I saw this on the news Joe and it is funny but unfortunate.
I tandem jumped when I was 60 and when we landed I was ready to do it again.(BTW my wife has jumped also)
It has to be one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had. The one thing that struck me the most was at 5,000 ft the silence is deafening.

Nope, I’m not ready for that now…
... my hip is bothering me too much…
... wouldn’t want to make it worse…
... Looks like a lot of FUN though…
The most somersaults I have done, off a diving board has been four (4)...
... I bet I could break that record by several dozen from the sky! LOL
