Freedom or Insanity?

Every person has a different idea of what it means to be free. For some, any time away from work is freedom. Others prefer the life of a bachelor or bachelorette, free from commitment or responsibility. Weekend warriors of all sorts run to hobbies to find freedom during their two days of parole. I find my freedom when I am in the mountains. There isn’t a place in the world ¬†that provides as many forms of freedom. Yet there are a select few humans on this planet that are simply wired differently. Freedom for these types is more definite, literal, and a bit crazy… Perhaps borderline insane.

Intro to Tancrede and Julien. These self proclaimed Frenchies have pioneered sky line base jumping. Combining the high risks of sky lining and the thrill of free fall base jumping. Complete and utter freedom from not only work, or life, but the laws of gravity. Freedom from the norms of human thought and self preservation. Insanity… and I mean that in the most admirable way, because for some of us, it takes some motivation to realize how to live an exciting life. Watch this. It is insane.
