    Darling, I've dived out of Elsinore. The only thing that might kill you is the death trap they fly you up in, but otherwise, you should have a blast. I pulled something in my neck when the chute deployed, so make sure you're relaxed (as much as you can be) before pulling the cord. Are you going tandem or crazy enough to try it on your own?

    i would absolutely do a solo even though this is my first jump. but, since i have a friend with me i didn't want her to wait while i took the 6 hour class on the ground before going up to jump.

    i want to get my license to jump solo so i'll go back later and do my first non-tandem jump with instructors, then the series of however many needed to get my license so i can solo whenever i want.


    i like "going_fast".

    Have fun GoFast. My brother was in para-rescue in the military and the basic rule they had during training is first one that pulls the cord buys the beers.

    In case you feel the need to not buy the beers, 59 is too big for me, what else ya got?

    One of my friends that went with the group of us back in 2003 went on to get her license. A license and $6,000 later, she no longer jumps...

    Hey, that's not fair. What about me? I want to consummate before you die. You look like you'd be good for at least one fun roll.

    You're not cheating death if you have a parachute.

    True. But trust me, Elsinore's little plane that takes you up to 14K feet is a little like cheating death, assuming you get out of it alive. I'm petrified of heights and I was itching to jump just to get out of it. It literally rattles.

    Of course, they may have upgraded to a somewhat safer POS by now. For Lee's sake, I hope so.

    I did it once and the World War 2 era plane was scarier than the dive. You're just hoping the plane can get to a safe jump altitude before you bail. And trust me you will bail because your only other choice is to land in that old hunk of scrap. Looks like I should of read the post above before posting anyways it looks like we had the same experience.

    I'm scared of heights too but didn't stop me from jumping off a 17 story tower with a rubber band attached to my feet Was funny too cuz I was the only one that wanted to get dunked into the pool below. My GF said no was even close to hitting the pool then when I hit it, she was freaking out LMAO and was on the phone with my sister LOL
