  1. It was mid-90's here in Az. Mike B was the TI. Mike spent 2 weeks in a coma. The passengers son was flying camera. He went though the main on deployment fracturing his moms neck. To the original poster, Have your friend do his tandem, get his license, then you 2 can have all sorts of stupid fun! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!"

  2. Where are you located? I know a couple of dogs! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  3. I once broke my toe while landing, a very serious incident! Do I blame the company that made the canopy, or the company that owns the DZ, or the manufacture of the sandals I was wearing, or mother nature for putting the rock in my way? No I blame the 50 jump wonder who was flying the canopy! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  4. I got home from the DZ on Sat. to find my GF buying Thin Mints! What a great day! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  5. Ron, outstanding thread btw! I was on a coach jump...we were last to leave...saw how far out we were...gave the finger(pull) about 1000 ft early. Saw my student open...then pitched at 4000. @ 1800 ...my canopy opened. Lucky it was facing towards the DZ. Only 8 line twist (on video) cleared @ 1300 and wasn't spinning. I made 1turn @100ft to final. The opening was so hard my ringsite broke my nose and hip ring brused my back. Should have hit reserve at 3 ish. Kids if you feel it going to poo...don't wait!!! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  6. When at 1st you don't succeed.....TRY,TRY again?!! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  7. We all live on borrowed time. Love your friends while you have them. Last night I pulled out an old log book and laughed my ass off!!! My phone hasn't stopped for two days from friends that I haven't talked to in a year or more! All of them are in that book! I'm so glad I kept a record, not only for the jump #'s, but for the memories! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  8. I've pushed test drops out of that plane! Loud as fuck.....well Jim is when he's yelling at you!! Planes loud too!!! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  9. He was a good skydiver and....until the drugs kicked in...a great friend. As skydivers knew him as "Cable Guy"! So many great times! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  10. Thanks bro! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  11. My good friend made a bad choice! http://www.dcourier.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=1086&ArticleID=125565 I wish Larry would have called me before it got to this point! We had over 100 jumps together! Sorry...I dont know how to make it colicky! Lil help please! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  12. OK, #1 Do you have any bones sticking out? Are you alive? Then you did not FAIL! So you need to repeat a level....big deal! You get to hang off a plane in flight again! COOL!!! #2 Is it possible you de-arched while looking for the handle? Many students do. Hold your arch! Watch the plane fly away while you pull, that will keep your head up. Plus it looks really cool when you see your instructor with a shit eating grin on their face! #3 if you miss the 1st time try a 2nd time but dont look down! #4 HAVE FUN!!! Your jumping put of a plane!!! Who the hell gets to do that?!! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  13. He's now down by 9 votes! For the love of Beer God ...VOTE!!! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
  14. Funny thing, radios normally work fine until about 50ft. Then not at all until just after landing! ---------------------------------------------- "Thats not smoke, thats BUCKEYE!!" AQR#3,CWR#49
