That was awesome!

I know my stunts over the years pale in comparison to what this man did, but I understand the thrill. I loved jumping out of an airplane. When we were kids, we'd jump off bridges, cliffs...anything that would give us a the type of thrill this guy must have had. I believe this is why I was a roofer throughout much of my 20's, the thrill of knowing not many people will do what I did.

Now that I am in my 40's, over the last few years when I occasionally get up on a roof, I am a little skeer'd. Cliff diving, probably not. But I am pretty sure I would jump out of a plane again.

I can relate to what El is saying. Really wish these suits had been around twenty or thirty years ago. I would've taken the time to learn it and have a blast.

I with Lanky. No way I would even want to stand that close to the edge. If I got that close would probably be dead from heart failure.

Broke both his legs apparently. Hate to say it, but if you keep doing that kind of high-risk activity, probably only a matter of time before you are killed. I admire people with the kind of balls it takes to do these kinds of things, but personally I'm a risk vs. reward kind of a guy. I don't think your stomach has to be in your mouth or that you have to be going 200 mph in order to 'live life' fully. Then again, I believe as long as you aren't hurting anyone else, you should be free to do whatever you want. Those wing suits are simply amazing.
