This video was taken on June 30, 2006 and marked my first skydiving experience in Washington Wine Country… I’m just glad it was a tandem jump! Words can’t express the anticipation, fear, leaving the plane (that was the worst), the rush of air and then free falling 8,000 feet in 60 seconds… believe me, you don’t feel like you’re falling. (I do have a fear of heights and have a tendency to want to… “you know”, so I stopped all fluid intake at midnight)
After the parachute opens and jerks you upward the beauty and the absolute quiet is spell binding. Another 5-7 minutes floating the remaining 5,000 feet to your target and we just tapped down and walked toward cheering friends.
Friday, Aug 14th, 2009 will be the 4th summer we are featuring tandem skydiving at the winery.
Only 20 “Tandem Jumps” Available Jump times will be scheduled throughout the day. Jumpers will meet with the Skydiving Team at the winery before heading to the airport.
Jumpers are invited to bring a picnic, family and friends, and spend the day at the winery.
Cost: $225 paid to Kapowsin with your reservation. For an additional fee Kapowsin will make a video like this one of your personal jump experience.
For an additional $25 at Winery you can include lunch, wine tasting and a “Working Girl First Jump Club” t-shirt
