Have you bungee jumped before?

Have you bungee jumped before? How high up were you and did you jump feet first or head first? I jumped when I was 15 years old while on vacation in Panama City Beach, Florida. I jumped 75 feet off of a platform, feet first into an airbag. I have seen some that are on a crane and are 125 feet high and you fall head first. I have not seen the crane jumps in a long time though, so I'm sure if anyone uses those anymore.

I've not bungee jumped, but I saw two people doing it at Queenstown, NZ recently, reputedly the place where bungee jumping was Invented. These folks jumped head first (bungee was tied on their feet) so they were bouncing upside down for a while. They were suspended over a small valley, next to some cable cars coming up and down the skyline lift. There was another one I passed by, near Queenstown but that was off a bridge that was across a large gorge and a river below. Very scenic jump!
