..I want a 'wing-suit' for Christmas, Santa!!! flight just like a bird..WOW.. what that must feel like???

..only problem can't just pull up and land on a tree branch to chirp out a song.

..and, ONE mistake..!! it's all over!

..that can be said for stepping off the curb too!

..what about a "sky-diving" g2g???

I started jumping about 10 years ago... never got into wing suits.

I think a skydiving g2g would be AWESOME!

below is a video of landing a wing suit in water (no chute)

I've always wanted to try skydiving at least once (and it is on my bucket list).
That video though...I didn't even SEE the opening until he was right up to it.
I would have gone splat right into a rock.

Years ago, I did the training for a jump when I was doing a story on women in the “thrill” sports. I went up in the jump plane many times. Just before my jump, I thought I figured out I was excited by the flying more than the jumping. That-- and I had two small kids at the time and my then husband wasn’t so keen on me possibly leaving them motherless! Anyway, years after that when my kids were grown, I went parasailing—and was hooked, hooked, HOOKED! Now I think maybe I was wrong to cancel my skydive. So it’s back on my (short) bucket list. Not sure I'd want to try THAT jump, though!

Anyone that is thinking about doing it enough to put it on your bucket list...should GO!!!!

It's really a safer sport then you would imagine.

And if anything goes wrong, they put what's left of you in a bucket, thus the name

Never ever never wanted to try sky diving. I have an issue with heights. However I DID jump out of a ferris wheel when I was a kid because the stupid man wouldn't stop it to let me off. Jumped just when it came down by the platform. Scared that man senseless. Betting he had to take worker's comp leave. I also think that he did stop for the next little girl that said she wanted OFF.
