Thanks for the articles. I am going to continue to look through them and figure out what i think. Spatula is informative in a morbid way but good stuff to know. the second website should definitely be listed afterwards and i appreciate your choice in doing so.
I did not consider this much but one article states:
"When you ask someone to teach you to BASE jump you need to understand the magnitude of your request."
and then goes on to list why. haha... oops.
well, if i ever get my stats up and ready to jump i will let ya'll know. till then safe journeys and let me know if you are interested in paragliding and/or climbing.
