Another semester, another jump. And a day with weather unsurpassable. The weekend of Easter, SMU Outdoor Adventures and some very brave, possibly insane participants took to the skies with the aid of SkyDive Dallas. The day was perfectly clear with toy-story clouds and visibility for miles and miles. Life-changing only scratches the surface of what a dive can do for someone. Its really all most of us can think about now. There’s always the exhilaration of fear at the thought of jumping out of a perfectly good airplane but once out the door, it is a whole new world with the infinite views and weightlessness. I can see why some of the guides who flew with us have been jumping for years if not decades. All in all: Lives changed, fears were conquered and friends were made. Just another typical day with SMU OA!
