An Idaho woman went a step above cake and ice cream to celebrate birthday number 102.

According to KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV, Dorothy Custer’s birthday present from her family was a tandem BASE jump. On her 101st birthday, Dorothy tried zip-lining for the first time.

When asked why she was BASE jumping for her birthday Custer said, “I’ve kind of asked myself that to, I guess probably because I don’t know any better.”
