    I went skydiving back in 1999. It was an amazing experience! I can't ever do it again, I broke my neck 3 years ago and I still have 2 herniated discs in my neck.

    If you have the opportunity to do it, go for it!

    Actually I have been. And do love it! It's a shame you can't go again....I look forward to it every weekend. I have been jumping for five years. But have only found a few people that enjoy jumping out of planes and a little country life! So where did you jump?

    I gave my husband a parachute jump for his 60th birthday. He always said it was something he'd like to try and I figured it wasn't a good idea for him to wait until he was 70! [​IMG]

    He liked it but said once was enough for him!

    I made six jumps in the mid 90s. An experience I will never forget, but I just haven't gotten back into it. It was a money thing at the time, now it is a time thing. [​IMG]

    Tomorrow I will hit jump number 350! Not a huge amount by any means but I can not believe the ride it has been!

    I would love to go skydiving, just once, to try it out and see if I'd like it. There was a place that offered it over the NSW coast when I was on holiday there, but the weather was bad and my parents were getting all freaky about how much it costs. One day, one day. [​IMG]

    I was able to get 4 jumps this weekend! So I am at 352. You should go Ray's Two Cents. I just received my coaches rating in April and am having a blast teaching students.
