Well worth the 4 minutes.  Maybe I need to expand my bucket list?

That's amazing. Both the road and the guys with wing suits. If I ever win the lottery... happy1

That hole in the rock is Tianmen Cave. The red bull aerobatics guys did flights through there years ago.

Here's one of the ones I want to do. IIRC it's 2600 feet vertically and 4 miles of road in Spain.

The last thing you want is an adrenalin rush when doing stuff like that...well, last thing except for dealing with a crash scenario.

You want to be under control and boring..and leave the intense wired loss of situational awareness nonsense up to the non-participants who are watching.

Wow. That's intense! The road looks like a ton of fun. But, watch out for those buses! I've watched Ice Road Truckers in India and South America. I realize this is Asia but, it seems like the drivers on those roads don't seem to care about what's coming the other way. It seems a little insane to me.

Thanks for posting that pants.

I'm impressed with the way the wing suit can be controlled.  Clearly, they are steering, accelerating, and decelerating it at will.

I showed that video to SOQS. Her comments mirrored my thoughts:

"Very cool, but NFW."

Awesome base jumps.  I bet their heart rates are under 45 bpm.  Talk about living in the moment.  Thanks for sharing this one Pants.

That's some incredible footage, but to be honest -- i found the scene at 00:05 most appealing.
