If you think riding is fun, try flying an airplane, skydiving or jetskiing.

So realizing now that I am typing this at work, sitting at my desk, fixing other people's broken s*it, I am REALLY tempted to grab my jacket, put the boots on and head out to lunch. Just because.

I've jetskied, I snowmobile (which is just as relaxing as the bike). I'll let the pros fly my planes, and I sure as hell am not jumping out of one unless there is no other option.

I've been told you don't need a parachute to skydive.
But, you do need a parachute to skydive more than once.
