Blocked sinuses suck

Today and yesterday were pretty good jumping, until my second jump today. First jump was a hop 'n pop (meaning I got out at ~4000 feet); second jump was all the way up. Unbeknownst to me, one of my sinuses was blocked; the first half of the jump was fine but pain started at about 6000 feet and was pretty awefull by 5000 (about 5 seconds). It's still uncomfortable now. Ugh.

On the bright side I'm now certified for my B license. Only missed one question on the exam (At what altitude must the pilot be on oxygen immediately upon reaching that altitude?). While reviewing my logbook for landing accuracy and other license requirements I realized I'd gone from jump 89 to 87. So I got to renumber 80 log entries. Wee.

One last tidbit... it took 7 months to make my first 100 jumps. I've made the next 67 in 2 months.
