    THC & Dropzones

    Off topic kinda but the drop zone I’ve been taking student jumps at always smells like bud dew to the fact that right next to the hangers is a large legal grow op. I’m in Wa where bud is kinda a norm but I’d hate to smoke and jump, I get paranoid enough sober but that’s just me.
  3. So I did Aff 3,4 and 5. Once I forgot to ask for footage and the other two times there was no chip or camera was off. Little disappointed as I like to be able to see from outside view of things. Jumps went okay (always room for improvement). But my question is do instructors not like giving footage? Money wasn’t a concern or I wouldn’t have asked in first place. I’ll always hold these memories and it’s not that big of a deal but the first solo exit and some 360s would be nice to have. Of all malfunctions though cameras are my least concern.

    Save $$ buying direct from LB??

    I'm pretty sure you cant buy direct.
  7. I noticed on LB’s website as I was drooling over the Viso 2 that it costs 234 Euros, which with the current exchange rate ends up being about $263usd. All other places in the US (paragear, ChutingStar, etc,) have it listed for $310 usd. Am I missing something here or am I just gonna buy it from LB direct? I’ll give up ChutingStar points to save $50 anyday. ;p

    Does anybody have info on WW2 C-47 crew bailout gear?
  9. Instructor Assisted Deployment. It's a replacement for static line, so very similar in its process, but a free fall rig is used and the instructor throws the pilot chute as the student leaves the airplane.

    I appreciate your comments. however, you are incorrect about me being impatient about the photo's. Mr. Blevins posted that the event was cancelled. that's when I made a comment that the ground view would benefit the case. Robert then replied he might go later in the year. Eric chimed in saying he would go in two weeks and try and get the photo's he wanted as well. I didn't ask anyone to go in the first place. I only suggested pics would be a benefit. Eric already has a plan in place. it doesn't require petty trespassing. Some of us choose not to work with certain people due to strong negative behavior that reached out far beyond the internet. most I'm sure you are not aware of in which I would gladly show you offline if required. In my view. the damage can not be repaired. it is what it is. If not mistaken, I don't want to speak for Eric, but I believe he has a purpose for being in the area. that's why he decided to go. Roberts main goal appears to be searching the area. Eric's goal is pictures and might need them before that time. the bottom line was. nobody was going to the location when I first posted. now, it appears only one is allowed?
  11. Is this still for sale? I sent you a dm
  12. Not familiar with this terminology. What does the "IAD student" part mean?

  14. From that angle you can't tell how loose you t-shirt is, but a jumpsuit is a good idea for free fall jumps for many reasons. Congrats on the clear-and-pull! I still remember mine back way back in 2002, I was shitting bricks getting ready for that jump, and so happy when my chute opened successfully.

    Not that anyone probably cares, but it would seem that the point of my earlier post has been missed by some. The point was: 'Cooper' is a decades-old case that most of the world has forgotten about save for a handful of writers, amateur sleuths, aging parachutists, and other curious folks. One would hope that you could all find common ground and get along, even among 'friendly' disagreement about suspects and circumstances. A thought about the earlier disagreement: Mr. Shutter, if, after 48 years, you can't wait a few more weeks for your choice from a plethora of photographs, I don't know what to tell you. Actually, I do know, and it's this: If a trespassing Eric were to get mowed down by an errant Flatbed Ten logging truck, Weyerhaeuser could revoke Mr. Blevins' permit faster than an 80's NPS Ranger. Would that bother anyone else? Also, Mr. Shutter, I'll make you a friendly wager. If Blevins comes across an odd penny loafer or an unexploded roll of quarters, then you have to publicly declare that Klansnic was Cooper. If not, then a free tandem skydive awaits whichever of you is willing to show up to Elsinore on the hottest Saturday in August.

    How long should it take to get on a load?

    I did my first jump that day with a long sleeve fleece pullover that fits tightly (luckily all my warm cloths are old and purchased before I gained 30 lbs, so they are all snug lol) and my last two jumps were done in the snug fitting T-shirt. Does it look like my shirt is too loose? Ill talk to the coach about finding a jumpsuit (or buying one). I was comfortable at 5k AGL, but I am sure 9k at a 120 mph will be cold.
