Mind blowing skillz and balls

This is the incredible moment a wingsuit flyer navigates his way through a narrow cave at speeds of 155 miles per hour.

Flyer Alexander Polli cuts through the air above a rugged mountainside in Spain. The jaw-dropping video was uploaded to YouTube by Epic TV yesterday. It begins with Polli jumping from a helicopter, which hovers above the Roca Foradaad Mountains in Montserrat, Spain

A little more lighthearted, but some serious dancing. I can't tell if it's real or not? Anyone?

Another needle

We've been busy and probably only going to get busier, but I did manage to sneak away for a few hours last week. I biked and hiked and pushed and slushed and sweated. There was very little snow, only a bit in the shade. I lucked into this shed, about a 40" main beam and good mass, not too far from my finds last year. 

And in other news people are starting to guess at what this summer will bring. Little bit of weather nerd stuff for the Missoula area:

 Two significant or near significant records have occurred
 during the past two years.
 1. Missoula has not experience a temperature below 0 since
 Feb 25th, 2011.
 This is the second longest period on record. If a below 0 day does
 not occur through October 2013 the all time record of consecutive
 days without sub zero reading will be broken.  This is likely
 for there has never been a sub 0 day in Missoula from April
 through October.
