In preparation for Nick’s first skydive, in less than a month, we took a trip up to Hollywood for Nick to practice his free fall skills in the iFly tunnel.
Nick flew a total of 15 minutes, late at night after a long day and a long drive. Afterward he said he could have flown even longer. He was minimally sore the next day, but I think that’s from sleeping it off for 11 reparative hours. That, and he’s quickly gaining endurance.
He’d like to fly in the tunnel at least one more time before the big jump, which is happening on Saturday December 1st.
Watching Nick fly in the tunnel, smiling hard but flying even harder, choked me up a few times. I felt proud, like his stunning accomplishments were my own, even though I know I’d have never made it this far if I were the hurt one.
