Here is the exit from my first high solo. It was an awesome jump. I hadn't left the plane at 10,000 so I decided to just hover and pay attention heading control. Plus Andy (who I had neverbefore and met on the plane on the way up to altitude on this jump) left right after me and told me on the way up that he was going to do a solo as well but would stay far enough away so that I could enjoy my solo and to look for him off in the distance because I would see him. It was incredible. I was at 8,000 just looking off into the distance with the sun in front of me off to the right about 30 degrees or so and right in front of me about 300-400 feet off maybe more he comes down in a head down track. It was an amazing visual. It really made the skydive special. If someone was with me with a camera it would have been a beautiful picture. He was almost just a shadow because the sun was almost behind him.

I've made a few more jumps as well. I have passed my G1 & G2 as well. They didn't have video as I was jumping with a friend and rigger at my DZ who didn't jump video but hot damn were they awesome!!!! They were both almost flawless. My G2 was especially incredible. I did a rear diving (bomber) exit and we docked right at the bottom of the hill. We were together the entire skydive. It was the skydive where he would go up and I would need to get big and then dock and then he would drop. When he went down I chuckled to myself for a half second because I had never thought I would need to "get small" since I am such a big guy. I was always really good at getting big but for that brief second I was stumped. I didn't go over how to get small because I didn't even think I would ever need to. It was awesome. I got down to him immediatly and docked again. We pulled off 4 solid docs and then broke off at 6,000. I had a beautiful track and really felt it in my calves this time. I wanted to make sure I had a solid perfect track because my friend was on his second go around for his F2 and I wanted to do it for him. He nailed his F2 and I attached a picture of us after this jump. I am the guy on the left and he is the guy on the right.

The other picture is from my F2 (tracking) with Ty. It was awesome feeling like superman. :)

I might not finish this season due to $ and weather but there is always next season and I will know that I am on my way to getting my A! I am no longer concerned with the license. Every time I leave the aircraft it's amazing and I don't need a license to love being in the door of the plane.

CHEERS DROPZONE.COM! SKYDIVING IS AMAZING!!!!!!!

I did it. Took 9 years and a lot of heartache but I did it.

For those that were following this thread.... THANK YOU!

Yesterday kicked so much ass.

I attached a fun picture. If I wasn't so sweaty I probably would have gotten another 5 stamps...
