Tri Cities and Beyond: Base jumping at Bridge day

Base jumping at Bridge day

Who knew this was such a popular event?  Hundreds of people take part of this very interesting sport.  And thousands watch on!  Yesterday, in Fayette County West Virginia, the annual Bridge Day was the perfect spot to jump off an 876 foot high bridge.  Really?  Hmmm, sounds a little crazy, but many find it exhilerating and just what the doctor ordered to add a little excitement, a hobby, stress reliever in their life.  Whatever the reason, it is a spectacular site to see and there were people from all across the nation participating.  Pretty cool.

I heard people say,"it brings sanity to my life"  "It's my passion" and my favorite was a parapalegic jumping in his wheelchair with a perfect landing.  The New River Gorge is the river they jumped over and considered by many to be the oldest river in America.  It's a sight everyone needs to see.Bridge Day

Cindy, Rebecca Gaugot in WV had this same event on a post recently.   Cannot imagine jumping off a bridge, even if tethered!

Hi Cindy,

So did you jump? I would love to be there and see you jump. But I would pass as far as being a participant.

Have a good day in Johnson City, Tennessee.

Best, Clint McKie
