Meanwhile, back on Earth...

So I managed to "explode" my blog for a couple of days while fucking with the template... Okay, my html is not so good, I get help with that stuff. In the time between I jumped out of a plane over Lebanon ...... Maine. I went skydiving with my girlfriend and a friend who is getting married at the end of the month. I have no pictures of it, but that really doesn't matter, the experience is much more interesting and you're a bit distracted for picture taking. Stepping out of a moving plane at 14,000 feet, falling at nearly 120 mph, 9,000 ft in 60 seconds and then floating under a parachute for the last 5,000. The sureal sensation of being untethered, having no earth beneath your feet, letting gravity do what it always wants to do to you, and having no resistance. Actually you resist the force of the air you are passing through and "control" your speed by spreading out your body. Not as scary as you might think. The view was spectacular, and I would do it again.
