I started jumping 2 years ago at another dropzone, but SDLI was close by, and this year I spent 90% of my jump time there. The guys and gals at SDLI are great and are always willing to help you out or go up for some RW. I have definately made some friends at SDLI and can't wait until spring comes. There is also a lot of variety in jumpships. This summer alone I jumped out of a Porter, a 207, a Grand Caravan, a skyvan, and got a Helicopter jump in too. It is a great place to take newbies or to take Skygods. The sunset loads with ocean and long Island sound views can't be beat.
