    I went skydiving on Sunday, it was incredible. It was my first time, so I had to do a tandem, but you can barely tell there's anyone strapped to you when you're free-falling. We jumped at 14,000 feet and free-falled for 60 seconds before we popped the chute...luckily it opened. Anyways, just thought I'd tell all you people that haven't done it that you're missing out, unless you're chute doesn't open, then I guess you're not missing out. I definitely am going to do it again sometime soon.

    Sounds awesome. I have always wanted to go skydiving, but I dont think there are that many places who do it here in NC. Oh well.

    Next time you are 1/2 way between home and work, stop your truck, roll down the window, stick your head out the window, then look up /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Plenty of space up there for skydiving /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Better yet, in a couple years you can sign up to be a skydiving guinie pig for your uncle sam. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
