Skydiving Chapter 1: Broken legs and other assorted injuries:…
Normally I use this blog as a platform to spread news, knowledge of current world events, and give life advice on what matters most. This week, however, we are going to talk about a recent skydiving trip that was recently taken last weekend, which was very recently. If you have ever been curious about willingly jumping out of an airplane, read on. If not, feel free to
skip the blog this whole week read on as well.
After signing an enormous waiver, we are verbally confronted with the reality of the horrible horribleness that can happen to you during skydiving. The instructor was thorough and very matter-of-fact with his spiel, but nonetheless, you had this very edgy feeling about what you signed up for. After that, you get to watch this video, which also details all of the terrible terribleness that can go wrong during your jump. Following your double dose of downers, you get to sit back and relax while the winds die down to make sure it’s safe to jump. Now you sit, wait, and you mull over the facts presented to you. There is a lot of uneasy going back and forth at this time.
Once the winds were consistently calm enough, you are given your harness and presented with the person who will be strapped to you during the joyride. The harness is put on, which does not make for a good look, but at least you are getting closer to your jump! You get a clear description of what things are going to be like, the Do’s and Dont’s of tandem skydiving, and for one last time you are presented with that fact that things may go terribly, horribly wrong.
