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
Plane: $2 millionParachute: $7,000Tandem jump + videos: $270Jumping out of a plane + experiencing the thrill of your lifetime: Priceless— See-ming Lee, 2007-08-17
I'm ready to change my life, so this weekend, on August 11th, 2007 (Saturday), I went up to Skydive The Ranch in upstate New York for my first skydive with my co-workers from IconNicholson, Eduardo F. Ortiz (LinkedIn) and skydiver extraordinaire Colin Sutherland (LinkedIn).
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 dropping out of a plane 15,000 ft above ground and flying tandem with Steve (Utah) Webb — a skydiving pro with 7,700 jump experience — for the thrill of my lifetime.
Also see SML Skydive = See-ming Lee + Skydiving (Flickr Set) for photographs shot on the same day:
Note: Those shaky and some might say 'creative' photographs polluting my stream are the results of my camera being high-jacked by amateurs <sigh>... This is one of the reasons why I don't like people using my camera. Obviously, if you see me in the stream, I didn't take that photo!
