The date was September
30th, Patrick Holloway and June went out to
Waler Texas to go for their first skydive. After
attending an extensive 6 hour coarse on all
the basics of skydiving, June and Pat were ready
to take the plunge. The first of anyone to date
associated with HooliganExtremes.com, this was
a monumental jump that occurred nearly one year
before this extreme sports web site was formed.
Ready, willing and able, Pat and June psyched
themselves up to do the unthinkable, jump out
of a properly functioning airplane. Nerves of
steel and balls of a SKYDIVER, Pat was the first
of the duo scheduled to jump from the Cessna
on site at Skydive Houston, in Waler, Texas.
As the two looked on at a young couple who were
both taking a tandem jump, excitement rushed
through their blood as the chutes opened and
the couple came down an easy decent to a soft
landing with their instructors strapped to their
backs. The excitement was overwhelming for both
Pat and June. As they waited impatiently, Pat
and June couldn't help but notice that the Cessna
plane that delivered the previous skydivers
to the air had not returned. As time went on,
no plane landed at the airstrip. Shortly there
after, the pilot was spotted walking out of
the nearby woods, without the plane. Evidently
the planes engine died when the pilot pulled
out on the throttle causing him to make an emergency
landing. To most this would have been a sign
to not go through with the jump, but June and
Pat returned 2 days later and made history in
the ranks of what was to be HooliganExtremes.com.
Most people thing we were stupid, dumb, and
or crazy for jumping after the airplane mishap,
we consider it hooliganism !!!!!
