found a new hobby!!!

OMG I just discovered my new summer hobby… fast cars can take a side seat.
Sky diving!!! I just watched a video I had requested about it and it looks like it’ll be the most fun thing I could do.

Im an adrenalin(sp?) junky (why I have a v8 fiero), why I trained to be a cop, and now why I will start skydiving. And its not nearly as expensive as I thought it was (especially not compared to cars) only 150 for your first class, then it goes down as you gain experience… once you can go with out an instructor (from this place any way) its only 17 bucks a jump!!

acrophobia, i have it... but I love the rush I get when i look down from hight places... how odd.

So any one here ever do it? How did you like it?
Man now I really cant wait for spring!

I've been thinking it would be fun too (not for a couple more years though)...

Sounds like a fun hobby...tell us how it goes

...until your main chute fails and your reserve chute's cord breaks off when you pull it.

Did you see that episode of King of the Hill where Peggy falls from the plane while sky-diving, and her chute didn't open?...She still lived

And you've been watching too many sky-diving movies

Live life like it’s the last day… if you cant take risks whats the point in living?
And for just that reason im never gonna go diving with out some candy bars and blow pops in my pockets so that when I hit I explode like a big ass human piñata.

Take some Skittles so you can sprinkle them around while you are plummeting...then it would rain Skittles like it does in those commercials. Taste the Rainbow.

There are a lot of people who would remember that trip to the park.

I agree strongly with that. I'd give it a go but I feel unsafe standing at the top of tall buildings.....looking down (not contemplating suicide lol....Just part of my job sometimes), so I'm not sure if I'd be able to jump....I thin k I'd require a lil push lol. I think It's one of those things that ya really dont wanna do when you're about to do it, but once you've done it, you wanna go again lol.

Go for it though, and tell us how ya get on!.......If ya sudenly disappear, I'll start a memorial thread lol jk
