The big news

So it's now 12 hours until Kim & I try something that's scaring the heck out of us, but we've decided that it's something that we've got to do. We're going to try plane bungee jumping. Since we've never jumped before we'll be tethered to an instructor, we jump out of the plane attached to a bungee, the cord pulls us back up, then when we get to the apex the instructor cuts the cord and it turns into a sky dive, where we parachute down to the ground. It's more extreme than anything that we've ever done, but we figure that it'll be a lot of fun (asuming that we don't have heart attacks on the way down), and it'll prove that we're still, at least slightly, young. We've looked into this activity, and this company has been doing this for a year now, with no injuries. We have to get there at 12.30 for an hour of instruction and safety demonstrations, then the plane takes off at 1.30... If everything goes well we'll be back at the B&B by 5.30, most likely looking for a stiff drink to stop our shaking.

Now, when I ask on Monday "how was your weekend?" I expect one heck of a story!

April fools...

Imagine the logistics of a bungee jump from a moving plane ;)
