Who wants to take a leap of faith with me?!? Are you an adrenaline junkie or are you scared of heights?!? If you are still posting and are being active with me currently here on Steemit, then you obviously like living dangerously close to the edge. You are all prime candidates to come jump with me in 2019.
I have been trying all year to find the time to jump but 2018 escapes unscathed. 2019 will not be so lucky. I will be using my gift certificate for Skydive Crosskeys in Williamstown New Jersey. My lovely wife @reeseshara bought it for me last year for my birthday and I have been jonesing to use it ever since.
I will be doing a tandem jump which is when you are attached to an experienced diver. I’ve done it twice already but it’s been almost 20 years since I last jumped. The first time I was 18 and went with my childhood buddy Clark, and my 3 friends...Sarah, April, and Raven from Hobart, Indiana. They flew up to hang and visit and I convinced them all to jump. They were initially No’s but I wore em down. We had a blast. The second time I went with a work friend Daryl, and one of the “English Broads” named Helena, that came to work for the summer at the Country Club I worked at.
The first time I jumped I paid for the video. I still have it on VHS somewhere. This gift certificate includes the video which will be fun to have again. I’ll be sure to post it on here!
I realize with so many of us spread out throughout the globe, it would be hard to have everyone come with me and join me at Crosskeys in Jersey. Although it’s not impossible to get a group of us to jump together here....
My proposition is, let’s jump together. Wherever you are. Find your local spot and let’s make a day, a week, a month...whatever. Let’s dedicate it to doing something fun together. Even if we only get a few of us, it’ll be fun to see this spread and garner a bit of support. Then we can all post about it and share our experiences. I’m thinking spring sometime for me, which would be April-June here. Anyone interested in joining me here or remotely?
I’d love to share my experience jumping because at the time, I was both afraid of heights and planes. Jumping helped aid in bringing me comfort in both of those departments. If there seems to be any support, maybe I’ll tell in detail about it and try and dig out that old vhs and get it up here for folks to see.
Let me know folks. Let’s do something unique and fun!!!
