*Get your airgasm on*


*nextNY: link up in the sky*


Spring has sprung and the blue skies are just too delicious.

I'm looking for some fellow nextNYers to go skydiving with. If you've never done it before, well here's your chance. If you have, then what are you waiting for?


If you haven't tried it yet but have been thinking about it, I can't emphasize enough how incredible it is -- the feeling of flight (no, it doesn't feel like you're falling), the freedom, the beauty of unfettered sky. And oh yeah, terminal velocity.


Fave local dropzone is Skydive Cross Keys/Freefall Adventures. The vibe is chill and friendly and the coaches are world-class.


Please add your name to the list if you'd like to go for a cheeky jump. You can also check out/join the NY skydiving meetup group. The meetup group's next jump is Sat, May 19th, but if you can't make that, I can pretty much be convinced to go any random wkend that we agree upon. Heck, let's go now.


Estimated costs: a tandem jump costs $179 if you buy it online. That includes the class, gear, and jump with tandem instructor. They give you a jumpsuit to wear over your clothes so you can just wear something comfortable and sneakers. If you want a video/dvd of the jump, that's an extra $85.


Experienced jumpers: $22/jump (much more cost-effective to get your license, which you can do in 8-9 jumps, if you decide you like it enough)


Blue skies!
