  2. So after reading some recommend bench etc. No, don't. Fitness is made to strenghten your muscles, not your core or ligaments/tendons. DON'T talk to "certified" gym trainers, talk to graduated physiotherapists. They will know best how to strenghten your joints without risking injury. They will provide you with the correct set of workouts, maybe add some laser treatment or manual therapy if you have the bucks. I have a professional graduated physiotherapist in my family and can't stress enough how little gym trainers know about the actual structures of ligaments, joints, muscles etc.

    How long to wait before starting back fly?

    I had my first tunnel experience recently. Did 20 mins belly last week and 10 mins belly then 10 back right after. By the end of the 10 mins I could hold position on my back for most of the 2 min block but still got a bit wobbly at times for sure. Just send it there is no harm trying. It does feels pretty opposite compared to belly.

    Eric Ulis says in part: Poor attitude to a legit question there, Eric. Providing 'documentation' is a bit silly, I'll admit. Maybe "I became interested in the case around the time of the Tina Bar money find, and a couple of years ago I started actually researching the case..." is a simple enough answer. And there is nothing wrong with that answer. I already supported you to a degree by saying it isn't how long you've been around, but what you are contributing now to help forward the case. However, you should EXPECT questions like this when you start putting out (almost) daily videos on the Cooper case, and are offered a free venue for the next Cooper event....an event where you were asked by the guy who PROVIDED that venue...to work with people. So far, I have not seen that. So far, you blew off all the hard work done by others to help you make that a success. Brunberg and Bryan Ward at the V23 Brewery aren't looking for a repeat of your first convention. They want a Cooper Party, a COOPER EVENT...dedicated to bringing in large numbers of NEW Cooper fans from the general public around the Pacific Northwest and beyond. They aren't looking for you, Bruce S, and a few others to just stand up there behind a podium and give speeches, and leaving it at that, although yes...there should be speakers. If they had done only that at the annual Ariel Party, Dona Elliot would have had far less people showing up each year. As it was, the only thing limiting Ariel was the number of people who could crowd into the building. There is NO WAY you can come close to hosting a real 'Northwest Cooper Event' that brings in heavy attendance without cooperation from a lot of different people. And I should know this because I worked with Brunberg and Ward for over four months on something that would combine the idea of a straight convention with a replacement for the now-defunct Ariel Store party. Do you have the slightest idea how hard that is to pull off? To convince hundreds of people to show up to a Cooper event on the same weekend as Black Friday shopping? HA! You have no idea. It's tough, baby. And it can't be done alone, or with a few people who believe they are the be-all and end-all of everything Cooper. When Jim Brunberg turned his Mississippi Studios venue over to you for free, you were expected to produce in exchange for that leadership role. He also asked you to work with the same people who had been working on the project months before you were offered that role. You haven't done that. You didn't even answer the messages. This does not instill confidence. AB of Seattle staff thinks that you will simply invite the same old faces to do the same old things, instead of hosting an organized program that packs the house. After Jim Brunberg handed Mississippi Studios over to you, he also saw some rather discouraging comments at Shutter's place about the whole thing. He had concerns about a lack of cooperation and sent me the following message in March: Well, it's been three months since Jim handed you this responsibility. What have you done about it? How have you risen above the rhetoric, as Jim wants, and become a leader in this matter? I don't see it. So far, all that has happened is that major support, not just from AB but others, has been bailing because you don't seem to work with others very well. Six months to go may seem to be a long time, but it really isn't You've already lost support and a third of your time provided to prepare for November has come and gone. Jim, Bryan, and the guy from Northwest Escape expect you to come through for them. Your idea seems to be it is better to go it alone, or depend on a couple of people like Bruce at Mountain News or Mark M ('377') to pack the house. Do you think that's what will actually get people to the door? You need help. We had thirty people on the committee for the Auburn Days Festival, and it takes more than me to organize the Cooper Campouts. If you don't start figuring out which side the bread is actually buttered, and start bringing in assistance, any idea of an annual Cooper Party/Convention that really works is doomed to failure. The NW public is not looking for another boring convention. They're looking to have fun, see new faces, and do a celebration of Cooper. That is not just ONE thing, but many things. Twelve weeks gone and you haven't come up with a single idea yet, as far as I can tell. If you want to be Fearless Leader, that comes with responsibilities, my friend.

