From the Catfish Files

Forget the X-Files, although some of Catfish's emails would certainly earn that rating, and just get on the Catfish Files(TM) mailing list and get ready to fly.

Yes, it's perfectly safe for viewing. For doing? Not so much:

Yep. Totally off the chain.

After having a few hours to think about it...I'm not entirely sure that I wouldn't do that...just not so sure I'd do it so closely next to a mountain.

Oh, and I'd need a few lower altitude practice runs first. And some low-flying aircraft nearby, to rescue me...just in case I managed to f**k up somehow, which I have no doubts I would do.

Maybe an Idaho-sized net draped across the area over where I'd be flying? Oh, and Depends. That would be a compulsory supply, as well.

Then I would probably do it. But I would also need to know that I'd be able to back out at the last minute as well...if need be.

Just in case.

I chicken the f**k out.

C'mon, you mean to say you never dropped in then ripped at 250'? xo ;~)

That was pretty impressive, but I'm not sure what it would take to get me to do that.

That is insane. At first I thought it was a hoax but it appears that it's real. The suits are called wingsuits.


I'd like to try skydiving but I've no desire to try using a wingsuit.
