730 jumps in 2006

Recommended Posts

Tom Manship had over 1,800 BASE jumps a couple of weeks before he died. (it was between 1825 and 1850...I can't seem to recall what the exact number was)

Of course, for most, it's not about the numbers. It's about the experiences, the fun, the memories, and the friends you make along the way.

And I think it's safe to say that Miles is having a lot of fun. Congrats Miles!

But the real question is, who's going to win Clifhuckstable's Vision?

How many of those were unpacked jumps from the Perrine Bridge?

Quite honestly, I think that anyone who likes to have their friends get on-line and spray about their numbers ought to be willing to break down those numbers.

306



Wow. That's an amazing coincidence. I must have been present for most of Miles' unpacked jumps. I had thought that he mostly jumped unpacked, but I guess it's just that I coincidentally happen to be out when he's running up the unpacked laps, and miss all of his packed jumps.

Hey, since you seem to have his logbook information, would you mine posting a breakdown of the jumps, like the ones posted here by Dwain and others? I'm sure many people are interested in what statistics can be drawn from such a large number of jumps.

Thanks!

I posted only because I find this backhanded shit-flinging more than a little tiresome. I respect you and consider you a friend, but you don't make the world a better place by being catty.

Tom.. i think your a cool guy but put down the pipe..(said in a freindly way)
I dont agree in many thing about Miles,but im of the belive that what he has done is damn impressive,If 306 jumps were unpacked off Perrine so what.. I LOG UNPACKED AS BASE ASWELL,when i do unpacked im jumping off fixed,hence fixedobject jumping..

Some people dont think SL is BASE either you need to pitch your self.. how many jumps we all got for real then?

Miles,you have done fantastic,hats off,if i could make that many jumps in a year i wouldnt even be sure i could pull it off anyway,only thing i regret is if you dont hit 850jumps of this year,which were my bet..>:(

Its all about having fun,enjoying yourself and suroundingsB|

Stay safe

Excactly.

I think there are BASE-jumps and lazy ass unpacked bridgejumps. ;)

Me and the Northen Norgies made about 30 - 40 big wall climbs this year each. thats about 40.000 altitude meters to climb. Id like to see anybody do a 200 of those a year. hehe.

There are jumpers and there ar jumpers ;)

Yea thats what I heard aswell.

Bridgejumping is for training, for cripples that cant walk at all or for jumpres that are to drunk.

You can only log 25 jumps from Perrine, its clear.

While we are talking about this, Who is the best basejumper in the world??? ;)
