Skydiving



This is a small portion of my video, it is in slow motion to capture the true beauty of the jump. What you are seeing here is Christine (Dive Master) and I jumping from the plane at 9600 feet. We are falling at 130 MPH before reaching an altitude of 4600 feet when Christine deployes the shute. We then slow down and enjoy a peaceful decent to the ground. The hands and feet you see from time to time belong to Todd the video guy as he captures the adventure on film for me.


If you have seen it or not The Bucket List (a very good movie) was a player in my jump. A player mind you not THE player. There are so many things I want to do and plan to do them all. I want my epitaph to read "She did it all - lived life to the fullest". I have now added skydiving to my ever growing list of accomplishments such as scuba diving, mountain climbing, white water rafting, para sailing, snorkeling, water skiing, kayaking, horse back riding, repealing, and I'm sure others that have slipped my mind, which some think that I probably have lost, since I continue to add to my list.

O.K., so now I have proof positive. I remember Robert loving it when he went. He didn't go up as high as you, but he dived solo! You daredevils you!!

That looks insane and extremely fun. I don't think I would ever make it out of the plane! Ya'll are braver than me....
