Glad you were successful. I can't even imagine it on my bucket list. emoticon
My brother did it once and loved it but would never do it again. He is the kind who will try anything once.

Ginat, where you scared of heights or did you like heights!

I am so glad you did that and had that experience. I am deathly scared of heights but I am sure if I was tandom I would feel better LOLOL

How fast did you feel you fell through the sky or was it kinda a floating thing? It always looks awesome on TV..

I have flown alot and even flew in gliders (without propellers) and I loved it, felt like an eagle flying LOL

Glad you liked it, I knew you would. I've jumped there before but my home drop zone is Skydive DeLand.

Thanks for the encouragements folks!! The jump was absolutely amazing!! I can't even begin to express how much I loved it!! I can't wait to go again!!!! One thing is for sure, it has motivated me even more to lose more weight and to get stronger! I did just fine, but seeing myself in the video and pictures with those tight straps around me... emoticon

that first step is a humdinger I hear

Wait for me. I would love to do that. I live in Viera fellow Floridian, formally Port St. John. I'm 74 yrs. old. My husband says I'm too old. What does he know.
