  1. I'm not gonna make it this year. Been fighting constant migraines for a month now Somebody make sure to smack Rick Reams on the ass for me? If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  2. This shift is seriously draggin it's ass. Only 18 hours till I'm done and can get on the road to go hang out with a bunch of assholes. Never thought I'd say that and be happy about it instead of sarcastic. If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  3. Speaking as last year's greased cannonball of the group... BRING IT!! If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  4. Wouldn't miss it! I'll be driving down Friday once I get offduty. If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  5. I see the chutingstar account has posted here too, but going to say this anyways... Call their main number and leave them a message. They will definitely call you back. I worked with Laura last year on purchasing a complete (new) rig and I think there was only 1 time I didn't have to leave a message. It was still a smooth experience to work with them. If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  6. You're actually gonna make it this year? Bring it on speed racer!!! I couldn't get out of work thursday, so I'll be driving down when I get offduty friday morning. If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  7. Always wanted to fly but getting my pilot's license is way too expensive so I figured why not jump out of 'em if I can't fly 'em? That, and running into burning buildings doesn't scare my mom any more. Gotta keep her on her toes! If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  8. I bet she'll be in bed before any shenanigans start. The boogie is actually pretty tame for the most part. Well, except for the guys who wear corsets to jump, but that's mostly just disturbing! I'd be way more worried about the 5' inflatable dick than any kind of corsets. If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  9. So, who wants to break the news to him that surviving a malfunction as a tandem student still won't get him that elusive gold statue? If you can't convince them, keep them confused.

    Deep throat...

    I had mine out 6 months ago and have no regrets. The first week of healing was easy, then I decided it'd be a great idea to nibble my way through a hamburger. Don't make my mistake! That burger was so damn good, but so not worth it! LOL It took me about 3 weeks before my energy started to really come back. I slept so much and was just physically drained the whole time, probably from the liquid/soft diet. Hope you heal quickly and fully
  11. I flew from Atlanta to LA, and Sacramento to Atlanta with my rig as carryon a few months ago. I just had it in a homemade rigsleeve and dropped it on the conveyor at the TSA checkpoint. Atlanta swabbed the 3-rings and then handed it back to me, Sac didn't care at all. I had my cypress card and a pullup cord just in case (not a rigger, so I'd have argued some about popping the reserve), but it was really a non-event. Your biggest issue, depending on the size of the rig and the size of the aircraft, will be fitting it in overhead storage. If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  12. It's a good thing that nobody ever weighs more than 200 lbs in full battle rattle with a ruck and jump gear then. If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  13. I'm kinda in with this mindset. If nothing else, find out his actual build and consider putting him through ground school with heavy PLF emphasis (throw him in a tandem rig if you have to). If nothing else, send him to a tunnel. He can learn many of the basics, especially stability, and will also learn about his fall rate. If he's a jabba, the tunnel will give him an idea of the level of fitness he'll need. If he's a brick shithouse, it can show him the flexibility he'll need (some muscleheads can't reach the BOC and he can do practice pulls in the tunnel). Either way, as long as he signs the waiver... If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
  14. Crappy weather couldn't stop the fun. Plus, ya know, there's always coffee beans... If you can't convince them, keep them confused.
