My first jump!!!!!!!
Ok I am amazed! I haven't posted much since my first jump but God I already miss it. I find myself looking up at the sky constantly. The problem though is how do I be normal now. I hope I am not the only one to feel this way?????????????????? I can honestly say I LOVED IT!!!!! Mel
...and no, it's not just you. I think we ALL went through that phase ... I'm still not out of it I spent most of my time staring up at our <massive> 30 story office towers in Winnipeg thinking... "yup, I'd be on final aproach..."
normal?, sorry... <maine accent> sorry no way to get they-ah from he-yar... </maine accent>
nowhere on the damned disclaimer I signed did it warn me about the costs of manditory trips to warmer climates during the winter... or how nothing can seem to adequatly occupy my time during weekends when it is too cold to jump... or the dangers of how I now get target fixation whenever I see an object in the sky fly by.. even if I'm driving.. good luck... glad you enjoyed your first jump.. may there be many more... and may normal never return....
You will NEVER be normal again. You'll always have the distinction between you and average Joe/Jane; you jump out of airplanes. Eventually, if not already, you will begin to wonder why people think it's crazy. Now to me, it doen't seem abnormal at all to throw myself out of a plane and commence with the newbie acrobatics. Skydivers and skydiving is where it's at. You're stuck with US...ENJOY IT!!!
