Post by: Ally on March 30, 2009, 09:33:34 AM
Hello forum - I'm new here, though I would say HI, and tell you a bit about me....

I am Ally, RAK from South Africa, trauma amp, 1995.

Doing well thanks to my stunning patient CP, currently using Flex Foot or Runway, MAS socket with Iceross liner, 3R60 knee.  Loving it.

I recognise quite a few "faces" here....

Anyway, that's me - thanks for letting me join you.

Ally

Hi Ally - sounds like you are doing really well as an amputee. I went to your site and saw the pics of you sky diving. My 2 mid 20's daughters have both skydived in tanden like you did. I would like to try it, but I would only do it solo. Have you tried that yet? Did you land on your prosthetic leg? I have heard of fears of hip fractures from a hard landing on one's prosthetic leg. It looks like beautiful country in South Africa. Do you get your prosthetic work done locally? Herb

I have threatened my CP with DEATH if he moves away from me, so yes, I have everything done locally.

Skydiving...........if you do tandem, they take you up to 10,000 feet.  If you do solo, then it's only 3,500 feet and the 'chute opens automatically.  Really, do tandem with a good person.  Shoo...........we did wheelies, backflips......oh my, like I said on my site "too much fun for people like us"!

And NO NO NO NO - no leg!  The tandem person lands you very gracefully (emphasis on YOU - shame, he stressed badly LMFHO).  Truely.

Unlike paragliding.  Eish no.  I got dragged halfway across Africa on landing.  Not fun!   :D  Oh ok.......fun, but never again.

Next is BUNGEE - and the highest one (I believe) is here in Knysna!  Yay me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Ally
I always enjoyed reading your posts, here and else where. Your a (mind the English) no bullshit type of lady. You will love bungy jumping, but you better use a harness and not tie it to your legs. He he.
