Do you just call to do this?? And dont you have to have a light of some sort during night jumps? Where could I find one? Or could I just get one there?

 Requirements are a strobe light visible for 3 miles (I believe...can't remember the distance off the top of my head). I have one in my gear bag if you want to borrow it. Otherwise we bought ours at REI for like $20.00.

Last year they had all the lights you could want there so no need to buy one unless you're that particular about your gear.

I just emailed TK, told him I wanted to do the jumps & included my C license.

Laci took an amusing picture of me last year, wasn't on the night jump though, I think it was sunset.

You would have to know specifically which night and then you could forecast the conditions for that night reasonably accurately a couple of hours in advance.

Kidding aside... the weather report shows a front passing through the area on Christmas day and if it moves on it should be very nice during the weekend and most of the following week. Maybe a little cool, but that makes the campfire cosy and usually keeps the skeeters at bay.Smile
