The Drop! Finally.

And here it is. "Full" version of my parachute jump in the last days of July. I can watch the pictures and videos times and times again and the sensation is still totally unique. Totally new and totally unforgettable. Iggy, that's definitely not only the experience, but also the present of a lifetime! :)

YAY me and all!



P.S. I noticed some errors in the video, but I just couldn't go through another round of editing and rendering. Colour me lazy. :)

In the hands of that guy doesn't look like a bad place to be. ;)

But I definitely wouldn't want to drop from the sky. You are a brave man. :D

Wow. Wow. Wow. AND you composed the music for it??? W-O-W.

Have I mentioned that you're slightly crazy???

At least the guy was holding onto you the whole time, which seems like the safest possible way to do this kind of ordeal.

Iggy rules! I believe I am correct in observing that Iggy remained safely on the ground throughout? You know, I really like Iggy.

Go you!

I did a fixed line jump a few years ago and have wanted to do a tandem freefall ever since - hoping to do it next year following my 40th birthday!

Love the video! I have to agree, the free-fall sensation is the most wonderful feeling in the world. When my leg finally heals up I will hopefully be able to finish my skydiving certification. There is nothing that compares to it.

Brian was looking over my shoulder as I watched this. During the first part, before he realised what it was about, he saw you on the floor with the guy getting in a position above you.

He looked puzzled and remarked "I... I... didn't know your friend in Slovenia was doing porn nowadays..."
