{we're skippin breakfast and goin straight to launch}

if i were the all-caps type, this whole entire post would be capitalized TO THE MAX.

as it is, i will just tell you straight up: i'm yell-talking at you and making lots of extreme hand gestures. 

first, watch these: 





one time, i went repelling off a mountain in montana with jannaya. she got her bangs caught in a carabiner on the way down and just kind of hung up there for a while until they cut them off. and that's probably the closest i've ever come to doing anything like this.

so i was thinking: let's all of us climb a mountain and jump off?

check with your loved ones and get back to me.

  2. if i supply another person for you to land on top of, does that count? i'm not selfless enough.

  3. I used to love repelling until I went off the side of a "hill" here in the middle lands and my belay literally let me down. I landed so much harder than I expected to...to say I yelled at him would be putting it mildly...no soft, cushy landing on that one!

    I cannot even imagine getting my hair caught in the carabiner YIKES.

    So on that note, I believe I will pass this go around. Have fun!

    danielle: oh good. brandi's coming..so..

    brandi: danielle is hoping you can go first and she can land on you? if you don't feel up to it, maybe you could suggest a friend who could fill that role?

  7. I can't even imagine doing something like that. I'm wayyyy too chicken! And that poor girl that got her bangs caught! haha. I've been repelling and it was super fun. Or maybe we can do like a gigantic zipline with harnesses and junk??

  8. ziplines are good too! but really, wouldn't it feel amazing to be literally flying by mountains with no strings attached?? singing "i am like a bird"...

Say anything you want. It doesn't even have to be relevant.
