AFF Graduation!!!

May 26, 2007

Wow, yesterday was one of the best days of my life. I arrived at The Farm and we hung around for a little bit while things began winding up. The day started out slow…and progressively got faster, with more fun! That’s what I love about The Farm, they don’t try to break records, they take […]

Yesterday my 2007 Skydiving Information Manual arrived in the mail.  I decided to pick it up and read it in hopes of absorbing more useful information sink in.  While I have been waiting until I had the time to jump again, I have been reading this book and taking the tests at the end of […]

On Sunday, May 6th I headed out to my first new dropzone (DZ), The Farm, at around 10am. There was a pretty decent crowd. They had a swooping competition over the weekend. Due to inclement weather the event was slightly halted on the day prior. This morning wasn’t looking good either, but I drove out […]

Unsure where this is heading

May 3, 2007

I began this blog as I began to Skydive. I am not sure what useless crap I will post here, but perhaps some of it will be useful to someone else who is beginning or thinking about it. Maybe some of you more experienced men and women will feel compelled to drop a comment correcting […]
