Cool stats 8-) Can't believe you're 42! Your milk round must be easy ;)

Goodun Fred!

There's something strange about DW fans... they seem to look years younger than the number they write down....... random magic leaking out of the books perhaps?

Was that your first parachute jump and will you do it again?

Yes, that was my first jump. Well, I did another static line jump a month or two later but then decided that it would be very much pushing my luck for somebody as scatty as me to do any more solo jumps so I let the RAPS course lapse... I did do another jump later, but it was tandem that time. The freefall was bloody intense. :eek: :D But I loved my first jump, and walking away from it alive was really lovely. :lol:

I probably will do another tandem jump some time. :)

The aforementioned cat, probably. Or the dog, which might have been put up to it by the cat.
