No room for error.

Saw this the other day and couldn’t believe it was real.

That helmet must be on too tight. Constricting the brain.

When someone like that meets an untimely death, they usually say “at least he died doing what he loved.”

I submit that “what he loved” was not “slamming into a rock at 200 mph.”

A cave? Not exactly. More like a giant metamorphic donut hole (yeah, I know. It was either igneous or sedimentary before it was metamorphic. Hairsplitters.).

But the stunt was scary even though the “cave” wasn’t. His release point: jumping from a hovering helicopter can’t be very precise. What if his release point had been another 10 feet lower due to a sudden downdraft? I know those flying squirrel suits slow your rate of descent, but can you actually rise with one? If he’d miscalculated and come in too low……..SPLAT! Another red spot on the rock. No, this one wasn’t done with too much preparedness. This was pure Snake Plissken Style – making shit up as you go along.

Like free solo rock climbing, this is an example of someone who is WAY too comfortable with death.
