Moab was amazing. I think we often take Utah for granted. There is such beauty here that we just don't take advantage of. As we were getting ready to leave on Thursday evening, the skydiving people called us and told us the guys couldn't go skydiving because one of their planes got blown over in the wind. We were very angry. This was the whole reason we were going to Moab. Well, we decided to go and have fun anyway. We loaded up the truck and off we went. Six of us in a truck. What an experience! The first day in Moab we took the 4-wheelers to Onion Creek. What a great ride! You cross the creek 27 times. By the time we were done we were soaking wet. It was 118 degrees down there so the water felt really good.
Thank goodness the skydiving people changed their minds. The guys ended up going skydiving, just not when we had originally planned. We waited all day Saturday for the plane and jumpers to be ready and finally around 3:30 dad and Ryan got to take off. The plane was in great shape! Not ready to fall apart at all. It was very tiny and very scary. I was a little nervous for them, but they seemed just fine with a crappy old plane. I think they were so nervous at that point they didn't care what the plane looked like. After all, they were attached to a parachute. What's the worst that could happen? Well, all 3 guys made it safe to the ground after a short fall from the sky. They were like little screaming blueberries. Ryan, what a funny guy! Ryan and Josh had the same tandem jumper. That guy must have been exhausted! I watched him jump 4 or 5 times that day.
Well, we had a great time. We all lived without injury, only a few bug bites and sunburns.
