The adventure continues.....
The weather was now dry and sunny after 24 hours of heavy of rain the day before. We reported to The Station (Queenstown Extreme Sports HQ), boarded a bus and headed off into the wilderness, 30 minutes later and up a couple of crazy dirt tracks we arrive at the summit location of the Nevis Swing and Nevis High Wire Bungy, both funnily enough hanging precariously out over the Nevis River gorge.
Ever been to a bungy jump centre?
The "jumpers" and "observers" are fitted into full safety harnesses, briefed (basically look up and dive out) and transported to the bungy jump pod in a tiny little cable car, an experience in itself.
Not for the faint of heart!
Simon comments - "An old "war wound" in my left leg is now giving me real concern, an unexplainable and uncontrollable vibrating feeling (spreading to my right leg as well) and I'm beginning to think that I might have to pull out"....."hum apparently" not says loving wife......remember the one - "life's a bitch and then you....????"
You can clearly see that this terrifying experience has instantly turned my moustache grey and the hair fall out of the top of my head......
You are all now invited to help a really worthwhile cause and make a donation to St Michael's Hospice (Hereford).......Please.
Go to - justgiving.com and search for Simon Davey - Nevis High Wire Bungy Jump. The current total is listed.
Thanks to all those individuals who had enough faith to donate BEFORE the event. So a big THANK YOU to you all.
