Wow, that long ago? it doesn't seems that long... I remember Dave letting me fly the Otter on the way down after dropping jumpers...what a cool dude he was. I sold him my guns for jump tickets and then he sold them back to me cheaper than What I had paid him... He said to me once...you should not part with these...one day they might want to take them away from you.
Dave was in my first 8-man in 1972. He agreed to let me on the load even though I only had 43 jumps. When I decided to sell my gear and go hitchiking through Europe he bought my PC and didn't squable about the price. He was a dude.
