FYBOB 2009 Thanks
Just got home so I had to write something before my head explodes, kinda like the lady on our flight home who was barfing! Too bad I missed that, as I was sleeping.
Keeping this short and sweet is always a challenge for me after such an amazing weekend, so here I go… I wasn’t jumping due to my collarbone not being healed yet, but I was in the warmth of not only the sun, but that of the company I was in.
Even when not in the air, although I got to do some cool shit in the Otter, I always continue to learn a ton from the dirt dives, debriefs, and conversations with all of you.
I’d like to thank you all for the special moments that make life truly wonderful for me, and embracing one another like a true family always makes me take a step back and enjoy life that much more.
The crewbies rocked, Chico got pied for his 3,000, Fedak’s memorial dive was beautiful, Paul Bliss showed up which is always a highlight, there were no injuries, only one chop from misrigging, and diamonds in the sky over Lake Wales was good to see again. How about them Canadians? Gina and Daniel, nice job, and it was an absolute pleasure meeting you!
I can’t list all the thank you’s for fear of missing anyone, but I will say that Betty treats us damn good, as always. Sarah kept us well fed, Bryan’s videos were superb, the organizers were great, and Dave Hillebrandt’s docks were “spectacular"! :)
I will put a link out of the thousands of shots I took when I’m done sifting through them, which may take a bit, but they are yours for the asking once I post them.
We will jump together sometime soon; I look forward to it! This year is off to a great start, let’s keep it going! (And no, "Abbie-normal", I didn’t mean to leave out that the camp was “all about you” haha.)
CRW Love and Blue Skies, April P.S. WI sucks right now! We got off the plane in Milwaukee and looked like a couple of Oompa Loompas, since we are nice and tanned!
