Better you than me! I would've been scared to even get on such a small plane!

Seriously though, you looked like you were having a blast! Congratulations!

OH WOW!! I've always wanted to try that but have been to afraid!

I didn't realize it took so long to actually get to the ground. I thought you would see the ground rushing up, but it's not like that at all!

Who was the cutie you were strapped to?!

I want to know as well! Seriously, that is AWESOME!!! I would love to go hang-gliding, but that seems so much safer. DH is dying to go skydiving, but I was always too much of a chicken. Maybe I'll change my mind now.

So, who wa taking the video? Or was that part of the package deal?

OMG! You looked like you loved it! That is something I will never do - I can't even imagine jumping out the door of a plane! It was slower than I imagined too, although I'm sure you were hurtling down. Good for you for doing something fun and crazy.

That was just beautiful! I didnt realzie either it took so long to come down.

I also didnt realize how long you would free fall (without just dropping) before the first shute came out. What was the difference between the first and 2nd shute (I mean what was the purpose of the 2) Was it just how much it would allow you to guide without dropping?

What a feeling that must have been!!

The guy's name was Brandon. He was really nice and very good at getting back on the ground safely

The first chute was to slow us down and stabilize us during the free fall. It slowed us down to 120mph. The free fall lasted about 30 seconds and we fell a mile. It was so awesome!!!!!!

The video cost extra but IMO was totally worth it. The chick that did the video did a fantastic job! She actually climbed out on the wing strut of the little Cessna airplane and filmed the jump and jumped at the same time we did.

It wasn't too bad actually. It was pretty apparent that I was going to have to be comfortable with him when he was tightening the straps between my legs When he joined our harnesses in the plane, it was weird because we were strapped so tightly together. I could feel him breathing. All our movement had to be as a team. He smelled pretty good though so I didn't mind. He was soft to land on which was also nice

Holy smoke! You could not even pay me enough money to EVER do that

Good for you though! That view was absolutely spectacular! I'll have to show that to my dad. He jumped out of airplanes in Vietnam and would have loved to do it again one more time. His heart problems keep him from doing so now. He will be so jealous!
