  1. And the rounded door made it impossible to have much of an exit. I remember once being inside watching a 4-way exit -- I think it was flyangel who had both of her feet standing right on top of everybody else's when she gave the count. Mustard is right, the door is rounded and hard to get that many jumpers out. Not to mention how cold that plane is in the winter time. I say stay with an Otter
  2. I looked at your position close to the base, it looks like a good one. Let's hope he brought plenty of weights with him Bill, be safe and I look forward to your posting.

  3. I too was one of the voters that has already sent my ballot in. After reading the forums I knew I had voted the right way
  4. Yea, but if you'll notice, I'm still a newbie Give Shonda and Nick a hug from me. Did Nick get a real job yet or is Shonda supporting him?

  5. Being with a group of jumpers that are all working towards the same goal in the same environment is the way to go. (less distractions than if you are at your home DZ) You'll learn more than just how to fly your body with the seminars they offer. Plus the tunnel time is a great way to learn. (two minutes of flying time compared to 60 seconds) The flight times in the tunnel are divided into blocks so you don't get too tried. I have close to 3000 skydives and wish there had been these kinds of events when I was first learning. It sure would have saved me a ton of frustration.

  6. Is this the Broox that I meet at Mile-Hi in Colorado years ago? May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. - Edward Abbey
  7. What a great idea, thanks. That would sure save Tony some time, since he's so busy trying to organize the event. (last time the event happen, poor Tony spent more time picking and dropping jumpers off at the airport.) Not to mention save some of us out of towners money on car rentals.

  8. Well, since I'm well over 25, and no I won't tell my real age, I'd be willing to do the rental and we can split the cost. May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. - Edward Abbey
  9. Quote It's funny being a newbie! reply] It's taking me some time to figure it out too. Don't you think, in a way it's better to be the new kid newbie) on the block? This way nobody will take us serious May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. - Edward Abbey
  10. Yes, and a good time was had by all. I suggest that anyone, cancer survivor or not, come to the event. Tony did a great job organizing the event and the positive vibe was like electricity. Not to mention how nice it was to meet other cancer survivors and share experiences. Only another survivor can relate to the humor and the sorrow experienced while going through cancer treatments. It was great meeting all those people that had the same fighting spirit I had.

    Michael, I'm so glad that you posted something about the jump. Neil worked hard to be able to pull this stunt off. No need to post the video, I saw it live. Way to go Snug Fit. Snug said it was his first balloon jump, and brought beer. But did he really do a balloon jump? I think not, he rappled first, so really, there wasn't a jump involved. I guess that means more beer when Snug really does his first balloon jump. May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.

  12. Okay, now I know who you are, we contacted eachother through e-mail once before. Sorry, I didn't go and look at your personal information to find out your name. Hope to see you there, we had a great time last year. May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.

  14. I'm surprised that Tony hasn't gotten back to you. I don't think Tony knows when the dates are, but as soon as he knows, I'm sure he will let everyone that is on the CSWR team know. E-mail him again. May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. - Edward Abbey
