Unimportant, but neat. Tuber Runs 80-ft Metlako Falls

With so much tragic news from the holiday weekend, I feel bad posting about this, but for anyone who may be interested in seeing pics of a crazy guy tubing an 80-foot waterfall, you can click [url=http://therangelife.blogspot.com][/HERE] ...

condolences to the friends & family of Adam B.

please be safe out there.

hey that is pretty cool. pretty close to just swimming it in a pfd, but you do get the element of sticking it or not with the tube.

geez it's amazing what soe people sac up to /pull off; So. African adventurer Mike Horn dropping a 60 ftr. on a hydro speed, that dude that survived 170 FT. Niagara Falls sans life jacket,Russians running cass6 in bubliks,etc.
I was reading about a guy in 1990 when the waterfall record was only 50 ft. that ran Niagara to try to launch a career as a stunt man,he didn't wear a helmut because he wanted his face visible in photos,dude was toast but his boat was unscathed,don't know what this really has to do with anything just found it interesting.
