I wrote this post after leading an experience for Everest on August 26th, 2012.
Everst’s Dream Series
About a month ago, I learned about Everest’s awesome Dream Series for people “who believe in living life today, not someday.” I’d like to think I fall into that category, living by my constantly evolving impossible list, and I have had the pleasure of meeting quite a few doers in the last two weeks at different Everest events.
My part in the experience started when I met up with Matt Levene, a friend from my days at BU, to rock climb at Planet Granite in San Francisco. While climbing, our conversation turned to skydiving, something he had thought about doing for awhile, but had never gotten around to following through. “Let’s go this weekend!” I said. He hesitated, and asked me a few questions about it, but ultimately said, “Alright, let’s do it!”
Skydiving with Everest
The next thing I knew, Matt had found 9 other people from the Everest community, excited about the opportunity to jump out of an airplane and plummet 14,000 feet to the ground at over 120mph! You know it’s a great group of go-getters when you can assemble 11 people to go skydiving in less than a week. This was easily the biggest group I’ve taken to the dropzone and I look forward to being a part of the Everest community now and in the future. I’m already taking at least two jumpers back this weekend to do it again!
Skydiving is an amazing experience that is difficult to describe to those who have not experienced it yet. If skydiving is something you’ve considered, but still are unsure about, I’ve listed some of the most common questions I get asked about skydiving below. Hopefully my answers encourage you to go out there and turn that bucket list of things that often fall by the wayside, into a lifestyle, influenced by an impossible list of far reaching, achieveable goals.
Why would you jump out of a perfectly good airplane?
