Wow, what a blast, like people say, jumpin around clouds really gives you a feel for how fast you are falling!! Great day, and my sit is slowly improvingSly

JOTP, starts in the morning, my goal is over 30 jumps for the week!!!

Might not want to declare publicly that you busted a cloud... it is kinda prohibited by the FAR's.

Federal Aviation Regulations. The rules of the air in the US per the FAA - Federal Aviation Administration.

No no, I just jumped past the clouds, that way I could always see what was below me, the dz!
I would never break any rules...

Definately don't say " I just fell through a cloud"

The last time I fell through a cloud it was awsome.. of course I was supposed to say Industrial haze. Visible moisture is acceptable. Any way, it's cool huh!

I was Seriously bustin clouds not too long ago. I kept hearing about all this industrial haze and smoke or what ever. As much as I wanted to believe it wasn't a cloud, I just didn't buy it.. It was a cloud and no one could tell me that it wasn't. They were liars. I have encyclopedias at home and I looked it up. Sure enough, those white puffy things that give you a serious rush the closer you get to them, were CLOUDS!.

...or was I dreaming?

Well, your FARs and FAAs can't touch meCool! So I can openly say that busting clouds is real fun unless you forget about altitude and shit your pants pulling way below your 'safe' point. (been there, done that, learned my lesson)
As for good stuff, try going through a cloud with your mouth open...it's not as creamy and fluffy as you'd imagined when you were a kid, but fun neverthelessSly.

Nyaah, nyaah, nyaah...I jump through clouds all the time......
But normally in places where the FAA have no power, sway or influence......ie in the UK.

Although given the choice......I'd have to say you guys have it better.....Cool

We never have a cloud in the sky. Sometimes some of that damn industrial haze blows up here from Mexico, but luckily, those are good to go...

Ah yes forgive me for being presumptuous(amongst other thingsWink) And your clouds probably aren't full of hail, ice, and evrything but a silver liningPirate. Diving into your own wee rainbow halo (corriolis?)is cool though....

And that "solidified smog" really hurts when it hits your un-protected face in freefall, unless you have a beard.

I think you mean "Glory", not "Coriolis". A "Glory" is the name of the atmospheric effect that puts a bright halo around your shadow when it falls on a cloud.

And then there are "sun dogs"...

Wait till you get to fly your tiny little super rocket canopy (when you're experienced enough of course) around the clouds. It's great Cool
