"It's the total acceptance of fear and knowing you don't have brakes. You have one choice, and that's to go for it. It's fun. You just have to relax and let gravity take you. When you do that, that's what makes you giggle. Relaxed chaos: Everything's going so fast, and you're just trying to stay calm and absorb it and enjoy the ride."
