What a day!

Saturday, April 04, 2009

Did you ever wonder what it was like to jump out of a perfectly good airplane at over 13,000 feet?

I found out today, and the answer is: there really are no words to explain just how awesome it was. I loved every foot of it.

    Thanks coug!

Gutternuts- No butterflies, believe it or not. I was honestly a little more nervous about being in a prop plane rather than jumping out of it. I had a very surreal feeling as I was approaching the door, but no butterflies at all. It was such a great feeling to fall towards earth at 120mph. You can't imagine how badly gravity wants you back on the ground. 13,000 to 6,000 feet was so quick it was mind boggling.

176 feet PER SECOND. emoticon
