For Jon Rehder’s 40th birthday, he and his father Jim went skydiving on August 4 at Star, Idaho. Jim says “I wasn't nervous at all for some reason.  Really intense in the free fall; the air pressure sure does creative things with a person's face.  we landed on our butts and it didn't hurt at all.” From top down are Jon, Jim and the pair before getting in the plane.
