BASE is an amazing sport that I have been a part of for about 9 years. It has got its high points, however many lows. Since I have been jumping, ive had 10 friends die, seen many ambulance rides, 2 life flight helicopter rides, torn most tendons in my body then most, broken several bones, dislocated joints, been chased by the authorities, gotten arrested, the list goes on. Is it worth it? I think so. There are two quotes that stand out to me the most 1) this is engraved on a jumpers tombstone " Don't worry, I knew this was gonna happen" and finally, my favorite "there are two types of base jumpers, those who have been in ICU, and those who will". Knowing what I know now, I would not recommend getting into it.
