I Can Fly!

Aaron and I went on a little getaway to Ogden, Utah, this weekend for a little belated b-day celebrating. I gave Aaron a gift certificate to iFly, a skydiving simulation company, that supposedly makes you feel like you "are really skydiving."

Our instructor gave us a quick lesson on hand signals that he would use in the wind tunnel to help us fly correctly, suited us up in a jumpsuit, kneepads, the tightest goggles I've ever worn, earplugs, and a helmet, and said, "Now, let's go have some fun. Don't forget to smile!" Well, everyone in our group was a little bit nervous. Who wouldn't be with all that safety gear on? I had visions of falling flat on my head and sustaining severe neck injuries, crippling myself for life. Wouldn't that be a great story to tell.

"Vanessa, why are you paralyzed from the neck down?"

"Well . . . I was in this wind tunnel, PRETENDING to sky dive, and somehow fell on my head. It's never happened to anyone before or since!"

With these thoughts in my head, I stepped into the wind tunnel, stuck my arms out in front of me, and I . . . SMILED!!! I followed the instructor's directions to a 'T'! I never stopped smiling. Because my mouth is partially open when I smile, I ended up with a severely dry throat and sore cheeks. The good news is . . . I didn't fall on my head.

In the video, please notice Aaron's noticeable lack of enjoyment, and then compare that to my scary perma-grin. Who do you think is having more fun?!

That looks totally awesome.

Very funny! :) My favorite part is you walking across at the end with the wind blowing against you. It looks like you had fun. After doing this, would either of you actually Sky-Dive?

Michelle said...

I would have been thinking how fun that looked but since you pointed it out, I couldn't stop looking at your faces! LOL

Kristin said...

Those cheerleading lessons really paid off...you have the best perma-grin! Looks fun.

Dear Vanessa,

As Valentine's Day approaches it reminds me of my skydiving adventure from a year ago on VD (No not that kind). Livingston bought me a solo package and on the way to the airport our insurance agent called me and wondered if the two million dollar coverage that Livingston took out on me would be enough. Needless to say, I did not use the loving gift that "Psycho" lovingly gave to me.

Speaking of bowel movements, Livingston has affectionately called his, among others, "blasting a doogie,"dropping anchor,"releasing a depth charge," and, my favorite worthless saying, "taking a Tarzan!" He has always been an Edgar Rice Burroughs fan.

Now that the day is bottoming out I will say goodnight and best wishes to you and your family.

Mary

Since I have been real skydiving 4 times, I've always wondered how much a windtunnel feels like freefall? Whether it does or not, it still looks like a lot of fun!

How fun! I think my husband would LOVE doing that! So, does this mean you guys will be doing the real thing in the near future:)? Great smile;)! Thanks for sharing!

Great footage! You go dare devils!

Wow, you really DID smile the whole time. I was laughing so hard. I'm super curious if it's an approximate simulation. I can't imagine it could be THAT close with your instructor manhandling you the whole time...
