    Thought I'd introduce myself!

    Welcome to the board and congratulations for making plans to make your first jump! Im assuming by NoVA you mean northern virginia. I was stationed in norfolk for 4 1/2 crappy years. Anyways i will be the first to warn you that this sport is HIGHLY addictive. If you really NEED to jump then you have the attitude of a future jumper. I didnt my first jump out of state( i live in florida). Upon returning to florida i started AFF the following weekend! Had to take a break but im back in the sport as of february. I wish you luck and welcome to the skies!

    im new

    Welcome to the board! Just a tidbit of advice....it helps to fill out your profile so everyone knows where youa re located at and what not. Are you doing a tandem first or are you going straight into a student program? Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

    Buying a complete rig abroad

    Caution:low jump numbers here. the classifieds on dz.com are hit and miss. Ive been on the lookout for another reserve and a jumpsuit also. Of all the adds ive replied to i may have recieved 5% of responces back from them. Its gotten to the point of if its an older add....the chances are very high that the item has already been sold...and the add was not taken down...which has been the case with a few of the adds that i answered. If you dont get any hits on the classifieds check out your local dz(s). There is almost always gear for sale by jumpers that just have extra stuff laying around but never put adds up to sell it. They jsut wait for someone to come around asking for stuff. Give it a shot...ya never know till ya try!

    I'm going to say this one is a reporter out to seek negativity...or to start it.

    haha...i didnt think you were going to join the forum..LOL. Anyways yes this is a close friend of mine. Im going to get him up in a tandem..and hopefully he gets as hooked as i do. He is right though..he does possess alot of skills. He is very mechanically inclined, and he can build a computer blindfolded with both arms tied behind his back...lol. a little overly dramatic..but yeah. he is good people and hopefully a future full time skydiver
