762-foot helicopter catch
It’s probably gonna take me a while to finish the full blog entry, so here’s a little preview — a photo of me catching a baseball that was dropped from 762 feet high:
Why 762 and not 750 or 1,000? Because this was one of several “test” heights. The helicopter was hovering at 900 feet . . . and the field is elevated 138 feet above sea level . . . so that’s how I know it was exactly 762.
I’ll write (a lot more) later, but for now, just know that I’m alive and well and 99 percent uninjured.
