    Don't worry! You can go skydiving even if you don't have knees left. It'll be tandem jump so you'll have instructor strapped to your back who will help with landing and also, if your knee is really bad or have injury, let them know and they can do slide landing (forgot the exact name) so instead of hitting the ground with feet, they'll slide in (legs straight and landing on your buttocks & slide to ground till you halt).

    If you do go skydiving, try to find a place that jumps from 13,000 ft. Most tandem is done at 10,000 ft so if you can find a place that's 13k ft, you get slightly longer freefall (talking seconds) but it is awesome.

    Judging by your avatar, there's nothing wrong with your eyesight. :-)

    Did my first jump on the weekend (was a b'day gift). Absolutely brilliant! Jumped out at 14,000ft for a 60sec free fall.

    The guy I was strapped to was bigger than me, we fell like a brick, but the landing was completely soft (and standing up) - as in softer than if I was landing from just 1ft.
