If I Went Sky Diving
If I went sky diving, where would I like to go? Wait, if I went sky diving, first I'd need to go for sky diving lessons. I do not have the foggiest idea about parachutes, harnesses or altimeters. Should I start with tandem sky diving or should I attempt accelerated freefalling? Perhaps I should begin in a sky diving simulator. All of these terms are popping up at me but I haven't a clue. Yes, if I went sky diving, I'd certainly need some very basic instruction. I would probably register with a sky diving center where I am guaranteed to receive instruction from experienced and certified individuals.
I would also be taught about the appropriate gear needed for my jump, and in stead of running out and buying all new equipment I could rent the items I needed. After learning the basics of sky diving; prepared and eager, if I went sky diving I think I would start in Italy. Because sky diving is such a popular sport, there are dropzones all over the world. I'd like to find one in Italy where I could jump out of an aircraft into a beautiful picturesque location. I've always wanted to go to Italy so this would be the perfect opportunity to see visit the area and practice my skills, if I went sky diving.
From what I've learned, if I went sky diving, I'd definitely start with the tandem jump. Because this method is said to be easy and quite safe, I'd try this first. I know I'd be harnessed to a master sky diver and makes me feel much better. If I went sky diving, I'd skip the accelerated freefall, that's too advanced for me. I'd stick with the large parachute and take a tandem sky dive. If I went sky diving, I'd like a friend to go with me. An experience like this might only come once in my lifetime. I'd like to share it with someone special. If I went sky diving, perhaps my husband or my sister could jump with me. Freefalling from 15000 feet with a friendly face a short distance away, would be comforting.
Realizing someone special would forever share this memory with me, would make the adventure awesome, if I went sky diving. If I went sky diving, I'd get on the Internet and search every possible website for sky diving information. I'd look for material related to sky diving locations, equipment, techniques, requirements, anything the Internet would provide. If I went sky diving, I'd definitely want to be well informed regarding what to expect once I arrived at the dropzone. I'd need to know what was provided at the dropzone in the way of food and lodging. There is so much important information I would require if I went sky diving. I'd get my hands on sky diving books and magazines. I would log on to a sky diving message board and probably ask questions. If I went sky diving, it would certainly be a big deal.
