... Theoretically, they were running 350 sheep down the street as preparation for the New Zealand Rural Games. I'm kind of sad that we will miss the Rural games... they have such competitions as speed shearing, gumboot throwing, speed hand milking and coal shoveling. But alas, we will be leaving before they truly begin.
So the 350 sheep only proved to be about 30... and the running was more like walking and cowering... but it was amusing ...
... went back for more, taking it all the way to a five underpants level jump and performing the Gimp Boy Goes To Hollywood. I won't bother explaining what that is, because I did it too in my final costume - the world's cheekiest and wildest cowgirl - and you can see it in the video. I've always said I can ride anything with hair and just to make sure I wouldn't be proven wrong, I took along my own stick pony to ride off the cliff. I didn't fall ...
... were a couple of cool still shots, but not $45 cool. And as far as the video goes, I was not a graceful jumper. I did a bit of a squat before jumping. I am just glad I managed to jump out and not do a pencil jump, because that is what really gives people whiplash. So I decided my go- pro video would have to suffice. Besides, I also got a free t-shirt. For the price of a $275 jump.
I won’t do another bungy jump that big ...

And that’s okay with me. I am not trying to bargain shop when I am doing something where safety is vital.
So we were driven to the jump site. I was allocated into group two. That was perfect. I like to watch at least ...
... and on the fifth run Claire, Margarita, Frederico (an awesome Mexican couple) and I went flying past Sinead. As she admits, she drove like a Granny! I can't believe how much fun it was as I hadn't expected the course to be so good and because you're up in the mountain the backdrop is beautiful. There was about 14 of us doing the Luge altogether and it was great to do it in such a big group. We got the gondola back down and then headed to Ferg Burger a really famous burger ...
