Skydive Lobos, Argentina

Its easy to be cocky on the ground...

but not at 10,000'! second thoughts ???



Just out of the plane



30 seconds of free fall! If you listen closely you can hear me yelling at the top of my lungs!


Something is wrong here... the chute develops a knot and wont open fully. I knew something was wrong after he pulled the parachute and we floated on that for a bit, and all of a sudden we were falling again! He had to ditch it and use the reserve... the only really scary part was falling the second time, because I hadn´t expected it! My guts were definately in my throat!



Coming in for a landing with the backup chute! glad we packed 2... !

Glad to be back on terra firma!

That looks sooo scary! What a rush that must have been! You look so cheerful and calm in the face of possible serious consequences of a parachute malfunction! Glad to see you pushing your limits and having so much fun, love the pictures also,
love you, Melinda
