Skydiving doesn’t always go perfectly. A few weeks ago I had to ditch (cutaway) my main for the first time in my short career (1300ish jumps). I no longer have the original video in a convenient form, but some mates from work captured my view when it was on a monitor. In short, line twists on a small canopy (this one was 90 ft2) can cause the wing to dive and accelerate the spin, making clearing the twists even harder. Rather than fight it, I went to the reserve with plenty of altitude to spare. I probably could have fought it a bit longer, but I love living :)

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

Proof I'm under surveillance. Although my language is nowhere near this flowery.

Happy Tuesday Pham.
