Skydiving

Somebody at work recently asked if I’d ever been Skydiving, and I have, somewhere around my 19th birthday.

Why?

This was for my friends 18th Birthday, so when he suggested it, I was all for it. Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane is one of those things that many people consider a fear.

Would I Do It Again?

Yes, but it’s very expensive per second and takes a lot of prep time. But, as I say in the video, yeah!

I’d probably get the video again too. That said, even if getting licensed and getting my own chute gets rid of some of the cost inhibitions, I don’t see myself doing it too regularly.

Got The Video to Prove It!

Skydiving definitely provides a rush, as you’ll be able to tell by my ‘out of it’ answers in the video after I landed.

I went with Skydive Atlanta which is just a short drive south of Atlanta. It took about half of a day really. The instruction was good, but as beginners you basically have to ride tandem to know when to open your parachute and land safely.
