    Went sky diving today. Had an absolute blast! dont remember much of the free fall part. it was all a big blur but it was a rush standing on the outside of that plane going 90 mph 12,500 feet in the air. UC Skydiving club made my dream accomplished. Ive always wanted to do this. Start Skydiving in Middletown Ohio has great staff. Very cool people there. Very nice facility.
    I am now working towards my B class license! :D

    i think everyone should do this at least once in their life if they are capable. you have not even lived until you jump out of a plane. very cool experience.

    you should try tandem. you are at least attached to someone who knows what they are doing. you will def. be glad you did it!

    Was that your first jump? That's the way way I would want to do my first jump, free fall with two jump masters on my side. I've done the research, just don't have the cash flow for this yet.

    thanks guys! it was a blast. not going to say i wasnt ready to piss myself when they opened the door of the plane though! haha i was shaking like crazy! well worth it though! and the jumps get cheaper and cheaper the more you do it. (just have to get past the training stuff)
