Skydiving – The Video!!

This is the last of the skydiving posts, I promise. Then back to that thing called running.

I’m free fallin’:

For the full, lengthy narrative on the experience, go HERE.

I think this video (below) should win an academy award. And not just because I love AC/DC. If you don’t want to watch the whole thing, go right to:

2:40: Jumping out

4:10: Nice shot of my 43 year old neck ligaments. Shut Up and Run or a chicken?

5:31: Landing and cussing and kissing.

Have at it.

  2. So you're in the Mile-Hi club then?
    And wait no helmet? Not that one would do any good.

  6. SO COOL!!! You are a bad a$$!!! The neck ligaments are the cherry on top! However your voice threw me off... I was thinking you would sound more like the voice in my head!

  10. I agree with Brooke - it's always surprising when you hear someone for the first time (I recently heard an old audio file of myself and had to think "yeah, I guess that's me").

    And Teamarcia's right, too. If the expert's wearing a hemet, I'd be wearing one too.

  20. Oh and I think I forgot to add, my hubby bought me my skydiving experience back when we were dating . . . right after I got laid off from my job . . . not sure how he thought not having health insurance and jumping out of a plane was a good thing but it did get my mind off my worries! HA
