I think there shouldn't be a legal limit as by what altitude your main must be deployed I really hate it when i get in shit for low pulls !!! In canada it's 2200', but I think it's a person's judgment when to pull. And SECOND, I don not agree with some DZ's policy that makes AAD mandatory, it's also should be just a person's choice
Yeah, and have you ever seen someone pack a base canopy? You think packing is tough, you should see that. There is like 40 steps(just guessing), plus you use clamps and stuff like that. Its like packing a reserve everytime you use it.
Its only cheaper if you dont get caught...if you get caught on NPS land they can give you fines of $2000 and loss of gear. If you get busted other places you can have lawyer fees and jail time...Hank was looking at 6 months for that reckless endangerment stunt in Colorado. I think that guy that jumped of the St. Louis Arch got time too.
