Well, DUH! Just make a post, and put it all here (rolling my eyes) There will be more as I go along, and hopefully, you'll see improvement.

On this jump, I heard something "pop" as I went out the door. I thought either something broke on my rig, or the strap on my helmet broke. The distraction was enough to send me tumbling. I corrected, though, which is the main thing. Turns out, it was just a riser cover that popped open. No big deal. The lesson to be learned is that no matter what happens, going unstable WON'T fix it, lol!

This is just a tiny clip that one of the instructors caught of me under canopy. Flying around under your own parachute is amazing-it's my favorite part!

It must be quite the experience. What fun to have found something you enjoy so much. You must not be afraid of heights huh?

I could not do that! It looks like you get quite a yank when the parachute opens...? You're obviously having a grand time; I'll keep my feet firmly on the ground :-)
