    My heart is broken. Gary was a stand-up guy, on and off the drop zone.

    New to Washington DC area, looking for dropzone!

    When I went to visit my sister in Bethesda a couple of years ago, I visited Skydive Orange and had a blast. I do not know what I enjoyed more, the jumping or the party. Certainly check them out.... ~Anne I'm a Doll!!!!
  3. Nope....I jumped demo gear once. And only once. I was demo-ing the container and had the hardest opening of my life. Broke multiple lines...it was there but it was not square. Had to chop. I am just happy that hard opening did not injure me. I will always have a rigger I trust or myself check the gear and repack it before I jump it. ~Anne I'm a Doll!!!!

    price of skydiving

    It is not about the price.... I am a teacher....made about $35,000 a year when I started jumping. And I have a mortgage payment.... It is about how you choose to spend your money. I stopped eating out as much...stopped shopping for clothes as much...stopped drinking in bars with my friends as much.... It is a series of choices that landed me with a license and my own gear. And no regrets. ~Anne I'm a Doll!!!!

    ProTrack and ProTec

    I have a ProTrack inside my Protec....my data may not be perfect...but it logs the jumps, gives me speeds, freefall times...all the data i need...and I know I am not going to lose the ProTrack....it is secure in there! ~Anne I'm a Doll!!!!

    What's the worst malfunction?

    I voted horseshoe also.....having something wrap around part of me that I can't clear.....that scares me. But I also agree with the premature deployment thought...and most of the others here, too! ~Anne I'm a Doll!!!!

    Pilot Chute In Tow

    I like the idea of Procedure #3, although I would point out (maybe the obvious) that you try once...and then go to Procedure #1 or #2...you are losing altitude fast at this point! ~Anne I'm a Doll!!!!

    Your Skydiving Goals for 2005?

    Well...I have not jumped a whole lot in the past two years....and I am honeymooning at Rantoul....so... I want to jump my ass off this spring and summer so I can be a crazy jumper at WFFC. I want to kiss my new husband in freefall at the WFFC. I want to finally get a new canopy.....so I can sell this one back to the previous owner. I want to have a blast and be safe. ~Anne I'm a Doll!!!!

    New Skydiving Magazine

    Don't tease me....we still haven't gotten ours yet.....darn it!!!! ~Anne I'm a Doll!!!!
  13. I can't give you the motivation. It has to come from yourself. I was at 275 jumps, with only 10 of those in the past two years. I thought seriously about selling all my gear and just not jumping anymore. The thought of that scared the shit out of me. I could not imagine not ever flying again. And that was my answer. Whatever was keeping me from the sky...time, money, a new family...dz politics...whatever...did not beat out my desire to fly again...so I made a recurrence jump last Saturday and I am jumping again the Saturday.... I think you just have to listen to yourself and accept that skydiving may be a chapter that is voer for you...at least for now...and that is ok. Don't stay in the sport because you think you should. ~Anne I'm a Doll!!!!
