Oh, this is going to be a tough choice. That would be the third time I would miss night jumps at Star this summer. What to do? What to do?????

If you really want to do a night jump, we can arrange that. As far as I know, you'd be the first at Ritzville. Mmmmm.... beer....

Well, I still have a hundred and thirty some jumps to go before I can get my D, so I guess night jumps could wait. Your landing area is sufficiently challenging for me in the daylight. Blush

The blaze from the bonfire should be lighting up the whole dz. You shouldn't have any problem seeing the landing area. (I've already started collecting wood and hauling it out there.)

And if you really want barb wire fence, we do have some out by the road....Sly

Ruban was a bit too enthusiastic. He's been banned from adding fuel to the fire.

Including the Friday night night jumps. We've got it planned and it seems there's enough interest to get a few loads off. Rex says he needs 12 to take the Caravan, or otherwise will make multiple 182 loads. The logistics have been worked out - just need jumpers.

See you Friday!

hey Vint, will the night jumps be one stick or a couple passes? I have done one caravan night jump with one stick and am not gonna do another... too many people trying to kill me Crazy
although I have found the people at westplains to be more trustable than most that would be alot of peeps I cannot see.

if its the 182 sign me up Smile

Rex said if they use the Caravan, then it'll be 12 peeps minimum, 3 passes with 4 out each pass with lots of separation. Sounds pretty safe to me. Full altitude?

Otherwise, the 182, from probably 7 or 8 grand.

I'll let Rex know you're interested.
