Hi. I did my first solo jump last weekend after completing three tandem jumps. The first solo jump was almost as awesome as my first ever jump but, then, nothing will ever compare to that first jump. My DZ is Skydive Southwest Florida, by the way. I definitely made some inexperienced jumper mistakes such as not picking up on the fact right away that the wind direction had changed by the time my parachute had deployed. Therefore, I didn't adjust my destination route in time so I ended up having to locate an alternate landing which turned out to be a cow pasture across the road from the DZ. Fortunately I cleared the powerlines by about 25 feet and had a good landing. I don't think the cows appreciated me being there very much but at least I avoided the powerlines and the fence. I really had a blast up there and I learned a little bit about myself. I never lost my cool up there and I gained a ton of confidence even with the mistakes. The owners and other skydivers I have met have all been so awesome. Skydivers are really cool people to be around.
