  1. I'm going to be in Fairford for a few days (about 30 minutes to an hour west from London what I am told) and was wondering if anyone had any good or bad things to say about the DZ's in the area. The DZ locater says there is like 5 within 50 miles from where I will be. Just trying to figure out which might be my best bet as far as vibe/people to jump with. Only have one day I can jump so can't check out more than one. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!! "I love 'lamp'." -SKYMAMA
  2. As people have already said, everyone will have favorites for different reasons. I have not jumped at all the DZ's in Florida, but of the ones I have my home away from home is Palatka. Can't say enough good things about the place, the vibe, the people, and the DZO, Art, is one of the best all around and genuine guys I know. "I love 'lamp'." -SKYMAMA
  3. WOW! Talk about misinformed. Palatka, Tandem Factory? HAHAHAHAHAHA Friendliest and best all around DZ in Florida. Not downing others (there are a few others i enjoy) some offer certain things that others dont, all have their ups and downs, but none have a better vibe, and friendlier group of people than Palatka.

  4. I vote not! Been looking forward to it. Can't wait. "I love 'lamp'." -SKYMAMA
  5. Awesome thank you very much for your response!! I really appreciate it. BS "I love 'lamp'." -SKYMAMA
  6. Hello Everyone! I did a search in the forums for dropzones in Italy, and they all seem far from where I am going. I have never been to Italy but it seems I am going to get the chance next month. I am in the Navy and In Iraq right now but next month going to Sigonella in Sicily. Any and all help regarding location and facilities/equipment available (as I don't have my rig with me) is appreciated greatly!! BS "I love 'lamp'." -SKYMAMA

  13. Just wanted to say thanks, to everyone at Skydive Palatka for the last year and a half of wonderful and priceless memories. My only regret is to have to leave.

Today (thursday) was SUPPOSED to rain in the AM then like 40% chance in the afternoon but no rain AT ALL and we flew constant.
