In the Springs, They Train Parachuters. Hamilton Khaki BASE Jump

hamiltonbasejumpI had to take a sojurn to Colorado Springs yesterday with the boss for a meeting at another branch of our company. On the way there, we passed the Air Force Academy. The sky overhead was dotted with parachuters training to become the best for the defense of our great nation. It was pretty cool seeing them leap from a perfectly good airplane and depolying chutes. I have always wanted to do that. Sky dive. That and base jump. Just once. To live. To feel alive. To impress girls. I had to refocus quickly though on the drive, as our exit was the next one. Meeting went well, fyi.
