So, there has been a whole raft of shite news and accidents around the skydiving community recently (more than we like to see!!)...so here is a GOOD News Tale (or one that ended up good news anyway!!)..
We just had an email from Ellie Southworth, who said this...
Here is the second Deepseed Dive of the week for you all to sink your teeth into basically a 4 point skydive, 2 blocks, 2 randoms......give it a go, see how you roll...and then share the results, or your No Shit, there I was stories about your attempts with us on here or on Facebook .Have a great Week(end)!!
Some of you will not understand the concept of having to Fight to Fun Jump...those of you lucky enough to jump in a country where there is still a harmonious balance between Tandem Skydiving, and sport skydiving, will think that this is just exaggeration, that surely this can't happen anywhere.
So, the third leg of the Deepseed Road trip was a visit to Skydive Lake Elsinore. Geezer was there back in 2001, when smudge from the British Army made a bum print in the Concrete (still in the video below)...John and karl have done an absolutely amazing job with the place in the intervening decade, and it now boasts absolute Top Notch Facilities, with a great atmposphere.and the all new Grassed out picnic Area is just Pimp!!
So There Geezer was, packing up his stuff on day two of his visit to Skydive Sandiego, and trying to suss out another night out with Jordo and the packers, when up comes Johnny, The Canuck, who says..."I'm heading to Arizona, wanna ride?"....
That's right folks....Geezer has shaken off the shackles that have had him tied to his desk 24/7 and is heading off for some Fun in the Sun at the PIA Symposium in Reno. After that Party Fest is out of the way, he is Getting in a Car, loading up with demo gear, Rig, Beer Tokens and heaps of other goodies, and charging off around California. 16 days, 13 dropzones (hopefully) and then back to New Zealand for Tea and Medals!!. ON the Tour Geezer hopes to be visiting the following dropzones in roughly this order.
