  3. From the DZs you mentioned, I only know Skydive San Marcos. Not being able to comment on the others, this is a dropzone which I happily would suggest to anyone who wants to start jumping. Generally - drive to all of them, talk to the People - especially the instructors - and make up your mind also based on the Impression they leave on you. enjoy the ride!

  4. Yes, that's the one. M. vSCR No.94 Don't dream your life - live your dream!
  5. Walter died on Saturday, February 17, during a BASE jump from the Sas Prodoi mountain in Italy. While BASE related, I'm posting this here as well as he was an avid wingsuit jumper as well. BSBD, M. vSCR No.94 Don't dream your life - live your dream!
  6. Things The Quattro Does That The ProTrack 2 Does Too: The PorTrack 2 does now have 4 highspeed warnings In regards to the JumpTrack SW - It is discontinued by L&B. The now refer to using Paralog.
  7. About 30+ (8countries) in 13 years, most of them in Germany and the US. vSCR No.94 Don't dream your life - live your dream!
  8. I'm thankful to have known you and you will be dearly missed. We can only envy the place where you're now, as it will be a better place from now on. RIP Peanut. vSCR No.94 Don't dream your life - live your dream!

  10. I try to describe the Setup as I am lacking a photo right now: Starting from the photo mjosparky posted, imagine that you run the canula from under the chin along one of your arms under the jumpsuit. You cut them about 1-2 cm (about 1 Inch) after they "emerged" at your wrist. This end will be connected to the tubes that are hanging from the aircrafts Oxygen System. To connect, you can use a bungee wher you stick the ends of both tubes in. When it is time to exit, you disconnet and either stuff the extra Inch back in the jumpsuit or let it "hang out". It doesn't really create a snagpoint. Personnally, I try to leave it connected as long as possible. Depending on the length of the hose that stays in the aircraft, I even leave it connected when on a floater Position. On Exit it just disconnects itself. (and Yes, that could be irritating other Jumpers, so tell them about your plan). I hope this made is clearer. If not send me a PM and I try to look up a photo of the Setup. vSCR No.94 Don't dream your life - live your dream!
