Yesterda I did my 13th jump on the 13th. Today I did 14 & 15. Would have had docking done at #14 but the coach couldn't hit the fall rate so he ended up sitflying beneath me from 7,000' on down. Just hope the weather holds for tomorrow!
Did 16, 17 and 18 today! 18 was my first cutaway! Landing was so hard I just pray I didn't rip anything in my knee. People on the ground said if I woud have straightened my legs after I hit the first time I would have done a perfect pike through my lines. I just wish I had more sunlight to get on another load! So I owe a bottle of 151 to our rigger and a case of beer. God I love this sport.
Blew out two cells on the left side of the canopy on opening. The coach I was jumping with said her first cutaway was on her 4000th jump. I am still pumped with adrenaline. I've got a picture of the canopy so as soon as I get home and figure out how to downsize it so I can put it up I will.
