  1. That is what she is flying now. I'm more looking for splitting up a 30 minute block with anyone looking to do so. Thanks! -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  2. Hi all, My daughter is new in her tunnel career - 8 years old about 50 minutes now. Looking for anyone interested in sharing time. Gracias -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  3. Its been sixty days now since I had to sell my gear. So many memories. So many amazing people. Scratch, Mad John, the sixty year old dude from canada that got me higher than I've ever been before without an airplane and WITH a gas mask at lost prarie, fish, toad, rella, greg, gnarles. Fuck i miss you people. NickDG. So many amazing people, too little time on this plane and plane. I read some shit today on dz.com, mainly the incidents. For some reason I read those alot back in the day, now too. Come on people, keep your wits, dont be in a hurry, chill out and enjoy the bonfires as much if not more than the day of jumping. Again, chill out and don't be in a hurry. The sport isn't really going anywhere, no need to swoop with 100 or freefly with 50. take your time. ENJOY - it can dissappear before you even know what you have. i miss you all DEARLY. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  4. I, being the lazy MF that I am, didnt take this into account until AFTER I posted. I officially admit to being a jerk off poster and owe the thread owner a dinner or four, plus many local beers and spirits. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  5. Yah especially when you don't have any relative wind to work with. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  6. Other than the fact that gravity will eat you up when you are free climbing - there is nothing equivalent between that and base jumping. Not one thing. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  7. More people do shit to be looked at as cool then to feel good inside. That is the bottom line. It is part of our culture, ingrained into our tiny little heads from early on. Its those that break out of the mold and do things for them and them only that really impress me. And in reply to "you gotta believe most peiople arent assholes", maybe i'm just getting old and cynical but shit, i honestly cant remember this last time someone just plain saying, "hows it goin" or waving after you let them merge in front of you. That shit seems to have gone the wayside. Maybe I just need to get out and jump more. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  8. If the winds were what they were, this statement holds some water imho. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  9. nice don't forget the satanic metal sub-group. that goes over well with most clients. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  10. yay! publicity!! -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  11. Not just in Canada. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  12. Ditto, here chill out - smoke this. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  13. Yah so then he sits there as many mornings as he can squeeze in just waiting - with a firearm no less, sounds like a plan to me... -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  14. thuh innerneht is cool -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  15. I had twelve jumps. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  16. Words cannot convey how impressive what you did is. I've done my share of mountaineering, but man, that is a whole new level of survival and existence. MAD props rigger Lee. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  17. Right on right on, she said "a" beer hah. What is this moderation you speak of.
  18. Word to that - squeak is my brother just like the rest of the jumpers in the world. That will be the thing I miss most about this sport - the varied cross section of folks we get to meet. I'm being honest here. I miss going to the dropzone and being able to have these types of discussions - it isn't about being right or wrong, but just hanging out and being able to do just that, hang out with family edited to add: and talk shit. My two year old doesn't really get it when I talk shit to her yet -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  19. And with that folks... We have a winner. Man - I came so close. I'll just have to try harder next time. Oh and don't forget - count your nipples squeak, you just never know. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  20. No prob. This was definately a great conversation. I will cherish it to my death bed. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  21. Sweet. Have a great life my friend. I hope it is as good to you as you deserve. Karma is a bitch, trust me. Oops forgot the wink! There, now its alllllll better. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  22. It means that even though you are being a total asshole, I would still lend you my rig, buy you a beer, get off the plane if it was one too heavy so you could do your skydive, give you a ride from the airport having never met you, show you my secret exit points etc etc etc. The word kindness ring a bell? -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  23. Hey right on. I even have your back. Sorry if I'm coming across as "sensative". A) I just lost my dog of 13 years. B) I was just forced to sell all of my gear and say goodbye to a sport that was damn good to me. All of this in a matter of days. Sorry - I'll work on it - you are totally right. -- (N.DG) "If all else fails – at least try and look under control." --
  24. The more and more I think about your post - the more and more I'm with you (-: I know where you are coming from and what you are trying to say - you are only trying to create a better living environment for folks - I applaud that. It was the HOW THE F that threw me off a bit because I could have easily done the same thing. You and I are on the same team here - I'm sorry for getting testy. I am also sincerely sorry for your loss - I simply cannot imagine. Losing my backcountry partner/dog was hard enough. Although I'm greatful for feeling his last breath leave him, it plain old sucked and still does. Regardless - you bring up very good points, organzing a bottle drawere in a "rigger" like fashion could take someone simply ten minutes and could save a life - I think that is the best bottom line. Brings up an interesting thing - I have a tough time keeping track of my two year old and six month old, but the more effort I can put towards that - the better. I thank you for that and again apologize if I seemed rude - that was not my intent. You are a sister of mine in this large family of skydiving, I would have your back as you are showing to have mine, always. Even if I don't put on the rig for ten years, the brothers and sisters here are always my family. On a lighter note - this shit is hilarious if you think about it. The lesson of the day?
