Today was definitely a beer day, first time I have jumped with clouds below and around me. Can you say cloud Bustin! 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 improving
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.
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!.
Well, your FARs and FAAs can't touch me! 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 nevertheless.
"Heh. I didn't say I'd never done it, now did I??"
Ah yes forgive me for being presumptuous(amongst other things) And your clouds probably aren't full of hail, ice, and evrything but a silver lining. Diving into your own wee rainbow halo (corriolis?)is cool though....
