IDAHO (www.incnow.tv) - For her 102nd birthday, Dorothy Custer made a tandem base-jump off of a bridge above the Snake River in Idaho.

After soaring above the river, Dorothy came to picture perfect landing.

It's something many of us would be afraid to do, but for Dorothy, it was no problem!

"It was too short," Dorthy said. "I don't know why it went down so quickly. But that was all right. There's nothing left to do but just live now."

Last year for her 101st birthday, Dorthy zip-lined over the Snake River Canyon.

When she's not thrill-seeking, Dorothy says she tries to sew as much as she can.
