Off Base / Winter Doldrums

There's plenty of time to contemplate safety as we plan for next season. For instance, this guy is using a rock instead of a cinder block. Good.

That might get about as far afield as some of us dare. I'll offer this link for the true thrillseekers in our audience. Tell me if you don't agree that is 2airishuman in the yellow suit?

Thumbs up Cure for Doldrums

Well, you've given me something to do now. The Vimeo video site should keep me entertained for a while...

Time for a break...

Like I alluded to above, you have now got me digging through this site...

Found this one.

Should help the mental state of those up to their hubcaps (or more) in snow...

I just don't get it. Jump off a perfectly good cliff.

I guess that answers the question, "if your friends jumped off a cliff, would you?"

The only thing that comes to mind is an expression that I have not formerly used but heard and think it truly fits the situation, forgive me please...Holy C@#P! I'm spellbound. Now what would William Buckley say? Well however eloquently he would word smith it, that is astonishing!!!

Thanks Canoestream, I have never heard of the sport before. If there was ever something I wish we could do that we can't do, it would be to fly and soar like a bird. But trying to get even closer to the rocks for exhilleration added upon already extraordinary risks would make me want to shield my eyes rather than be a spectator. I am ever so glad to have witnessed these successful jumps and flights though. Simply amazing.

Yes I would and I am looking forward to it! Looking for a "perfectly" good airplane to jump out of as well.

Nobody needs to ask where Michelle gets her solid nerve.

And then I looked for one of the best known Norwegian base jumping points at 604 metres, Preikestolen or the Preacher's Chair. What else shows up but this website! Too cool or what?

That's a very cool banner too Jim. Your tour has really brought you to the "heights" of travel. Hope Michigan is a fond although cold memory for you two. Where are you and Verna after leaving the Can Opener, or are you still there?

Aha, I see you noticed Verna up there on the Pulpit.
Marlon has me going back to the wilds of Alberta to capture 35 more darned jackalope for the childrens' zoo in Atlanta. Times are tough. We have to generate 50% more impalements for our tie-in with Physicians & Surgeons, LLC.

Bob, I think we met at the Can Opener but I didn't realize it was you. I met more than one Bob that weekend. Hope your travels are going smoothly. Happy Trails!
