Friday Adventure in SF
Only Simon and I knew of The Good ‘n’ Dangerous Plan, other than Amy & Eric, obviously. We drove a good ways to Union City, and pulled into a parking lot. Stunned silence filled the bus/van as we all stared up at iFlySFBay.com. That’s right — we were going indoor skydiving! Mom and Dad decided not to participate, but the rest of us (even 4-year-old Luke!) suited up into our outfits. It was definitely one of the coolest things that I have ever done. I am SO glad that they found it for us to do!
You definitely feel like your face is going to peel off; the wind is pretty extreme. And it’s basically like that scene in the original Charlie & The Chocolate Factory movie where they’re in the bubble room and they have to burp to get down or else they’ll get sucked into the fan. That was always my favorite scene in that movie.
It was seriously so much fun. I don’t know that I would ever jump out of a plane, but I would definitely do this again. It was just enough thrill! Afterwards, we loaded back up into the van/bus and the Van Master drove us through In-N-Out for milkshakes. Since we had our own transportation, we decided to make our way back into town via Coit Tower. The sun was just setting, and it was unbelievably beautiful. We enjoyed the view from the top via the rickety elevator.
Dinner was had at Buca di Beppo after a long foray through traffic. We totally stuffed ourselves full of pasta and garlic and cheese. Simon and I decided to walk back to the hotel in lieu of the bus/van and it was a good thing, too, considering how much we had eaten. Blechh. Such a bad feeling, overeating.
