Did the indoor skydiving a couple of months ago. It was a good time. I can't imagine it is the same feeling as jumping out of a plane.

I only have the time and money to be one type of bum.

I need to get working on my goal of winning Powerball and Megamillions. I've been slacking.

Well you ought to know not to bungee jump in africa, as who knows when the equipment got safety checked. Same as when I was in Cuba, some dude came to me selling me skydiving lessons... Thank you, but no thank you.

Dude, I dont have any clue where you are jumping at but i dont think your in the USA. I have over 1000 jumps under my belt and wow you got some mixed up facts if you are in the USA!

The AFF program is not a bad program to start in, but it is more expensive then the static line program all be it shorter.

You have to become lic. skydiver to even start thinking about what kind of skydiving you are going to want to do be it RW (belly flying) head down, sit fly, sky surf, wing suit, or even base. To do base jumps you have to get your base lic. And I know for a fact that you do not need a base endorsment to fly wing suit, unless you are talking about base jumping a wing suit. And to start wing suit flying, all you have to do is get a little instrution from someone who knows how to do it, and to be safe, go over the emergancy procedures on the ground, just like you would if you had a malfuction. But once you are lic. you can do just about anything that you want to do (leagally) out of an airplane or B.A.S.E (bridge, antenea, structure, earth) And WTF hours are you going to "rack up".....Fucking Watfo!

Thanks for clearing that up.

But my statement results from having a few acquinatances who are avid base jumpers, and that's how they got into it. First started jumping tandem, then solo, and then after few years one became and instructor, so by racking up the hours, I meant to say gaining experience and knowledge. You know what they say, you need to spend 10 000 hours at something to be good at it.

So anyway, then he started base jumping from all kinds of places, and now he's talking about wing suits. I'm sure that in all that story, there's liscencing and more training and what not, but I was just talking about the progression, or road one might take to become a knowleadgable skydiver.
