  1. I worked the Mike Zang record also. I packed for 10 hours straight (and I hate packing). I was exhausted and I can't imagine how tired Mike was. Ryder Take chances, just do it with all the information to make good decisions!! Muff Brother# 2706 Dudeist Skydiver# 121.5
  2. It's not an explosive, it's a pyrotechnic cutter. I tell them it's a pair of fingernail clipper like devices. Take chances, just do it with all the information to make good decisions!! Muff Brother# 2706 Dudeist Skydiver# 121.5
  3. I live in Texas, but work for a company in Vista. I am there 6 time a year. Count me in!!! I'l be there. Ryder Take chances, just do it with all the information to make good decisions!! Muff Brother# 2706 Dudeist Skydiver# 121.5
  4. When I first started jumping I wore glasses. I had prescription goggles and I also had a Oxygen A-1. Both were fine options. The A-1 fit over my glasses easily. 10 yrs ago I had lasic surgery and now I wear sunglasses under my A-1. Try on several helmets before dropping a bundle one one. Demo one if you can. Have fun.

  5. That would be a really sucky scenario... I guess it boils down to a personal decision on the person who sees you. It is a question that not many people have had to face. I will stand by my decision.............. I am VERY confident of what MY decision would be and I would back that up with my experience and my flying skills which include some pretty damn good altitude awareness and ability to catch people. I do have a very good chance of catching up to almost anyone Yeah that would be a sucky thing. And I wouldn't commit suicide to try, but I WOULD try. I've seen too much death in my life. I know what I could live with and what I couldn't. I could live with failing, I couldn't with not trying if there was a hope that I might catch them. Just my feelings. Your milage may vary.

  6. I'm crazy for their Ice Tea. I've been out of town for a week and had to hurry back to get my vote in. Ryder Take chances, just do it with all the information to make good decisions!! Muff Brother# 2706 Dudeist Skydiver# 121.5
  7. I'm just lucky I married a woman hornier than me. Never been cut off, but after 3 kids and 20 yrs, sometimes it gets pushed to the back burner for both of us. Sometimes I say " I'm tired and you take too long" Take chances, just do it with all the information to make good decisions!! Muff Brother# 2706 Dudeist Skydiver# 121.5
  8. I'm surprised JohnMitchell hasn't chimed in on this discussion yet - he had to make that very decision last year. http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=3636677 Bear in mind that the two people involved in this save both have 20+ years and 4000+ jumps and multiple instructor ratings. They had the skill and experience to pull this off (and in this case, the altitude as well). As skybytch has pointed out, that may not always be the case, and in a different situation with different players (or an unconscious victim who is much more unstable) things can end very differently and very badly. I'm sure you didn't mean to imply that those of us less experienced that John and Jeff should do nothing if ever in that situation. I'm sure you were just encouraging us to be careful. P.S. John and Jeff are heros! Ryder Take chances, just do it with all the information to make good decisions!! Muff Brother# 2706 Dudeist Skydiver# 121.5

  12. Could also do a giant ant. When people look like ants, that's good when ants look like people that's bad. Take chances, just do it with all the information to make good decisions!! Muff Brother# 2706 Dudeist Skydiver# 121.5
  13. Believe The jump in question is #6. SB that video is incredible. I have more jumps and don't always fly that well. They really learned a lot in a short period of time. Where was the course?

  14. Try this. She'd look good from 1000 ft. Take chances, just do it with all the information to make good decisions!! Muff Brother# 2706 Dudeist Skydiver# 121.5
  15. When she called and asked if she could show them, she said you were begging to see them and payed money! Banned for paying money to see P"n"s pics. No you missed it...I paid NOT to see them!!! Your banned! Statuate of limitations has run out - 4 years ago every one with a phone got those . . . Why you wanted to pay good jump money for them . . . that is your thing . . . But you are still banned for buying PA pics. OK! I lose, but I had never seen anything that small and even though I heard about it, I had to see it for myself....It's a train wreck... I didn't believe anything that small could exist!!!! Take chances, just do it with all the information to make good decisions!! Muff Brother# 2706 Dudeist Skydiver# 121.5
