:wave: Hey all - hope you've all had fabby starts to your bank holiday weekends...

I certainly have - anyone remeber this thread?

Well I finally did my skydive this afternoon - jumped from 10,000 feet out of a plane :hyper: and it was amazing. I highly recommend it to all you adrenalin junkies out there - don't forget, you can do it to raise money for YouthNet too :)

I'd also like to say a big thanks to all you guys who sponsored me back in February. This is actually the third time I'd been to the airfield - so third time lucky as they say :D I've got a roll of film to develop tomorrow -so I'll post some piccies asap (I look like a right egg head with the hat on!)

    I'm proud of you Helen! I think it's a real achievement, definately one you can look back on when you're 50. Well done! And for a good cause too ;)

    I shit my self going on rides at chessington, you will not see me jump out of a plane.

    O/T, did anyone see that 90y/o women skydive?

    no way could i jump out of a plane ...i'm nervous enough flying ...jumping? ...not a chance in hell.
    if the cops want any information ...any ...all they have to do is put a chute on me and tell me i have to talk or jump ....i'll tell ya everything ....everything!

    That's good! :thumb:

    If I was to do something of the sort, I think I'd prefer bunjie-jumping.

    ETA: Was it one of those naked sky-diving things? :p

    I've never skydived so I don't know what that is like, but I was once pumped full of adrenalin at the doctors and that was truly wonderful.
