One of the very few who told it like it is! I'll miss that guy.

Holy crap Bodyflight!

If you can manage half of that you are 1 degree cool above absolute zero!

Damn that looks like fun, but I'm guessing you need to be somewhat experienced in skydiving prior to....?

WE WANT VIDEO!

Good luck and don't shatter your shins!

I'll try! Actually I don't think I'll be QUITE that close to the terrain! The guys doing that vid are seriously good and know the area very well. But Daniel at BlueFunk is running a series of camps in October where you get a seminar on the Friday, then jump over the mountains over the weekend with plenty of support from the organisers. Pricey, but worth it I reckon. There's also a similar thing in Sweden with different organisers but you ground-launch on that one rather than use the heli, so should be more affordable - just pay for the lift-pass.
Nice vid though, eh? There's a few more on their website:

I warn you, right here and now, this will break your brain. HARD !

The gentlemen... starring... in this clip is (allegedly) Professor Bill Nelson, inventor of the Quantum Xrroid Consciousness Interface, “the most advanced medical assessment and therapy device in the world today”. I ran across his great work here.

If you are feeling brave, click on. I find it mesmerising.

Mike.
