Welcome to the Forums!

Sorry it's all cold up there -

Vacation down in the south, there are a lot of DZ's open all year, and all the cool kids are there anyway.:D:ph34r:
I'm not usually into the whole 3-way thing, but you got me a little excited with that. - Skymama

Thanks all for the warm welcome and invitations. I would love to head south for the winter but unfortunatelly I shook the piggy bank dry (and maxxed a credit card or three) to go to get my license @ SDC. I guess I could have gotten it here in CO and saved a little scratch. But I did my tandem jumps about 4-5 years ago in Eloy and was immediately addicted. The problem was I couldn't afford to go any farther with it at the time. So I've spent the last couple years just reading, watching, and learning about the sport as much as possible. (This was me and two lifelong friends/roommates that did this.) We had talked and planned to get our licenses but that was as far as it ever went. :( Last winter we made a pact that this summer would be the one, NO MATTER WHAT!! So we made it happen. This whole time reading everything we could about several different dropzones, we decided that SDC would be the best place to go. Very happy we did!!!! But now I have not a penny to my name, my credit card is 2 months behind, my cell phone has been turned off, and I still haven't been able to pay rent this month!!!
But I have no regrets, instead a license to fly!!! And I would do it all over again.

Anyways, thats why I wont be able to come jump with ya'll this winter. But after saving and repaying all this winter, I'm gonna quit my job, sell my shit, and move to SDC for the next summer season!!! Then where I end up!!! Well that's in the clouds!!!

Blue Skies!!!

Seriously! I was impressed. It's funny how much you feel it. 400 hp in a plane that size didn't sound like that much. Glad I got to experience that so early.

Either way I'm just glad to have any otter. They are sweet.



i wasn't being sarcastic, i really did enjoy that plane. it was awesome except for the blue mat on the floor, that shit was slippery[:/]

yes it is! A few times during my AFP there were only 4-5 of us in the plane and we were messing around a bit sliding from the front to the rear for kicks waiting to get to altitude!
