The entire event was surreal. From the drive down to Eloy to the moment I realized I was about to sommersault into the wide open sky to my feet hitting the ground again. I couldn't believe I was doing it/did it. AS surreal as it was I remember every movement/thought like its happening right now.
A week ago I got hat feeling again. The one that I needed to do something. Live a little. Bj text me he was going sky diving and I should come. 24 hrs later with a lil persuasion I told myself this was my answer to the prayer I had said. so I agreed and refused to think about it till sat. Morning :)
I was sure i was going to be a nervous wreck but i was eerily calm. I simply told the two assigned to me they were going to be "chatty " to distract me and I would be golden. I acquired the nick name chatty, they abliged and my plan worked. ( helped my video guy was a STUD) but THANKS BOYS!
The entire experience was awesome ! Its not the same feeling of when a roller coaster plummets , its a floating feeling. Peaceful and exciting at the same time. I highly suggest everyone puts this on their bucket list. Will I do it again ? Maybe one day :)
