    If you go tandem; try to find yourself with a sexy chick strapped to your back. If not you'll have some dude trying to dry hump you whilst falling from an airplane....no good.

    I REALLY want to skydive.
    I'm terrified of falling from heights, so this is a bizarre thing for me to want to try...

    UnsungZeros The only winning move is not to play.

    I did about two years ago. It was awesome. Awesome is a really overused word, but it was truly awesome.

    I felt like I was about die for about the first second after jumping. I was thinking "Well #%&$! I'm stupid. I just jumped out of a perfectly good plane and now I'm going to die!"

    That thought fades in an instant and becomes "THIS IS #$%@ING AWESOME! WOOOOO!"

    I want to do it again so bad.

    It's brilliant!

    I skydived tandem in Las Vegas in 2005. We jumped from the height of around 13000 feet. We were in freefall for almost a minute!

    Loved it!

    when i was married, my wife wanted to sky dive.

    her ass is so big, it created an eclipse on her way down. we had to pay a fine.
     
  11. I am desperately acrophobic, so I doubt that there would be a more breathtaking experience for me.

    I was going to say something about Texas being so flat, but I didn't know your wife so I will refrain.

    Might be one of the funniest posts in TB history.

    We need a HoF.

    I was a skydiver for a couple of years back when I was young and indestructable.

    It's the most fun you can have with your cloths on.
     
  18. I've done it a couple times now. The first jump I did was in Nelson, New Zealand. It is easily one of the coolest things I've ever done. I really didn't think it was all that scary. Not nearly as bad as bungee jumping. They let me take me camera up too, so I snapped some shots on the way down.

    Yep, got a few jumps, it's certainly the craziest thing you can do with your clothes on.. or without any, as the more experienced skydivers know ;)
