  1. Skydive Shenandoah is a gorgeous place to jump, set in the valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Spacious landing area. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and everyone is very welcoming. Jumpers and staff all look out for each other, making it feel like a family. Large hangar to pack in with spots to sit and relax. Overall a great place to jump!
  2. If you go on Facebook and look up The Ranch, they aren't far from NYC and I know a lot commute from there. Best of luck and happy travels!
  3. I was unable to complete AFF in NJ this season due to flight restrictions at the DZ but I'll be going to Blue Ridge Skydiving Adventures in New Market, VA to jump over the winter. They operate year round with a short break around Christmas. I did my first tandem there and let me tell you, amazing people! I highly recommend you check them out for some winter jumps!
  4. I've sneezed and pulled a muscle in my neck to the point I couldn't turn it the next day. I've also pulled something in my arm trying to reach the stupid bank's drive-through tube thingy! But that's because I'm short.
  5. I'll hopefully be licensed by then and will see you there (it's basically a stones throw away from me)!
  6. A couple of years older but same here. Bonus: If you lose your cell phone in the house, use the land line to call it!
  7. No recommendations since I'm a few hours away but welcome! I recently picked where I was going to complete my AFF... Use the Dropzone locator then call to be sure they do AFF. If you can, take the day and hang out at the DZ, meet some people, and go from there! Best of luck
  8. Exactly what I needed to brighten my day... Thanks!
  9. I hope to get some tunnel time one day. When in a students progression do you recommend tunnel? Or should I wait until after I get my A license? Fingers crossed that the rumors of getting on at King of Prussia, PA are true; that's only 1.5 hours from me! I'm not sure the flight school would agree with that but sounds like a great idea to me! Two birds, one stone - right?
  10. Thanks for the info, Tom. My tandem was fun (of course) although I was expecting a training tandem - which is what I did in Virginia last week. However, they wanted to me to do a fun tandem since that's "the course plan they have set up for me". There is another DZ about 75 minutes drive time from my house. I'm tempted to give them a try, although continuing tandems at random locations is going to drain my bank account before AFF even starts! Unfortunately, flying isn't an option yet since I am still a student pilot. Plus a plane rental and fuel once I have my license adds up quickly - especially on top of AFF. I'm hoping one of the closer locations works out! I also plan on doing some of my AFF jumps in Virginia where I did my first tandem since everyone there was amazing, so I'm glad I didn't buy any package. Thanks again
  11. I'm wondering if I made a mistake in the school I picked... The first impression hasn't been great. The hangar is across the active so when you park, you call and they come to get you. According to their website, they also check for jumpers approximately every five minutes. I - as well as another person here for a tandem - have been waiting in the parking lot for 55 minutes. I understand patience is needed but this is getting a little ridiculous. I'm going to be paying them $2,600.00+, is this how it will be every time? Today is tandem one of the three they require... It's not too late to switch if I have to. Thoughts?
  12. Did you see the vlog of his confession? http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/sam-rader-admits-he-had-ashley-madison-subscription-2015228 Is it just me or is his wife on something? I'm also pretty sure she has a gun to his back.
