The Best 40 Year B-Day Gift – SkyDiving

Wow. I knew skysiving would be a thrill. I knew it would be difficult to voluntarily leave the comfort of a perfectly good airplane. I knew I’d be glad I went. I am not disappointed in the least.

Yes, it was surreal to approach the open plane door. I found it best to not look at the ground and focus on the procedures taught. Mitch, my tandem jump buddy, made it easy to trust that his 15 years of jumping, one day completing 16 jumps, would make this a safe adventure. Chris, my photographer, added some humor and brevity.

Awesome, intense, and exciting are words I use to describe this experience. All because my wife, Ellen wanted my 40th birthday to be memorable. Well, and because she loves me.
