How old were you when starting BASE?

Recommended Posts

BASE 74 (Richie) was 16 I believe when he started BASE. 100 BASE jumps before a skydive. Center of high school yearbook had a feature on his BASE jumping. He hit a 1000 BASE jumps something like 5 to 7 years ago.

I miss John Hoover. I was at his funeral.

Now George Roso is an interesting character. He developed a drug addition that led him to homelessness. He somehow came out of it, got into medical school, and graduated 1st in his med school class. He's now a practicing physician.

And Richie is interesting too.

Phil Smith (BASE 1) is really low key now, being a full time family man.

Casey Hoover (John Hoover's (BASE 95) son) was 9 when he made his first BASE jump - a direct bag from a 175 foot bridge.

1st BASE 1995 at Bridge Day 23 year old.
Did B-Day every year.
Really started BASE in 1998 with proper gear. Had 800 skydives, 300 of which were on a Pegasus 220. Went through FJC from BR in Perris CA. Balloon jump trainning.

Today I'm 33 and have 581 BASE jumps and had not had a BASE related injury...knock, knock! Well, except when I hit that tower and got a few minor bruises:$.

Let it flow - let yourself go
Slow and low - that is the tempo

Peace,

Hehe.. you're just keeping one step ahead of Blair.

As for me...
First jump BD'05, 22 years old with ~750 skydives. Today I'm 23 with 28 BASE jumps.
Egad, A BASE life defiles a bad age.
