Atlanta tunnel? Can't Post

I'm flying into Atlanta in December to pick up my new rig at ChutingStar and would like to get some tunnel-time done while in the area.. anyone know of a good place to go?
would also like some suggestions when it comes to coaches in the area, as I'm a total newbie, I have never flewn in a tunnel before..

appreciate any help,
Alex.

Closest indoor tunnel to Atlanta is going to be the XP tunnle in North Carolina at around a 6 hour drive. The Orlando tunnel is a 7.5 hour drive south. Depending on the weather you might be able to get to the outdoor tunnel at AAC in North Carolina that is a 3.5 hour drive but its extremely limited on hours and weather.

after a bit of googling however, this link always turned up but it seems like it might be an automated site which puts in whatever town you write in the google searchfield..

I jump at the Farm and a group of us just went up to XP and we had a blast. It's a very nice tunnel.

Who knows who will be there, but I'm sure you'll find people to jump with. Cool

sounds good, beer is on me if we find each other there - just look for a tall, blonde norwegian with a shiny new Icon on his back Wink

You should always be able to find someone to jump with at the Farm. Hans (the DZ manager) is really good about setting visitors up with people to jump with, according to interests. Cool Also, everyone at ChutingStar is great too, you'll have a blast!
