Skydiving is one of the funnest things I've ever done. I only jumped from 11,000ft. though. You don't get that rollercoaster feeling in your stomach, like a lot of people think you do. It's loud, it's windy, and it's a little cold. I compare it to floating in a pool, but just with the afore mentioned factors added to it. The scariest part was deploying the 'chute. Going from about 120 mph to 20 mph in around a second, can be a little nerve racking. I went tandem, and the guy found out I fly Cessna 172s, so we did spins and stalls on the way down. We were headed toward the L.Z., hit about 25 ft., and the wind died. Now, when you're setting up to flare, and you have no head-wind, you come in a little hotter than expected. None-the-less, I WILL do it again...it's just a matter of time and money.
