Whats your favourite quote?
Anything said by Shaun Baker.... "Life is a game with nature, in the end I cannot win", "Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall" (Confucious/ Shaun) , "I feel most alive when I've just escaped with my life".
"I'm planning to run some huge, record-breaking waterfalls," says Baker, 44. "The ones I had to walk away from in the past because I simply would not have been able to clear the rocks at the bottom. This time I can stop 10 metres from the edge, fire the engine up and get a ballistic burst of speed and just fly right over the top. Fifty metres downstream - that's where I'm going to land - literally flying."
