Hello from an old timer Can't Post

I found this site by accident, and I am glad I did because I am enjoying the various threads.

My first jump was at Lakehurst Naval Air Station in 1960. I made 60 jumps into that sand pit that was surrounded by trees. My 31st jump was out of one of those blimps, June 28, 1961. In those days we tried various modifications to the old type parachutes. Some worked well while some -- not so well.

I started 6 threads under the Skydiving History & Trivia section:
