T3-no stumble/no altimeter problems

Recommended Posts

As crappy as I did T2 is as great as I did T3 today. I rocked it. We were stable so quickly and I looked at the altimeter and it registered...coa was remembered and timely...had a wee bit of difficulty locating the rip cord but searched it out successfully with no anxiety...easily located a heading and was able to get back to it. Someone gave me the advice of visualizing this jump, which I did for days and I believe that made all the difference (and wearing my glasses under the goggles). I did find it hard to actually pull the rip cord once I located it (after feeling up and down the darned instructor's leg and who knows what else).

I had also took someone else's idea of sectioning off the altimeter in case it wasn't registering again. Fortunately I didn't need that backup plan. So this week is ground training and first solo--a whole new set of nerves popping up.

Can't thank you guys enough for all the advice.
