Because it’s the most exhilarating adrenaline rush and narcotic-free high you will ever survive. That’s the answer to questions about why to jump out of a perfectly good airplane at 4000m (12,500ft). Yes, I’m talking about skydiving.
For you whuffos (skydiver speak derived from, “Jump out of a perfectly good airplane, what for”) no literally master could describe the multifaceted thrill and experience of a skydive. In all honestly, it took several jumps for me to understand what seasoned skydivers were trying to describe to me about what “Flying your body” meant. So, yes, it’s much more than falling.
We’re headed up to our DZ (that’s skydiver speak drop zone or where we have our club). That’s in Gryttjom near Tierp (about an hour north of Stockholm.) WWW.skydive.se is our club’s website (We’re Stockholm’s Skydiving Club ) If you ever thought of trying it out, come up and jump a tandem jump. If you’re really serious, send me a message and I can work you a 200kr discount.
And if you’re super serious…sign up for a course and let’s jump together.
Blue skies. I’m there now (literally as I hit publish)
