What do I win?



A hell of a lot of gratitude, I hope. :)
Please don't quit. Seems like you're caring about what you do.



The world needs more riggers that care as much as Greg does. He's been my rigging idol since I was a lowly packer. I should use that term very loosely... when he met me, I was a really sorry excuse for a packer :)

But how many bottles of liquor did you get out of all that?



Way more than I could possibly drink (215 saves)



Wow. That's another amazing statistic.

Actually, what I was really curious about was the ratio of packs to saves. And I was just trying to ask that in a fun way. It looks like, from your experience, that one out of every 18-19 pack jobs is actually used in an emergency. Interesting...

Statistics are fun, huh? If you rough guess an average of 50 jumps per pack job, that means about 1 in a 1000 jumps results in a save.

He must not be much of a drinker. I would have passed on #1-999 and only packed #1000. Saves energy and allows more time for the drinking.
My reality and yours are quite different.

Another statistic I read, was that there was a 1 in 700 chance of a mal. So that sounds about right too, that given 50 jumps per packjob leads to a save roughly between 10 and 20 packjobs, given a healthy error margin.

From memory, that's about the average in Australia. Incident stats are better (though not perfectly) collected here, and to get your sporting license renewed you have to supply the # of jumps and # of reserve rides in the last 12 months...
