Wow, so you skydive also? That's really cool.
I've came close twice. First time when I was about 20 yrs. old, and I had managed to save enough money. I tried all day calling the one place near San Antonio to schedule my first jump, but all I got was a busy signal or what seemed to be their phone ringing off the wall. I concluded God did not want me to jump, at least that day. I got side tracked after that.
Second time was back during this past summer. I bought a Groupon that was a good deal for two for their first jump/training. Went to schedule it and nobody would answer the phone. I tried several days but it didn't happen. Groupon said they had numerous calls of problems w/ this merchant. Again, I guess God didn't want me to jump.
I did get my PADI open-water certification January 2012 in Belize, however, I have a feeling the opportunity to ever dive again, let alone get proficient will be very rare.
BTW, my handle is self-explanatory (Apparently, I lack creativity too, but I prescribe to the concept of K.I.S.S.
