Sky Divin' - My Awesome Adventure [videographed for posterity]
Had gone skydiving a while back - it was the most amazing experience of my life!
The moment of the jump just 2 secs of being scared then a pure adrenaline rush. Strongly recommended for everyone. Better than any drug I'm sure...
I'm going to start taking lessons so I can do it alone, the first jump is always with an instructor strapped to your back... makes it less scary. Just waiting for my MBA to get over!
When you jump out of the plane face forward, there is a whooshing sound and pressure, your ears are blocked and you are going absolutely crazy with pure energy, pure excitement. Your heart is pounding and your head throbbing with excitement. And then when the chute goes up and you straighten into position it's like time shifts and the atmosphere changes, the speed melts into a wonderful stillness, the mad rush settles into a slow roll and you’re up above the fu**ing clouds.
It is awesome
