I miss it… until I start thinking about sitting in a chalk in full gear for hours on end, fighting off a massive hangover, not being allowed to use the latrine, the leg straps (you loosened for comfort) try turning you into a Ken doll during the opening shock, and then the monotonous ‘chute shakeout details at the riggers’ shed. Other than that though… super awesome and I miss it. Airborne.
