    Pants & Jacket vs. suit

    THEY SUCK ! Unless you have a harness or clips to connect the pants to jacket , the jacket will end up around your neck while belly flying or head up freeflying . Luckily I cant fly HD or the pants would probably end up around my ankles

    Removing an AAD

    Reserve has to be opened to access and remove the AAD . You could do it yourself , but why bother , you will need a rigger to repack it anyway . I would suggest you get a rigger to do it but watch him . Its a great way to learn about your gear

    sharing tunnel time-> coach or not?

    The tunnel rats are great , but you end up paying full rate for the tunnel time . Many coaches buy time in bulk then resell the time to you at a much cheaper rate inc their coaching ( inc myself ) Im not trying to tout for business here but if you check the IPC facebook page , I have posted info about upcoming camps .

    there is a nice new bunk house on the DZ ,think its about €5 per night , Alternatively you can stay in Ma's B&B ,15 minutes walk from DZ but its within crawling distance of Richies pub
