Parachuting Pioneers Excitement Growing

August 7th, 2011 by Georgann Hall

Excitement continues to grow for the Pioneers of Parachuting SkyDivers Reunion in Orange, Ms in Sept.  Only recently did I learn that Orange has a section called Jumptown.  That should be interesting!

Had lunch recently with Vern Williams and Bud Kiesow, pioneers from early Calif. days.  Lots of memories and laughs.  Bud still lives in Calif.; Vern lives in Colorado.  We went to SkyVenture Colorado and met up with Kim Emmons Knor, enjoyed watching jumpers practice in the tunnel!  Jim and Kim will see you in Jumptown!

Ace was a Wonder Dog late in her life.  She had been abused by the local kids as well as adults in fights.  She needed someone who would care for her in a tough kind of way. Jim Hall's way.  Ace had been a victim of bullying though we didn't call it that back then.

Remember Ripcord?

I was thrilled to read the feature article in The Parachutist Magazine about the "old days" with Ripcord.  It was really a time of its own and has its place in history! Read the article for a trip back in time.

Ace the Parachuting Canine

Ace the Parachuting Canine

Follow the exploits of parachuting adventurer Jim Hall. That's me.  I've written an action-packed account of what it was like to parachute into Mexico in novel, "Parachuting for Gold in Old Mexico."

Ever hear of a canine paratrooper?  I had one!  Read the first hand accounts of my amazing parachuting dog, Ace.  He was something else.
