The first parachute was invented when Jack, tumbling haplessly from his titanium beanstalk, used a purloined pair of giant underpants to steady his fall. Glide to earth safely with today's deal: $129 for a tandem jump at Skydive Greensburg (a $259 value). On a tandem jump, you'll leap into the void from a plane 1,300 ft in the air strapped to one of Skydive Greensburg's experienced, USPA-rated instructors, who can whisper reassuring nothings in your ear as the pair of you hurtle toward the ground at up to 120 mph during a 60-second free fall. When the instructor deploys your shared parachute at around 5,000 ft, the two of you will have 5 minutes of relaxing glide time before gently landing back on solid ground. Stick around to pick up a professionally edited DVD of your jump (an additional $89) or to hook up your RV ($10 a day, also not included) at Skydive Greensburg's nearby campsite.
