Another Satisfied Customer

Hey guys,

skydive louisiana, skydive experience, I just want to say that I had a great time there Saturday. My son, Dustin Martin and I got to do our first skydive that day. William Caldwell is an awesome tandem instructor. When you get to do something with someone who loves what they do as much as Will does, it makes it that much more fun for the new person. He did a great job of preparing us for the jump and his excitement helps take the nervousness away and allowed us to just have fun. Chris Parker did a great job of capturing our experience on video and pictures. We couldn’t wait to get together with our family and friends and show them what we had done. It’s amazing how many of them just think we are CRAZY.

Thanks for such an AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!!!!!! WOOOOO HOOOOOO!!!!!!!   

I hope to do it again, after I lose a little weight first.

Will, here is that quote I was trying to find for you:

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intentions of arriving in a handsome and well preserved body, rather, the object should be to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: WOW! What a ride.” Life isn’t just how to survive the storm, but to dance in the rain.

Thanks again for a great day.
