Topic - Miles Daisher
On Thursday, 43-year-old BASE jump and sky-dive veteran Miles Daisher hurled himself from the rafters of the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, with only 230 feet between him and the polished floor. It only took 13 seconds, but the 19-story fall was enough time to experience just about every emotion — and to briefly reassess his career.
"When you start to come in for a landing when you sky-dive, that's where you start your BASE jump," he said, alluding to the fact that BASE jumpers leap from far lesser heights than skydivers. "I didn't want to crash in front of everybody. My heart wants to jump out of my chest, and I feel like I'm melting a little bit."
"I love to fall," he said between high-fives with friends and hugs from his three young children. "It seemed like forever in the air, though."
