I'm no expert at this, but I'm guessing my weight counteracts some of the forward speed when the canopy is "planing out" after half brakes. The smaller canopy can't fly me forward as fast. That being said, it won't surprise me if more experienced people have other opinions...B|



Nah...you're just getting better at converting speed into lift (having a but more energy in the system due to higher suspended weight helps too). :)

Is this still on a Pulse?

I also don't know why, but my landings also improved greatly when I went down to a 190 from a 210. Now I'm under a 170 that I just LOVE!! :)



Interesting. I wonder if there's other people out there with similar experiences?


I was flying a 200 through AFF, then through renting went from a 200 to 170, and now I fly a 150. I'm still only loaded at 0.8, but have found that the response is much better as I have gone down. I have been told that when the wing is loaded too LIGHTLY, you don't have as much power to fly it and land it properly. I'm still learning though :)

Hmmmm.......72 jumps before you started swearing. You're doing much better than I did. :)
I really enjoy the strips.......thank you. They remind me of my own progression years ago. There's nothing like the excitement of learning this crazy game.

I think it's time you add a Whorse to your cast of characters.:)


Actually I've heard three variations of that at the DZ:

1. "I want to see a cartoon with me in it"
2. "Don't you dare put me in the cartoon..."
3. "That was me? You draw that? I didn't know that was you..."

I think you should put me in there. I already drew me for you. :P

Hi everyone,

Jennifer asked me to pass on a sincere thank you for all of your support and well wishes.

Her phone has limited internet connection right now so she can't read them or reply. Hopefully it will be better when they move her to the rehab.

She is doing well and her spirits are high. :)

Be yourself!
MooOOooOoo

This could be bad[:/]

What hand does Namowal use to draw her cartoons with.:ph34r:

Thanks for the kind thoughts and words. :)
I'm still at a hospital for physical therapy but I finally have a computer (and good internet access) so I can swing by and thank everyone.B|

And if you all think I'll make a cartoon about all this... ...you're right. :)p.s.. My drawing arm okay.
