Change of plans………..

Man-o-man….. talk about one extreme to another.
Hurricane Maria roared through our future home and just absolutely devastated it. While our hearts go out to the people of USVI it also means the plans we have been making for the last year or so got blown away with Maria.
A lot of scrambling in the last 2 days has now got us landing in the Cayman Islands. Don’t have a lot of details yet – as it takes time to get confirmations for everything.
Not sure what we’re gonna do when we get there. Going to have to look into getting visa’s now – and Lord knows what else. This is now turning into truly an adventure, but we are amped and looking forward to it.
Keep checking in here for details – it’s gonna be a wild ride –

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)

  1. Bill!

    Miss jumping with you!

    I’ll never forget that cut-away at Carmi, I was right above you, seen the whole thing. Great learning experience for me, staple in my skydiving career!

    I’m glad it’s all working out for you.

    I’ll remember you both in my prayers.

    Have fun in the Cayman Islands,


    1. Thankx John,
      I remember looking up and checking out my canopy on that jump and seeing you above me and thinking…” I hope you’re paying attention” ~ : )
      Best of luck to you in your jumping career.
      Take care~
