    Skydive The Farm

    So up in the cold north, its cold- so my girlfriend and I migrated south for the weekend to jump. I went through a lot of websites and reviews thanks to finally settling on The Farm. I was not let down, infact more impressed and having more fun than I could have planned. Did all of the AFF levels on one weekend with awesome instructors, the most affordable program in the COUNTRY, and great weather (yes they control that too)! My girlfriend did her second- and favorite tandem jump. She too, absolutely loved the whole weekend. Instructors (both AFF and tandem) are safe, thorough, and are always keeping things fun and exciting. The DZ is easy to spot from above with many outs, though the weather was so tame you probably wont need them. Go for a day- or stay the whole weekend like I did. Unmatched safety, hospitality, and fun. It's easy to get to from Atlanta and the airport- no kidding all you have to do is follow ONE highway all the way there! (The road changes names and numbers but you just stay on it and you'll be there in no time.) No cons really, but you definitely want to bring some grub just incase- no worries as just down the street there are plenty of options (Cowboys has tasty breakfast sandwiches and Zorbas has tasty everything.) There is also a short 3 minute? bus ride which is actually a good time to meet people or catch up. Lastly cost, real kudos to the DZ for prices that reflect a love for the sport over a love for money. Great place!
  2. I think its the butterflies that make it what it is. Enjoy them while they last, after a few hundred more you're gonna want to jump off the Hoover dam to find those fuzzies! Blue Skies- Yellow Mustard
  3. So hey I'm in Iraq, and returning around October time frame... (hopefully) or Early Nov at worse case. It will be getting chilly up in New England where I'm from by that time... If I'm able, I'm gonna squeeze in (freeze in) a few jumps up there, its my home dz after all.. and then start my great adventure, pilgrimage, wandering... south into the warmth I've grown accustomed to by then.. heheh. Florida seems a given, cooler but still warm during our 'wintry' months.. but how will the weather be in the middle states on the way there. i recall VA being maybe white maybe not, right around Christmastime. I'd like to jump my way down, since I think the road trip will do me some good. Any advice on conditions from your state or what you've seen? Thanks!
  4. oh absolutely... just gotta be able to combat take-off & land that Otter. which is quite the ride for all inside. gotta get outta missle range ya know? we had a short flight on a C130 over here, I was all pretending to hook up my static line.. giving a few shoots "STATIC LINEEEE!!" but the ground lovin' Marines in my unit were not amused. cant imagine why!

  5. hey everyone, just dropping ya'll a line from Iraq. I'm over here tossing candy to kids with the Marine Corps (no, like for real, we do) weather's great, when its not sandstorming. of course havent had much time for jumping here, but I plan to hit it like an addict on my return. this cold turkey aint cool man.
