Saturday, we drove up to the Cape Canaveral area (near the space center) and went skydiving!!!  We did the highest tandem jump in the world….18,000 ft!  Its something I’ve always wanted to do, and I suspect it won’t be the last time.  We had so much fun.  Although I will say that after having such an intense experience for such a short amount of time, it feels more like a dream than reality.  Its an odd feeling.  Also, you know that falling feeling you get when you ride a roller coaster?  I didn’t feel that at all.  The scariest part is getting out of the plane.  Very freaky.  I screamed my head off as we did 5 flips.  When we finally stopped spinning, I opened up my arms and flew.  The free fall was about 1 minute long at 120 mph and then that parachute opens, jerking you upward, and you soar back and forth and corkscrew to the ground.  I highly recommend it for anyone who is considering it!!

Check out the photos!  I also have a video of my jump.  I’m still trying to figure out how to post it…  Anyhow, enjoy!

So I have a question for all of you!  Would you ever go skydiving?
