Default Sky diving on the 4th of July

What better way to celebrate the 4th of July than flinging yourself out of a perfectly good airplane... 12,000ft over Lake Champlain in VT. A little unnerving opening the door and being heaved out. But once out, holy crap it was amazing.

Yes. Next time I'll have the camera positioning perfected, and hopefully not smash it into the ground on landing again.

My 1st jump was out of a helicopter on a static line at 3,000 ft. Sat in the doorway for the ride up and was the first off. What a rush.

Congratulations Matt! I've yet to check this one off.
How difficult is it to land when you tandem?

It's tricky. If there is a decent headwind, you can land-n-run since you'll be slowed way down. But if there is no wind, it can be hard to slow double the weight down slow enough to land on your feet. So you'd ass-plant like in the video.

i did it once, i LOVED it!!!! they explain the landing before you take off.. the tandem guy can just say be loose and they will land the two of us or they will ask you to land running with them

----------

definitely plan to do it again (there a place in cali where you can land in the ocean)

So how far did your underpants dig into your ass crack?

So awesome! If I weren't so afraid of heights, I would so do that!

HA! They didn't actually. No major wedgie. I think this would destroy your fear of heights though.
