Yepp we did it!
We skydived from 15000ft ( 4600m ) over Queenstown today 😊
It is the only time I got an upgrade and did not really want it. I was supposed to do 12000ft but they mixed up our bookings so I got an extra 3000ft for free.
It was amazing, scary, terrifying, cool and easy!
Stephen went up first, I wanted to go first but as I said they mixed up our bookings. He went first and did his skydive while I was with Henry. Stephen loves these sorts of things so he really enjoyed it.
Then it was me and I do not love these sorts of things so I had to talk myself into it a lot.
My instructor Nick was pretty cool and he just calmed me down. So, we got on the plane and by this point I thought we were doing a 12000ft jump. As the plane leaves the ground Chris tells me that we are doing a 15000ft skydive. No biggie!
We sit in the plane and opens the door at 12000 ft and let those people off then close the door and keep going up. At 15000ft he pushes me forward and saying lets go and out we fall.
It was crazy scary! I think my eyes were closed for the first few seconds and when he opens the parachute all goes quiet and you’re kind of floating down towards the ground.
And a few seconds later you land.
It is over before you know it.
Was it amazing? Yes, will I do it again No!
Would Stephen do it again? Yes!
