Achievement Unlocked: Skydiving

Scotte Ellis, me, Chris Pirillo, Jay Batson, Dave Curlee and Lee Odden think we have the Right Stuff.

Had an amazing adventure with the US Army’s Golden Knights parachute team recently. I was attending Open Camp (a great technology and social media conference organized by Cali Lewis and Jon Pozadzides) and was invited to jump with The Golden Knights as “an incentive.” It was an an easy yes for me as I figured that when the world’s best at something asks you to join them, you should pretty much always agree.

I ended up doing a tandem jump in Dallas with the very capable SSG Jon Ewald on August 26, 2010. It was my first experience skydiving and the Golden Knights made the whole experience feel safe and exhilarating. Thanks to John Pozadzides, Cali Lewis, SFC Dave Herwig and Lt. Col. Joe Martin for making this all possible.

Check out the video below and look how my feet look for solid ground as I leave the plane. Involuntary hilarity. Many more photos from my jump are on Flickr.
