Howdy folks... Can't Post

I'm a new jumper, almost finished with my A license. I've been jumping at Jumptown in Orange, MA since starting an AFF Camp back at the beginning of May. I started with a tandem dive last August for my birthday. It was something I've wanted to do for years and when the opportunity to go with a friend presented itself, I took it. Anyway, that's my short, quick intro. Cheers!

Welcome to the forums! Smile You're doing well almost getting your A so quickly. Have you bought your gear yet?

I've had some great instructors at Jumptown that have helped. It hasn't all been easy though. My wife is getting a little frustrated with the amount of time I'm spending at the DZ but I promised her I'd back off once I get my license. As for gear, I've got the basics; helmet, altimeter, audible, goggles and I have a jumpsuit on order. I'm looking at rigs but having trouble finding anything suitable for me that's used. My exit weight is around 260 and I've been flying a 300 and more recently a 280. There just isn't much used gear that's big enough for me (240-260 is what I've been looking for) so I may end up having to go new which is likely going to have to wait until next spring.

Beer has been paid already, I couldn't stick around but I'm sure they enjoyed it. There was a nice cookout planned for after the last load tonight.
