If you have no buddies then wait a minute and when someone comes and gives you that "you going" look just say, no buddy, you go ahead.

sheepstealer I always study the approach/takeoff/landing before I hit a big jump or watch someone else go first.

There's a gnarly step up on my local mountain that has a bunch of bowling ball sized chunder-death-cookies right in front of the the landing. Whats worse than overshooting a jump?

Undershooting a jump.

Right on for a helmet Newb. Never leave home without one.

Yeah, it didn't feel great haha. Fortunately instead of panicking and bailing, I just tried to stomp the landing anyway, and almost did...but slipped out and smacked my head.
