Yes, its impressive, but makes me wonder what goes thru the head of someone wanting to try something like this other than to get a worlds record!

Its mostly the adrenaline rush. I go over falls at times(nothing over 15-20ft.) I think this is insane but at the same time impressive...

I doubt that record will be beat anytime soon.

I have decided to go after Angel Falls in Venezuela. All 2640ft of them. Top that. Anyone want to join me. I am definitely ok with tandems.

Oh no. I'm going Bugs Bunny with an anvil in place of the chute. :).... Now that I think about it maybe I could also implement a bungy cord. Primarily for safety of course.

Oh no. I'm going Bugs Bunny...

 Winner for catch phrase of the week!  Sets one's mind reeling with inspiration...

  • Going Superman – I’ve met climbers that seem to fly up mountains.  Opposite of going Buggs Bunny.
  • Going slo mo – Opposite of Superman, speed wise.  Climbed with a couple of these dudes too.
  • Going Richard Prior – The guy who cooked in his tent one too many times.
  • or Going Richard Prior - Hiking off into a white out against better judgement.
  • Going Foghorn Leghorn – Guy who has the loud mouth, bosses everyone around, but is incapable of finding his own butt in the dark.   Hired a guide that fit this description once.  Never again…
  • Going Orange County Chopper – Dysfunctional father and son team on a weekend outing.  We’ve all seen this one.  Pretty as a train wreck.
  • Going Angelina Jolie – Talk about pretty!  What fun!  Whatever going Angelina means, I’m there!
  • Going Snookie – Sounds like fun, but I’ll pass just the same.  And avoid wherever she happens to be.
  • Going Elmer Fud - Have no idea what that would be, probably not so fun, but certainly something stupid, and you want to be nowhere near this train wreck
  • Going Martin Sheen – We all know what this would be, and its definitely something stupid.

I can't afford doing this one first class, so my verson of going postal entails something more akin to boring you to death.  A sure fire defence would be a bottle of Johnny Black, but if none is at hand, just run away, you'll be safe!

I was gonna say that but I opted to stay away from that conversation... Very far away.

Going Jeremiah Johnson, leave society and live in the wilderness, fighting off indians and the cold.

Most exhilarating to watch and I am proud of his success in doing this. But, I believe I have to be on the sidelines at this one on a personal note.

These guys we're discussing are all worthy of the esteemed "Darwin

Balls or nuts?

Awesome.I admire those who push the boundary of what is considered normal.Open your minds gentlemen to what is possible not closed to views other than your own.After all it is just all about opinions rather than everyones reality.Of course this is just my own opinion.
