A girl after my own heart! I was airborne in the army and continued on. I've never base jumped though, although it looks like a blast.

Did you do HALO or just static line? Base is "shit your pants" scary. And I say that in the most literal way possible.

All of mine were static line. I wanted to take advanced free fall when I got out, but it was too expensive, so a few more static line jumps. I sure didn't miss jumping with full gear, that's for sure. I've heard base jumping as you said was "shit your pants" scary. I would have loved it.

Aww you don't know what you're missing. Sure static is still fun but freefall is where it's at. Someday if you have the cash you should go up for an AFF level 1.

I've known several freefall folks and they said the same thing. I do hope to have some extra cash at some point soon. I'll get back up there, no doubt. I can always spend a hundred bucks for a tandem, but I still want to do it myself. When I was in the army, we called it "altitude adjustment" :)

NO tandem! Not for you, you already know how to land a canopy. Go for the real deal

I do know how to land a canopy, and having several jumps under a T-10, I know how to land from the side, rear, front, etc. At least the MC1-1B was a little better. I do honestly hate the idea of tandem, but advanced free fall is $1000 that I don't have. It's still on my bucket list :)

That's for the whole course. You can pay the same amount as your tandem for just the level 1

The pineapple one, right? That's awesome. I'd love to jump the skybridge on the Petronas towers and aim for the waterpark.

Just saw your jump video, and what can I say but awesome! I was nervous just watching! Your laughs whenever you touched ground made my soul soar each time!
You wrote that you "waited for your moment of zen" and that it took an hour and a half. Do you mean that you had to wait your turn for that long or that you waited that long until you were emotionally ready?

No it had been my turn for that hour and a half but I waited. It's kinda hard to describe. You have all these "what-ifs" going through your mind and you have to plan for if they happen, even complete failure of gear leading to death. At least that's how it is with me. I have to wait till I'm ok with all that and feel my mental peace before I jump. I guess thats why I laugh like a dork after landing.

I just still dont understand how you know when to pull the chord. Theres one part of the video when you jump and it seems like you go on forever before pulling. Some guy by the camera even says "damn!"
Reply
:iconjenncroft:
JennCroft Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012
I count. Or I wait till I'm too scared to fall further and I pull. The guy said that on camera because I was sucking it pretty low, as I sometimes do. Some people like to do aerials, I'm just a dirty low puller. :D

lenlenlen1 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Professional General Artist
Count to what? Based on how high you jumped? "Sucking it low" basically means you pulled the chord at the last possible minute doesnt it? You dirty low puller you!

:iconjenncroft:
JennCroft Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012
The number depends on how high up. You can do about 5-6 seconds. In the one jump I did 7.5. And yeah you got the concept right.

Basejumping FTW! Did you try to land in a pool on you way down or did you have to land close to your car so you could make a speedy get a way?

JennCroft Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2011
These were legal jumps. The only kind I post pictures of on the internet. ;) I didn't land in a pool but another jumper landed in the pool on the rooftop of our 31 story hotel during the pool party.

Okay just checking. I wonder how the conversation went when you asked if it was okay to jump off the building.

JennCroft Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2011
Oh I never had to converse with the building owners directly. It's a big event that goes on once a year to celebrate the anniversary of the tower, and it's organized by another base jumper. I had to send in an application form and provide references and all that kinda stuff to get accepted into the event.
