Good to hear that you had a great time. My Dad and I did our first tandem the same day. Although, it was the other way around, his idea not mine!

Aren't you just so darned proud? It's an amazing thing, this jumping. I mean, throw yourself out of a plane?

YES!!!! What it can teach you about how to live life at 1--% commitment is incredible, and how it translates into your ground life is interesting.

You rawk, Melodee. I'm thrilled for you. When are you going back up???

YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!

I know how you feel. I hate driving up to the DZ (3 hours 15 minutes) all by myself. And my friends have already been up there and they hate it (of course that's cause they couldn't jump). My best friends parents won't let him jump (he turned 17 in september...or october...) yet. He said he'll go up to the DZ again when his parents say yes (or most likely when he turns 18).

Amazing isn't it?Smile

So when are you going again? The noise of freefall and the quiet of the canopy ride is all amazing!

Sounds like you had a great first jump! You'll be thinking about it all the time. I know I do. May even brave the chilly weather for another go on Sunday.

you do realize this is your first in the sport so you owe a few people some beer (namely your instructors, staff, and those at your DZ,,oh and me).

It seems the Lone Ranger is dredging old threads. Goon I think you owe beer for answering a 10 year old thread Tongue

Hi Jerry

We can do better than that.

We got Moms and BV watching our backs this isn't their first rodeo dealing with a stalker

Since someone brought up the geo political issue maybe the mods could just move the thread to SC
