    Weakening new velcro

    Just prime it before you jump unless it's a terminal jump. It will eventully start to wear. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"

    Full face BASE helmet

    Look at the BELL Bellistic. I really like mine. Just take the visor off. http://www.bellbikehelmets.com/productDetail.asp?prodID=6 "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"

    I hate wind

    This has been the most windy year here in the midwest in the past seven years. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"
  4. Bring the list back Nick. As Mr. Spock use to say,"The needs of the many out way the needs of the FEW"!! "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"

    Would YOU want your name on the WBFL?

    You can put me on there. We are all going to die. What the hell is the difference. I'm not SELFISH, if someone can learn from my mistake then please let them learn. Or we can just see if more people die without the list. I guess some jumpers would prefer that. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"

    Canopy sizes

    310 Black Jack with composite upper skin. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"
  7. I'm with Ray on this one. Hell, I've thought about sending Nick my best BASE pic just in case I end up on the list myself. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"

    Terminal PC

    So what's the latest scoop on terminal PC size. I can still count my number of terminal jumps on my hands and toes. I've used a BR 36" F111 with fine mesh with good results. I just got a 32"ZP AV with large mesh from Asylum Designs which I'm dying to try out. So all you big wall jumpers, what's working best for you?

    Hey BASE Parents...

    In my opinion your doing the right thing by letting her know what you do. My daughter was 5 when I started BASE jumping and now she is 16. But if I am killed or injured on a BASE jump she knows why I do what I love and that I tried to be as safe a possible. NOT, thinking that I had some stupid wild hair idea and got myself killed.

  10. Thats because you can walk on walls with your FOX. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"
  11. I'm with you on that also. DaveO USMC 1984-89 3rd Recon Bn 1986-89 I was a ParaFrog too. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"
  12. It's a lot of fun! Isn't that right NickDG. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"

    Remember HIM . . . ?

    Right on Tom!! Lifes to short to drink that crap. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"

    Wing Loading

    Currently,... Black Jack/ACE 280 @ .76 Black Jack 310 @ .68 All canopies have composite uppper skin. I prefer the 280 size over the 310. The drag on a 310 foot lightly loaded canopy is a lot if there is any kind of wind. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"
  15. Extraction time, and time it takes to pressurize both seem to play a role. "When it comes to BASE, I'll never give advice, only my opinion"
