MY SKYDIVING EXPERIENCE

On July 21, 2012 I went for my first skydive at Jumptown in Orange, Massachusetts. IT WAS FREAKING AWESOME! My instructor Joe Goodbreak was so cool & fun to hang out with. He has done over 1,000 jumps. Videographer was Keith Thivierge with two cameras for video & still.

I was only really scared for the 3 seconds before we actually jumped.  We had a 55 second free fall at about 120km before opening the parachute. Falling in the air is exhilarating. Greatest adrenaline ever.  The sky was so clear and beautiful. I felt so calm up there.

He grabs my head so I lift up my chin to the camera. He told me not to look down but I couldn’t help it! He signals for me to pull the ripcord after we spin for a bit. Time goes so fast when you’re fallin’. I wanted to do dance moves but it was a LOT to take in on my first jump. Next time.

Definitely tops the list of amazing things I have ever done. I can’t WAIT to do it again. Seeking friends who skydive!

I feel like a cooler version of myself who can REALLY do anything.  Motivated to take on the world!

Have you gone skydiving? Where, when? LMK.  Here’s to a great week 🙂

    Wow, what a jump. Your street cred just went up a bunch, not that you needed it.
    Your sense of gratitude is so nice with everything you do. The universe wants to give you a whole lot more.

    That was exhilarating to watch. What is landing like?
