I am back from my vacation with massive pain on a broken tail bone (Hard landing from my first-ever skydive). This item is the last of the pre-postings for your enjoyment.

Congrats on your skydive! Hate to hear about the landing, but don't let it discourage you; it's much better after you're not strapped to somebody.. "If riding in an airplane is flying, then riding in a boat is swimming. If you want to experience the element, get out of the vehicle."

Sorry to hear about your injury. Get well soon.
