I would really like to learn how to use a wing suit. Not to do extreme base jumping but just for normal skydiving I think it would be fun.

I really enjoy these video's

How can you account for being screwed if the wind changes and you just crash into rocks? This seems like suicide.

Most of us will never get a chance to do this in our lifetimes, so the next best thing is to learn how to lucid dream The sensations are very real, and there is no risk of dying!

Jeb Corliss, another guy doing these crazy wingsuit flights, said the following in his Matterhorn video:
"I go into it expecting death."

Youtube search "Jeb Corliss" and you can see some of his other crazy flights, like "Grinding the Crack"


Especially check out 1:30+....

It's not a matter of if, just when. Sad, really.
