Finishing off the trip and reflecting on carbon offsetting

We squeezed in three jumps this morning: one tracking, one fun and a four way formation.

The Porter’s door is small for four big lads:


So, despite practising the exit, we broke the formation while upside down and reformed before crossing over and under one another a couple of times. Great fun and a good finish to the trip with a fast, well-timed landing.

I’m acutely aware that skydiving isn’t environmentally friendly. Obviously, not jumping is off the table: there are already too few opportunities for fun, adventure and personal responsibility in a risky environment.

While my car, my bikes and – when I remember! – my commercial flights are offset, I can’t yet offset my jumps. Clear Offset have offered to cover skydiving: they just need the facts, which I am trying to collate with UK dropzones…
