We had bbq with the Skydive Houston folks, and crashed upstairs in their bunkhouse (bunkbeds! woohoo!). Up early on Sunday morning and while the boys got ready to skydive (I'm still sick and didn't skydive this time), I met Rob in Cypress for breakfast. It was SO good to see him, I miss that boy! Back at the ranch the boys had already done their thing, and it was our turn to go up in the helicopter! I got to sit copilot AND take photos of Alex as he jumped (twice). It was super cold up there (temp drops 2 degrees for every 1,000 feet), especially with the doors off (freaky!!) and we had the nifty headseats so we could talk to each other. I got some great shots of Alex jumping, and he got some of me too (on his way out of the helicopter, hehe) . I'll post the video as soon as he gets it together.
There sure were a lot of parenthetical things going on in the previous paragraph. :) Anyway...
Left town at 3 yesterday and took Jake back to Austin, then it was back to Abilene for me. I made it to the house just before 9, so I made damn good time! And no, I don't speed (too much), especially on 183. The cops freakin live on that road.
Stay tuned for more photos and videos!
