It was talked about here between a friend and I. I'm up for it depending on my job situation. How awesome would it be to jump at midnight with the glow of the sun still there.

In my opinion, it is one of the best boogies out there. Very mellow, but fun. The weather can be iffy at times, but definately worth going.

If you are thinking about going, I'd book a flight now, as flights just go up in price for alaska in the summer.

I'm 95% sure I can make it. I just reserved a flight using frequent flyer miles, since those go quickly. Assuming I can make it work around work, I'm in. Smile

Hmm.... I wonder if Kapowsin will let me hop a ride on the Otter? Sly

Yeah, I thought about that... not to worry, I've got a commercial flight booked. I figure that's 3 1/2 hours... the ride on the Otter's got to be longer. Not fun...

Is it something that has to be done in advance?

Nope. you can book it when you get here. Just remember, if its a really nice day, try to go out then. Book as soon as you get here so you can be on one of the first loads. Last year, we had 2 days of PERFECT weather. THen the last 2 days was a downpour. I sneaked into a slot for the Glacier when another jumper decided to do it later in the Boogie. He never got his chance because of the rain.
How long are you gonna be up for? Just the boogie? Or make a little extended vacation out of it?

I wish. Plan right now is fly up Thursday night, home Sunday night. If for whatever reason I'm not on a project at that time (doubtful, though) I may be able to extend, but no plans to at this point.
