The thing that's made them memorable is the people who are on them. Cool

Lets just hope your 100 isn't as costly as mine. I had to chop and lost my main.

Hi NWF

I agree except YMMV depending on the vibes of the DZ and the Gender of the jumper involved.Wink

Re: [dreamtoy] the special number 100 [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm having the same dilemma. I'm stuck at 99 trying to decide (not really, my reserve's just been in for a repack...)

Options I've considered:
-high pull (leaning towards this, if possible)
-track dive
-hog flop
-fun 6-way with a block
-Mr. Bill
-1st sitfly jump (not on the beer list, but hell, I'm buying beer anyway, I can use the F-word freely)

What I end up doing will depend on who is around when I get down to the DZ next...

(edit for coherence)

High pull is considered a landmark jump? Man, I do them whenever I get a chance. If you don't do it for your 100th, do it for you 101st. It's a great way to learn your canopy and a blast to be up so high alone, and when it's stupid hot on the ground, remember it's often bone numbing cold at altitude.

Re: [tmccann] the special number 100 [In reply to] Can't Post

Am I interpreting this correctly? It sounds like you're saying you're holding off jumping until you come up with something good to do for your 100th.....

I you think of something cool to do it's gonna be an awesome and memorable jump anyway - the number 100 is gonna have nothing to do with it!

My favourite jump so far has been doing a Mr Bill - this was supposed to be for my 200th jump but it was perfect weather, I wanted to jump all day and my mate I was gonna jump with wasn't around until later so I think I actually did it on 204. But what does it matter - it wouldn't have been a better jump just because it was done right on 200!

Sorry if I've got the wrong end of the stick, but I've seen quite a few people holding off so they can do something different on a "milestone jump" and I personally don't really get it.....

Do an undie hundie! I didn't do my 100th in undies, 'cause it was simply too damn cold. Did mine in vintage style, with me in my moms old jumpsuit from the 80's, and my (now ex) boyfriend in my dad's old jumpsuit from the 80's. That was pretty awesome, but I went along on a friend's undie hundie later, and that really was a lot of fun too!

100 isn't that special. It's only 64 in hexadecimal.

The problem with jumping naked is if you land off and kids see you, you can be registered as a sex offender in america, depending on the state you live in.

That is why you ought to be able to spot if you are going to make a naked jump. WinkWinkWink
OK, if you have to chop on that jump, well... land and then wrap the canopy around your lower parts...

Nope (hence the "not really"), I had to drop off my rig for a reserve repack!

Go back to your beginnings in the sport - do a solo jump, do no maneuvers, just look around and enjoy the scenery, feel the wind, reflect upon the magnificence of what you're doing, and grin.

Although I suppose it is technically possible for that to be an eventuality, unless your intent is to expose yourself to minors, that just isn't going to happen.

One reason for waiting until #100 is to make sure you have the mad skills to NOT to land where the ankle-biters are.

If you were to land in a questionable area, make every effort to cover up with the multi-colored toga that previously was over your head.

I've personally have heard of only one incident where someone got charged with anything. He was originally charged with indecent exposure and plead it down to something like disorderly conduct.

I should hope that NEKKID OR NOT, by 100 jumps you should be able to spot. Smile

BTW, I vote nekkid. Angelic

How about a naked Mr. Bill? It's a high pull, a Mr. Bill, kinda like a sitfly for a second, and if you're the Bill you can track after you let go. Win... win... win... win and win!
