  1. Good for you!! Congratulations on a beautiful baby boy. I'm actually in the process of adopting a rescue dog myself. His name is Chance. I get him next week.
  2. Thanks SO much for posting that. What a great tribute. Bob is amazing.
  3. Oh my God, Bob, I just now heard. I cannot find any words. You are in my heart and prayers.
  4. I grew up in Spokane and was home on May 18th, 1980. The sky turned completely black and we got 14" of ash. Still have a jar of it laying around somewhere. Quite an experience....
  5. This is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. I really needed that (a good laugh), too. I can't stop smiling. And the fact that he TOLD people about it is even funnier.

    JRock, Amy and I jumped one at SDC a few years ago. It was an early version. It fell fairly straight down and had good speed (we were on our heads). Gitrdone! =)
  7. I can't believe it's been a year since I got that call from you, Chris. I'm remembering Tommy today and thinking of you. All my love and good vibes, XOXOXO Jen
  8. Does anyone have Scott Butler's e-mail address? (He's a deaf skydiver from AZ). He's been trying to contact me to interpret for him, but I've been unable to locate him. Any help is greatly appreciated. Jen
  9. I did not know Paul (my boyfriend did). But my heart is breaking for Paul's family, friends, and the people unfortunate enough to have been there that night. Although I never met him, one thing is obvious. He loved his daughter very much. That is something that will never die. Alexa, may your father's unimaginable love for you comfort you now and in years to come. My deepest sympathies to all of you. Sincerely, Jen
  10. Of course I remember you! When will you be out to Eloy next?
  11. Well, I'm not deaf. But I am a sign language interpreter. I jump at Skydive AZ. There are a few deaf skydivers in CA, and one who lives here in AZ.
  12. Having some fear is a good thing. It can motivate you to pay attention to safety details and be cautious. However, for some people, it can also hinder your ability to react promptly and accurately. At no time should you ever "panic" during a skydive. If you are the type who tends to panic under stressful situations, you should seriously consider whether or not you can overcome that reaction. I'm not trying to dissuade you from taking up skydiving. But there is no room for panic in this sport. Jen -Nothing worthwhile is easy-
  13. Actually, what has always worked best for me is to chew on it for awhile. Use your back teeth to gnaw on the knot. The saliva helps to moisten the material making it easier to pry the knot loose. And your teeth are not sharp enough to damage it Hope this helps and doesn't gross you out. Jen
