Well - it's getting closer and closer and yup ... I'm getting nervous.

Hello Lynda,

I know what you feel - I've been there, too. However, I'm sure that you come from a long line of bravehearts and your concern for people who are suffering will carry you through this - the biggest mountain to get over always seems to be the waiting.

You know that we're all pulling for you and praying for you, and you also know that if things aren't right, you don't have to jump - so you're really the one in control. I'm sure that if you do jump on the appointed day that it will be brillant and that you will be so proud and happy with yourself - we will, too!


--------------------
Best cheers! Robbie

Thank you everyone for your emails of support smile.gif they are appreciated.

A friend has offered me the money to get the DVD done of my jump as a combined pressie for my Christmas/birthday - so I'll pay the additional bit to get photos as well - that means I'll have some great pictures to share with you all!!

I'm managing with my nerves so far by merely thinking of Saturday as a day ... I've mentally given the day a 'title' but I'm not actually thinking in great detail about what I'll actually be doing ... suspect come Friday night I'll be far less collected about this!

Hi Lynda!

Yes, here, here - you'll do great! Just remember not to eat too much the day of the jump - not that you will want to. wink.gif

Honestly, it will literally fly by (pun intended) and you'll need the DVD to remember it all! rolleyes.gif

We jumped at 10,000 feet and freefell for the first 5000 then the parachute deployed. I'll get some pics from the DVD of the freefall.

Seriously Awesome, Lynda!!!

You not only helped a lot of people who are suffering the affects of Alzheimers, but you had one of the singularly most wonderful and terrorizing experiences a person can have! I'm so proud of you and I know your family is as well. thumbs_up.gif

Not only that, but you look so darn cute in that burgundy-coloured beanie - you should continue wearing it, just for the looks! biggrin.gif I'm happy you were healed-up enough to jump - it looks from the photos that you had a beautiful day to do it, too! And by the way, thanks very much for posting the pictures - they're great!

Now, have you decided what your next death-defying feat will be? Perhaps if I may suggest surfing in Hawaii? I've done the Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu with an instructor (a very nice lady... rolleyes.gif), and you'd have the added benefit of being in paradise! king.gif

Good show!

biggrin.gif Congratulations on your, shall we say, leap of faith?

You're a braver soul than I McDuff.....uhm zeryx. I'm pretty sure if I jumped out of an airplane some of my parts would land before I did.

You look like a fine group and good for you for helping in the fight of a truly nasty disease.

thumbs_up.gif Way to go!

To be honest - I think the most frightening time of the entire jump were the few days leading up to it - I'd really got myself worried but the jump itself was so very different to what I expected. I'd thought that there would be an adrenaline rush, the fear, the all senses stimulation type of rollercoaster ride ... but it was so very different, it was quiet, peaceful and even relaxing - there was no element of fear whatsoever!!! I think that's what's surprised me more than anything - I was not expecting to feel safe and not scared.

Oh - and Robbie - if you're arranging it wink.gif

Hi Lynda!

Again, excellent pix of the jump - you did a great job picking the scenes off the DVD that really showed what it's all about!

As for arranging a surfing charity event, it sounds absolutely splendid! I'll start planning it as soon as I have a spare moment... cool.gif

Have a great week!

Awesome pics Lynda!! I am soo happy that you were able to do it and that it was peaceful instead of scary! It must have been such a great feeling, up in the air and then down on the ground, knowing you did it for a good cause! clap.gif thumbs_up.gif
