"Want to" verses "Need to" decisions
The idea of not being able to fix a stable line twist under a fully inflated and flying canopy would have been laughable to me. But that was before yesterday. There was a huge temptation to continue to work to fix it. But as a recent thread reminded us, “Know your decision altitude or your hard deck and stick to it”. I very much wanted to stay with it and fix the twists. But I had made little or no progress and I was at 2,000 feet. My mind went back and forth a couple of times, should I stay or should I go. I will admit the temptation to stay and fix it…..just a little longer was there. I went ahead and did what I was trained to do. I stopped doing what I wanted to do. I did what I needed to do. That was one lesson I tried to drill into my kids before they were grown.
