St. Patties day weekend Fitzgerald?

Recommended Posts

One of the cutaways was a guy who made a spectacle in the packing area when he loudly chewed out his packer then proceeded to take his rig away from her, unpack it (critiquing all her work), and packed it himself.

He chopped it...

I don't know if doing a raft dive at a boogie with three aircraft in the air is a very good idea. The helicopter pilot saw the raft and called it out to the skyvan and otter. Then he followed it down, landed, got out and grabbed it and brought it back. Class act.

If the plane is unrecoverable then exiting is a very very good idea.

Hmmmmmmm, All the pilots were aware of the raft dive and the location of the raft was called out until it was not a factor for jump ops. Care to tell me where the problem is? I don't recall the chopper pilot going to get the raft but that could have happened I guess.

As I recall his rig was not ready when he wanted it. I know we did need more packers.

Word around the DZ was that a local cop brought it back and was laughing about it! Can't really say that it would take sense for the helicopter pilot to add extra time to his aircraft to do that, but I didn't see either version, so who knows?

I don't know if it was that jump but it was on Saturday and the pilot handed me the raft after landing and I took it and put it in the loading tent.
They put the duals in and let me fly it to Walmart on a beer and smokes run so they weren't to worried about the Hobbs time.

Okie dokie, yeah, that was definitely a different load from the one Keith, Robert, Billy, Myself and others were on. Our raft showed up by the main packing tent.

Not ready then???? I see..
maybe....but when there are limited Nylon Compression Professionals on site. then folks Need to Chill....:|
It does no one any good to overwhelm any packer(s). [:/]

Not happy with that idea????
then pack the damn thing Yourself!!...:P;)
OR make prior arrangement to have someone There, to pack for you and who might then, give YOU priority... and tip accordingly !!!
Did the offended jumper NOT realize that maybe the packers were there,,,, already having committed to pack for Other jumpers... surely common sense needs to apply here... Thanks Spence for providing the packing tent...

Will be looking for you then too. Hopefully we can get a jump in. Just so I can say I jumped with a bunch of fucking Canadians... :D:D:D
