    RSL

    Right on the $$$. False pride and over confidence, 2 big killers. I feel most people should use an RSL. I heard one very experienced, very high performance jumper stating all wingsuiters should use RSL's. I was surprised but pleased. There's a lot of dead jumpers that would have been saved by an RSL. Want to be stable when your reserve deploys? Try putting your feet on your butt and arching when you chop. Not many people do. That's a very good point John. Nobody ever taught me that, I read that here on DZ.com. Luckily when I did my first cutaway it was almost instinct and allowed for a perfect on heading opening of the reserve following a spinning line-twist malfunction.

  5. You need to do some research. Your comment speaks volume on your lack of knowledge.I will get bashed (and will not reply) but they do not all open the same. Some canopies will snivel and there is your hint. Also, I am a PD fan, just disagree with some canopy performance characteristics. Edited for grammer LOL, Clearly not.

    Skydive Zephyrhills

    I picked up a 50$ tent and an 18$ air mattress at Walmart and camped out for 2 weeks for a total of 5$ a day. Slept like a baby every night. -> Woke up -> Took shower -> Jumped -> Repeat Had an amazing time and I will definitely be going back each New Year

    bungge jumping vs skydiving.

    I've bungee jumped a total of 3 times. They are completely different from one another. Each and every time I get the feeling of "What on earth is possessing me to do this." "Why am I here" "Don't do it" I absolutely love that feeling.. Don't get that anymore on a skydive.

    Buying my own rig for AFF

    It's only 8,000$, I don't understand why everyone makes such a big deal about it! Just buy your own rig for AFF, don't listen to everyone else... They're just jealous that they didn't buy a Nav240 as their first canopy. "Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way." -Alan Watts
