NEVER will I do that in a million years!!!

Because I know that I would be the lucky one whose parachute wouldn't open... :-)

Ah you think too much.

And if it didn't open? I'd die a happy man. :)

Oh hellz no!!

I'm with Roy - I'd be the one where the chute didn't open.
As a matter of fact, I made reservations back in 2000 for a jump like this for my birthday. A day or two later, I was watching tv when one of those 'Amazing Videos' programs came on. One of the segments contained a video taken by an accompanying photographer. When one of the tandems he was filming 'chute didn't open, he swooped down, and in a one-in-a-million chance, was able to grab the reserve and pull it (the instructor had gone unconscious), saving them.

I would've shat. I cancelled my reservations shortly thereafter.

You look a bit 'Oh fuck...what am I doing?!?!' in the first moments at the plane door, lol....

Now now, some things just have to be done. Regardless all fears and second thoughts. :)

By the way - where is this?

At the very last second, it looks like the little tip of land sticking out might be Piran. But, hey, I've never been and am just guessing.
Do I see snow-capped alps off in the distance or just clouds?

You looked like you had to really prep yourself for the jump with those few deep breaths. :)

Oh, yeah..., OMG!

It was actually gasping for air, because it took me by surprise what I couldn't breathe normally at who knows what speed that plane was flying with. :)

But my god it was fantastic!!! :)
