    It's getting close! About 10 days ago I flew to Christchurch to meet up with the rest of the crew. I met up with Michael from Canterbury Ballooning, Wayne from COBi Digital who has taken the lead on filming the event, and Rob the rigger. Wed nutted out some of the finer details about safety, people, requirements set out by Guinness World Records, balloons and photography. I also became recurrent in skydiving, doing a number of jumps from various heights at skydiving kiwis in Ashburton. Was awesome to get back in the air again! So now we just hope like mad that the weather plays the game on the day and until then, I keep practicing trapeze and working on my flexibility around my shift work. Busy times but good times. Thank you for your support and Donations to Big Brothers Big Sisters NZ...they do an amazing job at guiding and mentoring youth to find their passion in life.

    Time is rolling on - just 2 months until we do this!

    I've been training hard around my work shifts and have put together a routine that satisfies the Guinness World Record requirement for a 5 minute routine. Tomorrow I will practice this with the harness on.

    A little article appeared on Stuff not long ago - feel free to check it out: http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/72364845/anna-cochrane-to-attempt-record-breaking-trapeze-act-suspended-from-a-hot-air-balloon

    Thank you all for your donations - I'm excited to see how much we can raise for this worthy organisation.
