FINALLY got my 'A'
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!!!
That's what my S & TA said, lol. He said 'You know what's next, right?' I said 'Um. . . . . . . a lot of fun???' He said 'Yeah, but now you go for your 'B'! Didn't know I'd hafta work through the whole damn alphabet :) It never ends, does it?? lol
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 :)
