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

December 11, 2010

Jump 199 10 way w/ Kyle and some RW folks; got in and held my spot (slightly high) till I needed to come in for dock. Got it w/o any problems Jump 200 I didn’t know this was a milestone jump while I was doing it. I was part of the initial four man base, […]

November doesn’t rain

November 20, 2010

I have no idea what the title means; I’m falling short coming up with new/interesting titles. I think from here on out, they may mean absolutely nothing. Jump 195 Freefly sit w/Arne; brought along the camera…you may see some video footage being posted in a few more days. Jump 196 Freefly w/ Arne and SkyDave […]

Jumpin in 2010

November 6, 2010

A few more jumps in November 2010 to get things moving. Jump 193 Two way belly practicing four touch points. You fly around other person and take docks, they do same. Jump 194 Track dive; big group (almost entire plane) filled with trackers. I was right there, then I wasn’t as I lost altitude.

Jumpin Da Casa

May 31, 2009

Besides camera shake, and not always keeping the camera on subject…the biggest failure I experienced was my camera turning on and zooming into max by itself. This technical glitch cost me more wasted time…

May 11, 2009

May 9th, mark the day! Something I have been wanting to do since I began skydiving was to record video.  Today was that day! Jump #170 First skydive video I recorded.  I chased out Carter and Carl and video taped them while they practiced a head down, then practice docks on belly, then a couple […]

A cloudy day

April 14, 2009

Saturday, April 11th, I arrived at Skydive The Farm with Arne, to only find clouds, clouds and more clouds! Luckily, we were barely turn a few loads finding a few holes! Jump #168 Arne and I did a train exit and then after I finally took his hint and let go with my legs, he […]

Three more

April 6, 2009

After a delay

February 8, 2009

It has been a while since I last skydived.  In fact, this winter, due to the weekend weather, family and scouting, I just couldn’t seem to make my way out to the dropzone. Finally, it was February 8th, 2009, four days after my 36th birthday, and I was beginning my 161st jump! #161 Abhi and […]

TSA enforces security measures for skydiving

January 9, 2009

I came across an email from Skydive City which stated the TSA is trying to enforce security measures for any person who flys in an aircraft weighing over 12,500lbs (Docket No. TSA-2008-0021).  Which boils down to skydivers upon landing in a grass field near their airport being required to go through a security check similar […]

Skydive The Farm Holiday’s

December 10, 2008

On Saturday, December 6th; I met Arne out at Skydive The Farm.  Several others were there like Kyle, Edwardo, Rodrigo, DZ Chad… so many familiar faces, too many to list. The weatherman called for more sunshine than clouds and low 50’s F.  When I arrived, we had more clouds than sunshine (in fact the sun […]
