I think I may have stumbled across someone who has figured it out. What I am going to show you by posting the following videos has got to be one of the most (if not the most) exhilarating activities I have ever seen in my entire life.
When I say that Jeb Corliss has figured it all out, I mean that he has managed a way to rise above. While we are sitting here dealing with the drama of everyday life and society, he is flying above us in some of the earth’s most beautiful spots. His adrenaline is pumping and even if this is his last flight, it was all worth it. How many of us can say that we have done something so satisfying, that if we didn’t make it back, it would be okay? Not many I’m sure. My adrenaline pumps just watching these base jumps.
If you want it explained better than what I can do, here is Jeb’s description from his Facebook page:
The fear is literally like a hurricane inside your head. Every nerve ending is saying “DONT DO THIS!!! Once you take that step, theres no coming back. It’s something that WILL change you as a human being.
