Fishing and fighting? They're similar for Miller

It’s been a good summer for Jim Miller. First, the fighting pride of Sparta, New Jersey snapped a two-fight losing streak with an impressive first-round TKO of Japanese star Takanori Gomi at UFC 200 in July.

Instagram dispatch from the BFFs of Skydive DeLand

Let’s take a moment to appreciate our best friends. Cue @emilycharabowski in this selfie from a couple of summers ago.
Emily is the mother of a 2month old. Her first. And an amazingly strong woman. She has worked alongside me for two weeks now @skydivedeland for #flight1 #canopycoaching in 100 degree heat in this hot #floridasummer weather and lost 10lb of her baby weight. She makes me feel weak everyday. Good on ya mum! #tiptopstheoneLet’s take a moment to appreciate our best friends. Cue @emilycharabowski in this selfie from a couple of summers ago.

Photo Interview: Mikhail Markine | Excerpt

“It is hard to point out one specific thing. I feel like in the grand scheme of things I do things because I want to grow and I want to learn. So any one thing is sort of a steppingstone on that path. So it is hard to point out one particular thing. I am proud that I can do anything that I choose to do. The idea that I have been able to keep the ball rolling through all sorts of weird situations and circumstances is important to me. I started tinkering with computers when I was 12, and went full time with Google when I was 22 years old. I started jumping in 2006, and almost 10 years later I am on Airspeed.””It is hard to point out one specific thing.

The Spirit of Lower Light

Arriving at Lower Light is a little like walking into the past. This DZ has been around for more than 50 years and has trained some of the best skydivers and DZ operators in the history of Aussie skydiving. It’s a Cessna operation and has that club feel where the community is tight and lots of attention is given if you’re a student. You can literally feel the history of the sport oozing from the walls. The owner, Allan Gray, has forgotten more about skydiving than I’ve learned as he is a highly decorated skydiver both in the civilian and military parachuting worlds.
