So I recently started to write out my bucket list. One thing I have always wanted to do was jump out of a plane. Why I have always wanted to do something so crazy is beyond me. When I received a Groupon e-mail for an $85 discount I knew this was now the time!
After signing many, many, many waivers and acknowledging that I could die from skydiving, my instructor, DJ suited me up and we headed to the plane.
I opted for a videographer to document this event so I have proof that I am nuts!
My video man, Ron, was making me laugh!!!
Try walking with another body attached to your back!!!
This is the moment when it really sunk in what I was actually doing!!! The ground was extremely far away. I can't believe there was actually a smile on my face at this moment of my life! I like to keep my blog clean so I will not mention what the voices in my head were saying.
They say if you wanted to know what it is like to fly, this is it!!!!
I love the wind blown look on my facial structure! I really did not enjoy this free fall at all but had to fake it for the camera. Breathing was tricky, plus it was extremely cold out and my face was numb!
We fell slowly to the ground which was still a very long way away! We spun around a few times which was nauseating! I had to ask my instructor not to do that again.
One of the happiest moments in my life was when the chute opened!!! The rest was a piece of cake!
Landing was easy! I was concerned because if my feet were too high or too low the landing may have been messy.
I am so happy to have crossed something off my list! Everything else after this will be a breeze!
