Douggs is all dressed up in Austria with nowhere to BASE jump because a judge has cancelled the competition. He goes jumping with friends anyway and is nearly arrested by the police, a couple of times. He eventually hooks up with rally driver Franz Wittmann and the two go joyriding through the countryside, or as Franz calls it, 'breaking Dougg's Spirit'. Fortunately Dougg's spirit stays mostly intact and he is able to fit in a few more jumps and even a refreshing sundown beer. Who says it's all thrill seeking and near death in the BASE world?
Douggs may not look it but he is a very gracious person and wants to send a big thanks to Markus Rempelsberger and Bernhard Schaden at Grabner Motorsport, Markus Wolfgang Lienbacher and Lukas Auer at Airnail, the good people at Adamstal Golf Courses, and of course, Franz Wittmann for the multiple adventures.
