oky doky, crisis over, I've had my morning coffee at last, and now I can start my day again:D

What a weekend! I didn't get down the coast, didn't go white water rafting, but had a blast anyway. (my friend got her wires crossed - it was a kayak RACE that they were watching .... and I got all excited, oh well).

Spent friday night cheering up a friend who had hurt her back - sat yakking until 3am. Needless to say, a bit of a slow start on saturday, woke up a bit late, then charged up into the mountains hoping for some fun on the water. Negotiated some horrendous terrain in my little car, got there, discovered there was to be no paddling for me. Never mind, an ice cold beer in hand, I enjoyed the view - paddlers have GORGEOUS upper bodies .... yummmm

Saturday night, went to see Landscape Prayers at some little pub in the middle of nowhere. All the leftover hippies came out of the woodwork - turned out to be a very humorous evening - my word but those farmers can DRINK! I ended up having to drive our host home ... he's about 6ft 6 at least, and I had to half drag half carry him to the car, fold him in half to fit him into my car, and find my way back to his farm. Well, I had no clue where we were, and my navigator had passed out. Needless to say, I ended up in the wrong bloody town:S:$

SUnday morning hurt. But stepping out into this beautiful garden in the middle of the Drakensburg, well, it was breathtaking. And hot - I got my tan after all, but I'm afraid, tan lines as well. Sorry guys.

Stunning weekend, but a long drive back last night - lots of mist and windy roads and potholes and goats and stuff ....

So, now that you have sore eyes from reading all that, what did you chaps get up to?

Aside from jumping I decided to ride my bike to Citrusdal. Saturday evening after a beer or two I then decided to demonstrate to the folks how much fun a bike can be. So I planted it for them.
This involves finding a firm piece of ground, getting the rear wheel spinning nicely and gradually digging the rear end in until the bike bottoms out. You then turn off the ignition and nonchalantly walk away leaving the bike standing there by itself all wreathed in smoke. Very funny........I will also be needing a new back tyre soon :D

No [:/]. My neck has been bothering me for the past five weeks - it's slowly getting better, but I don't want to chance anything just yet.

How was yours? I see you injured your ankle. Strange how we always injure ourselves with everything but skydiving :P.

Ok so instead of inane banter lets get a topic rolling.

THE LUCKIEST ESCAPE YOU HAVE EVER SEEN OR BEEN PART OF.

Here is mine....something I saw.

A chap is busy inside a pressure vessel (Large steel tank) He is busy inside cutting holes with a cutting torch.
It is a hot summer day and very hot work so he leans out of the tank and asks a chap nearby to put an air hose in the tank to help cool it.
This silly man cannot find a handy air hose but he can find an oxygen hose so he uses that instead.

5 minutes later ....KaBOOOOOOM the oxygen being pumped into the tank is detonated by the torch flame. The guy doing the cutting is blown straight out of the hole he has just made and sails half way across the workshop.
Damage:
Singed hair, ringing ears and a few bruises.:S

Oh and one black eye, broken nose and a missing tooth. (That is what happend to the idiot after Lucky Boy recovered his wits):ph34r:

Well, friday my roommate invited his friends from his hometown for a house warming party. Heavy drinking.

Then saturday, he invited another bunch of friends for another party. More heavy drinking.

Now, some weekend we should invite our mutual friends from school to a house warming party.

And then I should invite my skydiving buddies for a similar party.

A slight whistling noise can be heard from my liver already...

BTW, it was fun visiting the US(thread), but there really is no place like home.;)

This weekend.

There we were, barrelling along a very dark road in the middle of nowhere at somewhere around 4am, when my passenger decided he needed to puke.
Well, he kindly opened the door first, but forgot to ask me to pull over.
I grab a handful of shirt, to yank him back inside the car. He's not a small chap, so I wasn't terribly successful (thank goodness for seatbelts). At just that moment, a buck decides to run across the road.
Fortunately I hadn't had too much to drink (being the driver), I had slowed down, and the buck was a fast runner, but I did have to swerve, door swinging crazily in the breeze, passenger sending puke all over the place. I missed it by millimetres.
Said passenger just gave me a sheepish look when I yelled at him and promptly passed out again. My legs had turned to jelly, so I parked on the side of the road and had a ciggie before moving on.

And then there's the time I did a back loop off the back of a 4x4 and walked away with only a few roasties ....

and the time ... okay, so I am accident prone ....:S
