  1. So, I ended up doing the tunnel time in Vegas. I must say it was a great experience and I had lots of fun. The staff was great and Kate was a great coach and took care of me the whole time I was at Flyaway. I would recommend it to any new jumpers that are considering tunnel time. Thanks JT for hooking me up. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  2. I just did some flights in a tunnel for the first time this past Monday. I did five, three minute coached flights with video. I feel it benifited me tremendously. When I jump this weekend I have a feeling I will perform much better then I have. Had I not gotten all the coaching, my time in the tunnel would have been much more difficult and not as much fun.

  3. Thanks Doug, I look forward to doing some time in the tunnel. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  4. I also had a line over on jump #20, which was a 3,500 hop and pop. Tried pumping the breaks which did not help. Not a lot of time though so I chopped at 2100. All ended well and I was glad to get my first one out of the way. Gave me confidence that I could handle the situation without freaking out. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  5. Thanks for the info again. I will give him a call. I do not mind doing a few solo jumps, as long as I'm jumping. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  6. Unfortunately, I will arrive on the 8th(Sun) leave on the 11th(Wed). I have a question maybe you can answer jtval. I looked at Mesquites web site and it said that anything other then a weekend you had to call for an appointment or something to that effect. Does that mean that usually it is not open on the weekdays unless there is a large group coming out? I will not be able to make it out on a weekend, so if that is the case I will not be able to jump.

  7. I will look into going to Mesquite. Hopefully the wives conference will last longer then it should so I will have more time in the tunnel and to skydive. HEHE SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  8. Thanks for the info, I will definitely be going their and hopefully getting a little coaching time.
  9. I'm going to Las Vegas in a couple of weeks with the wife on a business trip. All business for her and all play for me. I have no tunnel time but was thinking of doing it while I was there since it is close. I was looking at the web site and noticed that everybody had extremely baggy suits on. I guess this is because the tunnel does not produce the amount of wind that the newer tunnels do. Is my guess right and if so, would this still be a good tool to increase my skill in the air? Any input would be great. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  10. I had a malfunction on Jump #20. It was during my 3,500 Hop and Pop of all things. I did my emergency procedures like I was trained from day one and everything turned out just fine. In fact, my landing was the most accurate and soft one I had up to that date. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  11. I just recently got into skydiving and find my self bringing my BLS bag with me most of the time. I'm currently a medic in training and agree with some of the others that I will only provide BLS services. In sue happy California the laws are not so forgiving. Running a bolus line is more then a hand slap, it will get your license revoked. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  12. I wear Vans for other reasons. In a nut shell because my wife buys them for me because I hate shopping for clothes. So I get what she buys me. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  13. Exactly what Beerlight said. I have been in a high altitude chamber a few times at Beale AFB. They teach exactly what he was talking about. As far as your left ear taking up to a day to clear, they also say that is normal for some people. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
  14. Skydance is probably closer to you then Lodi. I jump at Skydance and have had great experiences . Several people that jump at Skydance also jump at Lodi. I have never jumped at Lodi so I do not know anything about it. I think Lodi is open seven days a week and Skydance is Wed through Sun, unless it is a four day weekend or something like that.

  15. Thanks, I can not wait for that to open. SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP
