im not necessarily anti logbooks, i can see the importance of one when traveling to a new dz. but this was my home dropzone! it was a 5 year absence but the person i spoke to at the dz over the phone several times remembered me, i know severel well known jumpers at the dz that can vouch for me, all of whom now have thousands of skydives with instructor ratings. not to mention 15+ of my jumps on video, freeflying, hybrids, even some of my aff coaching jumps. but it always came back to the missing logbook and thats no good according to this person i spoke to. maybe its just my paranoia seeping in but it almost just seems like its a money issue, ive been uncurrent this long so i have to pay, literally, to get back in. my first jump back was completely awesome though!
