Wingsuit Base Jumping is Amazing!

Daredevils live the dreams of many by taking flight using wingsuit.

I got an email from my dad this morning that amazed me. It was a link to the movie listed below. My dad’s emails usually fall into two categories: virulent anti-bush rhetoric, or scroll-tastic emails w/ some legal joke tucked away 4500px down in the message. Today however he sent me a link to a vid on vimeo and I clicked and I was amazed.

I used to dream of flying – still may (i remember very few of my dreams). I used to dream of being able to run and let go and glide away. Its one of the reasons I so love windsurfing – that feeling of weightlessness and a sense of zero effort speed and grace. Anyhoo – enough waxing poetic about dreams of flight. Here is the video.
