A couple of Mottley Bookers and friends will be making our first skydive on Sunday, October 12 at noon in Tecumseh, MI. This was prompted by our October book Jumping Fire (memoirs of a Smoke Jumper) about fire fighters that parachute into the middle of wildfires. We will not be jumping into a fire but into a field or drop zone as they call it. We will also be jumping tandem, meaning that we will be lashed to an instructor to guide us all the way down (slowly we hope), starting about 2 miles up.
If you are interested in jumping, contact Skydive Tecumseh at 1-800-skydive or 517-423-7720 or www.skydivetecumseh.com to arrange your dive. We would love to see you there - the more the merrier - actually the more appropriate saying is COURAGE IN NUMBERS!
