I suck in my nerves and focus on the conversations happening around me. A few jumpers are singing, some are discussing tricks they hope to accomplish on the way down, and another is crouched in the corner writing the details of this dive in a well-worn notebook. Clearly, I am the only one terrified. All of a sudden, the door is open. One by one, the divers before me jump with glee. My tandem partner signals me to start moving toward the door. I inch forward with my heart pounding and my mind swirling. The plane is starting to feel empty now, which signals that it is almost my turn. I feel the wind nipping at my jump suit, as I cover the last inch of the plane floor leaving my feet dangling freely. In an instant, my partner throws us from the lip of the plane. We are falling fast through a cloud, and I am shocked how cold it is. I can see rain drops and frost on my goggles as I gasp for air. Within minutes, we break free and the parachute billows above me. Instantly a peacefulness replaces my panic as my eyes soak up the view that is all around me. I see sunbeams streaming through the clouds, illuminating snow-capped mountain peaks, gorgeously green fields, fast-flowing white water rivers, and rain spilling from the sky onto a nearby fjord. It is a splendid view that only required 13,000 feet to see. 92 sept/oct 2014 southfloridaluxuryguide.com
