    In the pool.
    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.

    I'm with your wife!! No way!

    Glad Walt & Mrs. VB had a wonderful safe experience. I'm sure that memory will last a lifetime! Were you able to take pics on the way down? I can't image being able to figure out how to use a camera!

    Mrs WVB is one very brave lady. As is her dear husband!

    Never, not even for a huge sum of money and or chocolate cake would I ever even consider it.
    Heck, I would not even get into that tiny plane.

    Kudos to you both for being brave and daring.

    Cannot wait to see the photos.

    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..

    Any beach!!
    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!!

    Wow Walt that is awesome. I wish I had stayed on the beach today so I could say I saw you guys floating down (watched someone do it yesterday). You can tell us all about it when we meet up

    Awesome! How amazing that your DW got her wish and you went along with her. Very brave of both of you! And, for sure, very exiting as well!

    Cannot wait to see the pics!
