Re: [steve1] What's a Death Rig look like?

In reply to:
In my mind's eye, a death rig, might have been a pig rig, with one shot cape wells. Complete with Jesus cord, and blast handle. Inside might have been a para-plane. A 24 foot-round-reserve might have topped off their back pack.

OMG! You just described my second rig! Well, other than the fact that it had a PARADACTYL instead of a Para Plane! But the reserve was, indeed, a 24' flat.

Today, I wouldn't jump that rig for anything! Reserve ripcord was HARD to get out.

Unfortunately -- or maybe fortunately -- it got stolen.

Hope the thief escaped karma.
