I Jumped! ~ Wordless Wednesday

As you may remember, I have been raising money for the organisation Support for Mums, asking people to sponsor me to jump out of a plane, 14,000 feet in the air and hurtle back down to earth.

Well, Saturday the 30th was the big day! Strangely I had been quite calm in the lead up to the jump, I actually think my husband was more nervous than I was.

That is, until I started getting strapped into my harness… HOLY CRAP, WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING???

I think the tears started welling at about the 7,000 feet mark… then, at 14,000 feet, that little door opened, and people started disappearing out of it… I confess, I have NEVER been that terrified in my life. There was no backing out now though, and out I went!

I can’t even explain how I felt… it was the most terrifying, crazy, surreal thing I have ever experienced. I think the video and photos sum up my emotions pretty accurately (and yes, I screamed the entire free fall, at 200kmph)

Did I enjoy it? Uum, not really! Truthfully, I was just so, so scared! Unfortunately my tandem partner wasn’t the greatest, and didn’t do much  anything to put me at ease, which was a real shame. When my husband hugged me after I landed, he could still feel my body shaking from fear!

Do I regret it? HELL NO. Aside from it being a once in a life time, bucket-list kind of experience, I am so proud to say, that to date, I have raised $1140 for Support for Mums!!

Would I do it again? Err..no thank you.

So I really want to make this count! My fundraisng page is open for another few weeks, so if you would like to donate a few dollars, and boost up my final donation to Support For Mums, that would be fabulous. You can donate HERE.
