    My Dad and I decided to go skydiving for the first time this weekend. What a rush! It's the most insane feeling leaping from an airplane and free falling at 120 mph. I'm so glad we did it because I'm ready to go back asap! We had a cameraman go up with us and take video and stills of my jump. Here's the video on YouTube.

    Thanks guys! It was so totally rad. I was iffy on the whole situation for a few weeks, but decided to schedule a few days before the actual jump. I'm already planning my next two tandems, then I can move onto instructor assisted freefalls and wear my own chute!

    BTW, sorry about my camera shyness :eek: lol

    LOL! It really was an awesome experience. I was thinking about getting the video because I figured this would be my only jump because it would scare the crap out of me so bad. It seems it's lit a fire in me though :D
    Thx dude! It definitely was. I'm still stoked about it. Actually just posted my Hobie kayak for sale so I can put the money towards this!

    Here are a few of the stills. This is when they opened the door when we were getting ready to jump and I guess I realized what I was about to do.

    Doesn't the expression in the first pic translate as "Oh fuck, this is stupid?".

    Haha. Something like that had to be going through my mind! That actually turned out to be one of my favorite pics :D
    LOL. Thx man. I've got to order a set of tinted goggles for my next jumps so this won't happen again :cool:
