If there’s a single day each year to get after the outdoor activities it’s Summer Solstice.
This year Red Bull athlete, Miles Dashier will take advantage of the longest day of the calendar year to break his friend, Danny Weiland’s record of 61 jumps from the Perrine Bridge in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
“Summer Solstice is June 20th, Miles Daisher will attempt to BASE jump 62 times off of his hometown bridge, I.B. Perrine Bridge, breaking a world record for most human powered BASE jumps in 24 hours.” – Fundraiser Page
Weiland set the record back in September of 2016 and while the autumn months typically host the most favorable winds for BASE jumping, Dashier has decided to use the longest day instead of the most predictable.
Still, Dashier says if he doesn’t finish by dusk he’ll just keep jumping in order to raise money for The Magic Valley Trail Enhancement Fund. He even went so far as to tell MagicValley.com that “I’ve got plenty of Red Bull… I can keep going all night long.” Donations of $500 of more will receive a live shoutout from Miles on the night of the event.
Good Luck Miles!
