Jhonny Goes to Colombia
On December 31 2009, Katy Orrego hooked me up with professional Colombian Paraglider Ruben Montoya. I had the pleasure on doing the First Wing Suit BASE Jump in Colombia, after riding tandem then leaping from a paraglider. We took off from El Voladero de San Pedro and flew all the way to Bello. we where at Aprx 1700 Ft from the landing Zone where my family was waiting for this private exhibition.
It was a beautiful experience all around. flying on top of Medellin, flying over urban terrain and flying for the people that you love the most waiting for you with a warm hug. All this magic filled my head during flight and it was then I realized this was a magical way to finish 2009.
I also went to bogota for a couple of days, I did a couple of interviews for two major Colombian Tv News stations, RCN and City Tv. An interview with the biggest news paper in Colombia EL Tiempo went well too. I explained about Wing Suits, BASE Jumping, Team ILL Vision and our future plans. I want to thank all the people that made this possible and I'm looking forward to working again with everyone again.
Thank You and God Bless,
