     Mike & Chris decided to pack it in a few months back, so now, most of the Dothan area & Ft Rucker people are jumping over here in Tallahassee. It's about a 2 hr drive ..We fly a very nice King Air every Saturday & Sunday. A lot of the Alabama peeps come over & stay (camp out) on Saturday night....

I used to jump at skydive opelika in Tuskegee, AL. Couple hours from Dothan I think. Small cessna DZ, very friendly...this was a few years back though.

I only had the opportunity to jump at Headland's grand opening boogie with a King Air. It was a lot of fun, and I stayed in Mike's house over the weekend. Great people. I don't think Mike and Chris had the same gusto to keep the DZ going after what happened to Sandy Godwin, but they weren't breaking even either. It's tough to run a DZ far away from any major city when there's another one closer.

Before they opened Headland, they were jumping at Skydive Opelika in Tuskegee and that's how I met them. Is Buddy Blue still driving that POS van he calls his mobile DZ? Laugh

Just FYI the DZ is still going strong with Buddy at the Helm. He's not driving the van anymore though.

I never knew Sandy. He was before my time jumping at Buddy's. I've heard a few stories though. I put his old rig back in the air this past weekend.

For the two people that will see this, I used to jump at Skydive Headland and just opened a 182 DZ called Skydive Panama City. Check it out!

Probably a good idea to add a link since the chances are 100% if I Google Skydive Panama City I'm going to end up with shit from 1-800-SkyScam or one of the other 10 names they are using. I hope you don't accept their certificates.
