Skydiving is waaaaay more fun!

I take it you did a tandem jump with an instructor strapped to your back?

The free fall is the best feeling ( I can see how those pro-skydivers get addicted to the adrenaline rush) in the world and its cool taking in the scenery once the parachute goes up!

I have tio admit though, I had a real crappy landing - the instructor told me to keep my knees up so I didn;t break my legs (or whatever) on landing ...but I didnt hear him when he said to put them down and we ended up falling in a heap on the floor.

If that wasn't bad enough then a gust of wind picked the parachute up and dragged us both backwards for about 20 meteres!!

Its all on video.....I really should edit that last bit off!

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
