I have not Skydived Everest or made a HALO Jump near Memphis, so it’s not me in the photo above, but I have made two tandem skydives at a drop zone near my home in Florida. Those who know me find that really hard to believe, given how absolutely terrified I am of heights. (I avoid turning on overhead lights so I don’t have to stand on a ladder to replace a light bulb.)
Don’t let a fear of heights keeps you from scheduling a tandem parachute jump. I absolutely loved both of my tandem skydives and think everyone should experience the thrill of falling toward earth at least once. Most people love the free fall…the quick descent toward the ground before the chute opened, but I loved hanging out under the canopy, taking in the amazing view.
