There's a ton of skydivers at my dz who smoke, so I don't think it will be a problem for you. My mom did a tandem and loved it. I hope you do too! Smile

Hey, Congrats!! It's great you're going to do it. Ditto to everything others have said. It's so wonderful being in freefall and under canopy. My wife did a tandem a few years back, she was thrilled! Just remember to relax and enjoy the sensations.

Hi, Mel. TEN MORE DAYS!!!!

In reply to:

Yes, you will want to have several nervous ones before you take off, and one relaxing one after you land. Wink

God for you. You'll find it's more addictive than nicotine.

Re: [melodee] nervous momma [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Mel.
Good luck on your upcoming jump. You'll be smiling real big when your feet hit the ground. As for smokes, just make sure to bring an extra pack, especially if the DZ you are going to is out in the middle of nowhere, like mine. I'm not saying to smoke them all, but having them will feel warm and comforting on such a nervous day. But be real careful with a smoke when you are around people's gear and parachutes. It's easy to space that when your mind is scattered or preoccupied. We had a couple of burns on canopies not long ago.
Jump, scream, land, smile.

Re: [melodee] nervous momma [In reply to] Can't Post

No problems if your a smoker. But bear in mind that you can't light up as soon as the freefall experience ends, like you would after sex. Your in danger of burning a hole in the rig, and at thousands of feet in the air that would be bad. Wink

Re: [hooked] nervous momma [In reply to] Can't Post

It's cold! When I jumped here 2 weekends ago, I had on long johns underneath yoga pants and a long sleeve t-shirt, underneath my jumpsuit plus I had on gloves AND liners...and I was comfortable. But then that silly Vallerina, who came from up north, walked around with a sleeveless shirt on, her jumpsuit and sandals! Crazy

You poor babies, don't know what cold is!SmileWinkSmile
If you come from a cold climate (winter time) then, no, Florida is not cold. If all you know is the warm climate of Florida, then yes, winter is probably 'cold' to you, but not for us!Smile
