Kissing in freefall
I have just had the most amazing jump in my short jumping career. Jumped out at 14000 for a BRel (No 8) had a great jump achieved all objectives. On wave off, my JM kisses me in freefall. I know this is common, but as it was totally unexpected it was like losing my virginity. I am still blown away. After this had my first mal (lineover) and cutaway, and landed safely. The cutaway I had trained for, the kiss I hadnt. Any comments or freeback on similar experiences would be appreciated
I cant wait to get a smack on the lips myself!!! i'd have to wait until i can actually mangage to stable myself in the air to try any funky shit!!! But HEY!!! i've gotten many kisses blown to me, and that'll do for now. Man...if my jump master kissed me.....EW!!!! (Sorry Jules!!! love ya darlin!!!) hee hee hee
I agree with the surprise part. My coach on about jump 15 flew over to my left side and was doing something with my container. Being a student, I thought "Oh shit, I must have really screwed something up". An instant later she flew back around in front of me, smiled, grabbed my wrists, came right up and kissed me. Wow, what a shock. When we landed, I said "What the hell was all THAT about?". She said the flap over my reserve pin had come loose (velcro) so she closed it. She didn't want me to worry, so she kissed me. Whew!! Very nice though.
Kiss pass at break off, with someone on a student jump.........serious question here.... "Did you remain flat and stable throughout your wave, reach and pull sequence????rockgirl???. Did you tumble or roll...AT ALL...perhaps contributing to that line over???? I am not bringing your abilities into question here......just wonderin' .............. ( tumble or backloop,, as your line stows are coming undone. and pass though a line,,, and you'd get a mal... for sure...) but if you were clean and flat at pull time......then TWO cases of beer.. darling!!!!! One for the kiss & one for the cutaway!!!!!
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a second. Stupid wuffo/newbie.dumb-a$$ question here.
Is this a tradition? When I get off static and progress through AFF is this something I should expect? If I was going out with Carol - no problem. But if its one of the guys - I might THROW that case of beer at him! (or my wife might)
