    I have been to this museum it is simply amazing. And there are so many hidden couples screwing you loose count. Lol In the beach/ ocean section they actually have a porno being shot complete with tiny actors bouncing up and down.

    GRAPHIC!!!!

    I've met Ammon a couple times and he's crazy but super motivated and ....crazy..


    anywhoo, I'm confused by the location. I saw the video of the jump on KSL news which shows him (or someone) clearly jumping from the tombstone which is just up kane creek a few hundred yards. The video above looks to be shot along kane creek blvd BEFORE the road turn into kane creek canyon. Very interesting..


    heres the video from KSL
    <iframe frameborder='0' width='640' height='360' src='http://www.ksl.com/api/jwplayer/player.php?file=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UVpmSA_fZQ&image=http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/6UVpmSA_fZQ/mqdefault.jpg&width=640&height=360' />

    Is this just one of those deals where the media just finds random footage of a previous jump gone wrong and makes it seem like its the actual jump? I guess thats fair play these days. WTF?

    Yup. Was up that way camping last week. Dan, did you find a way out of that area to the west? I followed a bunch of those "access route" signs, but got cut off on all the ones I tried. There was a road heading south that might have worked... but I was running out of time, so I gave up after a few hours and headed north.

    I saw an article which said he ended up keeping his foot, I'll see if I can find it.

    that video is gnarly.

    Ouch.. what's his status? Did they get him to a hospital ok?

    He has to be in shock to not be feeling that in the video.... Wow.

    Tap TAp.. is this thing on? Wow that was weird, I think I broke something maybe.. Sorry bout that

    Sounds liked they can save the foot etc as long as infection doesn't come into play.

    The news station clearly used footage of a different accident to portray Ammons jump. I know that stuff probably happens all the time in media buts its rare when you can spot the BS cause you've been there and know the terrain.

    I would think turning on your go pro and filming yourself would be out of the realm of normal thought for someone in shock but I don't know. I know he laughs off huge falls on bigwalls so he does have a certain mental filter. He's pretty badass regardless IMHO.

    I tried to post this as a reply earlier, but then tom broke the internet.

    http://www.climbing.com/news/ammon-mcneely-survives-base-jumping-accident/

    looks like he will keep his leg for now and is getting a horses dose of antibiotics.

    Wonder if they had to call the big 412 from GJ.

    Congrat's to Cathy!

    Now, someone run out & buy a new $20k sled to restore balance to the universe.

    I'm thinking of a day trip to Saratoga for some prime rib and hot springs this weekend. Weather report so far looks good. It's not clear if hwy 130 over the Snowies is closed for the season yet. It was open yesterday.

    Go for it! We live vicariously through y'all, wanting to ride, but so much to do here.
