My First Dive

One of the most special days of my life. I will forever be grateful and love this dropzone and everyone in it. I recommend it to anyone who wants to jump out of a plane and to those who don't. I missed my AFF opportunity and of course am rescheduling. I refuse to do AFF anywhere else. These people took care of me and gave me the most perfect day and the most perfect two jumps.
