I take each jump one at a time, learn something and have a great time!

Parachute Packing Course

Sunday, I showed up at my DZ (The Farm), but winds were unfavorable for my experience level. They soon got a lot worse too. Hans suggested I get one of the more experienced guys to show me the ropes on packing a parachute.

Easy right? How hard could this be?

Wrong! This small feat that some like Charlie can do in just a few minutes time took me hours to comprehend and practice over and over again. Packing my own parachute is important to me. When I get my own gear and head to another DZ while on vacation, I want to know what the hell I’m doing with my gear. So I asked several people, watch others pack their parachutes and repeated each step over and over again for hours.

Perfect? Hardly, but I feel like I have a clearer understanding what it takes. And I would be comfortable jumping my own pack; hopefully later this week/weekend!
