  1. 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?
  2. 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!
  3. Welcome to the world of skydiving! Nice little DZ, I did a few jumps at Jerry's Skydiving Circus a few years back!
  4. 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!
  5. I am also a Suffolk jumper......see you around sometime!
  6. I am also a Virginia jumper! This sport is like nothing else! What dz are you planning on doing your first jump?
  7. Off topic......but Jerry's Skydiving Circus is a blast! I did not aim for the pea pit!
  8. Welcome to the sport! I have done a few jumps in Raeford and love it there! Have fun and Blue Skies!
  9. 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!
  10. http://www.balloonskydive.com/ Try this site! Looks like they are operating there and seem to have jumps scheduled every weekend. Enjoy! My one and only balloon jump was in CA!
  11. Welcome to the forums and this amazing sport! I see you jump at Blue Ridge......been thinking about making a visit there sometime this fall!
  12. Just a coach with a GoPro on! Enjoy!
  13. You picked a great place to jump! Skydive Monroe ROCKS! Congrats and continue to jump safely!
  14. http://shop.wscr.org Is this what you are looking for? Skydive Suffolk just had a group of ladies earn theirs this weekend!
  15. There is no reason that you should NOT go to another dz. I encourage students to jump with different people......different instructors teach things differently. Most people would be happy to have a dz open on the weekdays and a closer one on the weekends! Where are you located?
  16. I did my first tandem at 35 started AFF at 36! 42 now and almost 500 jumps! It has been a fun ride!
  17. Welcome to the forum and to the sky! The weather is warming up and it is almost time for some weekly skydiving!
  18. The bad thing is that they told you that your business didn't matter because you WILL be back. Like you didn't have a choice. I would go somewhere else if you had another DZ. The real problem will come in when you have to repeat a level because your were not current.
  19. Thanks for the feedback. Squeak, I guess my main question was the justification of having the GoPro 3 white if I already owned a GoPro2. Anyway, I returned the GoPro 3 white edition for the GoPro 3 black edition. Any pointers on setting would help.
  20. Thanks! Exactly the kind of answer I was looking for! Merry Christmas!
  21. I just received the GoPro 3 White edition but currently own the GoPro 2. Can anyone tell me the specific advantages of owning and using the GoPro 3 versus the GoPro 2? I see what the Black edition has to offer but wondering about the White edition. Anyone see better quality with the White edition over the GoPro 2? Thanks for your help.
  22. I have not found a DZ in Maryland that allows fun jumpers.
  23. There is a guy out there named Will! If you see him, tell him Mama Cass says hello! Have fun and enjoy this sport!
  24. Georgia is a beautiful place to jump! I have jumped at a few there! Welcome to the sky! Where are you doing your training?
