Yesterday Fritz and I went to see some BASE jumps from a building in Oslo. Radical stuff, it was a kick just watching it, I can really understand why people want to do it. The jump off point was 60-70 meters over the ground. Nice conditions with clear skies and a setting sun, jsut a little cold in the breeze.
After two jumps the police arrived in force, 2 cars and one motorbike, and we had to climb down with the remaining two jumpers. It’s not illegal to do BASE, but the building is private. One of the police officers was a BASE jumper, guess that’s why they showed up so quickly – to see a few jumps if they could. All they asked us for was personalia, which is normal procedure according to the locals.
