Did my first jump in 1979, static line out of a 182 with a C9 round. Went on to do a bunch of round jumps and owned a PC packed in a Jerry Bird rig, and came in the top 10 in Accuracy at Nationals in 82 in whatever the low jump division was called. Stopped in '83 and returned when squares were mainstream. Picked up my D license along the way and a jumpmaster and showjump rating. When I stopped, I had something like 40 different aircraft types in my logbook, ranging from a Tiger Moth to the Boeing 727 and jumps on three continents.
