  1. Prodded, asked questions and disected the first waiver(Tandem) Waivers after that...you get the jist of what the paragraphs are about...If you trust the DZ and the staff...just sign it. I'm not usually into the whole 3-way thing, but you got me a little excited with that. - Skymama BTR #1 / OTB^5 Official #2 / Hellfish #408 / VSCR #108/Tortuga/Orfun
  2. Those of us that have S.O.'s or kids constantly have this conversation. I aggree Dave. It is a very serious topic and should not be treated lightheartedly. I have only been in the sport for 8 months...As much as I would already like to, I just don't have the insight that can only be gained with experience. But I assure you, I take this very seriously. I would hate to be put in a position where I had to make a choice. I really want to avoid that if I can. Someone told her, once, that the only way that she was going to understand what it's really all about would be for her to do it. I'm not going to hold my breath on that one. I do think, one day, I'll be able to include either one or both of them in my little hobby. I can't wait until that happens. Then I can share the joy that I feel when I am flying.

  3. I'm pretty sure that this has been brought up before...But I am going to err on the side of reiterating the obvious: Hangin' out at the DZ is not much fun for alot of our significant others. So, my curiosity is: How do you deal with it... Personally, I had to strike a deal...But I get out there Friday night (The DZ usually gets all together and goes somewhere, like Chili's or the local pool bar, she likes to go then), and Saturday all day, and again we usually get all together and go somewhere. If Saturday is bad weather, then I change it out for Sunday. I wonder, sometimes, if I could survive if I had to cut back any more.

  4. Cool suit Dave... I like the steve attachment... Is that a standard option? I'm not usually into the whole 3-way thing, but you got me a little excited with that. - Skymama BTR #1 / OTB^5 Official #2 / Hellfish #408 / VSCR #108/Tortuga/Orfun
  5. I answered with "they make it clear that...." But it's more complicated than that. My mom makes it clear that she will never like it, but my Dad, he seems to at least try to understand.(although the vibe I get from him is never really good.) He did come out to watch once, but like most whuffos, he was "bored." Granted, Skydiving is not really a spectator sport, but the last few minutes can be pretty eventful. (I've seen my landings) My grandfather, he just thinks that if it makes me happy, then do it. Just don't come crawling, or hobbling to me if you get hurt. Then...there's my grandmother...60 something, she's done her third tandem, and is considering tandem progression. She puts a little money away in her DZ account now and then, I think she has the money together for a fourth tandem She gets almost as exited about me jumping as I do, sometimes even more...she's so great. I think she's going to do her fourth during the "Summer Jam" the 20th of this month at Skydive Aggieland. As well as volenteering to help around the DZ. So as you can see, it's a little mixed in the opinion area.

  6. Well...What do they look like? Can you post a pic? Can we order them before hand? Inquiring readers need to know... I'm not usually into the whole 3-way thing, but you got me a little excited with that. - Skymama BTR #1 / OTB^5 Official #2 / Hellfish #408 / VSCR #108/Tortuga/Orfun
  7. [Bad joke mode] Ooooh....let's not say crash...ok...[/Bad Joke Mode Off] There are going to be a couple of spots open where I am staying as well. Don't know how many yet, But there are three as of now. I'm not usually into the whole 3-way thing, but you got me a little excited with that. - Skymama BTR #1 / OTB^5 Official #2 / Hellfish #408 / VSCR #108/Tortuga/Orfun
  8. Unfortunately it is true...and I am also sorry to say that the rest of the world has landed on our band waggon. I just hope that the rest of the world doesn't hurt them selves as bad as the french when they try to jump on at the last minute.

  9. What the newspaper doesn't mention is that the guy was sitting right-seat, and exited through the right cockpit door after the pilot had shut down the engines. *** The article never mentioned the type of aircraft it was. I mean to say, it would be pretty stupid if it was a 182, and he still was prop struck.

  10. More info found out... Free fly record attemp is happening that weekend. Me thinks it's the Texas free fly record, but again I could be wrong... Man, I hope my rig is in and reserve is packed by then!!! I really need to pay beer for that!!

  11. Houston Intercontinental is about an hour and 45 minutes from the dz.But there are some people that live in that area that will be coming up this way. If you have seen "Pop" posting here...He might know Some people that would be coming from Houston. Vacation was just stamped approved ...WHoooop! I'm not usually into the whole 3-way thing, but you got me a little excited with that. - Skymama BTR #1 / OTB^5 Official #2 / Hellfish #408 / VSCR #108/Tortuga/Orfun

  13. I have also heard that the Sugar Gliderz will be at Skydive Aggieland around the 20th of June...I don't see "Alot" about the apearance, but from what I hear they will be doing coaching as well.
