    I have a friend thats certified with hundreds of jumps that was talking to me about it and it seems like a lot of fun.

    There is this site I found http://skydivingbaltimore.com/ that I'm thinking about.

    It doesn't have prices on it but my friend said between $190-$250 for the class and your first tandem jump.

    Laney is coming to Baltimore to visit in June and we are considering doing it, anyone ever jumped before?

    I did a tandem jump for something like $100. It was pretty fun.

    Laney just said she really wants to, so as soon as she knows the exact dates I will call and make a reservation.

    Do it man. Its once in a lifetime experience. I've done it twice and it's fucking freaky and dope in the same time.

    I am pretty sure I would have a heart attack on the way down.

    My friend has his own chute and everything, he loves it.

    I would love to get proper certified so I could go whenever, but its a pretty big expense at that point.

    It isn't as scary as you'd think. You only have the free-fall feeling for the first few seconds, and then you're just falling at a constant speed and it feels like you're flying.

    The site said for the first jump, its tandem. So you get a 70 second free fall then a 7-9 min ride down.

    But after like 3 seconds you hit terminal velocity and then it just feels like you're flying. The first few seconds are by far the coolest part.

    I've never gone bungee jumping, but it looks like it would be more fun. The tandem part really killed it for me.

    I see no reason to ever jump off a perfectly good airplane.

    I'd post in here and say yes I've been, but you might flame me for being non-mma.

    I jumped at 15k. It cost $200 US. By far one of the coolest things I've ever done. It's so relaxing
