Fiesta Pack Job

Fiesta Pack Job

Most skydivers dislike the job of repacking their parachutes for the next jump. Some hire other people to pack for them. I don't mind it at all. Other than when I was a student, there has been only a handful of times when I didn't pack for myself. I also find entertaining ways to pack. I have packed my parachute with one hand tied behind my back, without being able to stand, blindfolded many times, and I have even packed inside of my car. Naturally, it doesn't count unless you jump the pack job and live. In each instance I did. This is how I packed in my Ford Fiesta which was the smallest Ford in the U.S. market at the time.
