My quickest and most accurate description is that it is basically batting practice for skydivers. I would like to hear yours

I never discuss skydiving with whuffos if I can avoid it. But I suppose I might liken it to a flight simulator for pilots. Or astronauts. Yeah, that's it- we're like astronauts.

I explain to them I'm going to go have fun and call me if they get bored doing needlepoint.

It's a training tool. One analogy I've used is that it's like comparing an indoor climbing wall/gym to actual rock climbing.
