  1. I always tip. Not because I feel like I have to but because I want to.
  2. I actually feel a lot better today. Thanks everyone.
  3. Oh my, 6 beers and I wouldn't even be able to tell you where my shins are....I'll try the deep heat, golf ball and maybe one beer. Thanks!
  4. Good to know. I've never had problems with my shins in the past and I'm not a runner so you're probably right. Thanks.
  5. I think I got shin splints from landing the other day. Think that's possible? Has it happened to anyone else? It felt like I landed a little harder and faster than normal but I only had to run it out a few steps. Never had them before but man is it uncomfortable!! 3 days later and I'm still feeling it. I wonder what I did wrong.
  6. I don't think I would have done my 1st jump without a radio. It wasn't like my instructor had to use it much but just knowing it was there, eased my anxiety. I have no shame in using it or admitting that I used one for my first 8 jumps. I learn better when I'm corrected as I'm making the mistake.
  7. Sorry, I meant collapse the slider.
  8. I'm not going to try it. I'm just curious.....What is the purpose of tying the slider after you open?
  9. Me too-I'm ALWAYS the last one to land. It's funny....The other day a guy on the same load as me, jumped after me, had already repacked by the time I made it down! I couldn't believe it. I don't mind being last though. It's probably best for everyone involved.
  10. I started in the tunnel just before my AFF and continued through out it. The instructor had me doing pretend altitude checks, wave and pulls every time. After reading that, I'm so glad she did.
  11. My chest muscles (below the collarbone) are always sore after I spend time in the wind tunnel. I thought it was just me because I asked a few people and they said it didn't bother them at all.
  12. Is that the normal exit for that type of plane?
  13. I experience way more fear on my landings than the plane ride or the free fall. I'm a little nervous on the way up but I kind of like that feeling. I love the exit. That's my favorite!
  14. I felt the same way on my 1st tandem. I think I was thinking about breathing too much. I seriously thought I was going to pass out. My next jump I tried tilting my head back I was looking up, and it helped. It also helps me to be more stable at pull time when I do that as well.
