You really need to check out this video of an incredible feat by a guy who has no fear of what may happen to him. Absolutely amazing. Just watching it made my adrenaline flow.

As much as I enjoyed watching the video, there is not enough gold in Ft Knox to convince me to do go off a waterfall.

Oh come on.

Did they say that about the first guy who jumped out of a perfectly fine airplane with nothing but a nylon bed sheet?

Or how about the first guy to lick the back of a toad to find out you could get high?

I saw this a day or so ago on wimp.com, my source of viral videos. I actually got the impression this was well thought out and not an act of a drunkard.

Palouse Falls is about 30 miles from us. The stunt occurred maybe a couple of years ago.

People like this are how the rest of us learn our limits.

WOW! That’s a tiny kayak. Must be difficult to fit a set like he must have in such a small craft!

I did a ten footer in a rubber raft once.

It hurt.

Most interesting!

Dave, as you may recall I have a long history of dumb feats on rock, ice, motorcycles...two and one half years in country with the scars to prove it.

Yet most of what I did was after a lot of practice and working up a route, sometimes after several visits.

The question is what skill set made this possible?
Is this any different then a healthy young buck trying to impress a female?

Not to detract from his fun but was he there just for the ride or does he do something to make this a viable run?

Wow, really? I thought I was the only idiot to try that.

How did you fare?

I landed on a bale of hay because I jumped out the window in the barn dad used to pull the hay through to get it into the loft.

If anyone ever tells you that landing on hay is perfectly fine because of the softness. Well let me tell you, my butt still hurts from it.

Ok, truth is the hay really was soft, but the whooping I took for destroying my grandma's umbrella is what made my butt sting.

I just wish there were digital cameras in the 70's so my friends and I could have captured all the stupid things we did back then that sounded good at the time, but in hindsight we were really blessed by angels from God watching over us.

How we ever survived our childhood with out all the liberals to protect us from ourselves I'll never know.

The first guys to do this used linen or silk sheets. Nylon hadn't been invented yet.

1785, believe it or not. Well, technically these guys were jumping out of balloons, not airplanes.
