I’ve had a secret fantasy for a number of years now that’s been telling me to head out to a huge mountain and try out a wingsuit. I think it’s probably the closest thing I’ll actually get to flying. And everyone knows that guys have wanted to fly since they were little boys. When people used to ask me, when I was young, what I would want if I could have anything at all, I told them I wanted Laura. But right after that, I told them that I wanted to fly. I would practice too. I would run outside and climb up on top of my brother’s old fort and jump to the ground. It was probably around six feet high, which might explain why my knees hurt so much today.
I’ve posted these types of videos in the past, but apparently, the people who use wingsuits to get around continue to up the ante and make better and better videos. It all started with Jeb Corliss in his “Grinding the Crack” video, but has spread like wildfire among others. He paved the way though. I don’t know the names of these new folk and I really don’t care. I probably shouldn’t get too attached either because their line of work is somewhat dangerous. They may not be around for long.
Check out these video. If you aren’t familiar with base jumping, you’re in for a treat.
