It's gonna be about 225 or 250 with the conversion exchange.

A little expensive because Queenstown it's one of New Zealand's biggest tourist traps. Very close to one of the areas where LOTR was filmed as well.

I went for $60 and it cost an extra $40 to have another person jump with a camera on her head to video tape the experience.

Yeah, but it was Eugene Oregon and not some outstandingly beautiful place. Also, the tin airplane probably kept the price down. Still easily worth every penny. Not sure what it would cost now, this was back in about 2004.

Do you remember what elevation you were at when you jumped off?

That's a steal. I paid 125 for the jump, and they charged an extra hundred for the DVD of it. I wouldn't pay for the movie, but my mom did for some reason. How many times has anyone watched it? 0.

Great scenery in Maine. You could see the ocean, mountains, forest, and farmland.

We jumped from somewhere between 10,000 and 15,000 feet. The weather started getting shitty and we fell through rain clouds. It was technically illegal for us to do that but we were in the air already.

My advice: The harness killed my junk, so I'd go for compression shorts or briefs to keep your shit in one place.

I'm indeed a white male. I had this name as my gamertag in like 7th grade for my Halo One years when I also had a 6 month phase of wearing Ecko clothes. This name on here is really just a reminder of the jackass I once was. Just something to laugh at myself for haha.

Haha.. yeah man. I'm in New Zealand for only three more months and I kind of have to do it while I'm here. It'd be like going to Canton and not going to the hall of fame, or going to the movies with Pee Wee Herman and not masturb8ing with him.
