This weekend, I think we should all try and go do something adventurous. Something you’ve never done, or maybe tried and failed before.
This, though, may not be the best idea of choices. It worked for Kent Couch, but I’m not sure you should try and replicate it.
Kent Couch flew in a lawn chair, with filled balloons, 200+ miles into a field in Idaho. He used a BB gun to bring himself down, and apparently everything went well. Though I do wonder- you shoot a BB, break a balloon, you’re bound to fall sorta fast…
Here’s my favorite line of the article about it- “When ever Kent couch went up over 30,000 feet he would shoot a balloon and come down to a more breathable level.” I mean, I do that when I get up that high too. It’s not a big deal.
The article about the whole thing is pretty great. It’s here, and definitely not the brightest thing in the world. But hey, it worked for him. Have a great weekend!
