    I recently joined the UC Skydiving club and will be making my first jump next weekend (on mothers day). Def. excited, nervous as hell... but this has been something ive wanted to do. its a bucket list item i need to check off before i die... which hopefully wont be for a long long time.

    whos been before? how was it?

    One of the most natural feelings in the world is to jump off the ramp. just flail wildly and be sure to eat a HUGE breakfast before hand. J/k Truthfully, its awesome. even if your scared of heights.

    I jumped once and loved it. Hard to explain but you don't get the stomach in your thoat feeling when you jump. It was on my bucket list too, next on the list for me is a shark dive :)

    lol thats what i fear. I am a hardcore adrenaline junkie. its expensive as hell too! unlike the other hobbies i do (scuba diving, rock climbing, mountain biking) you cant just buy all your stuff and only have to pay a little bit when you want to go.
