As speculated nothing compares to the rush of skydiving!!  ...and furthermore everything is far more dangerous!  Black eyes and broken noses in boxing and now a freaking broken wrist skiing out west.  I should have stuck with skydiving!!  Gear is back on it's way to me though :-)

It looks like the weather is going to be cold Saturday! Is someone bringing a heater? and beer? We'll just have to get drunk after the safety briefing if we can't jump.

sheesh this is getting terrible.  I thought I was gonna be OK since we went to Eloy in January but I'm having a hard time focusing.  I think I'm starting to get a twitch.  I was over at Franz's the other nite and had to go drive thru the parking lot of the DZ, just because...


Now today we got a ton of snow.  I just want to go to bed until April.  So close but so far away...  :roll:

We could get anywhere from 5-10 inches

Would Safety Day get pushed back if its crazy Saturday morning? The 1.5 hour drive in the snow doesn't sound fun....

noooooo! I need to jump!

this is getting crazy. last night I had a dream about how we had perfect the weather was on safety day. the last paper I wrote was about skydiving, then today I was in class and when I looked at the window all I could think of was how to do the coolest diving exit out of it. and earlier this week I found myself in my room putting my helmet on just to think about jumping.

if I don't get to jump on safety day, I'm probably going to crap my pants. seriously.  And I hate shopping for new pants.  Its like one of the biggest wastes of time every.

You people in Michigan or closer to the Michigan border got lucky, I had 5 inches of snow in my driveway by 2:00 AM last night. No way was I making the hike out of this crappy county to try and get to clear roads.
