Mine's this month, too, but I don't know when either.

There is nothing more dangerous than breaking a basic safety rule and getting away with it. It removes fear of the consequences and builds false confidence. (tbrown)

It is my 34th Sky Birthday today, June 13. Made my first jump in 1981 on a T10. Details and picture here: http://www.skydivestlouisarea.com/peekfjc.htm

I think I'm going to celebrate by making a few jumps today. The midwest weather seems to have given us a little break, at least this morning.



And to celebrate:

Cool pic of the flag jump. I've never done one of those.

The rainbow canopy reminded me of an old Unit main canopy we had in the rainbow color pattern. And you've been jumping long enough to remember when rainbow was one of the most popular color schemes in the sport.

One of my kids was looking at an old jump picture of me under my rainbow colored canopy and said "Hey Dad, what's with the rainbow? Something you're not telling us?"

I guess the rainbow means something different to the younger generation. :D

Yes, some rainbow color schemes certainly do mean something different now! However, unless there is violet in the rainbow color scheme, it is not a true LGBT rainbow.

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT

My Manta has what I call the Flight Concepts "white rainbow" pattern. Picture attached.
