A Resource For Those Yet To Make Their First Skydive Can't Post

I found this through a Google search. I scanned it and it seemed fairly good. Straightforward and helpful for those here who have not yet experienced skydiving. Enjoy!

FACT: Yes, Wesley Snipes may have done it in Drop Zone, but that was Hollywood. In reality, freefalling is way too loud to hear anything other than the wind screaming through your ears."

My wuffo friends have always thought skydivers were an empty headed lot.Tongue

Actually, the wind goes past my ears, not through.

Here's another one: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0071410686/qid=1041540276/sr=1-8/ref=sr_1_8/002-7704188-3024024?v=glance&s=books#product-details

This is a link to Amazon.com for a new book called Jump! Skydiving Made Fun and Easy, to be published by McGraw Hill later this month. It should be available on most book related web sites and at many bookseller throughout the country. I wrote the book last summer to help first timers figure out what our sport is about, and to help them select a drop zone. Check it out in a few weeks!
