I first interviewed Tracy Walker, Base 283 back in 2009. I titled his interview after his signature line, since that time we have continued to keep in touch on both of professional and personal level. I have been pestering Tracy to take some time and write his memoirs, the man has an interesting life story to tell and a charming way of expressing himself. There are life lessons in his life story for all of us.
My dear friend, whom I like to refer to as “big brother” for the way he chides me into doing more than I thought possible, has finally put finger to keyboard.
Blue Skies magazine posted the first part of his tale of his first jump of El Cap way back when in the early days of BASE. In a time when people didn’t speak about BASE jumping openly, there where no GoPro’s, and slapping mosquito’s at the exit point could get a man killed.
Check out Tracy’s story at: El Cap. Voice your opinion in the comments and by voting to let the editors know Tracy deserves a shot at the big time in print.
