NEW SKYDIVE ADDICT!! Can't Post

SmileWOW! I did my first tandem on valentines day and it was so fantastic. I've wanted to do it since I was 14 (I'm now 27) and it was better than I ever imagined. Thinking about it still makes me grin from ear to ear! I've got my bank loan sorted and will be doing my AFF course next month. So, till I can get back up there I'll just have to keep looking at my tandem video and photos! And read my Skydivers Handbook. I am truly an addict already! Wink

Re: [hooked] NEW SKYDIVE ADDICT!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Just did my first jump on Sunday and I am now in the same boat as Suzie I am totally hooked! I am still riding the biggest high from it, even 3 days later. I am going to complete jumps 2 and 3 this coming Sunday and am counting down the days until I can get back up in the sky. I have already resigned to the fact that I am going to get my license now so I can jump anywhere I better start eating cat food!

Re: [Suzie] NEW SKYDIVE ADDICT!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Welcome to both Suzie and Allicat.

I did my first jump (a tandem) on July 14th, 2002. And once the TM told me about the AFF training, I became totally addicted to the sport (that was 167 jumps ago in a seven month time span). If you two are as addicted as many of us here on DZ.COM are, you'll be in good company. It's hard to imagine life without skydiving in it now. Angelic

Welcome to the sky and to the forums! Smile There are a bunch of people from the UK here. Do a search in the skydiver's database and you'll find them. Or, maybe they'll pop their heads in here and say hi.

Re: [Suzie] NEW SKYDIVE ADDICT!! [In reply to] Can't Post

what a fun time, I bet I watched my tandem video over 100 times.

It is cool after you get a few more videos, and 100 jumps or so, you will pull that tandem video out and watch it, and it will just be funny

Welcome to the sky.

Congrats Suzie! I'm sure you will enjoy it.
Just keep a very very very close eye on that nasty four letter word you used - LOAN - Make sure you are ready for the financial end of skydiving before you get in tooooooo deep and can't dig your way out! It's one thing not to buy a new car or maybe a few less trips to the movie theatre. I think I sold most of my scuba diving equipment when I got hooked to help with my expenses. But remember - enjoy it - don't let the $ add a stressor in your life!Smile

No problem, its definitely not the cheapest of hobbies but I can't help myself, it has to be done! I can always fly to work instead of driving.

All I can say is, good choice!Cool
"Banana Man" is one of the most respected skydivers in Europe, and a great guy into the bargain.
