You have jumped out of an airplane several times now solely because you want to.

You are no longer a whuffo

10 years! Shocked
Well, at least i'll be off whuffo status. I thought tourists are the tandem jumpers (not the instructors but the passengers)?

In any case, for being off whuffo status i'll bring a case of brew the next time i'm at Perris.

Nah, "tourists" are the ones who get into the sport, get all wrapped up in it, say "OMG I'll NEVER EVER EVER stop skydiving" and sell their gear within 3-4 years because life changes or the next shiny thing comes along.

Nothing wrong with that, but it's kind of funny to watch when they first start and are convinced they're the special ones who will never quit. Reality is, most do.

Sincerely,
Still a tourist (2 more years, 98 more jumps needed)Cool

When you learn to write complete sentences in your thread titles so that we know what they're about.

When you know the answer......
"whuffo you jump out of a perfectly good airplane?"
If you know the answer, you stop asking the question.

You get off whuffo status right around 100 jumps which incidentally happens to be about the time you know everything.
