Exclamation Who has went skydiving?

I went last week and I still can not stop thinking about it. How much fun it is going 125 mph in the air 2.3 miles from the ground. I simply can not find anything as exciting as that was and will be going again in a few weeks. My first few are tandem however I can go solo in 5 jumps. I am completely hooked. who else has went? Share your experience.

I jumped 4 years ago and have been thinking about doing it again . I screamed the entire fall and wet myself a little . I stopped after the parachute opened and realized I am going to live ..

never skydived but did a couple nosedives and barrel rolls in a small airplane, that was fun but probably nothing like skydiving

That's awesome, are you going solo now? I plan on going solo after my 5 tandem jumps.

You gotta do it! There is nothing out there that gives you the rush like this, your entire body's senses are on overload and your adrenaline is going an hour after you lang.

All my jumps have been solo. Never did a tandem jump. Static line for the first 5 jumps, then was pulling the chute myself. Have jumped out of all types of planes, helicopter, etc.

Scariest was a hot air ballon. Since you're traveling with the wind, there's no control till you get your body falling to speed.
