FINALLY got my 'A' Can't Post

Hey Gang,

I'm sure everyone gets this, but I just had to share. After 7 years of sporadic jumping, recurrency training and jumps, a fractured spine, concussion sprained hip and knee, blood, sweat and beers, I FINALLY achieved my 'A' CoP. Now the real fun begins. Thanks to everyone at PST for helping me make it happen, and for putting up with me for so damn long. Thanks Jeff for my FINAL 'A' evaluation jump; it was awesome. It's absolute proof, if I can do it, YOU can do it!!!

Blue skies to EVERYBODY!! :)

Guess what? My timing couldn't be better :) Just received the last sig for my 'A'. Finished the Brian Germain Canopy Course. Just started reading an autographed ;) copy of Parachute and it's Pilot, and already, I'm learning a ton of crap I'd never thought of before. I'm also finding myself having A LOT more fun on my most recent jumps, than I've had in a long time.

Just feeling great about how things are going, jumping-wise. That is all :)

Blue Skies.

I'm real happy for you, and watching you come down from your graduating jump (I have a photo of you and the coach walking back from your landing.. both of you look happy)...

I'm real proud of you, most specifically for your determination to stick on, and keep at it....

I wish I will have the determination you have.

Now, as for that A, B, S, E, stuff (its just B.A.S.E. acronum and propably he was being 'silly' by asking when your going to do your building, span/bridge and earth jumps if you did your a=arial).

It matters not, for you've done something that perhaps no one else in your situatioin has accomplished.... I have not heard of it anyways.

good on YOU, and keep up this great work....
soon enough you will end up with that B, (and the c.a.s.e. kind)

hugs,
-minna
