  1. Hey hookitt, thanks for not mincing words! I like your attitude about these, "traditions". Just so happens I like brewing, collecting and drinking beer so it didn't take much arm twisting for me to bring some in. I'll plan on bringing more when I get my "first" jump on my A license!
  2. LOL, thanks. Beer is in the 'fridge and I'm bringing it to the DZ tomorrow. I didn't realize this was the tradition but apparently it's pretty standard!
  3. Finished my last jump with my instructor Jackson at Skydance and got to jump solo today, my 8th jump ever. Did a diving exit, flip, turns and tracking. Couldn't believe how slow the altitude passed, felt like forever and I actually pulled 1000 ft earlier than on my AFF so I could do some extra drills under canopy. FUN!
  4. I did my last AFF jump and my first solo "student status" jump today. My 7th and 8th. In a perfect world I would say spend a day on your 1st, then the next day do your 2nd and 3rd, next day 4th, 5th, next day 6th, 7th. You get the idea. After your first jump you will have a pretty good idea what you are dealing with and you will be able to decide for yourself if the above progression is right for you. Talk to your instructor, you might be able to show all the required skills in less than 7 jumps, might take more, everyone seems to be different. Lemme know how it goes!
  5. Agreed, I LOL'd. Welcome to the forum man, keep us apprised of your training and send me a PM if you ever want to jump in NorCal.
  6. Welcome, your bud sounds like an amazing resource, let us know how your training goes!
  7. You're going to be so effin' pumped when you get to jump! let us know how it goes.
  8. Get your A. I'm on my way to mine. My wife and I conveniently moved 5 min from a DZ so if you ever want to jump in NorCal hit me up on DZ.com!
  9. Once you're in the harness you'll realize how secure it is. You're gonna get hooked though... I did, LOL. My original thought was that "they" should pay me for the first couple jumps and IF I survived, I would start to pay them for continued training. Needless to say it didn't work out that way. Still hooked though.
  10. Welcome back! I only just started jumping and it's been a blast.
  11. ROTFLOL!!! If I was the guy in that vid this would become my new sig!
  12. Welcome to the forum, I've got one more jump to complete my AFF and then I'll start working on my A license. I'm super new also ( to the sport AND the forum) but I'm pretty stoked on it. Let us k ow when you start AFF!
