Yep, ladies. I did it! I went skydiving this past Sunday. And it was AMAZING!
We did what is called a static jump. Basically we went up to 3500 ft. altitude, then we were hooked up to a static line. Once we climbed out onto the strut of the plane & jumped, the static line let us free fall about 10-15 feet, then automatically pulled our parachutes for us. There are also tandem jumps, where you go to a much higher altitude, but you are hooked to an instructor who pulls the parachute rip cord for you both.
I can't even describe the feeling of jumping out of the plane, free falling, then gliding once your parachute opened. It was truly an experience. So happy I did it!
