    I proposed to my longtime girlfriend last weekend...while skydiving

    Here is the video of how I proposed to my girlfriend. The day before this was filmed was our 5 year anniversary and her surprise gift was to go skydiving. Little did she know there was also a second, larger gift waiting when she landed. This video is the shortened video, sort of a preview, there will be a longer video with video footage of both freefalls included still to come.

    Very cool. Have been parachuting twice. The adrenaline rush is off the charts.

    Congrats!

    It's awesome, it was my first time every skydiving so it was quite the rush. 2 miles high and 120mph free fall!

    This is a picture from my first jump. It was a tandem jump with Don Kellner.

    Kellner is the world record holder for the most jumps. He currently has over 40,000 jumps.



    This jump came after my first wedding ended in divorce...












    when I no longer feared death.

    Congratulations to the both of you. I wish you a lifetime of happiness.

    Ditch the terribleness of that soundtrack, though.

    I used Floyd's "Learning To Fly" as the music to my skydiving video.

    Thumbs up

    Congrats to you both! I hope you realize that we watched the entire vid despite the horrid soundtrack only because your fiance is a smokeshow. On a side note her jump partner with the Jeruselam cruisers looked a little too happy strapped to her.
