    Hello :) I promised myself I would do a skydive 2 years ago but unfortunately with ill health and all that it was not possible. I have now booked and paid in full my tandem jump and the doctors have given me the ok to do it :mrgreen: so on the 19th of March I will be jumping out of a plane :D This gives me some time to get a little fitter. I'm very excited to be doing it after all this time.

    I thought I would share my good news :D

    I admire MegaMan for having the courage to have a go at Skydiving, there's no way I could ever contemplate jumping out of a plane! :shock:

    MegaMan I wish you a great experience. Show us the film if you get one. I wish I had the courage that you have - something you will remember all your life.

    Spideog Great films to record a great experience.
