We went skydiving at Skydive Oregon yesterday and, well, we are all scared to death!
Of the 6 of us, none of us have ever done it, 2 of us refuse to ever do it, and the 4 of us that did it – well, I already said – we were ready to just give it over with and write about it! We were all running scenarios through our minds about how this could end badly… none of us were looking towards the sky with smiles before going into their business.
With that said, we all landed safely on the ground with our instructors. The beautiful thing is that you cannot jump alone, you have to be strapped to a professional until you get your solo jumping license. How do we know this? The crew over at Skydive Oregon did a fantastic job at sitting us down for a full hour before flight & jump to go through all situations and procedures with us. Not only did they take the confusion away from our minds about what was going to happen, but they even explained the plane, the parachutes, and went into depth about each instructor’s history and abilities.
