Wow! Wow! WOW!!!! We were floating around in the pool on the last trip and some skydivers went over us... I'm pretty sure I could hear one of them screaming! I can't even imagine the adrenaline rush.

It was probably the biggest adrenaline rush I've ever experienced, and it lasted well after we were safely back on the ground. The view was absolutely stunning, you could see the entire island and the coast and mountains of Venezuela. Ty and Michele were awesome and had us checked out and ready to jump in no time. I cannot say enough good things about them and the entire Skydive Aruba team. DW was greatly surprised and had a wonderful time. Will post a few pics soon.
Now that is awesome. I can just get my husband to sit and fly on a plane. Never mind jumping out of one.
Would love to do that some day.
Again Happy Birthday to the lovely lady... and kudos to you for such a great surprise..
What a fabulous birthday gift!! I would love it but DH, Tom, well let's just say he would have no part of such activity. The closest I could come to it was a ride in an open cockpit (Red Barron) 1940's biplane over Martha's Vineyard! Good for you; you made her day special!!
