DAREDEVIL TRIES IT AGAIN
Did you happen to catch Nik Walenda walk across Niagara Falls Friday night. Pretty exciting stuff. Some say no big deal, he wore a harness!
Now get ready for another big stunt.
The guy who rode 235 miles in a lawn chair tethered to a bouquet of balloons has announced he will ride again, but this time he’ll be joined by a co-pilot.
Kent Couch and an Iraqi adventurer Fareed plan to take off from Couch’s gas station in Bend, Ore., on July 14th.
The daredevil pair say they hope to clear at least 400 miles, which would mean a landing somewhere near southwestern Montana.
The pair also plan to embark on another flight together in the fall, this time in Iraq.
The lawn chair balloonists are using the flight as an opportunity to raise awareness for Iraqi orphans, Couch said on his website.
