The First Time I Jumped Was Three Years Ago Today

If you’ve read much from my blog up to this point, you know I love a wide variety of outdoor activities. Skydiving is one of them.

It was three years ago today when I jumped for the first time. That first one was at Skydive Space Center in Titusville. I had a great time and will most likely be going back to that facility for my next jump. The featured photo you see here was about five minutes or so after we had all four feet on Terra Firma again.

I did two more tandem jumps from a skydiving fac in Lake Wales and have only been inactive in the hobby because of reasons relating to work, work schedules and budgets.

I just have to scratch that skydiving itch again, and soon! Because working on a very limited personal budget is just a part of my reality, it’s going to take some time. But I’m elevating jumping out of airplanes to near the top of my priority list and I’m going to do my dead-level best to jump again before the end of the summer. We’ll see if I can pull it off!
