  1. Remember doing "door jams" next to the toilets at Perris? Teams wore protective gear (shin guards, arm guards) to protect those being dragged out the door with the chunk.
  2. "practice vest"??? i know someone with a circa 2004 vector, complete with ragged out PD210 and pillow in the reserve container. includes both handles i'm sure he'd send to you for shipping costs. located in san diego
  3. I first met Ken circa 1981 when he was doing video / film for Perris Valley Visions. I was a student and would occasionally be in the same DC3 as them and would watch their exits in wonder. A few months later I bought my first non-round canopy, a double keel paradactyl from Ken that Visions was selling as they moved to squares. Fast forward to 2018ish, I saw Ken at an event at Perris, (Pat Works memorial) and as we chatted we discovered we lived ~ 1 1/2 miles apart. I would stop by occasionally to say hi. I rode by his house yesterday and was told that he died in Jan 2021 from COVID related issues. Blue Skies Ken.
  4. listen to the current skydive radio podcast. good info there.
  5. Since the thread is revived. I've seen Sandy utilize his graduated cylinder and mass place on top of nylon to measure volume. that was m a n y years ago in perris.
  6. understood. I'm 65" / 140 pounds. I stopped competing when I needed to wear 30+ pounds of lead. Many CReW jumpers are large.
  7. A Large TS shirt? That must be one of the smaller sizes. GRIN!
  8. Funny stuff my friend, but it was El Toro to Perris. I was an air wing marine, not a ground pounder. Be well.
  9. Perris extended the paved runway ~ 400 feet last week. Primarily just because it was a good idea, but also to facilitate DC9 ops. Still lottsa items to cross off the checklist, but Pat is making progress. I predict November 2021 activity, but I can be an optimist.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. Was just in Eugene / Corvalis area. I [email protected] Skydive Eugene, since on the way home. Very friendly people, but tandem focus and 182s = a no go. Jerry, thanks for the PM. Be well. Hey bicyclejim, check this out. I have lottsa steel is real roadie bikes. small sample here
  11. I've been to Mollala and "Ask Ralph (for my second 1st jump). but decades ago. Where do you like for mellow good vibes and safe airplanes (not much tandem activity a plus). Thanks Craig
  12. the issue continues, I've seen it nearly every other day for the past 2 - 3 weeks. Just FYI, i'm not a network admin and can't help, though it seems like many on this board have offered to do so.
  13. I recently saw the video of the ripcord initiated, spring loaded pilot chute deployment while wingsuiting. It was informative. The pilot and viddy owner is aware of this thread. Perhaps he'll post a link. Be well. Craig
  14. Pretty scenery Suspect flying BIG Planet AAD save # X (times 2)
  15. Thank you for your advice / censorship. Please read my post carefully. I am not advocating spring loaded pilot chute use for wingsuiting, but I know someone that does and he is likely more experienced than you. It works for him, likely not for the vast majority of jumpers.
