I survived the Sky Jump!

It may not be bungy jumping, but it sure is close! Auckland's Sky Tower sky jump is a base jump by wire - assisting your fall from the tallest building in the southern hemisphere (192 meters (630 feet)) at 85 km (137 mph)!!!!

Look for me at the very top! When I first jump from the walkway, the wire stops me from the free fall to take a picture before I drop. Once the picture's taken, the wire lets go and I fall at a rate of 137 mph! It may look slow, but remember that you're watching me fall from a VERY high height (so what looks like very slow is in fact very fast!)
