  1. Hello all, I am posting to see if anyone wants to meet in Byron, Lodi, or Hollister this Saturday? I'm not brand new to, but mostly lurk. I live in San Jose and can pickup to drive and meet if needed. I am a newbie, and a bigboy, so if you want to test your flying skills, let me know. Matthew
  2. Hi, nice interesting post, thanks. I'm still new, but I pull at 4000 and my hard deck is 2500. I like the "number" for me, to take the thinking out of it. If I think about it too long, i'm too low. I can definitely see myself fighting a Mal too low and my reserve coming out. Those two numbers might drop lower when I get A LOT more jumps, for now, I'm happy. Cypress 2 RSL

    San Jose here, checking in. We're pretty well represented. Good to know. Matthew
  4. Pardon my newbie ignorance, but what's a Shadow Dive? I'm thinking some sort or recurrency jump with an instructor. Thanks.
  5. Cowboy, Good to see your post, I am an Okie, currently in California. I know that don't help you much now, but....I will be in Oklahoma soon for Vacation and plan on jumping in Skiatook. Matthew
  6. Being a student, like myself, your rig should have an RSL which by the time you pull the handle via your training, your reserve is probably already out. our emergency training says pull the handle anyway RSL or no. Just remember and practice the way you were trained. I was trained to cut away and pull with no delay.
  7. Oh man, I wish I would have known the rules earlier, I owe at least 3 cases now.
  8. Hi, I enjoyed your post, I'm still new, so when I'm ready I will try your RPS game. How about trying the Thumb Wrestling game? They can go either fast or slow and might challenge your stability too. just my 2 cents.
  9. LOL, thanks for the input, I can't sing though. If i did and the USPA got wind of it, they wouldn't grant me my A licensce when the time came. Something about reckless endangerment or environmental damage issues.
  10. Probably not good for the freefall, but the Canopy ride after maybe. I am a newbie so I will wait a long while. But someday during a high pull sunset ride under my canopy....Wagner's "Ride of the Valkeryes"
  11. Welcome to the group and congrats on finishing your AFF. Hope for better weather for you. Matthew
  12. Hmmmm, good point. I'm sure we crossed paths, but didn't get introduced to each other. If I would have met you I would have mentioned I will be there again on the 10th weather permitting. Matthew
  13. Hi all, without getting into specifics, I have a second, part time job that pays for my jumps. still relatively new at the sport but so far it works for me. I work my second job 2 nights per week and every other weekend. when I work on Sunday, I'm scheduled 5-9pm, jump in the morning to afternoon then drive back for work. The hard part is working after my jumps. hard to focus, but the drive back allows for decompress time. Matthew
