    Any other twins?

    Am I the first twin to reply? (I didn't read the entire thread) I have a twin brother! We are very close but live very different lives! I live in the country and wouldn't have it any other way......he lives in the heart of San Fransisco! I have been married for 22 years with two daughters.....he just celebrated his first anniversary and has no desire to have children at all! I started skydiving 10 years ago and he thinks I'm nuts!
  2. As the subject says, I am looking for a place to jump close to San Fransico that I can bring a couple tandems to as well as fun jump. I would love to hit up a balloon but not sure where to find one that I could also fun jump at once the balloon jump is done. So, where's the best place to go?

    Funny Skydiving Nicknames

    A few years ago a guy on his CAT A has a cutaway over the Peanut Festival in VA. The main landed behind the tents and police surrounded it stating there was a "body" under the canopy. After convincing them that the skydiver landed safely under his reserve canopy back at the dz they sent the news crew over to interview him.....his nickname...Peanut!

    Training Gap-related questions

    Definitely do some jumps in Suffolk. I am a regular there and have been for 8 years! The staff is fantastic and very willing to train you in between your trips to Florida. You're pretty lucky that you get to travel to Florida for jumping during the winter! Have fun and hope to see you around!

    What is the matter with their parents?

    My daughter wears flip flops all year long......we are in VA and we do get a bit cold here. The bus driver mentioned to her one day that she will get frost bite....... My thought.....she is 14 and capable of watching the weather and choosing her clothes. I would prefer to tell her what is appropriate clothing (I don't want to see your bra through your shirt or butt cheek hanging out) rather then if she wears shorts or long pants. She is old enough to tell if she is cold or hot and will dress to keep herself comfortable. Schools are controlled but downtown offices and are usually very hot or cold....we don't go to school with them so they are the ones that know what is comfortable to wear. It really has nothing to do with how cool it is. She is never sick and never had frostbite! It's all good!

    How to disarm the doomsayers?

    I do have an issue with sitting on the couch all day long watching the world spin! You can hound them about that! But, seriously, it won't last forever. I got some slack because I started when my kids were young. Most of my "friends" I had before I started jumping are not "friends" anymore. My real friends, out of respect for them, talk about other stuff! It works out in the end!
