Sky Diving

I'm pretty sure that has been a thread about this a long time ago but meh..

My friend brought this up lastnight over dinner and I very much want to go over the summer time.

Has anyone been before?

I think I would have to consult my doctor bc he told me im not supposed to be an astronaut or a scuba diver bc of the air pressure.

My parents on the other hand are scared that i will pass out bc i used to get dizzy and puke when i played sports.. but that's a different matter bc i was dehydrated.

What do you guys think?
opinions?

did you cry when your doctor told you that you couldn't be an astronaut? I would have cried.

I have never jumped out of a plane before, but I have jumped off a mountain top with a parachute, when I was in Austia almost 4 years ago. I think they call it "Base jumping". It was in the Alps, about 3,000 ft above sea level, so it was pretty damn high. I have always wanted to go sky diving though. I just don't have anybody to go with. If I had someone to go with, I would totally go!

yeah it's called base jumping

It's illegal to do here in North America.

This past summer I went on Skyflyer and this summer im going sky diving.. that's a huge jump.

Oh and one other thing, im petrified of heights.. but you only live once right? Might as well enjoy you life and live it to the fullest.

My friends good friends went this past summer. They had to climb on to the wing and jump from there. You don't pull your chord, you just jump and it pulls by itself.

I wouldn't mind getting strapped to an instructor but you have to go higher to do that.

Yeah, it's at CAnada's wonderland.

It's bungee jumping almost.

You're 200 ft in the air and you free fall and then you swing.

The scariest part is getting up their as you're entire weight is pressing against the restraints.

The drop is so much fucking fun!!!!

everyone should go on it man! :)

skydiving is on my list of things to do this year!

I don't have anyone willing to go with me either. . I'd love to get somebody to videotape my jump.

what are you talking about?

I was just wondering if anyone has been sky diving before.

The reason why i said astronaut is because my doctor jokingly said that i can't go scuba diving or be an astronaut bc of the air pressure and i was worried that i wont' be able to go sky diving bc of the height.

I went skydiving a couple of summers ago at Gananoque Airport, outside of Kingston. If you want to do any amount of free falling your first time i recoment tandem jumping. you're strapped on to the instructor who's in control of the parachute. all you gotta do is enjoy the ride.

It was the best $200 i've ever spent. they took us up to almost 11,000 ft. the free fall was for 5,000 ft. in 25 seconds.

-o-

edit- you can pay to have them video tape your jump.

(this is qtip)

yes you should definetly go if you got the balls for it. Some peopel cant fly, but if you want to, I would suggest it. it was the best high of my life, and for a week I was glowing still. I saw the cn tower, and the wierdest part was that the earth was CURVED while I was two miles up in the air.

i guss that columbus asshole was right after all.

no, all kidding aside, PM me (qtip) if you want to know more or if you want me to get you the MPEG. I went to torontoskydive.com or somehting like that (check google)
