Nick and I have been jumping since 2004 (technically he made his first 4 jumps in 2001, but had to take a few years off due to a shoulder injury). In that time we've jumped at 22 dropzones and only lost two feet. #winning
Alaska, the last frontier! This gigantic chunk of land that's twice the size of Texas and far removed from the lower 48 should be near the top of your travel bucket list. The days are long in the summer, never really getting dark, the terrain is lush, the air is cool, and the people are so friendly!
We've had an adventurous 2016, with trips to exotic places like India, Thailand, Alaska, and Las Vegas (maybe that's not "exotic" but still), and yet, ending up spending the summer in Illinois is something I can't quite wrap my brain around yet. And we've been here for 10 days already.
