Saftey related skydiving sayings Can't Post

1) It's better to walk a long distance than be carried a short one

2) Don't pull low, unless you are.

3) It's better to be down here wishing you were up there, than to be up there wishing you were down here.

It's better to take a long walk back to the dropzone than take a short ride in an ambulance.

Skydiving is more addictive and more expensive than Heroin.

When someone is considering downsizing and they say, "but that guy said a 120 would be fine", say, "but is that guy going to fly the canopy for you?"

Superior skydivers use superior judgement so that they don't have to use their superior skills.

High speed dirt, hurts!

(big way saying) Track like your life depends on it - because it does!

Never fly your downleg farther than you are willing to walk back

If you're going to land under a ball of shit, it should be the largest possible ball of shit.

It's better to land under control on a nasty runway than out of control on a perfect runway.

Going in without all your handles pulled is bad form.

8 hours, bottle to toggle.

Ya start out with two buckets. An empty one labeled experience. A full one labelled luck. Try to fill the first before the second runs out.

Your skydive isn't over until you're safely back in the hangar. Stay heads up even while walking back across the landing area.
