I have created a facebook event for the boogie. Be sure to add your name to the "going" list and invite all of your friends!

Here are a couple pics of Chris Q (courtesy of Jake Nelson) making what I believe to be one of the last water landings at McGregor Lake. It'd be nice if we could get something like this going again this year.

51 days: 22 hours: 19 minutes until my flight leaves Atlanta. I think I need to go ahead and start packing to make sure I don't forget anything. Wink

Who has water gear. Didn't Amazon use to bring the gear? I would love to make a jump into the lake.

Sorry BigSky, I wish I had an answer for you. Maybe you can get someone from your home DZ to loan you one? Or maybe someone with multiple rigs at LP will have one for you. Between the boats, emergency crew, rigs, and riggers water jumps are always almost as much fun as they are a pain in the ass. That said, If you build it they will come.

Not to mention it gets downright expensive for that many repacks on reserves.. it seems people who were gung ho to jump and wanted to borrow the gear forget about that part of the deal. SOOOOOO unless some wonderful rigger helps out, it can get pretty spendy to provide "friends" with the old gear... but that only happened a couple times.Unsure

I should just sell off all my old gear I used for the water jumps.. it was just not worth all the hasslesFrown

Nope.. doing the OTHER kind of relative workUnimpressed

Most of the time I get to avoid that sort of thing due to putting 3000 miles betwixt the relatives and myself... but this year... oh well

Unfortunately I have to cancel my trip to the LP boogie this summer, due to medical reasons. I had reserved 6 nights at the Lodge at McGregor Lake and that room is now AVAILABLE! There are only 5 rooms there so if you want to stay there call Carolyn right away and grab my room! Also this would help me out a LOT since I can't get my deposit back unless the room gets filled! :) Please pass the word on! The price is terrific and the comfortable bed/hot shower is a great luxury, only a couple of minutes from the DZ!

Looks like the room at the Lodge already got snapped up! That was fast! Thanks, whoever took it, and I hope you enjoy it! See you all at next year's boogie once health issues are resolved.

Temperatures in the 70 to 80 during the day and as low as the mid 40 this week. Sounds like a normal NW summer but August will be wonderful as usual.

Montana State Records:

Since USPA has no listings for any records from Montana,
We are declaring Wednesday, August 8th to be Montana State Record Day. We'll be doing belly, freefly, wingsuit and possibly CRW records.

So come early.

First load of the day should be a bunch of 2 way records :)

Does USPA recognize naked records?

Is anyone driving Vancouver way after the boogie? I might be meeting up with my brother there, not sure yet.

Other ways to stay warm:
Option1
Find a warm person to "sleep" next to
Option2
Drink more (leads to Option1)

option 3
Complete option one, then continue with option 2 until you forget which tent option 1 was in, stand naked by the fire to stay warm because you have no idea where your pants are, find someone else to keep you warm for the night just as option 1 returns with your pants, suggest it would be even warmer with 3. Complete option 3 :)
