Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane

Sounded like a good time so I figured I would give it a try. It was good times indeed. I opted for the video and pictures which you can see below.

Has anyone else had the opportunity or the inclination to skydive?

Do free-fall parachute insertions count?

I'd like to sometime, but it'll probably be a few years before I do.

It looks like a great time.

If you don't mind my asking, about how much does that set you back?
