Why do you need 'camera training' for Lodi? I know for a fact that jumpers with less than 300 jumps have done camera for tandems at Lodi.

With your jump numbers, you should be able to walk straight into a job.

Reread the OP...He is looking for a camera person to help train him at Lodi!

I hope he finds a vertaran...Steve Scott saved me probably hundreds of jumps with just a simple sit down and talk over a beer!

Very good, sir.

Nice to see that people are always ready to bring out the good old tar and feathers. Crazy

Cheap jumps is my guess. It's interesting, however, that Bill Dause's last plane to crash (due to poor MX) happened in Canada, but then this guy will leave Canada and go striaght to the location of Bill's other poorly maintained planes.

No, that's the answer to "Why did the chicken cross the road?" But thanks for your usual brand of "help".

LMFAO!!! OMG! - Best (and most direct/correct/observant/appropriate) reply I've seen to a PeteJones post yet. About as "spot on" (and succinct) as it comes. - Boo-ya!

Sorry for the brief de-rail. I just could not resist.
+1 Andy!

Carry on.

Hey guys,

Going to Lodi because of price. Whoever guessed that one is bang on. Also, there is a few objects in particular in the area we are hoping to hit.

Not going to work but to train.

In regards to Tj, is that his home dz. Does he do one on one coaching or anything like that?

Thx for the help boys

You know Canada is a big place right?
Actually according to google, Toronto is about 100 miles closer to Lodi than Pitt Meadows.
But you're right, he is going for the cheap jump tickets. and the base jumping, and the weather.

You're very quick to cry "PA", aren't you. That's twice already this morning.

Do you feel victimized?

I notice that you are now up to 3 x "That's a PA" today.

Do you win a set of steak knives now? Do you remember the story of the boy who cried wolf?

TJ can coach you in just about anything you need/want coaching in. He does work there on occasion. Guess you could call it his home dz
