allow myself to introduce...myself
hi all, i'm new here as well, just saying hi. Did my AFF course last october and have been addicted to skydiving ever since. i had wanted to do the course for like 2 years before i actually had the funds to do it...originally i had gotten into it as a way to eventually get into wing-suit or BASE, but i'm totally digging free fly so we'll see where things go from here.
i live in brasil but i'm thinking about moving to the USA for a few months to get in a bunch of jumps and experience and buy equipment (shit's too expensive here!). i've always wanted to do a cross country bike trip, i'm thinking about making that trip happening, hitting a bunch of dropzones across the country. in brasil i work with the sport slackline so that could be interesting traveling across the US. if anyone has tips of cool places/good seasons of the year to visit/good contacts for anything related to sports - everything is appreciated!
so ok nice to virtually meet you all! bons saltos pra todos! :)

Welcome to the forums! We've had a lot of Brazilians end up in DeLand, maybe FL would be a good start for you. There are so many dz's right here that you could visit. When do you think you would come to the US?

hi! a lot of people i've met here have been to deland actually. i know florida has better weather than other parts of the country...i grew up in new york but anywhere around there is probably too cold to jump or bike in the winter....people have told me about some cheap places to jump in california, which also seems to be a great place for climbing and highlining, so i'll definitely wanna go there too...
as far as dates go, nothing planned yet! i'm trying to get my ideas and projects together... depends on weather and some other things ($$) :-)
