One of the most exciting things I have done is skydiving. This past July on my birthday I went skydiving for the first time. Such joy!!! I can say there was never a moment when I was frightened. We were in a freefall for about 50 seconds and then 5 minutes with the parachute. I anticipated the freefall to be a bit scary but it wasn't at all. Rick, my instructor and tandem partner, after unloading the parachute, told me to hold the straps for the parachute because he had to adjust my straps. My first thought was "Why didn't you adjust them right the first time when we were on the ground?" LOL Then I discovered he adjusted the leg straps to help my legs go forward for the landing.
It was great fun! I'll do it again next year on my birthday.
