We can all learn a thing or two about living life to the fullest from 102-year-old Dorothy Custer, who recently celebrated her birthday by base jumping off the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls, Idaho.

This 102-year-old thrill-seeker spoke to local reporters before making the big jump about what keeps her so young, to which she replied, it’s all about not worrying about your age.

“Well I’ve often wondered that too, but I’ve never thought of age. I just went on living and having a good time and doing what was necessary. I don’t think of age right now,” Dorothy Custer told KMTV News.

This isn’t the only extreme birthday Dorothy’s had; last year, she celebrated her 101st birthday by zip-lining for the very first time. We can only wonder what she’ll do for her next birthday!

Watch her amazing story below!
