Why? “Because it’s a new adventure.” What other reason did she need at 93?! None! And I know from experience it was worth it!
Hot diggity dog! This is the kind of human being we should all strive to be! Adventurous and experimental! Here we come life. Hope you’re ready for us.
14,000 feet of glory! Say BoooYAH!
Woman Skydives to Celebrate 93rd Birthday
Mon Aug 30, 6:24 PM ET
CALDWELL, Idaho – A woman who has six children, 35 grandchildren, 75 great-grandchildren and 10 great, great-grandchildren jumped from an airplane to celebrate her 93rd birthday.
“Because it’s a new adventure,” said Luree Kohtz.
After seeing a videotape of her great-granddaughter doing the same thing, Kohtz set her mind to skydive in Caldwell. Her age wasn’t a concern, she said.
Thirteen cars full of family and friends watched the jump Saturday.
Age hasn’t slowed down Kohtz, who celebrated her 91st birthday by riding the automated bucking bronco at the Cassia County Fair.
“She kept on telling the guy to speed it up,” said John Price, a grandson-in-law. “She got so mad ’cause he wouldn’t do it.”
Kohtz is tight lipped about plans for her next birthday.
“I’ll have to wait and see if I have one,” she said.
But she’s got more adventures in store. She hopes to be in Egypt for Christmas of 2005 and visit Scotland the following September.
