I can see how the flying done in the Treetop Flyer video (which I love watching, by the way) could be done with some degree of safety, at least from wire and tower strikes. The first time I saw that I said to my wife, "I sure hope that guy regularly canoes or walks that area and knows for sure there are no obstructions. Otherwise it would be a crazy-stupid thing to do".

Stuff like that is far outside the envelope of anything I'd try. I can see how someone who knows the area very well, and checks it regularly, could do it without killing himself...

at least a few times.

If that big fan quits, though, it's going to get very, very uncomfortable in a big hurry.