    Squirrel C3

    Time Left: 29 days and 16 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Colugo3 for sale!!!!! The C3 has been an very effective suit for me to learn more advance skills in wingsuit piloting. Sightly bigger in surface area than the Freak2, I was able to don the C3 after training heavily with the Freak2 and feel right at home. A home that has been turbo charged with more top end speed which helped with having more of a usable performance power band in glide with a good glide body configuration. I know that this is nothing new that you haven't heard before from reading any reviews or info on Squirrel's web page. I am here to tell you that the suit is everything that was advertised. Why am I selling this suit? From the skills and experience that I have gained from last WS base season, I have made the decision to move on to the next size up suits. If you're on the same path as I am, but starting from a Freak size suit then you understand the decisions that have to be made in order to advance in this very rewarding sport. The C3 will help with that transition and will be fun during it. If you have any questions about this suit, please ask. Suits features: -Black Mylar (minor ware, refer to suit pictures) -5.10 soles (a lot of life left. Haven't worn 5.10 soles down yet) -Leg wing pockets (awesome feature- unzip, drop hiking poles or whatever you want in, zip up and don suit w/o having your boots getting snagged poles or whatever) Suits Condition: Light wear in small areas. nothing to be concerned about. I will be able to send picture per requests. The suit has never been subject to any repairs. Well maintained and cared for. Suit Measurement: Weight:71 Height w/ shoes: 179 Height No shoes: 177 Inseam w/ shoes: 83 Waist: 83 Hips: 94 Chest: 102 Shoulders: 48 Forearm: 28 Bicep: 32 Torso: 70 Arm: 55 Wingspan: 76

    How much did you weigh when you jumped last vs now? A problem big guys have is the equipment is not really meant for us. Faster fall rates with more force make hard openings more likely. I highly recommend a domed slider. PD made me one and it made a huge difference in my snappy openings. I'm 6 8, 260, and feel your pain.

    Now why would I waste my time on midless $#!t like this? Really? I'm going to supply "documentation" that I started researching DBC 10 years ago or first became interested in the case about the time of the money find? What is this an inquisition? Either take my word for it or roll. I really could care less. Cheers!

    Complete system for sale. Ideal for wing suiting. The whole rig is very functional and well maintained. Can't lose on this one, especially when transitioning from beginner to intermediate wing suit flying. Also great for a fairly new jumper with 75+ jumps minimum. Here are the details: 1) Javelin J4 03/99' build. Between 5'6" to 5' 10". Between 160-200 pounds. The leg straps have been made double-wide for comfort. Clean and safe to fly. 2) Vigil II built on 42nd week of 2012. Plenty in the tank left. No known deployments 3) Raven 1 reserve 180sqf 7/95' possibly never deployed based on my riggers comments. In excellent shape and getting repacked to be ready for March 28th 2019. (Update: repacked and ready to fly) 4) Triathlon main 160sqf 98' in super excellent shape (closet baby). Everything looks practically new (Lines and all). Slider was expanded for softer openings and it open great when wing suiting. Overall, this is a great buy and will make a new skydiver or wing suiter very happy. I am asking $2250 for the whole thing and buyer pays shipping. Again, the reserve is being repacked now and will be ready by this Friday the 29th 2019. Call or email Mark for additional questions and pics.

    I do not have viewing rights on that forum and am unable to see when Eric Ulis's first post was on there. From what I can tell, he did not post anything on the old DropZone. Eric Ulis-do you have any documentation showing you have investigated this case for 10 years or do you decline to answer this question?

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Hey Everyone, I’m selling one of my personal sport rigs. I bought this HC in 2015 from Rigging Innovations and put it into service in the spring of 2016. Sized for me at 6-1 and 200 lbs. This rig is super clean and like new condition. I probably only put 75-100 jumps on it. I’m mainly doing Tandem’s now and do not need 3 rigs hanging in the shop. Fully articulated harness with black stainless steel hardware. This comes with a Smart 160 LPV with no rides and only 7 pack jobs. This is a VC3 which likes to have either a 135 or 150 standard ribbed zp canopy in it. I had a crossfire2 139 in it. If you have any questions call or text me at 314-952-2747. Thanks, Kevin Hennen.

    Neptune Ruggerdized Military version

    Time Left: 6 days and 6 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I have a Neptune “ruggerdized” wrist mount altimeter for sale. The description below is right from the Mfgs. Website. MA-12 is a new class of military altimeter that has been a long time coming. In response to many military end-user requests, we have rolled the best of our military and sport instrument design features into one new product to start a new chapter in Military Free Fall equipment.MA-12 is significantly smaller and lighter than other military altimeters, creating an extremely low-profile equipment footprint. Four screw holes in the bottom shell allow this newcomer to be mounted in the familiar left wrist location (using the wrist bracket and strap provided with each unit), or on a navigation board. The display can be flipped to allow easy access to buttons and USB port when mounted with other components.High visibility altitude reference information is provided to the jumper through a backlit digital display with large easy to read numbers. The on-board electronic pressure sensor delivers an extremely high level of accuracy up to 40,000 FT MSL at temperatures down to -40 degrees. The wrist mount bracket includes a slot for a commonly available chemical hand warmer to provide heat to the LCD screen.The USB rechargeable Lithium Ion battery provides long battery life and ease of use - no batteries to replace. The ruggedized machined aluminum case and protective lens will tolerate a 1 meter drop onto concrete, and MA-12 is waterproof for 6 FT for up to 1 hour. Altimeter is in great shape, I used it for tandems and mounted it on my right wrist. It can easily be turned around for wear on the left wrist. Asking price is $300 or best offer, Brand new the list price for this item is over $650. I will pay for shipping to a US address only Text or email only.
