Ya well I wouldn't say he BASE jumped 7200 feet. More like he base jumped 500 feet and parasailed the rest of the peak. Still wicked cool. Wish I had that fearlessness of death.

True, true. The freefall wasn't that far.

I watched a guy in one of those flightsuits throw himself off the edge of Fish River Canyon in Namibia. A Frenchman. It was unreal.

Did anyone see the Banff Mountain film festival? 20 seconds of joy puts base jumping into perspective, that's for sure.
