    Spandougly definitely means good... not sure quite where it came from though...!!!

    I is officially a wimp when it comes to bungy jumping (assuming that's the adrenalin filled type jump you're referring to)... the thought of throwing myself off into the air is just ahhhhhhhhhh... we went and watched the original one a few weeks ago and it didn't endear me to it... although it did convert my other half who is now considering doing it before we leave... sky-diving on the other hand I'm definitely going to do before we leave... just going to wait til there's snow on the mountains so I have a nice view to distract me on the way down

    So you thought you'd go for sky diving which ISN'T throwing yourself off into the air?

    Makes sense

    So you wont jump a few feet attached to a very strong elastic rope, but you'll leap from an airplane from several thousand feet and rely on a parachute opening? Strange fear thing you have going on there Lu

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    There is lots and lots of logic to my fear... honest... let me (try) and explain the weird way my brain works... you see if I was to do a bungy jump then I would have to take a leap off a very high platform and then I'd loose my stomach and feel like I'm falling into the river below... v v v scary and I know I'd never be able to make myself jump... HOWEVER sky-diving on the other hand I am strapped to someone else who would jump out and I'd have no choice but to fall with them and then I'd be really high up in the sky and just feel like I'm flying and floating in the air and miles away from the ground and would gently come down to earth on a parachute... see... it makes sense

    I'm with you on that Lu- I wouldn't bungee jmp either but I think I could sky dive.

    It's the bouncing around on a piece of elstic and dangling in mid air by my feet that does nothing for me.

    I think we should all meet up for a MoveToNZ skydive, I'd be up for that

    That'd be something to put in the newsletter
