Advanced Free Fall from 14,500feet.. a terrifyingly cool rush....


Yesterday I did my first free fall... from 14,500 feet... fell until 5,500 feet (about 60 seconds)... then opened the chute.... the class definitely helped... having good instructors is really key... there were two instructors on my first jump. The owner who has god knows how many jumps, and the other instructor, who does this for a living, and has over 3,500 jumps under his belt. I was in good hands. hahaha..
It was terrifying at first, falling through the sky away from the plane.. but also... there were moments when it was quite cool... definitely exhilerating....
Especially when I had problems finding the hackey on my pilot chute... hahaha... definitely something you want to find, or you'll not open up your main...lol...
If things work out I'll be jumping again this Wednesday.... and I still have a fear of heights... lol..
