Should I try skydiving?
I found this website for a place near my area that can do a tandem skydiving where they take you on a guided skydive for just $350.00.

I am thinking of doing this at some point but I might need encouragement lol!

Might actually get my dad who is pushing into his early 60's now to get him a gift certificate so he can experience it before he is "too" old for that sorta thing lol.

What do ya think? Should I go through with it? Or pussy out?
Would any of you do it if you had the money?


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

Nope. I’ll take my chances with sharks.

I'm not a big fan of flying, the chances of me jumping out of a plane are slim.

Hang gliding was fun but I don't think I'd ever skydive.

I say go for it if that's what you want to do.

I love flying. However, I hate heights...the thought of jumping out of a plane makes me twitch. I would however love the chance to fly in a helicopter. Jumping out of a flying machine...not so much.

Modern parachutes aren't parachutes; they're gliders. You flare them out just like an airplane and land soft as a feather. Every skydive accident/incident I can recall involved experienced jumpers; accidents involving newcomers to the sport are extremely rare.

So go for it! It's cheaper than getting your weightless jollies in the Vomit Comet, lasts longer and has better scenery.

$350 sounds cheap for a Hank Gathers diagnostic test. And it'll be fun to boot. Go for it.

Do, or do not; there is no try.

... at least with skydiving.
