fRee Falling!… yeah!

parachWell, well… Finally, incredibly, amazingly… I did it!…

Last friday with a team of adventurers including my lovely Girlfriend and two more friends we made our giant leap… Into the void! 3000mts of free falling, how cool was that?… extemelly cool…

Arrival to Normandy, le Havre airport, sign up, have the briefing and a long long wait that allowed time for all the fears to settle down and grow… We were scheduled on plane number 10 and we waited for more than 5 hours in the hangar, seeing the people landing and no smile in their faces, looking at the frightened ones sitting on the ground after having jumped and hated it… What dorks! impossible… are we going to like it or not…

Finally get into the plane, final check for the harnesses, tighten here and there, the plane that climbs slowly until reaching the 3000mts, I am sitting in front of the door, at the ready to be the first to jump (lucky me) at the time the green light appears and the door starts to open i wonder if i will be able to do it, i can see now torught the door, tiny little green fields down in the distance… the clouds and the horizon… The adrenaline pumping in an effort to overcome fear, my pilot askes me if i’m ready, no I’m not, but i am as ready as i will ever be!…

Next thing i know i’m falling to the ground at 200km/h… i dont have time to be scared what a sensation, it is freedom, a total disconnection of everything known and even more, nothing compares to the thrill and i’m not scared at all… I’m flying, not attached to the ground anymore, suspended anymation an state of bliss… The earth pulling me down and the wind blowing… i cant describe the feeling of utter freedom you achieve, there is no time for fear nor need to  it is wonderful, until you feel the pull of the breaking parachute… then the main one that opens and stops you the pull is nasty, why did it stopped? well it had to… now it is time to fly,  pulling the controls fighting the wind approaching to the landing circle, a few hard turns and landing… It is over… Back to the ground to be a mortal human being, one that cant wait to  jump again!…
