I guess I could be considered old and possibly bold. All except the last 50 or so of my jumps were with a chest reserve. When the Security was introduced I bought one and made my last jumps with that. The 26ft conical reserve was on the back above the main. I hand deployed my reserve a half dozen times, coming down under both canopies. Made only one emergency cutaway using the Security. Carlos Wallace and I went to a dude ranch in Texas to make some exhibition jumps. We made a dozen or so over the weekend - all free jumps. One of my jumps was from about 15,000 ft - 5 cutaways. I had my normal chest reserve and a different reserve affixed to each of the 2 D-rings. I held two helmet boxes that had 26ft conicles and Carlos was holding a third helment box. Carlos was behind me and we exited together. He threw out the box he was holding. I cut away from that, then I lost the 1st and 2nd I was holding and cut away from each of those. I then deployed the first attached chest reserve, cut away from it and then deployed the last attached reserve. I cut away from it at about 5,000 feet, pulled my main and rode it down. I was very active until Memorial Day 1966 when I made my last jump. I had a series of minor malfunctions - mostly line overs, blown panels and broken lines. I had 5 of these in my last 7 jumps, so I figured someone was trying to tell me something. I haven't been back to a DZ since then. I hit the ground, walked to the hut and took off my helmet, instruments and rig, gave them to Gus Anagnostis for the club, and walked off the field.

Trust me, you've been mentioned before in this thread.

There is nothing more dangerous than breaking a basic safety rule and getting away with it. It removes fear of the consequences and builds false confidence. (tbrown)

I had not seen this thread until last week, and although my name is mentioned, I am not sure I really qualify.

Many things I did were in a challenge to a dare, Maybe I should be on the stupidest skydiver thread, eh ??

It is almost impossible for me to not accept a dare. Its a challenge and I won't back down.

Almost cost me my life on more than a few occassions.

We've got Bill Harris here in Hawaii. He's going to be 82 in December. He's still active and makes at least 100 jumps a year. In his spare time he swims, does acrobatics on trampolines and flies gliders.

Truly sad day for Skydive Elsinore crew. Jim Hickey was the most committed skydiver/base jumper that I've ever seen. I remember him trying to recruit jumpers to send a load on a low ceiling cloud day, just to get out at 1500 ft. Hickey made so many hop and pops go on a shitty day, he was the best non-official load organizer ever.

Soooooo fucking cliche to say this but, he really died what he loved doing the most. He was at Elsinore almost every weekend, rain or shine, back to back jumps.

BSBD Jim.

Jumped with South Dakota Skydivers.
Once exited a 182 while expanding the door when his belly-mount deployed as he put out static line students.
Had what for most would be a disabling stroke and came back to jump for 15 years after.
He gained a lot of weight, and blew up more canopies than most people have ever owned.
He would stall a canopy at 15-20' if it meant a dead-center.
This is the paradox of skydiving. We do something very dangerous, expose ourselves to a totally unnecesary risk, and then spend our time trying to make it safer.
