All good things (as they say) must come to an end. So it is with this adventure. I took 600 images over a 4 hour period. From that I culled it down to 441 so there are a lot more images I could show you but it is time to move on.
There are so many impressions and emotions I could leave you with. I was a bystander or an observer to this event. I didn’t participate or jump but I felt very much a part of it and connected with my friends.
Above Kevin and Ann take a picture to send to their kids. Kevin and Ann are both adventurers. They love the outdoors and are active in many types of sporting and nature activities.
Brian’s wife Marla was there for support and took some video of Brian’s jump. I haven’t had a chance to sit down with any of the group and ask them about their experiences. That would have helped tell the story. It’s been a very busy week so not much time for anything other than keep appointments.
One of the things I’ve learned in my career is that everyone has some important things to say. Sometime soon I want to sit down with them and have them recount their experience.
The was the most popular way to watch the sky divers. If you stood up right and tried to watch them it wasn’t long until you felt the pain in your neck. I think I reported earlier that there were about three groups ahead of our group so the jumpers had plenty of time to sit and think about their pending adventure.
There were also other people there to show their support. Bonnie came along with the group and of course my Queen was there to lend support. Bonnie had jumped a few years back and felt like she had been there done that. I think it was really cool that she came with her buddies to watch their experience.
So it was a remarkable experience and an enjoyable day. I’m glad I got to spend the time with my friends and enjoy their experience with them. They are all quality people and the whole experience was just awesome.
I’ll leave you with this image. There is another story about this mascot that I do not have the time nor the inclination to pursue. Suffice it to say that it is a worthy story to tell. Perhaps another time.
Thank you for stopping by. Back to barns and other things that interest me now. Enjoy your Friday and be very careful this holiday weekend.
