Have you ever jumped out of a plane?

25 11 2006

And not one that is broken in some way, a perfectly functioning plane, and then you just jump out at 1200ft.

I went sky diving today and I can safely say that was one of the coolest things I have ever done. Absolutely amazing! You put on this shockingly sexy jump suit (dripping sarcasm) and harness, cram like 20 people into a glorified hot dog with wings, and then you jump out. I was totally exciting and the only thing I was scared about was the wind ripping my pumas off my feet while free falling (silly I know but I was worried about it none the less. The free fall was aprox 45 seconds (and fucking AWESOME) we dropped from 1200ft to 5000ft and then my instructor opened the chute.

When it we went to jump out of the plane…. there was about a half a second as we tipped out of the plan toward the ground that I thought ooohhh fuuuuck…. but then We were free falling and flying through the air….!!!!

Anyway while really expensive and not something I can afford to do all the time, I would definitely like to go again some time!
