How to make Jump #100 Special? Can't Post

I know some people do naked jumps.
I know some people to hoops and such.
I am a few jumps away and wanted to get advice on how you more experienced jumpers made this milestone stand out for you.

Naked.

The only way to go for your 100th.

Get other people to go jump with you naked as well.

Go naked. Especially since summer is not yet over.

Jump naked on a sunset load, drink Forty-Creek and clean the whipped cream off your mug. Smile

Ask some old timers if they'll make you a cake.

I had my first malfunction, a total, with a round and a belly wart reserve container with another round in it.

Very memorable!

The main thing is, whatever you do, be sure you can make jump #101.

Cool

Let people who you like know that it's your 100th. They'll make it special no matter what you do on it. Wink I did a wingsuit rodeo for mine b/c I had been wanting to for a while and we had a skyvan. It was a fun jump but what made it special was the pieing. The entire boogie came out to pie me that night. It was awesome! Cool I still meet people to this day that go "oh my god! that was you?" because they remember my pieing too Tongue

You mean you just admitted that you weren't pied for your 100th? You do realize there is no statute of limitation on pie, right? Tongue

My advice would be - don't try too hard, and don't get hung up on doing something out of the ordinary.

Dangers include:
- Taking forever to do your hundredth, because you're waiting around for the right people/ organiser/ equipment to make it special.
- Having a zoo dive because you wanted to do something beyond your capability or that of all the friends you wanted to be on it.
- Pressurising yourself with the fear of screwing up your landmark jump. Wink

Sure, if the timing is good then it's nice to plan and do something out of the ordinary - but if not, then you can always just go ahead and log it, and then at some point when the conditions are right do that celebratory jump to mark it.

Have fun!

Take yourself back to day 1...do a static line jump....while blindfolded and get led down by radio. I see this done quite a bit around here. Minor planning, nearly guaranteed to work and it is a VERY VERY VERY different experience and scary as hell.

Is this serious?

Seems like there are many things that could go very wrong...

Seems like an awesome way to ditch someone in the pond Tongue
