This place was amazing for the price! A great deal that came with breakfast, en suite bathrooms, clean rooms, great customer service, and a nice looking facility, as well.

Which, since I'm now plummeting downward was not going to happen. I remember screaming, though I don't on the video. I remember being the scream being cut off, and being unable to make a sound the rest of the way, hearing the wind rushing, seeing the river getting bigger.
