yup, sad for the wife and kids. can't say i feel too bad tho. when you take on a wife, and have a family, you need to give up your adolescent "superman" ways and think of them first. not your dumb a$$ adrenaline rush.

but if anyone was ever asking for it...

stupid is as stupid does.

We are all shocked, he always seemed larger than life, its hard to believe he is dead. I feel so sorry for his family, his kids are only young. My 6 year old cried when she heard she loves watching the Wiggles and Crocodile Hunter DVD she has.

That is a tragedy, a real tragedy. Such a charismatic guy.

It is sad. My neices will be devastated.

On the one hand I agree with you, Buckytom, but you know, perhaps he with his knowledge and experience was less in danger doing that, than say the dad who gets in the car and doesn't put his seat belt on? Who knows. Its a tough one to draw the line at, in my opinion. Our health service in the UK keeps discussing stopping/reducing treatment for the obese and smokers...but you know, what about those of us who horseride, or do an extreme sport, or who sunbathe, light BBQ grills regularly?

At this point anyway, all I can feel is sadness for a man who inspired young people to look at the world around them with wide eyes and perhaps suggested that "real worlds" are not in concrete blocks and cotton wool.

I am ashamed to admit I never had the pleasure of knowing him until I came across this thread. I looked at the link and I see he was a very special bloke. I echo the words of Wasabi. Yet he will be sorely missed by so many, and his legend will live on. I will start looking for his materials and belatedly, would like to get to know him better. RIP Steve.
