  1. This is such sad news Brad always was there with a joke or story. I remember this past Christmas when I posted a picture of my altimeter on Facebook (it's my first altimeter and I was super excited to have gotten it) Brad was there to joke me saying that back when he learned to skydive that he didn't depend on an altimeter, he knew to pull when he could read the license plates of the cars in the DZ parking lot. I mourn my friend but take some solace in know that he died doing something that he loved. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
  2. Hi Molly, When are you doing the article? The reason I ask is that I have Systemic Lupus (SLE) and chronic kidney disease stemming from damage from my Lupus. Unfortunately I am just getting started in the tunnel with one of the instructors who also will be teaching me for my AFF. If I had already started I would love to help. Have you checked out Leaps for Lupus? If not look up their web page a friend just told me about them. Good luck, Erin
  3. Trafficdriver, I plan to make the world my drop zone as well! I will most definitely hit you up if I ever make it out your way. PM me anytime or if you ever make it to Colorado.
  4. Hi Skymama, Thanks for welcoming me. I'm not using all of my college money to start skydiving. I have other money coming in its just moving from Washington to Colorado I spent a good chunk of my savings. I'm usually a pretty practical gal as well so I completely get where you are coming from. But it's something that I need to do for myself right now to put something back in to my soul after going through what I have in the past year. Take care, Erin
  5. Hi smc656, I'm actually going to be heading out to Mile Hi tomorrow afternoon to meet with the person I have been in contact with online before I moved here to get things squared away so I can hopefully have things set into place so I can start as soon as my money hits my student account. Are you going to be there by chance? I don't know anyone in Colorado yet except the guy I am divorcing. So you could say that I could use some new people here in my life. Lol I am going to be hitting up the tunnel as well, I am planning to hit the tunnel to help me get my body positioning right while I get used to the altitude change of living in Washington State around sea level to now Lakewood Colorado. My number is (removed by Skymama for your safety, please pm instead) shoot me a text if you want and we can say hi. Blue skies, Erin
  6. Hi, I have done 1 tandem years ago while on vacation, it was awesome! I am waiting on my financial aid office to release my student loan money and then I will be jumping at Mile Hi in Longmont, CO. I have been in touch with one of the people who will be instructing me and so it's all set for me to get jumping as soon as possible. Even though I am set to start jumping there I felt it would be premature of me to list them as my home drop zone. Where are you at?
  7. Hi y'all, I am new to plus just moved from Washington State to Colorado so I can be closer to my boys. I am in the process of getting a divorce and also finally realizing my life long dream of skydiving. I just wanted to say hi and see who was out there. I have not really been on chat type forums before so forgive me if I am a bit "out of the loop" so to speak. Blue skies, Erin
