I don't think, even in my youth, that this is a sport I would be able to do - if you CAN call it a "sport"!

I think it would be a great Adrenalin rush however it is a rush I could do without as to me it would be raw fear!

I did it for my 21st Birthday. I was on an adrenalin high for about a week afterwards. I did a weekend training first, so I could jump alone.. i.e. not tandem.. It was amazing.
Wow, you are game!

Ohhhhhhh no!

Good one Rice!

Yes, great 1 Rice! And it's free, so much quicker, & you can do it from your own lounge room!

I think I could do it but it just feels like I would be risking my life for a temporary thrill. I just have too much to live for to try these white knuckle sports.
No, no and again I say no! I did watch someone else go skydiving. She enjoyed it immensely and plans to do it again, but we are very different people. As the saying goes, 'Why jump out of a perfectly good plane?' I just checked the price of skydiving (basic, no extras) at one place and it was just under $400. There are countless ways I would rather spend that money.
I am not the thrillseeker type. We gave my daughter a skydiving experience for her 21st birthday. It was very exciting. She had training beforehand. They were taken to the airport to get on the plane. We went to the place where she was due to land. We looked up at the sky. Soon we saw little dots which quickly came closer and closer until they all landed. She enjoyed it so much and wanted to go up again. I would be happy to do it like she did. She did it in TANDEM, which isn't as risky. She had someone else on her back who was pulling all the strings and steering. All she had to do was lie back and enjoy the ride. I would happily do it like that, knowing that a qualified instructor is right beside me, doing all the hard parts to ensure a successful landing.
Did it 32 years ago before tandem. Was great. Had three jumps, and would love to go again. An amazing experience. But this time would take the tandem option.
I did a sky dive 4 years ago. It was great. I didn't enjoy the free fall but I loved it once the parachute went up. Even though I enjoyed the experience I wouldn't do it again.

This is something which I always had a genuine interest in, but due to major problems with my shoulder joints, I was always refused the chance after filling in all the health forms!!! Oh Well...... There is more to life than the thrill of sky diving, and I have been lucky enough to experience many other far more sedentary forms of enjoyment!!!! Maybe I shall just be able to do this in my full colour dreams!!!!
NEVER> I don't like heights or flying and I don't think I would survive with my fear. Probably die from heart failure.
Yes, I don't like heights either, Nat_c, but I've never had a fear of flying. Well yes, twice, sorry, as I flew over the Grand Canyon & back again, in a very small plane! I cried to my self, going & coming back in the little plane. When I told my mother about it, a few years later, she remarked, "Well, if you come down, you come down" Umm. Thanks for that mum.

No! No! No! I couldn't even make myself learn to ride a push bike, because I would be...'off the ground'
by Miro
I'd get a nosebleed standing on a chair. LOL
by Rice
Definitely not. I can't do heights.
No bloody way!

I;ve thought about what it would be like, the thought of me jumping off a plane at so metre high, I don't know how I would cope withit.
