Five Reasons That you Should go out and Skydive
Does it seem insane to you that anybody would ever skydive? That people would intentionally fly way up in the sky and then jump out of an airplane or helicopter or balloon? Does that seem a little wacko?
Some people do it because it's necessary for their jobs; smokejumpers and paratroopers have to jump out of planes, because that is the only way they can get to where they are going.
But what about all those people who do it for fun? Who make a sport out of jumping from very high places, whether it's an airplane or a bridge or a high cliff? Can you imagine even one reason a person would skydive? Well, here are five:
Bragging rights and war stories; after all, if you have a skydive or two under your belt, you get bragging rights whenever people are telling war stories about all the scary things they have done. It's something you can tell your grandchildren to make them proud of their heritage. It gives you a great story to tell when you get together with friends, and as well, you will be able to 'one up' just about everybody in the room.
Also, people who skydive talk about flying. They are fascinated with the science and technology of skydiving that allows you to control your movement through the air. Whether you are part of a skydive team and do free fall formations and tricks, or you prefer to do solo skydives and enjoy the sensation of flying, skydiving is more than just falling through the air. You use your body to move the way you want to, and that's flying.
Some people like to skydive for the thrill, the adrenaline rush. Some people seem to get addicted to it because it is such a powerful rush. There is also then the matter of doing it to experience beauty and freedom. People who skydive speak rapturously of the beauty and the sense of freedom they experience. They speak of floating through the clouds, and seeing over the horizon, and they love feeling free and unfettered.
Even if going to skydive seems crazy to you, it is a perfectly sane thing to do for a lot of people. They have good reasons for enjoying skydiving; reasons that make them want to do it over and over and over again.
