Didn't know what else to say.

I've thought about skydiving a few times, and then I think again and decide against it.

I did tandem before a few years ago with my dad for father's day :)

In some ways it was better than solo because you didn't have to do like 5 hours training, and because you actually got to free-fall. That's because there is a tiny "Drogue" Parachute that helps stabilize you; at the place I went to, solo jumpers jumped out while an instructor threw their already deployed drogue chute after them, hence no free-fall.

Free-fall is amazing btw. Weightless :)

Note: It's chilly depending on when you go :rolleyes: We went on a rainy-ish day and it's cold up there!

Actually we got their guys to jump with us and got video/picture ;)

Well you'll be ok :) besides, you'll probably have to wear a jump suit of some sort .... worst part for me was the dorky leather helmet so you don't whack the tandem guy in the head :P

That's pretty cool, I have to wait another 6 months till I'm 18 but have no intention of going in the winter so it'll really be more like 11 months at least...really excited for it though, and rather jealous of you.

Advice?

I can't offer any real advice, as I haven;t had the chance to skydive yet, but my philosophy is, if my chutes don't deploy, I'm hitting the ground like a human lawn dart. I'd rater be a greasy spot than a quadriplegic.

Nervous yet? :P

Haha last I remember the statistics were something like 1 or 3 in several hundred thousands jumps in a year ended in death if that :P

Don't worry, the other guy will be extra careful because he's strapping his own buttocks in with you :P
