Skydiving has been on my bucket list for years. This year, I made it one of my New Year’s Goals. I don’t waste much time.
It’s Go Time!!!
I didn’t really realize that I was going to be sandwiched between/straddling two other men. Awkward. I am pretty sure I was the only girl, the only tandem skydiver, and only first timer in a plane full of 20 guys. Whatev. It was about a 15 minute ride…the anticipation was a killer.
I know I am really smiley but I was actually super nervous.
The scariest part for me was sitting on the edge. Deep breath…(I was totally praying)
It was FREEZING, and I was surprised how much of a hard time I had breathing. It went by super fast, but also felt like it took a long time…
I call it “floating”…
“By the Word of the Lord the Heavens were made…” Psalm 33:6
I was worried about the landing but it was a piece of cake.
I honestly don’t know how to put it into words to describe it. I know – I am not at a loss for words very often. Allow me to encapsulate it by saying: I LOVED IT! It was right up there with paragliding and I would totally do it again.
