I thought I would try something new and jumping out of a perfectly good airplane seemed to fit the bill. The tandem jump was done at Skydive Hawaii The staff was excellent and the view was fantastic.

My tandem instructor was JC Colclasure, who has more than 14,500 jumps. For a full decade of pro-level competition he ranked above average in all canopy piloting disciplines, earning a variety of championships, and he set a speed and distance world record in addition to manning the camera for other record-setting flights. I have to admit I was having second thoughts when I was at the door. It was his encouragement and enthusiasm that got me out the door on my first jump. Upon my returning home I did another tandem jump and have done two AFF solo jumps
