Had previously jumped from 10,000 feet, but this was so much more amazing. We actually had a clear day and could see both coasts and amazing scenery. The video was good, but not as great as I was expecting.

I only did the 9000 feet. But should’ve done the 19000 feet one. They are all very experienced . Personally for me the first three seconds out of the plane was the most scariest.

No, on the phone and yes, on the glasses or contacts. They make you wear goggles, so I would guess contacts would be better.
