A year in the life...base jumping

This is just an amazing video. Not only is the jumping absolutely insane, but the filming is awesome!

Re: A year in the life...base jumping

Nice. Yousee how important a good pack job and body positioning is when the dude went into the falls. I've packed and jumped some sloppy pack jobs that opened off heading, but it nearly killed that guy. Alot thinner margin of error in base jumping.

Re: A year in the life...base jumping

Now THAT looks interesting. I suppose a bunch of boring regular jumps might be worth earning the experience to do BASE.

Nice vid

Re: A year in the life...base jumping

Awesome vid! Thanks for sharing that. And I thought [/I]I[I] had done something harrowing by bungee jumping.

Two possibilities:

1) Lack of brains
2) Avacado-sized do-dads

Cool vid
