3… 2… 1… Action: 440 Foot Bungy Jump

Watch and listen as we recount how New Zealand’s highest bungy jump scared the dickens out of Greg and barely raised Ashley’s heart rate.

Greg is up first and is all nerves:

Gravity proved strong on the way down and now that same force is draining all of Greg’s O+ blood to his cranium:

Ashley’s smile is genuine… she has no fear:

Taking in the private canyon views, Ash reflects during the ride back to the gondola:

Learn From Our Footsteps:

1) After coughing up the necessary cash to own our experience on DVD, we regrettably discovered that the disc didn’t contain files that could be copied to computer.  Thus, the video below is taken from this tedious sequence of events: hook up external DVD player, position video camera to computer screen size, record video, save on thumb drive, upload in Internet Cafe to Flickr, post to FOF Blog.  Save yourself these headaches by ensuring that your adventure footage on DVD can in fact be copied onto a computer.  If not, the excursion operator may have an online option.

    Awesome footage. Greg sent me the web address after talking with him at a business outing shortly before the start of the trip. It sounded like a great adventure, so I have followed your progress from time to time (the volcano fall-through became much more real and terrifying when I read about a similar accident on Mt. St. Helens last week with much darker results). Enjoy your trip and safe travels.

    Steve – Thanks for the well wishes and I trust you are navigating frigid Chicago in high spirits. Holy smokes… we just read about the Mount St. Helens hiker who perished last week. The similarities are terrifying. You won't be reading about me climbing a snow covered volcano any time soon!
