    Instead Of A 100K USD Ride into Space, I asked If Haiko Would Sponsor Me Instead....
    Hi

    OK. So a while ago I posted a message wondering if Haiko would sponsor me jumping out of a plane at roughly 100,000 feet of altitude instead of me paying 100,000 USD for a ride to space.

    Rexanne did not seem to quite understand my question and so I finally found this link that demonstrate my point a little better.

    At over 600 miles/ hr from 100k ft. altitude it will take some time to land I suppose. I would probably need a suit that I can shed in flight to cover the winged suit so I don't freeze to death at extremely high altitude.

    I can't find the suits for sale yet. I'd also be interested in BASE Jumping off the RIO at Affiliate Summit 2009 too.

    The store is located in Finland but they appear to have dealers throughout the US http://www.bird-man.com/

    Which network will sign them up first?

    Have not been following your thread but why in a world would somebody want to "give" you $100k for you to take a joy ride into space?
    ...or pay for you (to have fun) by jumping out of a plane? I know that presidential candidates are able to command a $100k donation but you...???

    I have a friend who sky dive twice a week and he worked for it. Don't have the money? Work for it the hard way..he is not remotely rich but he packed s to pay his way through dive school. Now, he is into base jumping.

    I'm looking for somebody to sponsor my pizza for the rest of the year. In exchange I promise to eat it during a sporting event on TV of my choosing. I don't expect this offer to last long, so don't hesitate.

    Don't fall for it. He's just trying to get a free ride home.

    You miss the point I see. We are talking a jump from roughly 70,000 feet altitude I guess. Evel Knevel would not be crazy enough to make that jump.

    It is not that I am a nobody, it is the branding. I actually get nothing. So no one gives me a thing, Right ?

    Anyway, I laughed and laughed when I read the responses to this.

    I'm a little slow today. It took me a minute to figure that one out.

    So, when Haiko foots the bill to launch Steve into space, are we going to have a contest to see who gets to push the button to fire the rocket?

    Half & Half right ? I would in fact be scared to death, but on the other hand at 600 mile/ hour if I crashed I would not feel a thing and Man that would beat bungee jumping by a land slide.

    In case you missed it, it would set a new world record and though I would not receive a penny, The marketing would be enormous indeed.

    A hot air balloon would need to be used and later jettisoned and of course the air temp would range between -5 F & -70 F depending on altitude.

    Would anyone seriously sponsor me ? Probably not at this stage, No. I would love to try it though.
