That's me sitting on the wing of my airplane at Southern Parachute Center at Hammond, Louisiana, in the mid-1960s. I got my start as a jump instructor and jump pilot there, and my experiences at SPC would set the tone for much of the rest of my life as a skydiver and pilot. The stories in this book are some of my best, and I know you will enjoy reading about what skydiving was like in those days.
Red Beans & Ripcords is the first book I self-published and is, by far, one of my most popular books-to-date. You can read more about it on Amazon here.
