Moving in!

After over a year working out of home based offices (at times we had 3 different desks in 3 different states!), the time has come for Blue Skies Magazine to step it up to a proper brick and mortar OFFICE.
The details will be announced after we formally sign the lease, get the keys and bum the furniture, but our little unit has for many years faithfully served various skydiving ventures.  I’ll give you a little hint – it is located in DeLand and just a stones throw from the dropzone and the many skydiving manufacturers in the area. And our landlord is fearsome!

After we get desks, some chairs, Swingline staplers, coffee pot and a fridge for the beer (basic necessities) we plan on decorating and organizing.  This will involve some tiki lights and definitely a trip to IKEA.  We also have our hearts set on getting one of those cool wall-sticker-decal-thingie for the entryway (cheesy samples here).

We want it to be a quote.
We want it to be inspiring, funny, witty and relate to flight, the sky; that feeling that keeps bringing us back to the dropzone and into the air.
And snazzy.
And not too long, because they charge per word to make it.

PD New Beginning

So this is where we need your help, because we can’t come up with anything that momentous ourselves. Come up with a saying yourself or bum it from someone else, quote your favorite instructor or rigger, find it on the internet or in a book – we don’t care where it comes from, just bring us the perfect quote!  Oh and remember to note who you are quoting. Even if it’s good old Anonymous.
Submit your idea in the comments section, on Facebook or drop us a line via e-mail with your suggestions.

If we pick your idea, you’ll get a pat on the back and quite possibly a totally cool Blue Skies Magazine sticker in the mail… ohh yeah… how’s that for motivation?!  Plus, the next time you visit the Blue Skies Mag OFFICE, you get to point to the wall and say “yeah, that one is all me.  ALL ME.”.


  • “Skydiving is kind of like anal sex. Just because I didn’t like it the first time doesn’t mean I didn’t give it a second try.” – ME

    As it turns out anal sex isn’t for me, but I’m still skydiving!

  • Errrr… yes, uh ME, if we send you a sticker it will be to put it over your potty mouth! But SkyGod says he digs you and that you can decorate up his digs any time you want.
    I’m not sure if that is a compliment or not though ;)

  • Fly away on my zephyr
    I feel it more then ever
    And in this perfect weather
    Well find a place together
    Fly on my wing

  • Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings.

    -from High Flight by John Gillespie Magee Jr.

    nothing about the sky unfortunately but sentiments all skydivers probably share

    • Thanks! We haven’t actually decided yet, but something along the lines of “But they jumped anyway.” Or something. We haven’t finished rearranging all the furniture for the thirteenth time yet :)
