This year has been a rollercoaster - brain surgery, trip of a lifetime, new job, family reunions, and so many special little moments. I'm about to turn 31 on Monday, so I am closing 30 with a bang. This year has been about doing this that scare me and this weekend fit that theme to a T.
This weekend, I went bungee jumping!
It was a beautiful hour long drive up to Amboy, WA. We parked in a lot in the middle of the woods and followed the signs through a lovely path before arriving at the bungee bridge. It overlooked a breathtaking scene of trees and rolling river below.
I walked up, signed some terrifying paperwork that may or may not have jokingly asked if I was an organ donor and if I would prefer cremation or traditional burial...but still, I had my eye on the prize! I was doin it!
There was a quick safety run down to teach us what not to do and then we suited up with our harnesses.
I watched a few people go first and I tried to ease my nerves and just stay calm. When it was my turn, the team helped get me set up, reminded me of the safety details, and told me that I need to be sure I commit and just get over that ledge and do it without any hesitation.
I stepped over the ledge and I just did it!
It was terrifying. I definitely panicked in the first few seconds of the free fall, but then I hit the bounce and I realized I was still ok and I breathed out.
It was a really quick jump, but it was amazing. I am so glad I did something so scary that I've always wanted to do! It's a perfectly exciting way to end my 30th year.
What do you think? Would you go bungee jumping?
