Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
— Mark Twain
Back in 2001, Else-Marie Östling, the global CTO of IconMedialab (now LBi International), told me that skydiving will change my life.
I'm ready to change my life, so this weekend, on August 11th, 2007 (Saturday), I went up to Skydive The Ranch http://skydivetheranch.com in upstate New York for my first skydive with my co-workers from IconNicholson, Eduardo F. Ortiz and skydiver extraordinaire Colin Sutherland.
Until I have time to edit the video and compose an awesome dance track to replace this raw footage (shot by Oren Peri) which contains a bit too much SML dorky moments, here's your chance to see me flying tandem with Steve (Utah) Webb, a skydiving pro with 7,700 jump experience, for the thrill of my lifetime.
