I noticed prices are for double occupancy rooms only. If we are travelling solo but don't want to pop the extra $400, will you pair us up with another skydiver?

Hmmm.... Can we select a roommate or is that an extra charge? I'm going to need a list of all women attending. Cool




But really I'm thinking about attending the Puerto Rico freefall festival and this one.



But really really, where's that list?

Ah, well I'm always up for sharing!


I have some requirement issues to work out and a small window to do so. If I go to both I'll have 3-10 days before the PR event and another 10 days between that and this event to get a dozen jumps, some water training, and pass a test. Cool The water part will probably be the only hang up scheduling wise. Unsure

Yep. I bought my tickets (on American - they just declared bankruptcy) and Mr. Grimm has my money. I can't wait to be warm again. Damn New York weather.

I haven't heard that we will be making any water jumps so my gutter gear will stay at home. If I have the pleasure of doing CRW with you again it will be with my Pilot instead of the Stiletto.

Counting down the days.

Who's buying medical/evac insurance and what company are you using?

I used iHi Bpa when I went to Haiti mostly because International SOS was over a grand. Didn't need it so I can't say if it was any good or not.

Just FYI- The airline trip insurance may not cover skyjumpin'. Delta has it through Allianz Global and it is excluded.

Re: [Iago] Skydive Nicaragua boogie-2012 [In reply to] Can't Post

Bought ours through ihi bupa - it still covers skydiving (though it seems recently they've put BASE on their exclusion list). We got full year coverage since it wasn't much more than single trip, which allows encourages us to go on another trip.

Hmm, I hadn't considered the annual policy.

$150 for the single trip with liability.

Annual is $181 for the medical, $300 with the liability option. Not a bad deal.

Well, it's just under 2 weeks out and we're ready!!! About 200 people in total and 127 jumpers.

If you haven't read Richie's emails, here's the scoop!

Manifest will be open on March 2nd for assorted paperwork. Make sure you have your license and an in date rig. There won't be any jumping on the 2nd (they're doing a demo that day) . There is a MANDATORY briefing the morning of March 3rd and then manifest will be open for waivers, gear checks and we'll let the games begin!!!

Rich has done a TON of work for this boogie. This is the FIRST civilian jumping EVER in Nicaragua. Please remember that we are guests of Nicaragua, the Barcelo Montilemar and of Rich and Kristine Grimm. Please conduct yourselves accordingly.

There are a few invite only demos but there are a few "all are welcome" demos going on throughout the boogie. We'll have lots of info available at manifest on the big white boards.

Read the emails that Rich has sent. They have all the info you need to get there. Once you're there, we'll have the rest of the info.

SAFE travels everyone. We'll see you on the beach!!!

And the countdown is on ... 12 sleeps until most of you get there!!!!

So is it bad when 17 out of 18 people land in the ocean? I didn't wake up early enough to watch myself but I counted at least 9 rigs and was told 17. Crazy

haha effect of el lago nicaragua :)

i didnt think about that but what makes it such a great surfing country is the winds blow offshore almost 365 days a year.

I wish I was there but not to jump from a plane that I could do in any bumfuck part of the USA ;)

Re: [grimmie] Skydive Nicaragua boogie-2012 [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, Rich, it sure wasn't what we all expected, was it? Laugh Even though there's not too many (okay ONE) jump in my logbook from the boogie, I'm consoling myself with the fact that just having a civilian skydive in Nicaragua logged puts me in some very esteemed company, as this is definitely the first (and I'm guessing the lastWink) time folks will be jumping there.

I'm not sure who convinced the wind gods to smite us, but whoever did it did a fantastic job - you couldn't have asked for sketchier conditions than those crazy uppers and constant offshore ground winds. Add in the prodigious demand for Cipro by our crew, and you could have had a mutiny on your hands. It's testament to you (and your whole team's) past success in running boogies that instead, you attracted a great group of folks instead who rolled with all the punches and had a great time nonetheless. Sure, we were frustrated, but no one had to be "that guy" about it.

Looking forward to using up some of my leftover jump tickets in Oceanside and wearing the collector's item Skydive Nicaragua t-shirt with pride!

Sure there were winded out days but at the all inclusive resort (including booze), eat and drink to be merry. Your own private rooms (complex was massive), and when you could not skydive there was:

-quad on the beach or into town (with bar stops, try that one at home)
-surf, body boarding
-tours into towns or cities
-volcano sliding (yup, $5 toboggan rental to slide 75 km/h down the side of a real active volcano)
-lobster is the local food
-tons of sun and pool side fun

There may have been more skydiving but this was the usual awesome get together with everyone you know, have a tropical vacation and do some skydiving.

If it's any consolation to any of you, the weather in Belize was just as bad during that period. The whole of Central America experienced unusual winds and rain.

If Rich had had the boogie here again, I think you may have been winded/weathered out most days too. For those who didn't jump much, don't let that put you off, Rich organizes legendary 10 day parties, with some skydiving thrown in as a bonus Laugh

Man, I had a great time even with the winds. I had no intention of doing all 20 jumps even if the weather was perfect. If I did ten I would have considered it an even deal. I got in six plus a few roller-coaster rides in the Caravan.

Oh gee, another windy day. Bummer. Guess I'll have to hang out at the pool with unlimited booze and that rowdy Jersey Shores crew. Again. Woe is me. WinkSly

Watching that Nicaraguan Civil Defense drill at the main building was pretty cool, too.

Re: [Iago] Skydive Nicaragua boogie-2012 [In reply to] Can't Post

That earthquake drill was one of the most surreal things I have ever experienced. It was right after the fateful Ocean Load, after being fished from the sea by the fishermen, totally traumatized and exhausted, I eventually staggered up to the hotel to try and contact my family by Skype, and what do I see as I enter the ground floor but rubble strewn all over the place and a body lying at the foot of the stairs with guts spilling out of his stomach and blood all over him. I seriously thought I must be HALLUCINATING from shock. I could not understand why other workers were standing around not even paying attention to this body... then I finally notice the paper on the wall stating that today was an earthquake simulation emergency drill for the staff. It was the icing on the cake to my most memorable day ever!! Ha ha!

I saw that stuff and at first I thought the previous night's wind storm ripped an HVAC unit off the hotel. Then I saw a TV and I'm thinking someone had a hell of a party and must have launched it off the balcony.

It ended up being a pretty cool thing to watch.
