    Lake Charles, LA

    There is one listed in Beaumont Texas, but I am not sure if it is still open. I go to Gold Coast Skdivers in Moss Point Mississippi. It is great. There is also one in Houston, Texas. I was told that the one in Lafayette is closed. http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/dropzone/finder.cgi You can put your address in here and find the closest dropzones. I would still call them to make sure they are still open. The DZ list gets stale

    Slowing down in a Sit

    I was told to spread your legs out to the side at the knee joints. I tried it , and you can really feel the wind resistance that makes.

    Visting an old subject

    As long as the TI is not about to set up shop every weekend, or take money away from the resident TI who cares, you are just another jumper in a way.
  7. Sadly about that time for my custom color Spectre

    Aff level 3 ?'s help me relax!

    On the way up and right at the door take deep breaths. It oxygnates the blood stream and triggers your body to relax.
  9. Cool idea except the part about securing what looked like a 250$ neptune altimeter to your hand with velcro. If you find another way like using the screws that are supplied with the unit might be a good way to go.

    MC-4 rigging

    I have had mine repacked, and have seen one packed for many years. I understand it that they do not have a TSO, but are covered due to the military rating, and I forget what letters it is like ANSO or something. Edit you might see what what I am talking about in the picture I have of my old rig.. I am not really sure what all that means.

    Newbie question

    well first thing you need to do is save up money, or get a good credit card lol joking. If you have a dropzone already in mind, just sign up for the first jump course that will explain alot of questions you have. For your first and following jumps you will most likley have a radio in you helmet where a instructor will talk to you and guide you down until you learn how to steer and flare properly. As far as gear goes it is all in how much money you have. This falls back to the credit card thing. You can go all out and spend over $7,000 on all the gear from head to toe, or you can look used and get away for around $1,500-2000. The bigest thing to worry about now is going through the course being safe and having fun. Worry abotu gear later when you are sure skydiving is really what you want to do.
