Greetings from NorCal
I'm a new AFF student jumping out of Cloverdale with both Jimmys Halliday. I just finished my level 3 this past Sunday. What a beautiful zen rush! I was released by both of my wingmen and flew totally stable :) It's slow going for me, because I've been traveling a bunch this summer, but am planning to do 4 and 5 the weekend after this.
These forums are awesome for me, learning so much by reading other divers' experiences and advice. I'm happy to report that I've never yet had to by a case of beer (thanks you guys!), lol
I know this is for me...never before have I done anything so perfectly fitted to my dreams. I know I'll never again look at the skies the same way.

Ha! Thank you! I though it would be harder, but I kept reminding myself to relax. Honestly I didn't feel them let me go, I just noticed it when I saw them in my periphery...I turned to look at my main instructor and realized I was initiating a turn, lmao! He tapped me back, I regained my heading and just...flew!
Ooh, all-time favorite brew, to gift or sip...Racer 5, from the Bear Republic micro brewer just North of my home. Too yummy, might have to offer up two cases.
Is there anything better? But interesting, I have never seen any of those guys drink beer...perhaps this DZ doesn't share this tradition?
