Your Skydiving Goals for 2006

Recommended Posts

1. Don't kill myself or other sky friends
2. Don't break myself or other sky friends
3. Pass my head up and head down load organizer tests
4. Finagle my way in on as many jumps as I can with the 4way VRW teams starting up.
5. Participate in an 8 way freefly jump turning more than two points (last requirement for my C license)

The LO tests are a lofty goal, considering at this time my head down experience equates to a couple of linked HD exits.
Get in - Get off - Get away....repeat as neccessary

1. Don't get hurt.
2. Get A-license, sometime before I have enough jumps to qualify (by jump numbers only) for a B-license.
3. In pursuit of 2, don't break any more instructors.
4. Get other half to the DZ sometime to watch me jump. (Not for lack of trying so far; schedules and weather have conspired against us.)
5. Mom wants to do a tandem; make that happen for her.
6. Get some more tunnel time.
7. Try out some small-way jumps (like maybe 4 tops) as experience allows.
8. Accumulate more gear - if not a whole rig, then everything short of that (altimeter, helmet, keg tapper, etc.)

Further out (probably past 2006)... Get enough jumps to start thinking about doing some wingsuit jumps. Visit my family in Europe and do some jumps there.

PLF does not stand for Please Land on Face.

1. Stay safe
2. Go overseas for some tunnel training and intensive coaching
3. Get my B-licence (need 20 more jumps, & to finish Cat II and do Cat III for this)
4. 100th jump. (Preferably overseas, locals will know why!)
5. Hopefully do some jumps in Switzerland when I am there in May.
6. Start practising for Nationals 2007 in either junior 2-way and/or junior 4-way.
7. Attend at least one skills camp.
Longer-term.. continue aiming to be at an experience level when I can start putting back into the sport.
Skydiving: wasting fossil fuels just for fun.
