My first skydiving experience

View Larger Image Fun at 14, feet: My first skydiving experience Looking for an adventure between trips, I decided to try skydiving near Chicago.

After ziplining in WisconsinI wanted to see what else there was to do near home. It is also home to the Freefall University Skydive School. After signing disclaimer forms and browsing the gear store how cool would it be to have a skydiving logbook? First-timers do tandem skydiving.

I was introduced to my instructor Beau, who helped with the jumpsuit, harness, and altimeter, then explained what could be expected in the air.

Then the door opened and before I had a chance to process the adrenaline, we were second in line to jump. No turning back now… Javier indicated to smile for the camera, then off we went! I remember the deafening wind and a blast of cold air on my ears and face.

But all that mattered was that I was flying! I wanted to laugh, shout, and do flips in the air if only I knew how. It was time to pull the parachute cord. One quick jolt and everything slowed down.

We were suspended in mid-air. Ah… relax, breathe, enjoy the view, do a few degree turns.

Does it have to end? Even before my feet touched the grass, I knew that I was hooked. I ordered a snack at Flight Deck, found a seat in the courtyard, and stuck around to watch more jumps. Anything to prolong the experience.
