Now, Sir, that's gonna leave a mark. Aren't you one of the DZO's that ran the Gardner Lake jumps? Gear up, Load UH1, jump, splash, swim to zodiac, drop chutes run zodiac chase, repeat as needed until all chutes in the rigger shed are wet, hang chutes, laugh that the riggers actually would have some work to do for the next week......


No love, no love at all!!!!

nope...never ran Gardner Lake...i did run some RT jumps on the short leg of Turner...gear up, load UH1, put guys in the trees, get them down, load them up again, repeat as necessary until chutes were pretty badly mangled, then go to the rigger shed, shake the shrubbery out and hand them off to the riggers...did that three or four times...

So that was you.
Thanks, Sir.
Really loved the "lets get bashed up by trees, and poke an eye out" jumps. Loads of fun, a zillion laughs. Really loved the prep for a great PLF while protecting your assets and making sure your elbows were tight to your sides with your chin tucked up tight to your chest..... and then realizing, after you finally get the chute out of the friggin trees that you have to run the length of Turner to make your next jump - just to do it all again.

Damn, I miss that shit!

I bet you don't miss the mosquitos there during those evening and night jumps. They drank more than some of the guys did at the Cinema Lounge in Leominster.

A Co, 2nd Batallion Team 213 from 82-84. The golf course was wonderful and it only cost $3 with equipment included for eighteen holes. (for my rank it was that cheap). Motorcycle accident leaving post drunk, and a lot of drinking at the Trojan club, A good time was had by all.
