Danny Weiland Completes 61 BASE Jumps in a Single Day
The record for the most BASE jumps in a 24-hour period belongs to National Guardsman Dan Schilling, who, in 2006, flew off the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls, Idaho 201 times. In between jumps, Schilling used a crane to haul himself 486 feet back up to the bridge. Denver resident Danny Weiland, 31, was interested in the record, but with a twist: He aspired to do it unassisted, scrambling back up the canyon wall and biking to the center of the bridge. The previous unassisted record, held by Miles Daisher, was 57. Weiland, a commercial housepainter and part-time fitness trainer, assembled a team of about 20 friends and volunteers to keep him motivated and fueled, and to reset the bike and BASE rigs. After 24 hours, Weiland racked up 61 jumps, and set a new record.
