Whilst in Taupo we were feeling rather adventurous and took advantage of the best place to skydive in NZ as the views are spectacular.
We planned on doing the jump from 12,000 feet and not buy any of the photos or dvd, but we were soon convinced that 15,000 feet was the way to go as the freefall was longer and of course we had to have photographic evidence!! Well worth it.
The most intense rush of our lives! Clay was Mr. Cool Cucumber, until we hit about 13,000 feet....then it him too! So scary approaching that door and just falling out of it. The freefall was the most amazing/petrifying experience. Once you realize that you probably aren't going to die you look around and enjoy the view. As soon as the chute was pulled I wanted to do it again, and we hadn't even landed yet! We will have to show everyone the dvd upon our return...it's hilarious! Recomend everyone do this at least once in your life.
The next day we decided to go mountain biking to Huka Falls. Didn't know we were siging up for a full on mountain bike trail along some deadly slopes...so
