Why Jump Out of a Perfectly Good Airplane?

I figure it is better than jumping out of a bad one!  

I keep seeing people posting on Facebook about going sky diving.  They usually talk about being afraid or saying "I have always wanted to but..." But what?? Get out and live!!  I say the same thing "GO DO IT!" Until the first time I jumped I was the same way; I kept saying "I have always wanted to sky dive" so I put it on my list of 40 Things to do Before I was 40My opportunity came when Crispin Cider hosted their first Crispin Adventure.  It was the way to make the commitment to get it done.  I did it and I loved it! I want to do it again.  Because I wanted to do it again  it is #7 on the list of 12 Things to do in 2012.  I am looking for people to go with me on jump #2.  

Questions I get asked?
Why did you jump out of a perfectly good airplane? I figure it is better than jumping out of a bad one! I wouldn't want to learn to jump out of a plane when it is going down, besides they usually do not have parachutes on board.

Were you scared? I have a slight fear of heights, but I never was scared.  You go through a class and I did a tandem sky dive which meant you jumped with an expert.  My jump master happened to teach the class, his name is Gene and he has over 6,600 jumps and is a pilot.  

Is it expensive?  It depends where you go.  It is about $200.  Worth every penny!!

Would you do it again?  In a heart beat!

What was the best part? When you put your feet out the door of the plane and realize there is nothing below but sky for about 13,000 feet.
