When I heard about the death of Dean Potter. The trial When you ride like lightening you are going to crash like thunder struck me.

I don't like to use that word but was sort of quack climbing and paragliding in the world in 2002. I won't say here and resume work because I like to think they were not the main person and a brief search on Google can do it much better than me.
For me was inspiration law of pushing the limits of human ability. But how far can we push until the borders are beginning to push back? A person who has a special relationship with the life and death.

I'm glad he was. I'm glad I'm not the only one who settles for mountaineering special significance that goes far beyond reaching the highest point on the ridge.

Dean crashed during a chase with jump wings from Yosemite Valley Taft Point, killed his friend, a gifted climber and jumper Graham ' Grambo ' Hunt very special person that is very little known about him. Even in our technological age is tried and managed to save himself and his achievements (striking) under the radar.

Maybe now you fly free, e. Shay as you always wanted.

The legend of Daedalus and Icarus, and/or bnalia of the die.
Daedalus was a Greek engineer who according to mythology was invited by King Minos of Crete, to design and build the birint-maze which sought to hide the Minotaur Monster born to him and his wife.
After the nsetima, minus the prison Daedalus and his son Icarus in that maze, it demands that secrets could leak no maze entrance.
To escape from the maze, and Crete, Daedalus himself and us, system made of feathers and wax, which could soar from the maze and escape before it took off, Daedalus warned Icarus not to fly his barn, as she approaches the Sun could melt the wax wings.
Icarus, the young and the reckless hour, according to his father, her chicken, the hot sun melted the wax wings, they broke up and he crashed.
This story is an example (according to Greek mythology) to the worst sin-sin of hubris.

As to that law.
Never heard of it until yesterday. (I'm not that branz) but filmed interview with him, he said he has no problem with death, death is part of life, etc.
It is likely that his death adds additional tweaks to the gloripicatia of the character, and he will join the list of all these martyrs who flew too close to the Sun.
Maybe it's a matter of age, maybe it's because I saw a thing or two in my life, I'm concerned that Dean Potter is now a pile of flesh and bone and mangled disclaiming, without a degree and at some crappy cliff in Yosemite.
Not something inspiring.
Sorry about was pretty boy.

Reminded me a little bit.

You are very focused on death.
Focus on life.

What about the thing that most pleases you and your life is also very dangerous. Should I give up and settle for running another lifestyle which would be safer but unhappy or live your life the way you know the danger involved?
This is the dilemma in which living and life. I don't think it's fair to call it off and say that since his death nothing is left but a pile of flesh and bones as you said.

Each and every one of us when out for some Adventure might not have come back. So we are martyrs who are flying too close to the Sun? Or are we simply people who enjoy hiking in the mountains and taking on the risk that?

Ordinary person of prinas crossing (like you did last year) looks like a very dangerous adventure and a death wish. You look so Dean's life. Each leaves his point of view and judge according to amothio.

He was a talented climber and has many achievements, and shame.
But I have to disagree with Arthur.
The BASE jumping small safety than btiol or climbing,
And the implications of any serious failure several times,
What makes this practice, death wish was for many cases.
As a point for thought: people survive accidents and getting out of difficult situations, tours
I'm pretty sure you can't say the same for exits.
Therefore there is no connection between the exits for the Pyrenees,
And also not to climb in the Himalayas.

It's my opinion,
Anyway.

I see a very tight knot. The connection is that both those who decide on the level of risk is the man.
Allow dropping base many years without that nothing is going to happen. But even here there is more small niche niche of a fitful jumps. That are beyond the ordinary. The same can be done when planning Bill.
And on a larger scale I'm talking about trying to live your life even if they are not the norm. To try and improve and continually of what you do. Even if the blink of spunk up also.

I brought if the trails to illustrate that we parked domain can connect to this desire for the next adventure and more original and daring and sometimes dangerous.

P.s. I think there are a few types of most dangerous type.

Hello,

You probably know that I run and much. So I happened to pick up dozens of lightning hit me It was awful. I just stood in shock and could not continue. Came home shivering and not because of the rain and cold. I don't run in the rain and the running I so love. And believe me, it's not like someone telling you. After you pass it is horrible no matter who asichoim are small.

Avi Barak's direct hit farm but not killed, and eventually get rid of cancer at age 54.

Life is too short. And we have no idea how. My shot killed a 1000 times smaller than a shot killed in a car accident some Baboon Dir El-Assad. Haven't given up on running in the rain despite the experience despite my father's stories.

Another point-you never know where she was.

The only thing I can think about it kids, wife, relatives. Agoisti. to continue a hobby when you know the risks?

And BTW, mountaineering is not at the Summit on the climb itself.

Thanks for sharing your story neutrinos.
The question is an important question and I think everyone thinks about her like that. About augism a hobby or a way of life that can be dangerous.
The fact this question forward is perhaps to index still "OK". This conflict is very human to me.
