2017 you have been a wild ride with lots of great things to reflect on. I have a lot to be grateful for this year!…
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. I thought 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… Read More
A moment of silence, as I stepped back and let myself fall. It was a new sensation and almost peaceful. It was not my first time jumping from a helicopter, but maybe the first time I really appreciated the experience. For a non-skydiver, falling out of a plane or helicopter might seem like nearly the same experience, but they are actually quiet difference. Many skydivers try a helicopter jump because they… Read More
The skydiving season trickled to a start this year. Unlike other skydivers, I jump with some regularity through the winter, so for me it was a slow start to the season with sporadic jumping in March and April. Dropzones start Safety Days in May, which often marks the beginning of another season. Safety days are an opportunity for all experienced jumpers (or fun jumpers) to run through safety procedures and discuss… Read More
The sun was glimmering off the ocean below and I felt a warm breeze on my face. As I turned for final approach I scanned the beach below for hazards. There are certainly no lack on them; a volleyball net, palapas, rocks, palm trees, buildings, pools and beach goers paying no attention to us flying above. I finally got to do my first beach jump, which has been on my list of… Read More
For those of us that skydive regularly, jumping can be therapeutic.
It is a brief escape from the 9 to 5 and a wonderful way to recharge. This past weekend, a fellow skydive said “this is better than going for a massage.” A good way of explaining the relaxation that comes from jumping.
It was my birthday, my mom had agreed to try her first skydive, it was beautiful and warm out – I was pretty freaking pumped. My mom would be doing a tandem with the instructor who taught me to skydive. Coincidentally, he is also the instructor I desperately do not want to disappoint. At the time I had just over 100 jumps and he offered to let me jump with my first… Read More
Fall has come and gone. The last few vibrant leaves cling to the trees as a crisp wind blows past. For many this marks the end of our skydiving season. Some of us crazy people will visit the one dropzone that stays open all winter in the off season, but this is generally the end. I find I am reflective at this time of the year. It was only September 2014 that… Read More
Have you been to adult summer camp? I guess I haven’t either, but I found the closest thing to it – Summerfest at Skydive Chicago. I mentioned in another post that this was one of my skydiving goals for the summer and what an adventure it was. Summerfest is a skydiving boogie. For non-skydivers, this means a skydiving event or party – more accurately 10 epic days of skydiving with some of… Read More
