Welcome to the forums! Smile Who is Megan, does she post here or is she just getting you into skydiving? You're from Baton Rouge, so let me say...Geaux Tigers! Cool

This is Megan. Hello everyone. Yes I am responsible for Travis. Be nice to him. He is a good guy (he hasn't made his first jump yet).
I post occasionally, but I tend to shy away from message boards due to the amount of argueing and biccering that goes on. I am an avid skydiver though.

Welcome to the family Travis. YEEHAW!!

No psychiatrist needed. What you need is a good jump! I do recommend that when you jump ask another jumper to go with you. (even if you do a tandem) it is pretty neat to see someone flying around you up there! So if you get it videod, which is a must in my book and do a tandem, there should be four that leave the plane when you do. Have a blast and start saving now!

i'm sure megan (in all of her gracefull landing glory) will be there rockin out with me Cool.

I am going to skip the tandem part and attemp the first AFF jump (something about just holding on to someone for the entire times kills it for me).

I will keep you all updated and thank you for the welcome!

HEY!!! DON'T MOCK MY LANDINGS!!!! Its more of an art than a science. And, yes I will ride in the plane with you, but I won't try to catch you in freefall as this is way too distracting on an AFF jump.
My landings are like this--------I'm very accurate in where I land, just not so much in how I flare.

Your day will come. You'll have to land too and boy will I laugh my ass off at you.

What if you hold onto me for the entire time? Does that kill it for you?

Good Luck Travis, there is no way in hell I would have jumped out of that plane the first time without going tandem, I would have freaked out! But I am a big ole wuss, so good luck and have fun!

Hopefully when you hear "DOOR", it'll be me yelling it at you and then you'll know everything will be okay becuase the megmeister would never do anything to hurt you.

why the hell not? Keeps the thread going... eventually the main topic always dies and transfers to something else or just plain dies.
