hello all My group gets there the 28, but i arrive alone to Des Moines on the 30, in a flight from Dallas at 9:40am. Yea, I need a ride to Ft Dodge. If anyone gets there with me or later that day, and has room in their car, pleaaase I can drive, Im small and Ill help with the gas...
Lots of high places to camp in Ft. Dodge. Good thing too! I see on the Today show this morning that they are working hard to keep the levy intact in Ft. Dodge. Anybody know how to google earth for the Des. Moines River in that area? Good news is, the storms that come thru this afternoon are supposed to be the last for a while, so we'll all have time to dry out before Wednesday. And I know those crazy Couch Freaks well enough to know that they will be partying come Hell or High Water.
Do you know of anyone who does have video of that load? I spent the next several days at the hospital with friends, and I was told there was video out there, but never saw it. If anyone does have any, I would love to take some back to the guys who are on the video. I am sure they would love to see it, and would really appreciate it.
you will be all happy to know that I am getting Jimmy "the midwest freefly legend" Coiners rig repacked this weekend (one of his rigs) so he will be ready for the boogie.. or should I say so you all can have a boogie. Oh and don't forget his birthday is always boogie weekend!!!! have fun with that. Joe
if they haven't told us by now, I'm kinda worried. We might show up and it will have turned out to be $35 per normal jump ticket!
Jesus Christ! Yeah, that would be just like those Freaks, the ol bait and switch. They'll price slots at whatever covers their cost, etc. I've been informed that the tandem concession is the only thing on the airport that is doing anything more than breaking even (for the club). So, show up, pay your money, shut up, and JUMP!
