... changing into going out clothes. I wanted an earlyish night so headed back to my room where I had the longest/best shower in weeks and hopped into one of the most comfortable beds to settle in for the night. Aj and Steph came in at 1am and then a very drunk Clair stubbled in through our door scaring us. She then stayed for about an hour telling us about her night and how she got lost and she just wanted to find her herd and swim like a turtle from Finding ...

The alarms went off at 4:30 with all of us feeling like it was the middle of the night still. We all clambered out of bed, got dressed into our walking clothes and head to the bus. By this point we all hoped that this walk would be worth it! With it still all feeling to early to be awake we slept on the bus for an hour before reaching the beginning of the hike. It was here that we were told about the dangers of the hike, with one ...

... the parachute and then you land thinking 'let's do that again'. Tonight we have a boat trip on Fearless, I think it's just a guy with a sailing boat and you just give him some cash and he will take you out for a few hours.

We were told what the carvings on the rocks meant but I ...

... done this many a time. However, it was the first time I had ever been towed in reverse in a campervan with an oil-smeared rear window by a quad runner through a gas station forecourt. The guy started towing me at what felt like top speed to me. It was all I could do to avoid the gas pumps and other cars while hoping he wouldn't stop suddenly and I end up running him over. I went a little too close to gas pumps for his comfort and mine. Once we were clear of the ...

Fear is temporary, Achievement is permanent

... at one point and wondered if anyone had been at that height. And then we came into land. All over and back safely on the ground. As I was coming in I got a great view of one of the others whose parachute caught a gust of wind as he landed and he blew halfway across the landing field, causing loads of people to go running after him. I was then able to watch my groups videos as the new Stray group were off jumping. Some were really funny - one of them ...

    Exactly what you want in a motel room, it was clean and tidy with a decent kitchen and a heater which actually warmed the room. We also scored a room with a small gsarden out the back..this was lovely and we wish it had stopped raining so we could use it!
