Life Experience - Bungee Jumping

Oh My...exhilirating, heart pounding, nervousness, sweat racing down my head.  What was I thinking! Standing 50 meters above ground all suspended by a single bungee cord.  I was atop the structure as shown in the picture below with the guide in my earlier post "still in Bundang".  He says "breathe, is this your first time?" Yes, I replied.  "Ok, take your time, see the coffee house" as he pointed..."When your ready, jump towards that"... I hesitated three times.  Then alas, I said "WTF...I am already here and strapped", I ran and jumped.  As I ran I knew there was no way to turn back, too much velocity to hold my 95K body mass.  What a rush!  leave your worries behind, all is lost but you in mid air for that split second and then whoosh, you feel the cord pull on you to ease your fall and up again.

I'd do it again!  For those of who have experienced bungee jumping, share your experiences. I would like to hear what was going through your mind or what was said out loud.

WOW! Sounds like fun :)

The closest thing to bungee jumping that I did was on this ride at the MGM Grand Theme Park in Las Vegas called the "Sky Screamer". The only difference was that you were strapped around your chest and waist instead of your ankles. The view was spectacular going up because you saw most of "the strip" in Las Vegas, but going down was an exhilarating experience indeed! My reaction after I was done? I was just happy to be alive :) LOL!!!

I wouldn't try it unless pressured into that position. I couldn't imagine looking down man, I bet you felt a little lighter after that because all of the work related stress went out the window lol. Any pictures...
