  1. Hey, NTRPRNR- Luckily, I have a family that "trusts my judgement" and they just deal with it. What are they going to do?? Be mad at their only son?? My Mother actually jumped too, but I just never talk about it with the Dad. Everyone else in the family just thinks it's really cool that I live on the edge..or whatever! Congratulations on loving it so much! Where do you jump in NY? I'm in Jersey and I'm jumping at Crosskeys. Like the other guy said, give it time. Just be really careful and they'll get used to it as they learn to understand how much you love it! Good luck!
  2. I met Sara when I started jumping at Crosskeys in 2002. I'd spend a lot of time sitting around waiting on weather as a student and I was so enthusiastic and frustrated because I wanted to jump. Sara was awesome. Our personalities were very much alike so immediately became friends. She'd cheer in excitement when she'd see me and she'd say, "Yeah, more women skydivers!" I never saw her in a bad mood. And while we'd wait on weather we'd play around and do gymnastics together in the packing area. She was always laughing and we'd be so silly together flopping around. The vibe that she put out was so exciting and strong that I could never be in a bad mood around her. One cold day in November as a student, I landed in the swooping pond, and after a hot shower and laughing with Sara for an hour about it, I ended up with clothes that belonged to her and Darren Fisher. We would still joke about it. Sara is in my AFP graduation picture with me by the pond!! I came back to Crosskeys after being out of the state for 2 years, and she was the first person I wanted to see! We sat and talked in the beautiful May sunshine for a few hours and did our catching up, and my friend and I couldn't stop complementing her on her sexy arm muscles. That girl is a piece of work!! Sara would jump around and squeal with me once my friend was done with her tandem. It's like....no matter how great of a skydiver Sara was, she could always share the tandem excitement with those who were inexperienced. It did still excite her! She never acted like she was too good for anybody because she was a bad a**. The girl is incredible. I will forever miss her attitude and charm. After reading these posts, you understand that everyone was attracted to her in a very unique way...men and women.... Even before her death I though of her a lot because she was one of the most amazing women I've ever met. People always speak highly of a person when they die, but Sara was very different. If you didn't ever meet Sara, you really missed out on something great. One thing's for sure, anyone who met her will remember her forever because she made such an impact. Sara will certainly have a huge smile on her face when we meet her again in Heaven. I sure will miss her, and I'm so lucky to have known her! Beth Mott Nashville, TN
  3. Yonatan, I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. I am in tears. Sara was one of the most incredible, energetic women I have ever met, and I look up to her. I saw both of you when I came back to Jersey in May, and I was SO happy to see Sara! You and I got the chance to jump together, and you're both wonderful people. I cannot imagine how hard this is for you, but my heart goes out to you. What a lucky person you are for having her in your life, she really was amazing and I know she will be missed. I am so sorry, Yonatan. May time and God heal your pain....I hope to see you soon. Beth Mott "Miss Alabama"

  5. Yep, there's NOTHING like the feeling of the air when the door slides open. That's a rush like no other. You'll be spending a lot of money if you're hooked like the rest of us. Congrats on your first jump....and be safe! Beth Mott
  6. Perfect....I just ate a few boiled ones! I love the humor...
  7. Oh, and I think I have that shirt that you're wearing in your picture!!!!!!
  8. Thanks girl! I'm actually from AL and I'm headed down this weekend to see a cousin who's in from Afghanistan. I'll be in Anniston, then to Tuscaloosa. Shoot me an email at Bmott3@hotmail.com and maybe we can get together down there at some point very soon. I've got a good friend who's made one tandem in Tullahoma (during the 10 jumps that I made there last Sept/Oct) and she's wanting to do AFF, so if that's the place to go then thanks so much! Shoot me an email and maybe we can carpool, etc.
  9. I'm curious to find out where people in the Nashville area go to skydive. I haven't found anything close to home. It's beautiful weather outside and I'm ready to start skydiving again this season. Any suggestions??
  10. Hey, congrats! I remember the feeling of the first jump! I stayed on the rush of it for almost a whole day. I did get addicted, so make sure you've got the money! Everyone you know will think you're nuts, but what a different view of life you'll have once you start jumping often.
