It Had been a great weekend last week and it was the last jump of the day number 18 for me and as i set up for final i realized there was no wind and i was going to over shoot the landing area it was about 4oo ft and all i could see was this chain link fence and i guess i got whats called object fixation and all i could hear was my first jump schools instructors voice in my head saying "its better to hit the wall than turn low" "its better to hit ANYTHING than turn low" meanwhilst im getting closer to the wire fence i stick my legs straight out and completly oblitierate the fence do a somersault over it and land on the rental rig without a scratch (exept for some minor bruising and scrape on the side of 1 calf) Needless to say i am now "jfk" (joeyfencekiller) cant wait till this weekend so i can get up there and graduate..
blue ones

Great story... glad to hear you're Ok. You'll have to meet my friend Adrian when she gets online. Can't tell her story now - that wouldn't be fair. But once she gets the hang of dz.com I will definitely spill the beans!
