I was going through my VHS video archives and found some awesome footage from when Reagan was President (first term) of me doing some fun parachuting stuff.
The first one is our pirate jumps off of the Newport (RI) Bridge, back in 1983 or 84.
And this one is a Santa Claus jump I did about a year later:
I'm turning 50 next month, and while I've known people a LOT older who still jump, I consider it a closed chapter in my life. I've accomplished everything I'm going to, and I have other stuff I enjoy doing more.
Plus, my back is kind of fucked up, and the idea of jumping out of airplanes doesn't hold the same appeal anymore.
