This Daredevil Dog Is Not Afraid Of Jumping Out Of Planes…Or Anything Else.

No, Riley the dog doesn’t want to go for a walk. For this four-year-old dachshund, it’s going to for a jump out of a plane or bust. Luckily for him, his owner Nathan Batiste is more than willing to comply with his daredevil dog’s desires. Having made over 400 jumps himself, there can’t be many owners who are better qualified to skydive with their pup. And skydive they did. 

People might not understand why this dog and owner duo go sky diving…

But that doesn’t stop this pair!

What an awesome jump! If you don’t feel like you’ve had enough of Riley, don’t worry. Nathan says he thinks Riley had a blast and plans to take him for another jump in the near future. Hopefully, Nathan still maintains control of the parachute.

I have a lot of faith in Riley, but I don’t think he’s quite ready to handle that sort of responsibility yet… especially since he lacks opposable thumbs.

Only The Ridiculously Brave (Or Insane) Would Attempt This Walk In The Alps.

This is certainly one way to burn off some of the chocolate you began gorging on as soon as you got to Switzerland. Sure, most of the calories will likely burn from complete and utter fear, but a workout’s a workout. Beginning in November, those interested in taking an extreme trek through the Swiss Alps can do so on the Peak Walk, a 10,000 feet high walkway that features a partially glass floor and a long look at your life. To say that it’s an intense trek would be like calling the Swiss Alps a series of hills. Take a look!

Oh, and one more thing, don’t look down.

As you can probably imagine, building the walk was no easy task.

You know you’re up high when the only way you can get materials is via helicopter.

Watch the builders in action in the video below. If you thought the Peak Walk seemed intimidating in the photos, just wait until you see this.

Think you’re too scared to give the Peak Walk a try? Well, think about this: it’s free! Yeah, see you up there.
