OK, so you’ll jump out of an airplane from 13,000 feet in the air, and every blood cell you have will move in overdrive, and you’ll free-fall at 120 miles per hour, and if you’re doing it solo you should probably think about pulling a cord at some point. But on a clear day, after the parachute pops open and you take a deep breath, look to the north: That little thing in the distance you’ll see is Charlotte, and you’ll still be about 4,000 feet higher in the air than the Bank of America building. Enjoy the view.
