    Five minutes in the tunnel and you’ll be all set, it worked for me.

    My whole life I wanted to bowl, finally I saved some money and took some lessons, it didn’t go so well and I got the skydiving speech... And here I am.

    Water Dropzone - Looks Safe

    Would you mind elaborating on the one that wasn’t?
  5. After reading your whole story, I can say one thing with certainty... Melatonin is crap.

    Buddy jumps

    So back in 82, after completing my 5 static line jumps, they took me up to 12.5 and I did a “Buddy jump” how I was able to leave linked and stay stable my first time in FF is astounding to me. Were these jumps common?

    AFF Level 1 with one instructor?

    Lodi has always used a single instructor for AFF.
  9. I did the EXACT downsize... piece of cake.

    Top 5 Tandem Scams

    My former DZ did the groupon jump for $99 to 8,000 ft. The day of the jump they would then claim they had no aircraft that could make it to 8,000 ft, and you had to upgrade to 15,000 for another $99...When all was said and done, you’d be lucky to make it to 12k...crazy but true.

    US DZ operating Skyvan or Sherpa

    Sorry, I misread. Caravan. It was just something I saw them post online and I dident read the whole article. Although Skydance does have a Skyvan during the American Boogie in June.
  12. Once on the ground, the repeated looks at his altimeter are priceless.

    Does this sound right?

    Not in the least, no radios at this DZ’s. He landed over a gentle roll in the horizon, where I knew were some pretty good size rocks and boulders. I started walking out about 10 minutes with not seeing any sign from him. I found him sitting down and smarting over a broken humerous. I called the DZ and asked for a car that made its way out a bout an hour later. The AFFI gave a very demeaning speech to all of us before the jump on Sky Van procedures, the fact that we had been jumping it for the three previous days didn’t seem to matter much. This was the first and last time I saw him, a short, cocky, dark haired Australian. Later, when I asked him why he didn’t follow thru with his student, he was all apologies and had his hat in his hands. Knowing then what I know now, I would have made more of an issue.
  15. It’s straight up woo.
