The Jump Part 2


"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."
-Jack London

that video was great-having the music in the background during the jump was a very nice touch too...

BTW-were you at the LTR this morning? I saw a bunch of Hellgaters on the grass near baggage after I was done and I *thought* I saw you, but wasn't sure. oh well, there's always Club Champs (I have a feeling that one will be crawling with all the local bloggers! :) )

Nice music selection for the background....not that you really need much more to make skydiving an amazing experience to recreate:)

I echo your brother's comment.

That was amazing to watch. Really, really cool. It's interesting to see someone you blog with on the other side of the country actually have 3-D capability also.

The video was truly inspiring, as well as the Jack London quote. I gotta go show my husband and kids.

That was sweet. Especially the look on your face when you were watching the others leave the plane before you.

You could tell when you finally relaxed an started enjoying yourself.

Awesome.

Holy shit. How did I miss this. That is freaking sweet. I've done bungee jumping but sky diving still makes me nervous. That must have been an awesome experience

Josh,
I finally watched the video. You are a sick dude!!!! I was inspired when I watched an ironman and I said I have to do one. When I watched your video that was the furthest from my mind. I know Joel would love to do it again. Maybe you two can do it together. Have fun!!! Janine
