How did you get interested in skydiving?
My best friend, Slider, (who weighed 310 lbs.) wanted to go skydiving. He said the weight limit was 230 lbs. for a tandem but if he made the weight would I jump with him. After looking him up and down (and chuckling to myself) I said "Sure", after all, it ain't gonna happen right? WRONG!

Which jump stands out the most?
The first and AFF 4. The first because it was, and the level 4 because of a tension knot in the left brake which kept me from being able to steer or flare. Exciting few seconds until I determined it was fixable then rode in on half brakes afraid it would go back up through the grommet and I wouldn't be able to flare. The instructor (who could see me coming in on final with half brakes) was telling me on the radio "Release the brakes, release the brakes, arms up" and I was screaming at the radio "F**k you, f**k you. You don't know what I just went through". Needless to say I was just a little bit excited at that moment.
