Wonder if we will see these again? Can't Post

I know Jerry took this photo, not sure when, thinking the 60's. Anyone know the location of the DZ? Its been a mystery.
Just wish I was old enough to jump when those prices were that low. Sure Twardo took advantage of them! Cool

I've seen a photo of the TI truck. Jim West at Green County in Ohio said the same thing when I pulled up in SunPath's white RV back in 2005. Guessing that was the early 60's when Jerry made the rounds. Thanks for the info, wonder if I can track down where he went those couple of years?

There was a time at Titusville when you could manifest, buy a ticket, and get a beer at the same window at the same time.
The 5th jump was a little hazy. Wink

That one was rather loosely enforced by the 70's...

Doc's DZ in Hitchcock TX was pretty reasonable in the 70's (four bucks to 7,200)

Also I remember three jumps at Spaceland and a BBQ Sandwich and beer down the road at the Branding Iron, all for twenty bucks...

York Skydivers (York Pa) was $4.00 to 7200 for visiting jumpers. For club members, it was $3.50.

$6 to 12,500, but we were told not to expect to do much RW since the air was so thin. You'd have to schedule a whole load, usually of people who needed some 60 second delays for their licenses. We may have run 6 loads to 12.5 all year.

First jump course $35, and your static lines were $6, which killed me.

I jump at Maytown DZ today. We run 2 182's, and a ride to 10K is $18. At our rate of $8 and $1 per thousand, 4K is only $12. A ride to 13K is $25.

Duane Kindel (the name blacked out on the ticket) put me out on my first SL back in 1972 in Mason Mi.
Any one know if he is still around?

Yup. Poppenhagers in Indiantown FL.The place to be in its time. Not sure if Pops still posting here but if so he would remember the day I rode a double malfunction down. A Mae west in a modified 7T-U spinning so fast that as I grabbed the reserve to catch it and pulled it ended up wrapped around me like a shroud. Luckily for me the strip was muddy and I landed hard but unbroken. I peeled down the canopy and stepped out of it, picked it up and walked to pop at the shed, tossed it down and asked for my $5 rental fee back. He said "Hell, I saved you $10. If it was yours I'd. Charge $15 to repack it.
Then we both laughed.
