Aging but Dangerous Women Leap from Plane, Drink Martinis


Each year, a group of Aging But Dangerous women gather on an airfield in central Minnesota to jump out of a perfectly good airplane and celebrate life afterwards with a pitcher of martinis. The fearless leader of Aging But Dangerous is Jean Ketcham, a 78 year old former businesswoman and radio host. Details are below.

I thought the annual Martini Jump might be of interest to your readers.

    Aging But Dangerous women, I love the name and idea behind your group. I enjoy martinis too but will pass on the sky diving although this sounds like a lot of fun. Keep up the good work!
