Well I can fall pretty good
Otherwise I'm just learning... I'm not the worst skydiver ever but I think I'm ahead of most of the curve. Also, I'm in quite a different situation than most. I have a kick ass job, lets me pay the skydiving bills easily (I'm that new guy with all the new shit, lol. but in my defense, I'm 6'7" and finding used containers and jumpsuits to fit me is just unlikely) but I also have to spend half the year on a ship, 3 months at a time. So I got to 20 jumps before I got called back early, so unfortunately didn't finish out my A card. Being away though just makes me wanna jump more, and reading a lot of these forum threads lets me try and understand more about the sport and where I wanna head with it.
The funny thing is, that I'm interested in a lot of the disciplines that there are, from wingsuiting to freeflying to BASE. I guess there's plenty of time for it all, and no need to tell me to belly fly for a while, I've seen it countless times in the threads. I'm gonna get good at some stuff then take off for work again haha. Anyways, if anyone is gonna be at TJP in St. Mary's this summer, I hope you won't mind me crowding the 182!

Welcome to the forums! Once you get your A license, you should branch out and check out some of the other FL dz's. If you make it to DeLand, you'll love the comfort of the Skyvan!

Ah yeah, Jaime, I could see where you think that. Nope I'm a reservist through and through, just work in the merchant marine. I'll definitely find you when I get out there, thinking that I might just head out there in early July to look around (won't have any of my gear) or early August (I'll have my gear with me). Be nice to have another newbie to jump with
Deland is my home dz, but I also travel to the other FL dropzones. My last jump was at Disappearing Island a few weeks ago. (Get your B license so you can sign up for the next one!) My weekends have been busy since then, but I hope to get back out there soon!
