My stomach was in a knot watching that. I could hardly watch it. I have a terrible fear of heights. But I'm glad you had fun.

I think that's why I enjoyed it so much. I absolutely hate being on anything taller then a step stool if I can see the ground.

I applied for a job once, to work on cell phone towers. The interviewer asked me if I was afraid of heights.

Oh I'm terrified of heights. But I'm strong enough to work through it for what you guys pay. AND... that just means I'll be extra careful.

I didn't get the job right away. They called me and made an offer later, but I'd already taken a really good paying job that didn't involve heights. Didn't pay as good, but close enough to be worth it and keep both feet on the ground. I think I was only making about 100 bucks less per week by taking the other job, which seems like a lot to me now in comparison to how much I make, but it was still over 1,000 per week.

I used to have to be drugged (doctor's RX) whenever I flew in an airplane. Somehow I have overcome that. But to open the door and for me to jump........never.

thats why they put the big guys at the back of the stick to push everyone out then they got the jump master to push out the big guy

There was a time when I was young and a bit crazy I would have happily tried it out. That time has long since passed. I don't think I would try it now.

Get back up there again and again as there's nothing quite like putting your knees in the breeze.

141 static and 10 pull your own exiting an aircraft in flight.

Sometimes we had enough allocations to jump 5 times a day.

Me, rolling up my sleeves for a "Hollywood jump" ( helicopter).

It can be addictive !



SO IF YOU ENJOYED THE FIRST ONE BE SURE AND GET THE 2ND,3RD, SO ON.

Man, you've beat me by 150 jumps so far, I'm looking to get a lot more jumps in though. The same place I did this at offers classes for $1,500.xx and that covers the cost of equipment usage, aviation fuel and it's a total of ten jumps in two days. Both me and my girlfriend are thinking of going for that.

I'm not even going to attempt to lie, I'd love to jump out of a helicopter. From the bit that I've been told, you don't get that sudden drop feeling from a plane since you're already in motion.....but then again I'd also love to jump off of the CN Tower. Haha
