Off I go
Oh my lord, oh my lord, I did the Shotover Canyon Swing today....twice, basically this invovles going off a platform at the top of the Canyon, in a harness, you freefall for at least 60 metres before the wire kicks in, the only difference between this and a bung is you swing on this and a bungee you bounce at the end of it, 1st time I went backwards and video'd myself, will bore you all with this dont worry and second one was called Gimp Boy, they suspended me over the Canyon head first, before releasing me like a pin into the Canyon, was on such a high from the first one had to do it twice, got some wicked wicked pics, my heart must of been punding for at least an hour afterwards! will get pics on here soon, and straight after I did the Shotover JetBoat through the Canyon, this is without a doubt one of the most scary things ever, they drive these speed boats through the canyons at extremely high speed missing the sides and rocks by millimetres, then chuck in 360 degree spins all over the place, scary rather than a thrill, would rather chuck myself into a big open space, definately getting a kick from these!

Do you think I'll be able to convince Martina to do that? I sure hope so otherwise she'll just be watching me!
