    We decided to get the wife a Tandum skydive for mothers day and today she took the plunge and made her first skydive. She also had her first cut away as they had a line over about the 4th cell I dont think she even knew what was going on until she felt herself falling again. she is one up on me as I havent had to cut away yet in 20 skydives. Pics will follow soon.

    I tried that once many years ago and liked it but I don't think I could do it again at my age now.
    Years ago I was a daredevil but I'm not taking that kind of risk anymore. I have friends in Colorado that still do it and they will do it for the rest of their life. I'll just sit back and watch....lol

    She has got more guts than I do. Good for her. I got stuck on a double ferris wheel at the fair when it broke down. Was up there for over 2 hours. Can't stand heights anymore.

    Sounds like fun, except for the going back into free fall...That would scare me just a little.

    Good for her! Is she ready to go again? Don't think I could do it.

    I used to dream I was flying, but could never land. Always woke up prior to the landing. I hate airplanes. And at my age, I'd probably not make it to the bottom. :embarassed:
