Paraclete XP visit Can't Post

Just wanted to post a quick video of me and some friends down at Paraclete XP. I had fun editing the footage and wanted to get some feedback from some tunnel experts on how we're doing. Just a fun video, hope you enjoy... watcha think???

I will be there Saturday for my first visit! I'm on AFF 5 and want to see how the time in the tunnel helps.
I love stepping out the door of a plane and turning lose!

I know for sure you'll enjoy yourself. Our instructor has been Selwyn for both of our visits and he is great. Good luck with AFF...

Made my trip to Paraclete XP and it was great. Selwyn and the rest of the staff really make you feel welcome.
He spotted my problems quickly and had me drilling on them. Sure makes a difference when you can stop and look at video and jump right back in and work on the correction.
Sure can make you sore but I will be making this trip as often as I can.

It's addicting isn't? Me and my buddies like to say, I'm kinda glad the tunnel isn't closer because we would definitely go broke... Who needs money anyways though right

I found the experience of trying to control movements in a configned area challenging to say the least. Looking forward to see the results this weekend at the DZ.

Selwyn Facey is a great friend of mine. Never mind the tunnel; he's also a fantastic skydiver and swooper.
