Free Fall

This was John's birthday surprise. He figured it out literally 2 minutes before we drove up to the sky diving center, and was jumping out of the air plane about an hour later. To say he is a good sport is an understatement.
His good friend Ron and his brother David also jumped. John loved it. This is called a tandum jump, you are hooked to an experienced jumper. John loved it, said he was thrilled and scared at the same time.
If you are ever in the area check out the parachute center in Lodi, you might just find yourself signing up to jump out of an airplane.
