I'm not a pancake.

Pretty big picture (just one) under the cut. Video etc. to come later.

That's Ernie with me. He's their Safety Leader and I was his 13,337th jump. He's uh, pretty chill. :D Check the altimeter: we're just under 12,000 feet. 5 seconds after we bailed at 13,500, that's how fast you're falling: 120 mph. DUDE.

I landed, hugged everyone, high fived, and then walked in and booked jump #2. I'm now officially a junky (and in the AFF school.) I'll be doing all of those sweet barrel rolls and formation jumps in no time.

Now, I go take a nap - I got maybe four hours of sleep last night. :)

How much i$ it a jump? I've wanted to do this all my life. I tried to hang glide when I was a child, off the roof of my house, with my Batman & Robin kites. Didn't work. Tell me the money involved & I WILL schedule a jump. Or 5.

Check out skydivedallas.com for the different prices. I went the crazy VIP route so I wouldn't have to wait and so I could have one on one time with the instructor on everything, but you'll be able to see all the different ways you can pull it off/different pricing.

Wow! I can probably afford the VIP at least one time, as a treat to myself. If I did it after that I'd have to streamline down, but that's doable.

COOL! Thanks!

And totally off the subject~~ but not really since he's your icon~~ wasn't Ron/Rupert ADORABLE in this last one? OMG.


Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
