My bounce 350 jumps ago...

I won't have this up long. I've mentioned this incident over the years on dz.com. This was my first and last bounce. 3 years ago. Had to sleep with a pillow between my knees for a year it hurt so bad. Nothing broke but my pride. Triathlon 150 at 1.25.

Take a look.. I'm taking it down in 15 minutes..

Will you wait a little longer than 15min. I'm out of town and am using stupid dial-up. It's going to take me a little longer then the 15.

At least ya looked good doing it!



Why thankya!! That was the beginning of my swoop mania.. Got my ass chewed by hooksnswoop and started my real training that day.

I didn't touch my front risers for over 30 jumps after that..

The jump was not planned.. The only out I left myself was the hanger. What a dumb stinking thing to do that was. I'm glad I wasn't hurt and that I learned EARLY before I was under a canopy that could have smeared my ass all over the dz.. That one could have I just got lucky because the ground was very wet.

When I'm at home, I love my cable. When I'm at work I love my T3. When I'm traveling I love the cable in the rooms. Unfortunately this hotel doesn't have a cable hook-up.

For us less experienced ppl, what did u do wrong? Did you do a front-riser approach or a turn?



I did a 90% to the right and 180% to the left front risers.. Pretty stupid thing to do..

Just imagine how stupid I would have become had I nailed my first non-planned, 90-180 swoop!! I would have ended up in the incident reports after being convinced that I was totally the shit! SPLAT!!

I'm glad I bounced...

Was that Skydive Spaceland??? Man I am just about at 100 and I am too scared to try any sort of high performance landing. I am glad you're ok, that looked like it HURT!! You played it off nice with the stand up landing though:)
