Gear: I need a Cypress, I can't afford a Cypress, so I don't have one yet.

I'd use the money to JUMP and TRAINING, that's very important to me, what's the point of spending money in gear if you can't jump. Tongue

I'd pick tunnel camp. I want to get really good at RW, and from all that I've heard, tunnel camp would be a massive help increasing my skill set.

I hate renting gear, i throw 70 bucks a week just on gear. So 1500 would get me started w/ a new container.

Tunnel camp. Why? Cuz Kate said it's worth every penny and that she learned a lot. She's been jumping for over 20 years; if she learned and improved a lot I can only imagine how much I'd learn and improve there.

The extra couple hundred I'd use for additional tunnel time in the evenings after the regular sessions are done. If there was anything left over I'd buy my coach(es) a beer.

Tunnel Camp! Already got two hours under my belt and it was a total blast. The coaches are fantastic, the environment is charged and the results are big-time real. Did I mention the coaching is fantastic?Cool

I'll nurse my gear until Jessica gives me another $1500.00 Wink

Did I mention the people are great, and the environment for training and fun make it worth every penny?!

Good Stuff!!Smile

Tunnel Camp/Skydive U...

and maybe a jumpsuit. I really want a Pro-Track, but I would definitely benefit more from some intensive training...

Tunnel Camp.

I've got all the gear I need, am already doing all the jumps I want to. I'm yet interested in my ratings.

The one thing I've never done yet, and would improve my skills more then anything else, is tunnel time.

I picked "Jumps" since I would use the money for packers, and hence, be able to jump more!

I had to go with 'Other'.

Funny that you use the figure '$1,500.' That's the exact amount I need to build myself an anti-bad-weather ray, that I would subsequently use to produce beautiful weather on demand.

That's about what I'm going to spend on my February trip to the Domincan Republic to participate in their Air Force Boogie.

So I guess my answer is, a skydiving adventure in a third world country.

I'd go on one serious bender. Then use what's left to go south and go on another bender. Whatever's left goes for jumps

Re: [lippy] Here's $1,500! [In reply to] Can't Post

If I got $1500 but had to spend it on skydiving, I would, without doubt, get more of my gear. Since I will most likely be ordering a new harness, that's what I'd get. The extra $$ (if any) would go towards either more canopy coaching, or some RW coaching.

I wish someone would send me $1500.
