  1. I want to say thank you everyone who has shared their story as to why and when they jumped its been quite interesting to read :)
  2. What a super interesting story(for me it feels more then a bucket list at this point) It is hard for me to explain but its something I just know I wanna do so badly. I do not think I will be satisfied with just one jump but for now one step at time I want to get at least one tandam jump out of the way before thinking about the next step.
  3. . 19 at ft. Campbell Ky. Wanted to jump since a child. Dad was active airborne. I remember in Germany watching a demo where he stomped the X 10 to 15 feet away from me . In a double zipper jumpsuit. With para boots round belly reserve slung to the side . Under a para commander. BOOM! Stood it up. Had a military harness center punch. Released all the seatbelt buckles and cool as shit stepped away from the chute as it collapsed. I WAS hooked at 9 yo Awe what an amazing story! I have wondered a lot what kids of skydivers end up feeling when they see their parents skydiving. Did it feel like a long 10 years before you finally ended up going?
  4. What an interesting story. :) For me its something I know I want to do and at this point it will take a lot to prevent from going :)
  5. - First jump in early 1964 - 23 yrs old at the time - Wanted to make one & only one since I was 15 yrs old Jerry Baumchen how interesting seriously for me i know i want to make one jump at least but i can really see myself getting hooked on it. its been a dream since as long as i can remember.
  6. That is super mega interesting. I am 30 and I have been dreaming about it doing it for years now.
  7. So I am honestly curious how old everyone was when they made their first jump and also what made you want to jump and decide to do it. I do count tandom as a first job.
  8. also for the record i do plan to do a tandem jump for my first time but like thing is i have this feeling i will enjoy it so much i want to do a second tandem jump lol.(like i wont be planing to go solo until i have few tandem jumps under my belt)
  9. so it sounds like i may be in an interesting spot honestly i have not looked up anything yet. mostly one reason i am hesient is my french is not that great so i am worried that may be an issue. which is why i am considering a possible altrunitive but i do have a facebook friend who i know could recomend a good place to go(even though she is french)
  10. So I am honestly curious cuz i have a feeling when and if I end up doing my first jump I may end up enjoying it so much I will want to go again. My question is it it common to say I would like to go a second time in the same day. Do you have to typically book 2 in advance or can you just say I would like to jump a second time and just go on the spot(obviously if you have the money to go). Like have you ever booked twice knowing you wanted to go twice at least or know anyone who did that their first time.
  11. I apologize if I came off as brusque. Everybody's welcome here; there is no requirement to be a jumper on this forum. We mostly talk about non-jumping things in BF, anyway. Yup. No worries about it. Just be very careful about what you try to learn on here. Some of it can be very valuable and useful. Some of it... Not so much. And when you do take your FJC, do NOT under any circumstances say "But they said on DZ.com to do it this way". i plan to just rely on learning from the drop zone i end up going too. i need to figure out what kind of DZ would be good for me.
  12. There are plenty . I think it took promise5 5 years before she leaped. So what is your point? i just wanted to know if anyone else on here was in the same boat as me.

We mostly talk about non-jumping things in BF, anyway. thanks truth is i am still trying to figure when and how to get started like i wont lie i do not really have any plan i just know i want to do it but i have no idea how to get started.(plus its winter right now so i have to wait)
