For the longest time a jump out of an airplane has been in my bucket list..it was an incredible feeling and sensation that is not comparable to anything else I had experienced. Yes, windsurfing in 60 mph gusts on Padre Island, flying loops and rolls in a stunt plane or going 120 mph on my motorcycle come close, but only close…and then, after dropping at 120 mph for about 25 seconds (you fall about 1000 ft. every 4 seconds) the swoooossh of the parachute is a very, very welcome sound. Jacob said: “Well, thank God that opened…”Amen, second that.
