Experiencing Sky Screamer Bungy by Mike and Charles

Mike and Charles go into orbit on a Bungy ride in New Zealand. Not your typical hang by your ankle bungy. There is a set of three connected seats which are strapped to huge rubber bands. You shoot straight into the air while reaching speeds of 120MPH, 200 KMH. Various quotes from the audio recording, "Holy Mackerel!" and "Felt like you were being shot out of a cannon".

Waiheke Island, New Zealand

On New Zealand's Waiheke Island, Mike, Sheri and Roxanne enjoy the fruits of the world class Stoneridge Vineyard and Cafe after a 20k ferry ride from Auckland. If you aren't hungry and thirsty after hearing the menu and wine description, you can't have been listening.

My favorite way to experience a place is to walk and eat and that is exactly what we did. Friends for 25 years, it was pretty amazing to meet in New Zealand and to have an incredible day together. I know from the Sendero GPS that we walked 8K. Many places are now marked on the roads, towns and beaches of Waiheke as well as other islands we passed in route from Auckland on the ferry. We lucked into a day of sunshine between rain storms. The highlight of the day was a fantastic meal where the excellent food was matched only by the fantastic company. How fortunate can one be?
