10 YR Weekend!! (RESERVE) Can't Post

Well Last week I posted that this past weekend was my 10YR Anniversary in the Sport. Sorry to say I only made two jumps because of some circumstances beyond my control. I made One Jump at Sebastian and One at Skydive Palm Beach.

I was testing a new canopy. A Samurai 95. The Jump at Sebastian was O.K. It would have been nice if the manifest would have held sunset for me but Oh well therefore only one jump. A friend and I tried to do a Hybrid.

Yesterday at Skydive Palm Beach we did the same dive. The dive went much better. I deployed and there were a few line twists. Needless to say the Samurai Took a hard dive to the left. I got the line twists out but the canopy would not stop diving. I played with it for a few more seconds then said " The Hell With This!!!" Chopped and had a full reserve by 2,200'. Yes I was pulling high to play with the canopy a little. It was fun but stopped me from being able to make more jumps.

I followed my Free-Bag. I even had an opportunity to catch it but let it go. It landed in a NASTY Ditch filled with ALGAE. I was able to get it easily though. The Main landed on the Taxi-Way. What luck. All is good. I Should be at the Hill again this weekend sometime. Not sure though because I might have to do some NSA (Non-Skydiving Activities).

Alrighty enough blab. Ya'll take it easy. Laters!!!

KRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cool

By the way, we are all ordering matching Woomera's. That way we can look a little more, you know,professional.The only trouble is that they all come embroidered with the FSU logo on the pop top.We can get them dirt cheap though, I thought you might be interested!

Awe C'mon Girl it i not like that at all. I am just easily persuaded to do interesting things. Wink

If I do not make it out this weekend I will defintely be out for Labor-Day. Not very long though b/c I have a wedding to attend.

Take care.
