    You won’t be able to fly too well with a shoulder injury.

    Never tried it and not sure that I would.

    haha the shoulder should hold up, Bull.

    Why wouldn’t you do it?

    Funnily enough some people find jumping out of a perfectly sound aeroplane crazy…. personally i say go for it, your shoulder will be fine as long as you dont go ass over and land on it.

    But I gotta.
    Its for a mate’s bucks party.

    You think jumping out and falling is the scariest, but the scariest part is before, taking off and waiting in the plane.

    It’ll be over before you know it.

    I will never do it, makes absolutely no sense at all to me.

    I was searching around on YouTube for videos to pump me up and I found this

    He sums up my feelings exactly.

    For some reason i don’t think its that easy, unbuff.

    That vid i posted has really got be freaked out.
    I don’t know why. Maybe i see myself in him.

    But i’m thinking of bailing out of the whole idea…

    Its one of those retarded things u have to do, or else it’ll bug u for the rest of ur life, your this far now, why turn back. The free fall is about 10seconds mate, if its your first time tandem, with the rush of adrenalin and shock you won’t notice it.

    The more u think about it, make posts, thread, discuss, your going to eventually psyche yourself out and not do it. Let your mate know your up for it, and just stop thinking about it from now, till your up in the plane

    I did bungee jumping before a sky dive, and I was jumping off 10meter jetties before bungee jumping so I kinda grew a tolerance to speed and free fall, but I nearlly had panic attacks before those 2 things coz I didn’t stop thinking about it.

    Hey, you might even pass out and miss the whole thing lulz 😉

    Thanks John I think you’re right. I am probably over-thinking it.

    My mate just sent me a link to these photos of that skydiving banker dude getting tattooed before his jump. Kind of like fulfilling the bucket list just in case… http://www.flickr.com/photos/36022659@N02/

    Not a bad way of looking at it actually. Life’s too short not to things crazy..

    Not a fan of heights really although I have bungy jumped. Don’t much like the idea of strapping a strange man to my back either. haha

    Just do it. Keep telling yourself that you have virtually no chance of dying so it is just another experience and one that you won’t forget. If it is freaking you out this much, then the rush will be twice what you are expecting.

    Yeh, enough talk.
    I’m gonna tell the boys I’m in.
