I get a little woozie just looking at those pictures. O_O

Looks like you had a blast, though. Congrats on your soon-to-be certification.

Good for you for doing this. But really, isn't falling from horseback enough excitement? You have to do it from miles above the hard, hard ground? LOL

Looks like you're having a blast.

are you one of those people that love it when you get that pit in the middle of your stomache like oh crap? Lol this looks like fun, but I dread that filling and I know if going down a hill on a rollercoaster gives it to me then I know skydiving sure would. Lol
