Quadriplegic 1st time skydiving! Can't Post

Hello all! I'm 34 yr old man from Chester NY. I became a C5/6 quad in 1988 and made my first tandem jump from 13,500 feet 2 days ago. The guys (and gals) at www.skydivetheranc.com in Ulster County, NY, were great! They knew exactly how wrap me up, toss me out, and land real smooth!AWSOME! I can't wait to go back. I'll be posting up pictures and hopfully some video on my site www.insaneinthedomain.com in the near future. See ya'll up in the air! Smile Rich tke55@yahoo.com

COOL
USPA has a artical awhile back about jumping with qauds and others like you..so I'm not surprised that the staff at the ranch knew what to do..welcome to the sky's.. Hope you plan to do it again..

Congrats, Rich! Way cool. Isn't it AMAZING?!?! I'm a sky newbie, too. Going back for my second jump this weekend and can't wait!

I look forward to hearing how your next jump goes!
