Jumping From Airplanes from Blue Ridge Outdoors on Vimeo.

A wise man once said, “If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. If you want to experience the element, then get out of the vehicle.” So I got out of the vehicle…two miles above solid ground with only my trusted guide and a parachute strapped to his back. Video provided by the wonderful Chris Whittey at the DC Skydiving Center. And yes, I did say we were going to “rock some air.” Don’t judge me…I was nervous.
