Here is another short clip with a couple fun jumps from last Friday. A 2 way and a busted 5 way.

Jacksonville takes the top spot in this short article by +The Huffington Post. There are a lot of cool things happening in and around Jacksonville the past couple years.

Great TED Talk
In James Howard Kunstler's view, public spaces should be inspired centers of civic life and the physical manifestation of the common good. Instead, he argues, what we have in America is a nation of places not worth caring about.

I hope when I am 82 I’m in the same mindset as she is both physically and mentally. Amazing little story from the oldest female skydiver, Dylis, who is 82 years old.
 
“You’re a bird for 50 seconds… it is unbelievably wonderful. I won’t stop till I know it’s not safe. But for now I’m safe, I can do it, and I will do it for as long as I can.”

Great read… “I have become part of a family made up of people from all walks of life. We are joined by our desire to experience the space between sky and ground, using the very force that pulls us down to help us fly. My hope is that our resilience, and the triumphs of our explorations, will inspire all who dream of freedom in any form to take the first step.”

Made my 100th skydive 2 weeks ago at the Skydive Palatka Halloween Boogie. We had planned a 5 way with a round, spider, and accordion. Exit was wonky with Jim flipping and going low, then I funneled over Phillip, and then everyone came and docked on me. By the time we got the round and moved to the spider it was break off. I tracked off while everyone stayed an extra second to get the 2nd point. Was still a fun jump regardless the outcome.

Name and shame. I was commuting home on I-95 North in the St. Johns area just South of Jacksonville by Race Track Rd after work on Thursday 5-14-15. This asshole trucker with a vehicle trailer cuts me off by merging into the middle lane I was driving in. No blinker, no regard for what he was doing, nothing - I had to slam on the brakes and swerve off to my left to avoid a collision. Keep in mind what you’re seeing is a dash cam with a wide angle lens. When in real life the distances you’re seeing are much closer than the camera is portraying.

The best bachelor party ever, and the true meaning of friends and family. I have no doubt this would align with my group of friends as well.

Wonderful little eatery tucked back in a shopping plaza. This place is a spin off of the regular Caps On The Water in Saint Augustine. The reason this place exists is because Caps On The Water needed another place to house food and to expand it's kitchen, but something to do with the law or space would not allow them to expand the kitchen at Caps On The Water. So they bought this place for that specific reason to expand the kitchen and prep food for Caps On The Water restaurant. Well they had a bunch of space in the front of this place and turned it into a small eatery with sandwiches, soups, salads. It's mainly a lunch spot as it is just open till 2:30pm every day. They do serve breakfast, but I've only gone here for lunch. I've been here multiple times and it's one of my favorites spots for lunch around the World of Golf area (about 10 min drive south of the area). I've tried nearly every sandwich on the menu and my favorite is between the cuban and the garlic gyro. I typically get the pasta salad as my side, but I've also had the southern potato salad and it's pretty good as well. All sandwiches come with a side of your choice pasta salad, southern potato salad, three bean salad, or coleslaw. You can choose between pita pocket, ciabatta, health nutt bread, or farm white for your sandwich bread.

This could go as a bar/small club. Love the decor in this place, and the big screen plays some awesome remix videos to the live DJ music. They also have two TVs over the bar that plays movies on repeat. Thursdays are good nights to go if you want to have fun and people watch. Expect to show up around 10:30-11 for when it starts to get going. So many different walks of life come here. Mainly a hipster venue (due to the area it's in), but you'll get anyone and everyone in this place. Great music, and drinks are slightly over priced in my opinion. They have a small separate intimate bar in the back to the left that serves some good beer. They have an outside smoking area for all of you smokers which is great for us non-smokers inside. Guys this is a great place to get some girls as well. I would certainly and plan to take any of my out of town friends here to have fun. I've had so many good nights here, and many more to come in the future!

I've had the hot dog platter, and blondi's breakfast burger. Both we alright. I enjoyed the burger more even though it was cooked medium-well instead of medium like I requested. Fries tasted like they were frozen. The potato salad was alright, but I've had better. Hot dog platter was just ok as well. Two hot dogs topped with two toppings of your choice. Filling but won't put you in a food coma. The interior has a retro vibe and food is prepared to order right in front of you with an open kitchen. They have breakfast, lunch, and dinner available all day. Service was pretty good. I would recommend it. By the way google's directions will take you further down past the restaurant. They are actually located right behind the dairy queen and gas station across from the comfort inn.

Have always been a fan of Pita Pit. Great spot for a quick and cheap lunch. Good service as well.

Whiskey is not cheap, but the food is great. Service was really good. The mozzarella sticks were really good. I will definitely be back for more. Jacksonville needs more whiskey related bars.
