A license Can't Post

Finally got my A license! Passed my checkdive on jump 23 with no prior practice docking, passed the oral with no problems at all, and my last jump was a friggin' blast. Did a back flip out the door, did front flip, back flip, several barrel rolls, tracking, some turns, up and down, and still had about 2,000 feet to enjoy the scenery before pulling. Time to start having fun. Of course that relies on my finding a job and then some gear.

Thanks Kevin! That's the intention. Always been a safe person, never going to compromise on that, but now it's time to do something fun. Cool

Should I ask what the horny guerrilla is? And for now, I'm just going to work with one partner, start feeling out the factors in RW jumping, see if I can improve before getting into bigger formations.

you have probably seen it but basicaly everyone locks feet together and takes grips at elbows or hands or shoulders. it spin and flips and when it actually flies its kind of cone shaped its a wild ride

A horny guerilla chats up women then blows up the bar when they reject him.

A horny gorilla is a skydiving formation. Searching the forums will provide plenty of information on what it is and how to safely accomplish one.

However, your plan of 2-ways focussing on RW skills sounds plenty fine to me.

I figured someone wasn't a spelling champ, but thanks for the clarification. Wink

I'll start researching formations, and I'll probably get video of at least one formation in the near future for critique on skydivingmovies.com.
