    Wherer to stay in SF-bay.....?

    I assume you will have an auto. It is about 140-160 kilometers between Lodi and the tunnel. All the towns you mention will have accommodations like you describe. If you can afford it I would check into the Marriott Residence Inns. It is a hotel but has rooms with a full kitchen as well as having a Gym and Pool. I jump at Lodi and live about 40 kilometers from the tunnel, feel free to PM me and give me more details about when you are planning to come, budget and preferences. You can also call the Parachute center http://parachutecenter.com/ and ask to speak with Bill or Cathy, they will be happy to help you.

    Cohiba Robustos seem to work the best. Make sure you get a real Cuban one though, the Honduran ones don't seem to work as well

    Helmet Cleaning

    take out the lining, wash cold with woolite, dry in shade, replace.
  14. I like the Z1, the faceshield locking mechanism on the Oxy is funky and the shields are hard to replace.
  15. What the heck are you talking about? A weight belt?

    Bandit jumping?

    Why don't you instead get some more experience and let this thread which contains incriminating evidence die for a while before you try it.
  17. Gators cost about $25, you'll spend a LOT more in the tunnel to get the same effect ;) Slow suit, good idea, dosen't have the stigma attached to it that a sweatshirt does and it's cooler in the summer. Don't think the helmet will get you much for the $$. Skills help too, in another couple thousand jumps the suit won't matter as much

    Chest Rings

    Some rigs have "articulated" chest straps that are sewn around rings that are attached to the main lift web.
