Well, duh! This is like the one thing that most people have on their list. I wanted to do this because it scares the bejeezus out of me, and I want to conquer that fear. I mean, really. What's going to scare me after I have jumped out of a plane?

I did this for my 30th birthday! It was amazing - my friend Crystal and I did this and it was unforgettable. I am so glad that I got to share this experience with Crystal before she died. I'll always have that memory.

If you do decide to skydive, invest the money into having the video made. I am as cheap as they get, and I am so pleased that I splurged on the video.

It was a cool experience, definitely something you should do at least once in your life.  A little more expensive than I thought it was going to be, it cost $300 in all.  I'll definitely do it again one day, maybe in a place with a more scenic view, because where I was was just surrounded by farms.  It goes by so fast, so it's hard to appreciate the experience a little, but worth it overall.

I feel like this one is on everyone's bucket list. I had always said I wanted to do it but never seriously thought it would be something I would accomplish. It just seemed so crazy and scary and who in the heck would go with me? Then I met Emrald. This girl is always up for an adventure with me...anything to get our adrenaline pumping. We kind of jokingly mentioned it to her mom and BAM!, the next week we found ourselves in the car, on the way to the Skydiving Center in Alabama, stomachs fluttering, jamming out to Van Halen's Jump on repeat. Almost as soon as our feet touched back down, we were planning our next trip out there. Mother's Day that same year we went again, this time with my mama in tow as well! It is almost a yearly thing now.

 I really want to go skydiving because its an experience unlike any other experience because of the fact that you jump out of a plan and hurling towards the earth at high speeds and pulling a parachute and just floating

It’s always been sort of a joke between my dad and me that the first thing I did when I turned 18 would be to jump out of an airplane. But as my 18th birth m started creeping, up my dad asked me If I was really serious about it, and I said why the hell not. Might as well start of my adulthood with a bang. So on my birthday I woke up early and skipped school to go to work with my dad so we could make it to Dillingham for our noon appointment with Skydive Hawaii. My stomach was in all kinds of knots as the reality of what I was about to do set in. When we got there it was pretty overcast, they told us to go ahead and sign all the forms and watch the safety video, and just wait to see if the weather cleared. So the first thing I did with my new legal powers was to sign a document saying no one would get sued if I died jumping out of a plane.

Unfortunately, the weather only got worse so they said we would have to come back another day, but they reassured us I would still get my free t-shirt for coming in on my birthday, so that was nice. The next time my dad was free, I skipped school again and we went back. This time we got harnessed and loaded into the plane right away, and then off we were, climbing to the jump zone. The nerves from last time were completely gone and all that remained was this uncontainable excitement for the jump. I couldn’t stop smiling and I was practically bouncing in my seat. The flight itself was nice. The weather was perfect and I even saw a pod of humpback whales breaching in the ocean below. Then a buzzer went off and it was go time. I was the last one out the door so I got to watch everyone gets sucked out and disappear into the open air. The cameramen flip up and cling to the outside of the plane like spiders to get the shot of their jumpers, it was all insane. Then it was my turn and I’m hanging over the edge halfway out the door, with this stupid big grin on my face ready to jump out on my own. The anticipation built up to almost unbearable even though I only crouched on the edge for a few seconds really. Then we were falling. And I screamed. It was a scream of pure unadulterated joy, and a little bit of I can’t believe I’m actually F**king doing this.

Hurtling towards the earth at 120mph was nothing, in fact, it's exhilarating. Having all your weight resting on your crotch was less fun. For me, I guess the straps didn't settle on me legs right and I spent half the glide down, once the chute popped, in pain. I tried to enjoy it the best I could, my tandem buddy let me steer for a bit and it was still amazing, but after awhile my thoughts strayed toward "how much longer till we land?"

He did eventually ask me if I was okay and I told about the discomfort, scariest 2 seconds of my life was him reaching to adjust the straps and then me all of a sudden dropping a couple inches in the harness, but the straps rested more on my thighs and OMG did it feel so much better! The rest of the glide down was amazing! We banked right over the beach were this guy was net fishing and waved high then swooped down to land. 

Even with the discomfort to start, I would definitely go again, in fact, I plan to when my sister turns 18.

It was interesting! I'm actually usually terrified of heights, but I decided to do this anyway, because it was on my bucketlist. The plane ride up to appropriate height was terrifying, not because I'm scared of planes, but because I was super nervous about jumping OUT of the plane. When it was our turn, my instructor pushed us out of the plane and let a little yell out. After that, it was very tranquil. The scenery was beautiful, I gotta say. But the ride down was super short! I guess I was expecting more of a thrill or something. Also, my instructor was kind of a dick.

Charity skydive when I was 16, absolutely cacking it going up in the awful plane, but entirely worth it.

Definetly one of the best experiences ever, the adrenaline that rushes through your body can't be compared with any other feeling
