It’s hard to describe the feeling of being weightless. I’ve been selling zero-gravity adventures for more than two decades and still haven’t found the perfect words. I can only say that there is nothing else like it.
Jessy, a new member of the Incredible Adventures team, completed her first zero-gravity flight last week. I think the smile on her face says more than I ever could.
If you’d like to book your own zero-gravity space training adventure in Florida, send me an email or give me a call at 800-644-7382.
I love this year’s edition of our digital holiday catalog. I wish I could take credit for the great graphics, but I simply contributed text and inspiration and let our incredible webmaster Nancy work her magic. The catalog makes use of “flip book” technology, so you can travel from dream to dream with ease. May 2017 your most adventurous year yet!
I love San Francisco, so I’m really excited to have a new excuse to visit “for work”. We’re now offering aerobatic flight training at Livermore Airport, less than an hour’s drive from the city.
I get queasy in elevators, so you won’t find me in the cockpit of a high-performance aircraft, performing rolls and loops over wine country any time soon, but I’ll be recommending the adventure to all my Bay Area friends. Our lead instructor pilot is a former Air Force U-2 pilot and a professional airshow performer. Call Incredible Adventures at 800-644-7382 for more info.
When Dane told us he was declared dead, we thought we misunderstood him. Australian accents and slang can sometimes be a little tricky for American ears. But, sure enough, the car accident that left him confined to a wheelchair was so bad, those on the scene thought he was dead. His recovery surprised everyone.
As he battled back, he discovered he could accomplish things originally thought impossible. Dane says this is what made him decide he was going to spend the rest of his life pushing boundaries and refusing to let his physical limitations hold him back.
Last week, he set a new world record by becoming the first quadriplegic to make two high-altitude “oxygen” skydives within a 24 hour period.
That’s why I sell adventure….for the incredible stories I get to play a small role in writing.
I am a wealth of adventure-related info. Over 20 years in the adventure business will fill your head with all sorts of things. I know the best way to attach mesh to the frame of a shark cage is with plastic zip ties, but also that the zip ties must be clipped tight and sanded, to make sure fingers aren’t pierced by shark divers, grasping onto shark cage bars. I know the MiG-29 can climb to 20 km high, but that the typical altitude reached is 17 km in summer months and 18 km in winter months. I know you’re much less likely to become airsick or seasick if you have a little food in your stomach, so one of the biggest mistake MiG flyers make is not eating anything prior to flying. I know it’s best for HALO jumpers to be clean-shaven, so the required oxygen mask fits better and that great hammerhead season in Bimini is December through April.
If you’re considering a life-changing adventure and have a question, don’t hesitate to ask me. I just might know the answer, and if not, there’s a good chance I’ll know someone who does.
A key part of putting together any shark dive adventure is partnering with the right vessel and captain(s). We definitely scored a victory when we found Jose and the Solmar V. The Mexican-flagged vessel is absolutely beautiful and serves as an incredible platform for great white shark adventures in Isla Guadalupe. Best of all, Jose and the rest of the Solmar V team share our dedication to providing incredible service.
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.
I think the ultimate would be to make your first jump an Everest or HALO jump. If you’re interested, let me know. I sell adventure.
