Jumpers paradise

Nick I am not joking it was extremely windy today at Beachy Head, I nearly got blown over the edge! Seriously it felt very, very, cold and talking of ''jumper'' I was really lucky to wear my thermal ! :)

I'd say lovely things at the funeral Nick but I'm glad that you are still with us :) ~ You would not get me anywhere near the edge of the cliff on a windy day, whatever direction the wind was blowing in!! I thought those sheep of your's would come in handy ~ it was rather chilly today outside to say the least ~ all the best

Thank you Nick, you are very kind! :) But no thank's no need for that for a very long time, wind or no wind! You must know Nick that to be afraid is never too safe. Instead what you should do is live a little on the edge, then like most that do you will loose any fear you might have and in so doing you'll live a safe and very long life... Having said that, what would you do with the old problem of dementure!!! :)) Ciao, Nick

Having climbed the odd mountain and abseiled down cliff faces bigger than this ~ I've smelt the sweat of fear Nick and quite agree that living on the edge can be fun, but there is little point in tempting fate standing near the edge of a cliff on a windy day :)) ~ anyway I'm saving Beachy Head for when the dementure gets too bad ~ but of course by then I will have forgotten where and why :) ~ Ciao nick

Nick I am not a complete idiot I know what I am doing, most of the time :) I am still quite elastic and can move quickly if I have to... but I was not talking about skills before but about fears. I might be wrong but you sound fearful of hight's to me even though you say you have climbed high! Goodnight Nick

Ermanno, Questo tuo commento lo appena visto adesso non so da dove sia arrivato ! :) magnifica tu dici... Devi sapere che in questo posto qualcuno scivola e qualcuno prova a volare ma solo verso il basso. :( Ciao, Nick

Roberto Lo Savio on March 8, 2010

Nick, le croci dicono tutto ma il tuo precedente commento lo conferma. Dev'essere un volo tremendo :(

Nick Todaro on March 8, 2010

Roberto, Certamente non credo piacevole!... Sono situazioni tragighe e certamente da non scherzarci su anche se avrei la tentazione di dire che almeno non dovranno fare la coda per il check in.

Leggi QUI se ne vuoi sapere di piu'. Ciao Nick

Posto perfetto Nick ... fa un po' impressione, accuita dalla presenza delle croci.


Nick Todaro on March 23, 2011

La presenza delle croci sara' per fermare qualche povero diavolo credente :)) Ma per noi illuminati Mario, certamente fara' piu' impressione la caduta nell'acqua essendo qui molto fredda! :))

MarioTs - NO Views on March 23, 2011

boh. per un po' si resiste, magari si aspetta l'estate... e poi se cadi sulla sabbia non ti fai mica tanto male :)

Nick Todaro on March 23, 2011

Ummm.... in QUESTO CASO sara' meglio analizare il terreno da piu' vicino! :))

Forse queste servono come deterrente a non esporsi che non una recinzione..:)

Nick Todaro on July 2, 2011

Mauro, Forse no, perche non molto religiosi come me! :)) Le croci in questo particolare posto normalmente non fermano un minimo di 20 persone all'anno... Le croci come anche fiori sono solo dei simboli lasciati da persone che hanno perso qualcuno volando nellinfinito

Jump for those who want to! If I'm there, I'll surely be 5 meters away from the edge :-)

Nick Todaro on May 15, 2013

Here you would be about 3 meters away, that would be quite safe for you! :) The coastline stretches for miles but this very spot is well known for being the place to jumps. Now fenced hence the reason why I could not get any closer.
