Yep, as opposed to the others where Moppie is trying to keep a straight face! Heck, I'd probably be screaming my head off the second I exit the plane! Then again, Moppie's smile might be a smile of joy being that he is on terra firma! .. notice the shaking legs...?

Abseil, yes... bungy, maybe... jumping out of a plane.... no... no way unless my life depended on it! Besides, insurance clauses doesn't cover a mishap -- if and when it happens... my poor wife and kids will have a fit!

do i see another abseil victi... i mean buddy here!

Im abseiling tomorrow actually, going back to the Bridal Veil falls :D

Aswome mate, Ill try and get them tomorrow, depends when i get out of work.

I'v done a bit of thrill seeking before, a fair bit of abseiling in school/scouts, 4 bungee jumps, 12.5hrs of pilot training including 2 solo flights, some stunt flying in the back of a Pitts Special and lots of Motorsport.
So while I was excited about it, I wasn't nervous. :)

What would be cool is doing it reverse.. being flung up at great speed from a glorified super-trampoline hoping to be on target as a aeroplane's door goes by at x_thousand feet at x_hundred miles per hour.. now that would necessitate a nappy.
