I'm hoping to avoid outlandish beer costs at Carolinafest by bringing my handle of Johnny Black. That should do the trick.

I've set aside a grand for the 5 days I'll be there, most of it on jumps since I'll be sleeping in a tent.

My suggestion for carolinafest to save some money/time:
- Buy stuff before you get to the DZ, It is far from anything. It will save you gas money.
- Don't get caught speeding on I-81. 10 Mph=$75
- Also, all around the DZ there are cops waiting throughout the boogie. They know we are there all week. No open containers
- Nipple clamps are overpriced in Carolina. Get them in VA
- Pitch your tent so that the tree gives you shade in the morning. Also bring a tarp.
- [Sarcasm]Deet is your friend[/Sarcasm]
- You can drink with the Rodriguez brothers, just don't try to keep up. Double goes for SkymonkeyOne.
- Its a Doug eat Doug world - Snarf snarf snarf
- The funeral home that is 5 miles to the south also does bail bonds.
- Get up early for the free loads. (Captain obvious)
- Save money on STD testing: hot sauce double bagger

People never seem to remember this...

DEET and nylon do not like each other. Nylon (ie canopies) will degrade from DEET exposure.

Good catch. I make fixy fixy
This is not the bonfire. Some people read DZ.com as an actual source of reliable information.

I am kinda scared to see what happens when I go back to jumping after recovery from this shoulder. It's gonna be epic.
