Hey ho! Can't Post

So it's official.... I'm overwhelmingly addicted to skydiving!

I started my AFF in mid April and I've clocked up 35 jumps so far!
I just bought my own gear and I'm in love with it. If I could marry it I would. I got myself a Jav with a Tri 168 and Raven 150 Res.

Don't tell the other skydivers but sometimes I repack my canopy mid week so I can do SOMETHING related to skydiving just to scratch the itch! Wink Haha

So I'm from Australia and my home DZ is Nagambie in Victoria!
I'm heading to San Fran in August for some tunnel time and jumping at Lodi which I cannot wait for!!!

I'm hitting Perris for a couple of days before I go home as well, hoping to do a Balloon or heli jump!
I'm staying at the IHOP in Perris which I've heard is a lot of fun!

For my 100th jump my plan is to do an Undie Hundie Wingsuit Rodeo! Tongue

If you're a Lodi or Perris local, hit me up! I want to have a beer with YOU!!

Hell yea!

There's some really nice DZ's in Aus! Just make sure you've got a few jumps before you come over here. Our regulations are waaaaaay more strict than other countries apparently... There's all these additional licenses and stuff...

I'm sure you'll have a blast over here!

Don't get your hopes up about doing a balloon jump. I wanted to do one with my wife before leaving CA and they tried to tell her she needed more jumps. If your profile numbers are right, she had at least twice as many as any of you who are talking about it. Don't hate me. I just wanted you to be informed before you get all excited then get shot down.

Thanks for that info... I did hear that there were certain jump numbers so I'll see what I'm up to by the time I get there and ask around! :)

Otherwise I'll be stoked just to be jumping out of different planes! :) I'm always jumping from an XL.
