skydiving...

Post by spaceace »

yesterday i made my first skydiving jump. i jumped from 8000' with 2 instructors... one on each side. freefall was from 8000' to 4000' then one of the instructors pulled my chute and then they both let go for a solo decent. this was awesome and everyone should try it at least once :D

i'm wanting to go again :twisted:

Sounds like a fun experience Spaceace. My body won't let me go jumping though mainly due to to many broken bones and a couple dislocations.

Knows, I have just enough. Enough to make me content, enough to make me want a little more, but if I don't get it, I'll be OK.

i actually didn't find it hard on the body at all. quite relaxing in fact. and also, on the landing, it was gentle enough that i hit it standing the first try :D
