Facebook recently reminded my of a memory from three years ago.
Three years ago this crazy skydiving journey started with a tandem. I thought I would do one tandem to try out skydiving since my dad was skydiver. Ithought it would be a fun way to remember him, as I always heard about it skydiving growing up from family. Well one tandem turned to two then three, and before I knew it I had enrolled in skydiving school!
Three years later and 240ish jumps I’ve met awesome new friends and get to be part of an amazing community! My life has changed in significant ways I could never imagine. I’m more confident, go for things I want and have a great support system.
I would not change one minute of it and hey it’s pretty cool to be part something my dad loved!
Tandem to skydiver….

Looks amazing although I really couldn’t do it! You’re very brave!
Thank you! 🙂
How amazing : ) Great sitfly, too! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you for stopping by! Sitfly is finally starting to click for me. 🙂
At one point it was all I would do. Or head down with a friend. Best 45 seconds you could spend money on. I was in a tunnel once and went over to my belly, I shot to the ceiling. The tunnel instructor asked, when is the last time you flew on your belly? I told him ‘only to pull’ lol. I envy you, have fun!!
My compliments. Iy is one of the greatest sensations in Life. How many jumps have you made?
Thanks! I believe I have around 255 now. The season has pretty much ended now with the cold weather here.
255 jumps?! OMG. You are a pro. I started jumping/diving in Africa. Only did 12 jumps. And left that country. Then I got married and had kids, and decided I couldn’t really jump off an airplane…
Awesome job, keep it up!
Thank you! 🙂
