  1. Have seen a video of pro flyer Olga Bakulina from Russia flying in a tunnel wearing a skirt and blouse.
  2. Well produced and explained tunnel freestyle skills tutorials by Olga Bakulina - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUCDYvUdgyE&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR11-OwzOViG0C1jbaSzsleqdEATDgtvjTIL-_ctMJ_YBQ7olA2H93H9QoU
  3. Under heading on banner titled "discover" I clicked "contact" https://www.prageru.com/contact/ and saw the organization name "Prager University Foundation".
  4. Isn't the full name "Prager University Foundation" - Foundation keyed me into it was something other than a real university - they R on a slippery ethical slope. What would the problem been to just name it Prager Foundation - seems like everyone has to spin these days even if it isn't necessary.
  5. Tailbone strike was my 1st painful result from bodyflight. Kind of funny - as I whined to tunnel employees about it a few confided they had also hit tailbones on wall - I'd go for a full padded suit if they made them.
  6. OBTW after a good bit of research I found that G-Form pads were best for me in tunnel. Had 1 extremely hard elbow strike on wall (sounded like the crack of a home run hit thru the G3 and earplugs) with zero pain whatsoever - they worked well. One mistake I made was waiting until I had a tailbone strike against the wall w/o pads b4 getting them. G-Form's snowboarding compression shorts have well located hip and tailbone pads IMHO. Just a word to the wise.
  7. I know this feeling - got into tunnel flight and Happily Hooked at a family reunion in Orlando Fla aboout 5 years ago at age 65. Have 13 hours under the belt now and it keeps getting better. Lots of continuous stretching daily helped me not be sore after flying. Knee, elbow and hip pads defend against the wall as you progress to more challenging skills. Maybe check International Bodyflight Association (IBA) skills progression sequencing that builds upon each skill. You can register to keep track of your hours and skills development. Best of luck to U.
  8. When I was in the military we got comp time off at a ratio of 1 1/2 days off for one day overtime worked. We liked that deal - maybe the recent participants had a similar program.
  9. Don't know much about all this but did watch a Public Television documentary (1 hour) about wildlife existing at Chernobyl since the melt down. Wildlife are flourishing all over the area that has been evacuated and closed off for however long. Trul amazing to see even previously very rare endangered species (cross of horse and elk - just a weird big ungulate) thriving and multiplying like rabbits. As per the documentary there hadn't been any of the dire ill effects predicted for humans impacting wildlife of the area - made me think that maybe the humans didn't need to be relocated but I don't know much on nuclear side effects. Maybe someone else saw this program and can shed more light on if it was accurate.
  10. Hello Meso, You R the man - signed in with Internet Explorer and all seems to be well as per the ability to reply here. A pc savvy friend of mine had me update Firefox in order to download adblock on to it. Maybe the problem is with the latest version of Firefox or having adblock blocking popups. Any ideas on that? Can't believe I figured out to do a word document to work around the problem to communicate with you. Don't want to do it again or all the time though. Thanks again for the tip. Frank
  11. I was referring to the sport of avoidance not "evasion" - seldom have I heard from friends or acquaintances that they don't mind leaving $$$ on the table for IRS. Thanks for the link. Now I get it.
  12. Where does the word "shall" come from to be significant here? Just Curious
  13. Come on folks - no matter what side one is on - let's be real - Tax Avoidance is a National sport in America. Nobody in government or elsewhere seems to care about National debt - that beat will keep going until our financiers pull the $$$ plug -
