Yes, I had to do it again!  I jumped out of a plane that was 12,000 ft in the air...and it was so amazing!  Ever since we arrived I had been thinking about it over and over but the other day I got sick of thinking and decided that was my day. 

I couldn't talk Brian into jumping with me but he took some good photos.  There were 3 other girls that I jumped with and we all had a great time.  I figured it was safe because the place won the Tourism Award for 2008 so I figured they knew what they were dong.

I told myself I'd never do it again - I did it in college and it wasn't the best experience (bad weather and I landed 2 miles away in a cornfield).  But, after hearing about this skydive place and seeing the area I had to.  It is the most gorgeous landscape.  It was different this time though, because the first place made you learn all about jumping in an hour long class and had to do all this stuff but this time, they barely told you anything - all you had to do was get in the plane and jump out.

I signed up and went one afternoon but the clouds were too thick so I had to reschedule for the next morning.  I figured I'd be scared to death but I had no problem at all - only really excited.  Once in the plane it took 12 minutes to get to 12,000 ft and they scenery was CRAZY beautiful!  For some reason God spent a lot of time on New Zealand.  I can't describe the feeling when the door opened and my guy had me dangling out of the opening - I put my head back and we tumbled out.  I had told him I wanted to do somersaults in the air and glad I did.  We went around and around and I could see the airplane flying away.  It was cold but unbelievable! 

I can say I'll never do it again, but I won't believe myself.  What I can say is I'll never do it in a more beautiful place than New Zealand!
