Hi, my name is Ari and I am definitely a tunnel addict. Last year I earned the nickname "Tunnel Junkie."

Last time I flew was about 10 days ago Shocked but I'll be flying again tonight Smile

Here's my list:
Before I start skydiving (and had no idea that a tunnel was even related to skydiving) I flew in two tunnels:
About 5 minutes at Mobile Aerodium in Vernon, NJ
About 5 minutes at Flyaway Las Vegas

Since I've started jumping I haven't kept track of my tunnel time at all, but I'd *guess* that I have around 80-90 hours in SkyVenture Orlando.

Most of my flying now is freeflying for fun, but I've done a lot of RW, 4-way and coaching in there as well.

Tunnels are great! Smile

Thanks Paige, your sweet! I THOUGHT perhaps it was you who ordered that stuff.. how many tunnel rat "paige"s are there?!?!?

Rantoul.. for sure.. we'll have Adren-L-N back again, so far anyway.. so if you guys come early we'll take to some time and head on over to the new tunnel!
We always have to head up to the WFFC a couple of days early to setup.. so keep that in mind.. if you get there early with us.. well, you might just have to help us fill all that empty tunnel time before the skydivers get there!!!!! Wink

oh and BTW Tunnel Junkie shirts being released VERY SOON!!!

I don't log tunnel time. When I first flew in one nearly 17 years ago, none of us thought of it.

Anyway, I was trained (pre-AFF) in the Flyaway Tunnel in Pigeon Forge, TN.

I have also flown in the Skyventure Orlando, FL tunnel.

I have countless time in the Fort Bragg, NC tunnel.

I plan to visit the AAC Tunnel near Maggie Valley, NC this year.

My name is Scott and I am a tunnel junkie...

I had about 5 hours in the Orlando tunnel...... Untill I applied for a job here...
That was about a month ago and with all the training I would say that I had about 40 hours in there...

TongueSo I guess this make me a real big junkie.

But what a thing to have an addiction to!!Laugh

Howdy... my real name is Steve
And I admit... I have a problem too! I reply to stupid posts made about stupid crap!!
As far as the amount of time I have in the tunnel (SkyVEnture of course - as if there were another) I couldn't tell yah and frankly I've never cared.
Hell it could take one person an hour to learn what it takes another in a month... so time... like jump numbers.... really don't matter. I know people who have a couple hundred jumps who blow away jumpers with several thousand - as far as counting hours anyway... you might as well ask a crack-whore how much whoring she's done - hell she don't know! Unless your one of dem anal people who writes down every little thing you've done... or tried! Anyway... I got lots of time and I still suck... being an old bastard makes it tough to learn!
Well at any rate... I challenge y'all to quit your bragging about how much of your time you've spent floating in some air and let's see you spend more time jumping! Hell... a lot of you claim your better in the tunnel than you are in the air... sounds like you've been spending too much simulating and not enough of the real thing!

My name is Judit and whenever I'm around a tunnel (which is not very often Frown) I'm addicted to it.
I have 3 hours 45 minutes in the Perris tunnel, out of that 45 minutes coaching with Eli Thompson and 45 minutes with Mike Swanson. I haven't been in a tunnel since January but I'm quite proud that i did 1 hours 30 mins in 2 days in January. Just wish i could do that all the time ...
