On Saturday I had an opportunity to skydiving again with Skydive Hawaii.
The first thing that I noticed when I got to the dropzone, was that Skydive Hawaii has gone digital with their check-in process which allows for literally no waste of paper during the check in process.
The first time I went skydiving… I have to be honest in that I was totally nervous. Now after skydiving a few times… the nerves are still there… but at least the butterflies have left!
The last time I went skydiving, I set a Hawaii Tandem RECORD for the highest tandem jump where we jumped from 21,000 feet (4 miles ups) and had to use oxygen tanks. The temperature at that altitude was said to be negative 57 degrees below zero!
This latest jump was said to be at about 12,000 – 13,000 feet so it wasn’t nearly as scary as the last one.
Here is a video of me getting my groove on again!
I’d like to thank the friendly staff at Skydive Hawaii for hooking me up with the pictures and DVD of my jump. I’d also like to thank Sonny, T.K., Frank, Bryan and Nelson for taking care of me while I was out there!
I still can’t wait to skydive on the Big Island with Hawaii Island Skydiving!
