where are you doing your paragliding certification?

MisterP 07-15-2010 02:03 PM

masan, with a rad guy named Mr. Park. I am sure he is into base jumping. He is into everything extremely dangerous. I will ask him if he can get me started so i can join ya'll.

Cool. But, before you get to keen. Here's a good place to start:

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.

So, has anyone anymore information about BASE? I would love to take my FJC... but I dunno if there's any around?

Mr.P - where are you taking the paragliding course...? Could you provide some details?
