    Adrenaline vs. Freedom

    I think I miss everything about it when I can't jump. But the one on your list that I have missed most when I've been unable to jump for any extended period of time is the camaraderie on the plane. There's just something about that knowing look in a friends eyes and the secret skydivers handshake before we all step out into the wild blue yonder. Will it be another successful jump or will it be the last interaction I'll ever have with that person? Usually it is the former but it has been the latter before. That last moment before we all do what we do knowing the risks and the rewards is one of the few truly honest human interactions I have in life. That or it's the beer. Actually, it's probably the beer...

    How many jumps do you need...

    It’s totally at the discretion of the TM; if they let you at all. Most that I know want a solid 500 jumps. But I've known a few to go lower.

    Sunpaths customer service?

    There is a magic number you can call where they can tell you! Try it (910) 875-9002
  5. Hmm, so what you're saying is that me and 7 of my friends had the honor of being the last to do it until you guys pulled it off last year.

    Arizona DZ Q's

    Call both DZ's and talk to them about what you are actually geting with each package and also what additional training you will need to get an A license. Just a quick scan of the web sites shows that you are NOT "basically getting the same thing". The number of jumps is different, the AZ program includes wind tunnel time, etc.

    Dallas powerline landing

    He is fine. It is thought that he wasn’t actually shocked, simply that the power lines “buzzed” when he hit them and the local witnesses presumed he had been shocked. He was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure and released upon arrival.

    Cypres 2 Ground Fire.

    Maybe the thread should read, "Cypres 2 fails self test and skydivers jump anyway and have misfire"...

    My First AFF

    As an instructor I'll give you one piece of advice. Listen and learn from your instructors in person, not from strangers on the internet! Instructors are busy with multiple students so hang around and talk to them after hours if you want more info than you got in your debrief. That said, nice job!

    Manufacturer Support of Fundraising Efforts

    So, it sounds like you didn't have good communication set up with the person at the company that committed to the event. Do you think part of the fault rests with you for poorly organizing with and communicating with the company's rep? If so is your question even valid?

    good rig??

    It's not a question of if it's a good rig, it's a question of is it a good rig for you. Is the WL approperiate for your skill level, how is the fit of the harness, etc.?

    Jumping with shades.

    I won't jump with someone wearing shades. I cant see their eyes which is the primary form a communication in freefall. i do rw but I know free flyers have a different opinion.
