Your story reminds me of a Lab Analyst who worked for me 20 years ago.
Former Marine who loved to base jump.
Second time he busted himself up, I had a nice Marine to Marine talk with him. Said I needed him healthy and at work, not laid up 3 months of every year. Next time he base jumped I would do everything I could to get his butt fired!
There is a point where your hobby can unreasonably endanger your career and a choice has to be made.
I'm glad to say my Analyst hung up his chute.
I hear you. I enjoy BASE jumping as a Hobby. Skydiving has become part of my career so unfortunately I can’t exactly hang my chute up just yet.
