Bungy jumping in Thailand…
seems like really is a risky ill-will choice to make but we did it anyway. Cheap thrills….or so we say. Live for the moment kind of thing. Ya know?
- I had to jump first because Linda decided to take not one but two shots of grey goose while I ascended the lift. Then after my jump, she had to take two more to calm her nerves. She somehow managed to stay sober despite having four shots in 10 minutes.
-I blabbered to the two Thai guys that accompanied me on the lift. I don’t even remember what the hell I rambled on about but I am willing to bet they didn’t understand a word I said.
-It took me a good 10 minutes to jump because when you are up that high, you wonder what in the world are you doing jumping off a metal platform to plunge 500 feet into a murky oversized man-made pond to your death. I didn’t really jump but more willingly shoved by the camera guy.
-Linda took really long too too and I totally understood her freaking out AFTER I had jumped. We’re such adrenaline junkies. Lived off that high for a few days afterwards.
After signing our life away on a sheet of paper, we were led to a scale to get our weight. Then, we got wrapped up in our ankle gear and hoppity hop to the metal platform that took you up 500 feet.
The roller coaster stomach drop feeling…all the way. Fuck fear! Try bungy jumping!
