Bridge Day 2017

This past week Brent and I were looking forward to camping closer to the New River Gorge near Fayetteville West Virginia. We stopped in the cutest little coffee shop called Top Knot and spoke with the owners who informed us we'd made it just in time for Bridge Day. 

Bridge Day is this annual celebration where over 85,000 people come out to eat food, shop from local vendors, and watch brave souls BASE jump off one of the largest bridges in the world.

Enjoy a little video I made (thanks Brent for a few clips) and wait for the humans that were catapulted off. Apparently you had to have over 100 skydives to do a base jump and then you had to have 50 basejumps to do the catapult. CRAZY. My heart was racing and I was merely a spectator.
