I finally got a co-worker to rip my skydiving video from the DVD and give it to me in .avi format so i could upload it to YouTube. My sister and I went to Skydive Orange for our first skydive. The free fall was for about 50 seconds, in which I fell about 1.5 miles, and then the floating down was about 5-6 minutes. For some reason I wasn’t that scared, but only because I didn’t really think about what I was doing at the time. Maybe I should have, considering I was jumping out of a plane from 13,000 ft, falling at a rate of 120 mph, and then pulling a parachute at 5,500 ft. Definitely worth the video, and I definitely would want to do it again soon if it were a little cheaper. I highly recommend anyone to go skydiving, even if you’re scared of heights.
I picked out the music for the video as well, Tool & Soundgarden…enjoy!Vodpod videos no longer available.
