Well Rachel and I crossed yet another item of her Things Before I Die (or what some call Bucket List). We went skydiving today. We found a place that let us free fall for 30 seconds by ourselves (without having to go tandem) on our first jump. Two instructors jump out behind you and fall beside you and bull your parachute for you after 25 seconds or so. It was amazing. You get up to speeds of 120 miles per hour and you have the beautiful Pinery and the shoreline of Lake Huron as your backdrop. You really can’t beat it. Then you have to parachute by yourself to the landing zone with listening to your instructors voice over radio. He lands you right on target. Overall it was an amazing experience and I’m sure we’ll be doing it again since it’s so close (in Grand Bend). Here are some pictures. You can see a bunch more here.
