What did YOU do at work today that you found fun?

so i did my first jump at work in over three years today. between deployments and teaching taskings, i don't get out anymore.

the plane is a SkyVan that my battalion leases for jumps when hercs aren't available, and the drills are completely different, if there are really any drills.

i would also like to add that there is no fucking way that this thing is pitbulled in any way, given the fact that i am the author.

Youd think by now they would give you guys chutes you have some control of.

you hit the ground like a sack of potatoes . I know it is mostly the chute design.

PITBU...

Just kidding! I have always wanted to do a HALO jump out of a C17. Open the doors, and the just run!

if i ever used the chute for real, i want this one. get me to the ground as fast as possible so i don't get hit. i was 1250 AGL on this jump, and i descended in 50 seconds, so yes, hitting the ground at 17 mph does hurt, but we had over a foot of snow today, so it was more pillow like. the purple on the lens is paint from the bench mr joe.
