I wish I were brave enough to take a ride. But I have a thing about heights.
Poochee in my younger days I made two parachute jumps. The only way to overcome fear is to just do it. Maybe I was young and foolish, but I had been around those jumping and I witnessed how safe the sport was. Plus I trusted my then boyfriend & later husband. He was my jump master. I was glad I did it. Go for it. :eek: U can do it. (y)

Poochee,
It is not being brave. It is just facing fear. It is training. As a young child I would sit on my front porch and from the military base I would see the parachute jumpers and I wanted to do it never ever expecting I would have the opportunity and when I did I seized the moment and so glad I did. I have not been in a balloon, but would like- too. I must say I will not bungee jump off a bridge or rock. I have my limits. ;-(

Maybe, this is because I'm not that old..... but what I believe in is that..... You can do anything at any age if you have got enough nerves.
Though, I never tried an adventure sport myself, I'd like to try them out someday! And I don't care how old I am then! ;)
Anyone fancy joining me? :D

Its better to conquer when younger. I can say that parachute jumping was one of the best experiences I have ever experienced.I witnessed how safety conscious the club was. Sadly we lost an experience jumper, but it was due to competition over ruled good common sense. I tried water skiing, but never was able to get up...something about all the water rushing at my face and I love swimming. I don't down hill ski, but I do go sleighing. Can't afford to break anything. We can't let fear over rule us. :):D

I never jumped, but I did have the opportunity to climb a 250 ft antenna tower to change the lamps on the top. A slight breeze and the tower sways about 3-5 ft. Quite a ride. When I went up with a friend he handed me two lamps and he carried two. I asked how many lamps are up there, he said two. I asked why are we carrying four. He then asked me if I would like to climb back down then up again in case we dropped one. LOL. I totally enjoyed that trip up the "spear".It was a 12" triangle with 6 guy wires to support it.
