    Tips On Packing A Fairly New Canopy

    Bought a brand new Triathlon a few years ago and pro packing it sucked big time. Learned to psycho pack that slick puppy & never went back. No line twists and I do triple check my pilot chute to make sure it's cocked :-) No reserve rides as of yet! _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!

    Age

    49 _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!
  4. I'm not an instructor but good for you! I was 49 when I did my first Static Line class. And yes I had a steep learning curve. Had never seen anyone sport jump before and didn't even know they did that for fun. Had only heard about Army jumping under rounds from my hubby...for 18 years! I only have a little over 200 jumps now but it's the coolest thing I have ever done and will keep doing it at long as I am physically able! I just wanted to encourage you and wish you Good Luck! _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!

    Jumping with dreadlocks

    It's more a safety issue...cut your hair but do something awesome for cancer patients and donate it to: http://www.locksoflove.org/ _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!

    Anyone with Triathlon 7cell 190-210ish?

    I have an older Tri 220 with the 4.0 Mod and a 2 year old 190. LOVE the Tri and will probably never jump anything else but I'm older and a conservative jumper...I agree with everything popsjumper said!

    Packing a triathlon

    It's not imperative to have an extension, I've packed without one and I have friends that Psycho pack and don't use one...it's just a whole lot easier and less likely to cause a problem to use one...your rigger can make one and install it for a few bucks. I have extensions on both of my canopies and I still Psycho pack. _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!

    Packing a triathlon

    It's a 135...just shake it out and pour it into your D bag! I'm just kidding...but jealous 'cause it's a lot smaller than mine. You should give the Psycho pack a try. _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!

    Skydiving with friends, scared as hell

    Okay Junior, if it'll make you feel better about it...I'm a grandma, 56 years old and have 200+ jumps. I learned on Static Line and I've never done a tandem. Yes, I was scared shitless at first but skydiving is the coolest thing I've ever done and I've done a LOT of cool things in 56 years! _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!

    Packing a triathlon

    I have two Tri's, a '96 model that can easily be flat, pro or psycho packed...and the '06 which was slippery as hell when new and the ONLY way I could get it in the bag was to psycho pack it...I'm old with bad knees so I still psycho pack both canopies. _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!

    Why did you start skydiving?

    Husband jumped while in the Army...blah, blah, blah for 18 years I had to listen to him recall how much he enjoyed the experience and he wanted to jump again. It just scared me...I hate heights. Swore I'd NEVER jump out of an airplane, HA. Did my research online...liked all the backup's etc. so for our 18th anniversary I signed us up for Static Line class. I was totally terrified on the first jump. That was 5 years and 200+ jumps ago. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks! _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!

    Does anyone else watch the cable series WEEDS?

    We just got Showtime last month and I caught this show accidently...I think it a summertime replacement series kinda like HBO's Six Feet Under. Have watched the first two seasons and we like it a lot. In the process of watching the 3rd season courtesy of Netflix. _________________________________________ Old age ain't no place for sissies!
