ive always had a dream of skydiving but i was always too heavy. You have to be 250 to be able to do it. This was my first goal and this morning i hit it. I should be taking the jump within the next few weeks. i cant wait!!!

Wow! What a great victory! I used to skydive when I was -ahem- a bit younger and always loved it. You will too!

Are you tandem jumping? They didn't do that when I used to jump-you were on your own-but I think tandem is a great introduction and if you get bit by the bug you'll be jumping on your own in no time. Enjoy!!

What would make a grown man jump out of a perfectly good plane?

But congrads have fun - I will wait here on the ground

As a former skydiver you are making an incorrect assumption that skydiving planes are "perfectly good planes"...most of us felt safer once we left the plane than when we were in it!🤣

You're gonna love it! If you haven't already considered it, look into going AFF so you can enjoy the descent all on your own and take your time going down. Have fun and congratulations 😊

congrats - thats a major NSV and a great goal! I went 1 time about 10 years ago and it is terrifying and exhilarating. Hope you love it!

Did you ever go?? I’ve gone a few times in my life and want to again post surgery now. It’s so much fun. I’m also in NJ and wondering how the place you went to was! 😀
