Looking back on my posts this summer I noticed that I failed to post about one of the best days of the summer.  While in Grand Junction I had a mandatory day off (they make us take a day off every 21 days).  Wally, another jumper happened to have the day off as well.  We got a hold of ex Boise smokejumper Ryan Jordan who lives in GJ now and we all three went to hang out on the Colorado river in Ryan’s jet boat.  We grabbed a case of Tecate and some fishing rods and hit the water.  Despite knowing that I’d be hanging out all day on the water in 100 degree weather, I neglected to apply sunscreen so I ended up with a brutal sunburn but aside from that it was a great day off.
