Pre-second CRW jump Can't Post

Hi Guys,

Just felt like sharing, since I'm still so pumped. I did my f*rst real CRW jump on the weekend. A 3-point 2 way with a VERY brave jumper and great friend Laugh. Bi-plane, side-by-side, followed by a downplane (scary as shit, but SO awesome).

It was a BIG mistake. I've seen the light, and now there's NO going back Blush

In case anyone is wondering, yes, it WAS followed by alcohol Angelic

I think it's all downhill from here. Anyways, carry on. Just thought I'd share. Smile

Damn straight Wendy!! It sure does! Scared the bejesus outta me though.

Quick question, what's the difference between a stack and a bi-plane? Or is there a difference, other than the name? I thought maybe a bi-plane just means two canopies, where a stack implies more than two. Or is a stack when you're just sitting on the canopy, and a bi-plane after you've slid down the lines?

I'm new to most of this CRW lingo, but I knew what one jumper meant when he told my partner to have a Merry Christmas Tongue

Bi-plane is when you are slid down the lines to the bottom person risers. This causes your chutes to look like the old "bi-planes" wings.
There is going to be a CRW camp in Eastern Michigan (Midwest Skydive)in mid AUG., it dosen't look too far from your area. You can learn a lot from a GREAT teacher/instructor Mr. Razz!

See 4th thread below this one for more info.
