Skydiving!

Hello Skydivers?!

Yup - this is clearly a bucket list kind of summer for us, and skydiving seems like a natural fir for this crazy group! For the majority of us this will be our first skydiving experience, and we'll be going tandem with instructors for our first time. Don't worry -we're almost all newbies to this, part of the fun is the fear and buildup!

Not sure of the actual location - with a bit of luck and planning it may be a sunset skydive onto the beach! After our event, we'll grab a very relaxed, long lunch or dinner (complete with drinks - I think I'm gonna need a stiff one after this outing!) to rehash our experience.

Cost is about $175-$250 per person, and most places have a weight limit of 225 lbs. I'll admit it - I'm terrified even thinking about this but it's been on a lot of our bucket lists for a long time, so what the heck, let's do it!

Everyone will need to pay to hold their place well in advance, for this event there will be no last minute RSVPs accepted as we have to charter a plane for this event. Please RSVP now, I'll send payment information and instructions within the next 2 weeks. Actual time of event could be anytime from morning until early evening, so be prepared for this to be at any point on this date.

By joining us for this event you hereby RELEASE and DISCHARGE it's owners, principals, affiliates, presenters, organizer, hosts and participants from any and all liability, claims, demands or causes of action that you now have, or may have in the future, for injuries, damages, death and/or economic loss of any kind or nature, arising in whole or in part out of the activities, advice or information contained herein.

    Deborah - I've been considering changing the name to ".... Hikers and Outdoor Adventurers"!

    I think it's time to change the name of this group from "--- Hikers" to "--- Hikers and Adventurers" (or make that Crazy Adventurers).

    I've done indoor skydiving before. Best 3? minutes of my life! I always wanted to try the real deal. Just the prospect of jumping out of an airplane is pretty exhilarating.

    Kayaking that weekend - fyi...Kayaking is a fun and grounded activity, in case you are thinking of adding cliff jumping to the summer calendar too!

    Can I sign up as a maybe? This wouldn't be my first time; it would be my second. I was crazy to do it the first time -- when it wasn't a tandem jump but a static line. That was 25 years ago! I can't believe I'm considering doing it again -- although I think doing it as a tandem dive is all but risk-free compared to doing it as I did originally, when it might up to me save my own life. Where is the jump going to be?
