There were clusters of very experienced jumpers in lots of places "almost back in the day".

Raeford comes to mind, I was suprised to learn about the long history of jumping and talent in the seattle area once I mover there.

We knew people like Jim Captain and Matt Farmer that moved from Desto Ks to the Gulch to follow their dream.

FWIW I don't like to use the term skygod but thats just me.

Saw my first "skygod" around 1975 ShockedCrazyQuit the sport for 10 yr's after that.

When I came back in 1985 those people were still around. I renamed them "Skysnobs" and kept my distance.Cool

There's only one person that I've met and would call a skygod That Mr Jay Stokes. No attitude a real jumpers jumper.
