Gravity is a toy – Should we be proud or worried?

Baz and TomO (two peas in a pod?)

After the climbing I have been doing in New Zealand, and the travelling that Janet and TomO have done whilst I was in the mountains, we decided today would be a good opportunity to all relax together in the beautiful town of Queenstown.

 Well, when I said relax, I mean relax in our own special way…

 So we headed to a canyon with a high cliff, and jumped – courtesy of the great team from Shotover Canyon Swing, Queenstown.

TomO - you're insane
TomO – you’re insane

 TomO led the charge with a solo jump; doing a spectacular pin-drop, apparently one of the youngest to do this style.  Janet and I followed shortly after, and in case you are wondering, we thought we’d chuck TomO off first just to make sure it all held together…

What chance did TomO ever have - with this pair as parents

And perhaps because we are just a little “insane” TomO and I took another leap together!

A chip off the “old block” ?

 Yes – perhaps, I’m just not sure whether I should be proud or just a little bit worried…

Oh, don’t  worry, we’re very proud (and just a tad worried!)

Anyway, pictures speak louder than words…Jumpppppppp!

(Ps: No trying this at home 😉 )

    I remember watching guys like you throw yourselves off the bridge while I was white water sledging on the river below. You might want to try that sometime….it’s awesome!

      For sure, looked like fun. I do some white water kayaking, at times, I did the COast to COast race last year which was down the Waimak River….you’ve jut got to love New Zealand for adventure and everything else!! When were you there?

    I’m thinking of starting a petition for a show called the ‘TomO & Baz’ show … They could film your adventures and I could smile over my breakfast as much as I did this morning!
