I would suggest not getting completely sun-burnt the day before. When you drop and flare in the tight harness, it feels like your skin is being torn from your body. I also jumped before ever being in any plane, so the 1st time ever in a plane, I never landed with it.

Nope, rained out (tornado watch, which is very odd for our area). Was away at a wedding Saturday, my 17th wedding anniversary yesterday, and aiming to jump on friday. A friend wants to join so we are just trying to get our schedules to mesh...Pictures to follow!

Don't give up the dream. 1 week turns into 10 years very quickly.

Yes, tandem. Unless you know of any military aircraft that would allow a 1st time civilian go up and jump?

They all will, you just have to get out the door before the jump master can stop you. Not as difficult as you would think.
