Cold-weather Warriors!

Congratulations to Megan Dunning and her boyfriend for braving the 16 degree weather and doing their first Tandem jumps today. It was chilly, but we still had a good time.

Gearing up for the cold.

The walk to the plane. The camera is too far away to capture the dread on our faces.

We landed…

Then sprinted inside.

I would have taken pictures of the tandems landing, but I was in the pilot’s lounge trying not to cry from the cold. (The picture’s from last year, but I made the same face today…)

Finally, thanks to everyone who has came out and jumped with the Falling Illini this year. We’re done for this semester, but trips will start again as soon as classes start again in January. We hope to see even more jumpers out next year. See you in ‘09!

Blue Skies,

Mike Murphy
