We had been planning on moving along on the trail today, but an opportunity came up that could hardly be missed: skydiving!
Bill is a licenced skydiver with all his own gear, and was planning on going today when he invited everyone at the party to join him! I've already been a few times and didn't think I could fit it into my budget, but Sea Monster hadn't and was thrilled to get an early birthday present from his parents! Including Bill and Amy, seven of us drove down to the skydiving place. Amy and I didn't jump, but took lots of pictures of Sea Monster (of course) and our new friends Rabbit, Meesha, Holmes and Bill. They all tandem jumped (except for Bill), so they got the full experience of free fall and everything! They all seemed to have had a blast. Sea Monster and I are already talking about getting certified ourselves someday!
We got back to the house pretty late and ordered some pizza, and fell asleep watching Fight Club. Our experience at Bill and Amy's has been utterly fantastic, and we're so grateful to them for everything they've done for us! But tomorrow we'll have to get back on the trail for real... two zero days in a row is an awful lot of vacationing from our hiking vacation, so it's time to get back to work and pound out some miles!
