Skydiving….Success

The Dive, originally uploaded by beckydanaher.

Saturday morning was a little unusual for Sean, myself and 8 of our friends. We went skydiving…and we all made it. It’s something I have always wanted to do and who knew that we could get 10 of us to all go….especially on the last weekend of the year they have available.
We met in Baldwin, WI at 8am using Skydive Twin Cities (see previous blogs). The morning was brisk yet beautiful; the sky was clear.
The gave us the safety brief, legal overview (ie if you die, we aren’t liable), then we start suiting up. We went up in 3 planes, given there were 10 of us and 5 of us were going up with videographers. The first plane was Erin, Jeff, Casey (blue/yellow/green shoot) and Tina (red/yellow shoot). Due to the larger than expected wind gusts, they all landed in a field farther away from us. So, there aren’t as many photos of them landing.
The second plane held Trevor (multi blue shoot), Rebecca (orange shoot), Sean (red/grey shoot), and myself (white/red/black shoot). This plane also carried Rebecca’s dad and Erin’s dad…just for the ride up….and the nose dive down.
The third plane carried Phil (green/yellow/blue shoot) and Miles (red/yellow shoot).
What a blast!!! It’s worth the money, the nervousness before hand (for days), and the absence of sleep. We also got videos (Casey, Tina, Rebecca, Erin and I). Yes I screamed, no I didn’t pee my pants, and I still have all my teeth (the ones I started with anyway). Those are the questions I am getting asked.
I recommend it!
Thank you to all our fans that showed up to support us (Sharon and Dave, Christopher and his mom, Rebecca’s parents, and Sarah and Hank!)

  1. That looks awesome. I wish we could have been there. Or, at least I wish I could have. I’m pretty sure Carly has no interest in skydiving.

  2. I am thinking about doing this for my 50th birthday in June 2008. Do you have any advice? Like you wish you would have done something different or asked more questions. You seemed to be happy with Sky Dive Twin Cities. Anything you would suggest.
    Thanks, Mary
