Re: [notsane] Friday High Altitude Flock [In reply to] Can't Post

In reply to:
Viv has sent some additional info on the high altitude jump ...

I received an email from one of the brothers Gray and others, to put a few people on the High Altitude Load for Friday, 13th. We don't usually manifest jumpers ahead of time so jumpers can have an equal opportunity of getting on these loads. But we are willing to reserve this load for the WS jumpers, or start manifesting, but it needs to be prepaid- $60 cash or $61 Credit card.

Reminder: If you are on the Friday the 13th High Altitude Wingsuit Jump don't forget to email Viviana and let her know that you want to reserve a slot on that load.

Her email address is: boogie@xtremedivers.com

This is a huge disappointment, Stoney - it won't be the same without you. I will have to perform stupid human tricks (a.k.a., "Hold my beer and watch this...") in your honor.

I can second that one. I got to explore the swamp and meet all of the tropical flora and fauna in a search for my main. It was only later on in the evening, when I was hanging out at the party at the dropzone, that I realized there were probably plenty of these guys in the swamp: http://i80.photobucket.com/...xley71/bigspider.jpg (the picture doesn't do him justice, but the Brothers Gray can confirm that this dude was one Big Assed Spider).

I will arrive this Friday, and I plan to do some scuba diving on a wall off of the south side of the island.

Is anyone interested in joining me?

WooHoo! One week left! [In reply to] Can't Post

I wanted to re-post this for your consideration ...

Some last minute items to think about:

I hate to travel on commercial flights with my gear, but both USPA and Cypres have some hints for making it easier (below) ...

Remember to put your hook knife in your checked bag as well as your personal flotation device, if you bring one. PFD's are not required for beach jumps, but while "life insurance" only pays when you're dead, this investment pays off when you live. I wear one for the beach jumps ... Cabela's has them (below).

Airlines are also being real dicks about the weight limit on checked bags. Weigh your bags when you pack them, or, like a fat girl who wants sex, be prepared to pay (giggity).

Just thought I would throw this out there ... if anyone is willing to work with me on my backflying or wants to work on small and technical flocks feel free to find me. I can't wait for the warm weather and wingsuits!

Edit: Also, I would be interested in demoing a Vampire II or III if there are going to be any Phoenix-Fly representatives ...

I just read page 5 and it looks like the answer was yes if you provide your own transpo. But I'm not even on the jump, so what do I care, as long as you all don't drown? Shocked
