On Sunday I watched in fascination as Felix Baumgartner jumped out of a capsule at the edge of space. I wondered if I could do something similar so I've started training.
To begin, I jumped up onto this planter thingie in our complex. It's easily twice my height so I thought this would be a good place to start.
Pippen has kindly agreed to be my training partner and as we get closer to the launch site, he goes over the launch sequence with me.
Things start to speed up... we're getting closer.... the acceleration rate needs to be just right or a number of things could go wrong!
And... I'M OFF!!!!
The landing is successful!
Pippen has checked the record books and I now hold the free fall record in our complex! Alas, I did not break the sound barrier... this time...
