While singing and rocking to Tom Petty’s “Free Falling” in the car, we are heading south on Route 1 to the Florida Keys, which is ranked in the top 10 places in the world to skydive. Now I am thinking, why would you want to jump out of a perfectly fine airplane? They say that nothing can describe the rush of Free Falling and popping through those puffy white clouds and coming out the other side to shades of blue in the sky and sea. Heck, I’m fearless but jumping head first out of an airplane two and a half miles up and hurtling 130 mph? They say that nothing is better than sunshine on your face while cruising under the canopy of your parachute. As the door opens and the wind blows in, your heart starts pounding, and all of my Daredevil friends and my daughter jump.
Another spectacular day having the thrill of a lifetime, we all headed to a local Tiki Bar. While I don’t like heights, I will buy a round of tequila shots to toast them all for not throwing me out of the plane.
Skydive Key West has an unblemished safety record with years of experience and reasonable prices. Have a blast!
