean.

That looks fun as all get out. But I'm older now and all the Xtreme things I did as a youngun' are catching up to me.

I like to say that I was Xtreme before people started making money off of it. Crap...a little bit behind the power curve on that one.

But then again, I've had friends tell me that I'm the reason people can't have nice things anymore.

I'd love to do a HAHO jump with a wing suit, with oxygen and all.

Sadly, I'm past my prime.

There is a saying amongst those in the service...

The only thing that falls from the sky is Birdsnip and fools.

I used to be a dirtdart, hence a fool. But it was fun while I could do it.

And much more cuddly and soft...crap! you're a guy?! Yowza!

Please don't rip my arms off and beat me with them.

Nothing worse than a Texas Ape...they can get grumpy if you manage to piss them off. And that's not a good thing.

A long while back .. when I was much younger ... I used to skydive.
Got tangled once. Never had to pull my reserve shoot.
Just a handful of jumps, but they were memorable.
EXPENSIVE ... but memorable.

(It's so quiet up there! That has always stuck with me. The quiet )

It's great isn't it?

But I also did ten years in the 82d Airborne.

Jumping at 800AGL, 2AM, the sky filled with 800 or more people with a hundred pounds of crap strapped onto them and the air was filled with cries of "Slip away! Slip away!"

I'll admit that while it was fun, but it was scary at times. I've had to deploy my reserve twice, and at 800 feet...you don't have much time to make the decision. Yowza!
