I Blame Linda: My Skydiving Adventure


My friend Linda sucked me into it.

After all, if she hadn’t decided to go skydiving with our buddy Mario at the Florida Skydiving Center in Lake Wales, I wouldn’t have been shamed into doing it, too.

What was it like?

Well, it was scary and exhilarating, too. On the plane ride up to altitude my mouth was dry and the taste of fear was thick on my tongue. I’ll always remember the odd sight of people tumbling out the open maw of the plane’s door. I’ll always remember being perched on the edge of the plane before allowing myself to fall forward into the emptiness of the sky, and then, moments after that, dorking around making animal faces with Mario as we rushed towards Earth from two miles high.

Check out the movie of my adventure! And definitely add this one to your “bucket list.”
