  1. How many jumps is too many on an old rig? Assume that it has been taken care of, packed indoors and all.
  2. My tandem was scary because I didn't know what was going on. Now my biggest fear is that something will happen to the plane on the way up, which is why I won't get back into that thing. The lack of control would drive me crazy.
  3. Nice, looks like you had some nice weather.
  4. I've been at some DZ that rent $75 all day, which sucks if you only get one jump. And others that range from $5 to $25 per jump, it all depends on where you jump and if you have the option to go somewhere ells. Usually the rental is included in the AFF price though.
  5. My girlfriend gets a little scared when I jump, after hanging out at the DZ she feels a little better and is thinking about jumping herself. Other than getting your husband there just tell him that once you get your own gear its $20+ - a jump and less on the 4th of July.
  6. Either right before the sun gets too hot, or rite when it starts too cool down in the summer. And then there is always the blue sky winter days, as long as its above 20 degrees at altitude.
  7. Ever since I started jumping I have run into people that say they skydive. At first I think cool someone to talk too. Then as they talk it becomes clear that they have never been in a jump plane. This is a little thing I don't care about. What gets me is when I come around a corner at school and find one guy talking to about ten girls about all the "wicked" things he has done skydiving. And worst of all when I catch them taking credit for running MY club. I just love to shut them down in front of their adoring public. Dose this happen to anyone ells, or is it just me?
  8. I've been asked more times than I can count "how do you find your landing area." I tell them "we have radio beacons in our helmets of course. "
  9. We where the helmets because that is the most vulnerable part of our body in freefall. The hands and feet move and the chance of getting kicked in the gut are low unless you are freeflying. armor would just get in the way.
  10. For your first freefall it will feel windy. That is about it. You will be scared, for most of the people I have talked to about their first jump this is all they remember. good luck.
  11. It doesn't matter what side of the rain drop you hit, at a high speed it will always hurt. Think standing in a high wind rain storm
  12. All you should have to do is a recurrency jump. Once they know that you won't kill yourself they should let you jump as much as you want.
  13. My problem is that the wind is strong until I get onto final and then the wind dies out so I always end up going long. I would love to have a no wind day.
  14. My coach had to wear a 30 lb belt to keep up with me when I started. Once you learn to control your fall rate it won't be a factor, but it will be a trick you can pull out when you need it. Blu Skies
