First of all - thanks for providing an occasion to do this goes to Melody Norris and her 22nd birthday! Out of all our friends, only 4 of us had the guts to go :)
We had SO much fun! I was thinking it would just be a once in a lifetime kind of thing, but now I really want to go again:) Maybe once Abe turns 18 we will get another group together. So save up your money people! Its totally worth it!
Abe and I
We girls (notice that 3 girls went and only one guy...) eating while we waited for our plane.
We had a little 15 minute training class before hand.
This was our instructor - he was the one who jumped tandem with me. He was great :)
it was squinty out there - i don't actually have a bad attitude :)
lol - demonstrating the fact that the airplane door is not very tall, so we must crouch down or we will bump our heads :)
practicing our free-fall pose :) This is actually quite instinctive when you are falling stomach-first towards the ground.
Getting my gear on....
Melody, Rebecca and I getting ready to go.
Melody - happy birthday girl!
1st cousins once-removed ;)
Rebecca's instructor was a crack-up :) He was joking about just catching her by her hair if something went wrong :) lol
Melody and I
Ready to go in our lovely purple pants!
Abe wearing my sexy flight hat :)
Getting on the plane..
and we're off!
Mr and Mrs Brusby
and there we are! I skipped all the pictures of tiny little dots in the sky cause you can't really see anything...
I think this is me....
Me coming in to land...
I was quite proud of myself for making a beautiful little running stop :)
The adrenaline rush was increadible :) There's nothing like jumping out of a plane at 13,500 ft and freefalling for 60 seconds, then basically riding a rollercoaster for another 5 minutes before landing safely back on earth :)
Safely on the ground ;)
Me in my sweet hat. I want one. lol
Getting the equipment off..
Trevor Brusby, Melody and Mrs. Norris
We each signed eachothers SKYDIVING bumpersticker. (yes, i know im holding my pen wrong...)
My Certificate of Accomplishment :)
That was an awesome way to spend the 4th of July!
I definitely think everyone should do this at one point in their life :) Its not THAT scary :)
