Yay graduation!

Yesterday I got to jump 3 times which means I've officially graduated from the Advanced Free Fall course. I no longer have to have an instructor jump out of the plane with me. 16 more jumps and I should have my class A license.

Tradition dictates that you supply the after operations beer on the day you graduate. I damn near jinxed myself by bringing a cooler of homebrew down; it was a bit cold and windy, so very few jumpers showed up. They won't send the plane up with less than 10 jumpers in it, so I almost didn't get the jumps in that I needed (in fact, I suspect some folks may have stayed and jumped just to make sure I could graduate yesterday... thanks!)

I've got 4 more 'coaching' jumps paid for right now, so I'll probably use several of those next weekend. Woo-hoo!
