  Did it in Lodi, CA.  Been there, done that - not doing it again.  Went up in an old 1952 plane (and I think the pilot was just as old).  Figured it was safer jumping out than landing in it.  Instructors were nice.  Did it tandum, so they "roll" you out.  Free fall for 60 seconds.  Prayed the shoot opened.  Glad I did it, especially since I'm afraid of hights.

Ever since I was a kid I was a thrill seeker always looking for the next best thing to challenge myself. Obviously skydiving is something challenging that should be on everyone's bucket list (or life list as I prefer to call it...bucket list sounds so morbid) thus it was at the top of my list.

When I was in Florida on a Cross-country USA Roadtrip with my mates, I decided to sign up for a spontaneous skydive. There I was at the skydiving place the next day getting ready to jump out of an airplane at 18,000 ft and I was not nervous one bit. Actually I thought the whole experience was bit lame. It's not that I didn't enjoy it, but it wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I was hoping to get the same adrenaline rush that you get from bungee jumping or riding on a rollercoaster - you know, that feeling of having your heart in your throat - but it wasn't like that at all. It's hard to explain the feeling but you feel weightless in a way. You are moving so fast but the air hits you really hard that it feels like you are just floating in one space. Which probably would have been cool is I wasn't wearing shorts and my harness wasn't chafing my thighs...so maybe that was the bigger problem.

Either way, I checked this bad boy off my bucket list...and would I do it again? Yeah I probably would...but I would NOT wear shorts.

14,000 feet in the air in Southern Maine where you could see both the mountains and the ocean.  60 second freefall.  Probably the most exhilerating 60 seconds of my life.  Unfortunately, I did this before getting my GoPro, so I do not have video of the event.

Jumping 10,000 ft out of a flying object isn't exactly comforting. But while it's possibly one of the most terrifying things you can do it's also so surreal. Falling through the air was not how I expected it to be, I didn't even feel like I was falling until I was almost touching the ground. There was no time for panic though just prayers that I wouldn't be sick.

Im afraid of heights so this was a massive challenge for me. To make it more difficult I am quite over weight and weighted 2 stones or 12.5 kg more than what was allowed needing to lose a lot of weight. I lost the weight and I completing the jump! Oh ye!
