Are you that hooked now? I remember when you were getting pumped for your first jump...

diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks...for me, nothing beat the adrenaline rush of that first jump. well, that was until i had my first malfunction. i keep chasing that rush ever since. beats any drug.

you have to be a god damned fool or have incredibly bad luck to die skydiving. i've also taken up scuba diving, which is statistically more dangerous than skydiving.

it's relatively easy...strap on a chute, hitch a ride up to altitude, and jump out. i wish i could find the video of my first jump, but it got lost in the move somewhere. i had a really big 'oh shit' look on my face, but it turns to all grins and laughter when you're heading downhill. YMMV, but i've taken plenty of friends out to jump and not a single one disliked it. many of them bug me to take them back out all the time.

when my pilots license was still active i flew about 10 flights for a friend who needed me to do it last minute.

i had one instructor ride up and down with me because i told him i could give him a bigger gut drop than jumping out of a plane.

he threw up.

i'm a pilot, too, but it's much more fun outside the plane. can't replicate the feeling of tucking in and heading downhill at 150+ with the wind whipping by. parabolas or rolls can't do that. sure, anyone can get sick after enough parabolas, but can ya do this?
