Is there something wrong with me? ;-) Can't Post

I did a CRW camp this weekend and learned so much about canopy flight and flying relative to others... and part of me wants to start putting together a dedicated CRW Rig... is there something wrong with ME?

Seriously though... I had a great experience learning CRW over the weekend and getting a ton of firsts... including Pin's and Stacks... and just thought I'd share my excitement with others that would appreciate it.

I may not become a hard core CRW Dawg but I would like to fly with more of y'all to get more interesting pictures and video... Smile and I appreciate the skill involved in what y'all are doing because that stuff is scary, or can get scary/dangerous fast if you don't know what you're doing!!!

The only thing "dedicated" about my rig are the canopy, risers & jumper Wink. On the rare occassions when I do freefall, all I have to do is switch out the canopy/risers & the closing loop, and I'm good to go.

Welcome to the Dark Side. Enjoy the cookies.Smile

 Nothing wrong with you. You are a generous soul. You just want to reach out and touch someone......while under canopy.

Doing CRW with trailing pilot chutes isn't recommended. There's a reason CRW canopies have retractable pilot chutes.

Still, nice pics.
