Watching this video freaks me out.

Steph Davis is so brave, she’s relaxed when she jumps off a clif in a squirrel suit, hardly blinking as she plummets/glides 1,000s of feet in just a few seconds.

Yup, she’s brave. Or crazy. Seeing Steph and friends jump off cliffs and nearly slide (fall at high velocities) into cliff edges…my heart was in my chest.

The attraction to nearly dying? I don’t get it. Life is for living, and being of benefit to others. I don’t get it. Steph is amazing, and beautiful in and out, and I hate seeing friends and loved ones risk their lives. Too often, living in Boulder, you hear bad news. About three times a year. Way too often.

That said, cool video!

  1. Wow, this is a great video. Just another walk around the yard.

    I am completely missing the "risk-your-life-for-the-thrill-of-it" gene. I'll just watch, thank you.

    Aww Waylon, I love ya too!

    And the whole point is definitely NOT nearly dying.

    The point is to fly!!!

    I avoid being scared as much as possible.

    xxxxSteph
