Some guys snort for it, others jab a vein, all you gotta do is jump…

So yeah…I realize this isn’t going to be for everyone, but Old Glory Persons, myself and the Schnitzel are in. Naturally, I don’t think this is the type of thing which peer pressure should be applied, since some might consider it “risky behavior”, however I think it will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and all the better when enjoyed together.

The plan is to Skydive, as brothers, together, at 1pm Sunday, November 7th. The company is ‘Skydive Santa Barbara‘ and they are based out of the Lompoc airport. My thought is to try and make the 1pm time slot, so we have some time to “digest” the night before and eat a good breakfast in the morning. You aren’t supposed to drink for 8 hours before the jump. Apparently the tandem jump (which is mandatory, unless you’re an expert) can be done in a few hours depending on weather. They said to allocate at least 4 hours, but it will likely take less time. Also, if you are a ‘portly’ gentleman, like Old Glory, it will cost an extra dollar per pound over 200lbs, with a maximum of 230lbs. I guess the extra cost goes to more parachute. For those without a weight problem, the cost will be a cool $199.

To reserve your spot on the jump, you can call 1.877.652.JUMP(5867) and pay a $50 non-refundable deposit. Ask for the 1pm jump, with ‘Geoffrey’s’ group (make sure to mention the group, so we all get a discount). So far I have 3 spots reserved for the aforementioned brothers (Diego, Ben and myself), however (as of today) there are 7 more available slots. I imagine that the spots will fill up, since 1pm Sunday will probably be a popular time. So if you are thinking about it, do it, join us!! Get dere!
