I went skydiving for the first time on June 10, 2012. I tumbled out of a plane at 18,000 feet and flew straight down over two miles before Jordan deployed our parachute. There is nothing like plunging through the troposphere at terminal velocity… then suddenly you’re floating almost a mile above the ground. It’s down right magical.

Stand up, walk away from the computer, and go live. Your life is only as amazing as you choose to make it. It’s a choice but you absolutely have to make it your self.

“Don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.” – Bill Hicks

    2. Doesn’t count if you had to be strapped to someone else to do it

    3. It’s a shame you were sodomized the whole way down…or…maybe…I dunno…maybe it isn’t.

    4. Well done. Now jump out a plane at 6k feet. Holy. Fucking. Shit.

    5. They didn’t do the whole tandem thing back when I did my first jump. For me the instructor simply held on to the pilot chute as a static line jump. That and the reserve chute had a decent rate trigger. If you were below a certain height and falling faster than a certain rate it popped. I have never gotten the tandem thing…

    6. Great stuff. Now try it with 50 pounds of military hardware strapped to you.

    8. I did that once (from 11k feet). Freefalling was awesome, but once the chute opened and we were bobbing up and down I got airsick and almost threw up. If you’re susceptible to motion sickness (like I am) I’d suggest Dramamine beforehand.

    9. Fuck the haters man. They’re just jealous that you were able to do something they never could muster the testicular fortitude for.

      I envy you. I look at videos all the time about base jumping and slacklining and wish I could do it.
