You probably know how it feels to fall — you can feel it in your gut. It shocks your system and you want to scream. But do you know how it feels to fall more than 300 feet? That's a feeling only a BASE jumper knows well.

Some of the biggest daredevils on earth, the best BASE jumpers can push their leaps to heights of almost 3,000 feet above the earth. How's that for stomach-turning, jaw-dropping excitement?
