2 years or 104 weekends!



That's the same amount of time I have left in Turkey!

(note to self: schedule vacation in Belgium)

Give me a chance to figure out where the cool places and DZs are and come on over!
I know it just wouldnt be right to kill all the stupid people that we meet..

But do you think it would be appropriate to just remove all of the warning labels and let nature take its course.

Karl and Vector: Thanks for the information! I'll see what I can find out.

If I found myself in Belgium, I'd head straight to Bruge and find Chloe!:)



If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me - but I didn't, so it doesn't.:|



I have a co-worker in the UK who considers Belgium a total bore. But I don't think Chloe would be boring:

And a French accent!:)

True, but then I thought, maybe that's what hell is, the entire rest of eternity spent in fucking Bruges.


(But they do have midgets, so that's good.)
Do you want to have an ideagasm?

Glad you made it! I thought you were headed to England... but at least Belgium is a better class of people. They still have all their teeth. (ducks) :ph34r:

DZ Moorsele - Great DZ, find Ronny the rigger, he's good people
DZ Schaffen
Skydive Center Spa - Find Jimmy & Muad in the gear store, the'll look after you



The DZ closest to Chievres will probably be Cerfontaine: http://www.skydivecerfontaine.be/nl/pros_dropzone_nl.html
For Moorsele, Schaffen and Zwartberg, check http://www.pcv.be/en/welcome
For Hoevenen: http://www.paraclubhoevenen.net
For Spa: http://www.skydivespa.be
and then there's Temploux, but I've never been there so not sure if they have a website.

Have fun!

Looks like the nearest dz is two hours away? Old one was 45 minutes. Rats. But it looks like it's a really cool dz. As soon as I find a place to live and have my stuff delivered, I'll be heading that way. Still have to find out how far it is to the lz.

Going into Brussels today with my sponsor and his family. Should be fun.

Thanks for all of the help!

Isn't Chievres to the north of Mons - Bergen ?
It shouldn't be more than a 1 hour and 10 minutes drive ?

On the other hand, Moorsele is only 10 KM's more in total, but the greater part of your route will be over highways, so that one is only one hour away.

It is quite close to Mons. Mapquest says Spa is two hours away. I'll find out.

When you are new to a unit (especially moving overseas) another member of the unit is assigned as your sponsor to help show you where everything is, show you the ropes, welcome you in, etc.

For some reason I think I've read you're a scuba diver?

This seems pretty cool to check out:

You think you read correctly! Thanks for the information. My equipment is here, I've just got to find a place to live so I can have it delivered.
