    Tandem Skydive for 63 old Vietnam Vet

    I wanted to do something different this birthday and hopefully the video will inspire other Vietnam vets to stay active and challenge them to stay young at heart as we age.

    Thanks bro, that first step exiting the door was a rush,but outside in free fall things happened so fast,but I would recommend everyone try this at least once and it's safe with a tandem instructor in control .

    I knew you had it you to do these kind of things. You need to come back to Utah and I will take you out in the House Montain Range to the top of Natch Mountain. Then you could get one of them flying suits and jump off and fly. Notch Mountain is second only to El.Capetain in vertacle drop. I have seen vidos of people jumping off and flying.

    Thanks G.G. I 'd like to come back someday ,but base jumping is way out of my league of experience. I may do another tandem before going to the next level ,it was awesome though.
