Jump 147 2 Way

This post is being typed up from notes taken from logbook

2 Way with Alicja. Good linked exit, but when we released we were chasing each other for levels, before linking back up at 6,000′. Broke off and tracked at 5,000′, and deployed main canopy at 3,500′. Upon deployment i finished my 5 second safety count and the canopy was still opening. I grabbed the risers and started to pump them just as my audible started screaming at me as i was about to hit my hard deck of 2,000′ (its set to scream at 2,200′) and the canopy started to fully inflate. Upon looking at the pro track data afterwards the canopy didnt register as fully inflated untill 1,800′

That made my arse twitch

A last minute 2 way jump, completley unplanned and just for lols . Good linked exit, with turns, dives and flips, whilst staying fairly level with each other. Broke off and tracked at 5,000′ and deployed main canopy at 3,500′

Jump 145 Solo

This was a strange jump, i was the 5th person to exit the plane, but, when the red light went on and the door opened, as soon as the jump master looked out and down, he screamed ‘GREEN LIGHT!! GREEN LIGHT!!’ followed by ‘GO! GO! GO!’ to the first jumper

I did a backwards exit from 12,500′ Stable on back and turning left and right, before flipping back over and small track. Deployed main canopy at ~3,500′ and was a LONG way from the dropzone, I turned towards the landing area, hoping that id make it back, and every now and then looking back over my shoulder at other canopies further away than me, and thinking they have no chance at all of making it back. I was getting closer and closer to the landing area, but knew that i wasnt going to make it, so found a flat spot around 200 yards outside of the perimeter and turned into the wind for a safe landing.

Rolling exit onto back. Stable on back for over 10 seconds. Deployed main canopy at ~ 3,500′ Aborted target due to number of canopies, landed around 30M short on opposite side of runway
