    Head down tips

    Any tips you get now might conflict with input from your coach. Rather go on the next camp with a fresh, open mind and trust in your coach.

    Best USA DZ for long term visit from UK

    Another vote for Eloy. I live in the UK and have jumped in California, Arizona and Florida and based on your requirements my opinion is Eloy is your best bet. I've made 9 trips there and it is by far my preference if you want to jump hard. You can get a direct flight to Phoenix from Heathrow, there is a friendly affordable shuttle service (Tammy Arrowsmith) - for a small surchare she will stop at Walmart so you can get your supplies en-route to the DZ (bunkhouse has fridge/freezers and a microwave). And a small tip, if you don't have any go get some earplugs at the tunnel because you could have someone like me sleepin in a bunk near you... Will PS you will have a great time at most warmer winter US dropzones, don't let us bias you, but once you've decided on Eloy PM me if you want some money saving tips on flights etc.

    Totally agree, that is pretty lame.

    3:10 to Eloy - Is my math off?

    This is true for Airspeed not Arsenal, Arsenal are still charging $950/hr.
  7. Hi Matt You can bring goods worth up to £320 back to the UK (or anywhere in the EU for that matter) from the US. So if they didn't buy anything else (tobacco and alcohol are excluded) then VAT and import duties wouldn't be applied. Will

    UKS Boogie September

    Catch a train from Waterloo to Honiton. Honiton is about 7 miles from the DZ and hopefully some nice person will come pick you up. Train journey time is about 3 hours, driving takes pretty much the same or longer. A good site to buy your tickets : www.thetrainline.com

    Skydive Arizona

    And then there's all those people with 10 000+ jumps giving you tips and advice so your flying improves whether you like it or not. And that free beer truck at the boogie, that sucks too. And unless you are OK with landing on flat obstacle free surfaces you won't like the outs either.

    Cat (Feline) in Wind Tunnel

    Why doesn't he make friends with someone who owns a couple horses? They ride up, he flies down and the friend rides back leading the other horse. Hell, he could probably charge paragliders for the taxi service - great way to combine two fun activities.

    I am good, I've stopped drinking for a bit but I still treasure my NASA shot glass.

    W tunnel invitations

    I have only flown in the 12' Moscow W/tunnel but you now have the larger tunnels as well. The pricing is very competitive too, better than you might get anywhere else.

    Mel Gibson...The Dude Makes good movies.

    As Frankie Boyle the Scottish comedian said : No one believed that Braveheart star Mel Gibson could carry off being a Scot but look at him now, "an alcoholic and a racist".
