I made my first skydive in November of 2016. It all started with a Facebook post mentioning a contest. My local news station was asking viewers to submit a video about why you wanted to win a skydiving experience. I didn’t even hesitate, and my video was uploaded within 5 minutes of seeing that post. My reason? It was on my bucket list.
I booked my reservation for a Saturday in August. When the day came, I had to work up will power to really do it. I was so nervous the entire drive to Sibson, and kept wanting to back out. This was absolutely insane to do right before another big surgery! What was I thinking? Luckily, my family came with me for support.
