Re: going skydiving

I want to skydive. I would even do it without out the chute, cept I am afraid. But, its not the falling that scares me, its that sudden stop at the end.

Re: going skydiving

lol ok I wasn't going to say anything till after you jumped, here's my story

My girl friend is friends with this couple who got married and decided to get married while sky diving. The groom sky dived all the time, countless times actually so he knew what he was doing. The bride had done it a few times before, so they were okay with it.

So everything was going smoothly, but due to a mishap, the groom's parachute acted funny (I'm pretty vague on the details) and he hit the ground so hard that he broke some discs in his spine and all sorts of stuff happened to him. He was in the hospital for a long time, I don't know if he can walk anymore too.




But in the end, I think I would go sky diving too. It's just something.. I think we all need to experience.

Re: going skydiving

yeah theres more pics, they're just in my friend's camera cause he took most of them with that, so as soon as he sends them to me i'll post them

but yeah seph, they told us all of the horror stories and such, but the instructor i jumped with jumped over 4700 times and was well experienced, it was the best thrill of my life, and i think i'm gonna go back in a couple of weeks

Re: going skydiving

its awesome...we did a free fall that lasted for about 35 seconds, but u don't feel like you are falling, you feel like you are flying

then we pulled the cord, and we were in the air for maybe about 10 minutes, and u could see from new york to philly...it was the best thing i've ever done


just don't forget sunblock, my face is beet red

I guess you had to go tandem, right?

I think that's how they are unless you're certified or something....
