The plane is is mechanical it will fail at some point so it's not perfectly good :evilgrin0013:


Besides it's fun :D I did it for my 30th B-day in Taft

I'm sure it was a total rush. That's one I haven't tried. Just seemed weird to me to have someone pack a chute and then you go jump out of a plane to see if he did it right. :confused2:

Congrats on the jump. :dblthumb2:

First...total cost @ Taft: $160 to jump, $90 for DVD + Photos...well worth it...especially for your first time.

Second...If you saw the plane...you'd jump from that rickety old thing...hahahha...

Seriously...absolute rush...if you think moving at 120-140mph on a motorcycle is fun...then you have to do this...it changes the game...

Thanks Scarman...they are tedious and meticulous in packing the chutes...and with everything...nothing is 100%...just like riding...just because I have all my gear...and I've maintained my bike very well..doesn't mean it won't fail and cause an accident or my gear won't fail in a crash...same difference to me...LOL.... Thanks all... it was a great time...and I recommend it to all you crazy bastards who have the crazy gene in them... BLUE SKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OOHRAH!!!

I used to jump out off helos while in Air/Sea rescue in the Navy. I "WILL" skydive someday soon.

Nice, Skydiving was the single greatest thing I have ever done. Hope to be able to go solo one day, and then eventually B.A.S.E. jump.
