Have you ever been in freefall? It's not so bad. For sure, you need to cope with uncertainty. If your parachute fails, you could've pulled sooner - had all that extra time, altitude, to fix the problem. And the price to pay for that is you didn't get quite so much time to cut loose, and express.
Freefall is not so bad. It does takes a certain type of person to enjoy it.
Both in skydiving, and in life.
To my old buddies, guys my last jump was Aug 2006. I will get in the air again. I promise.
