  1. A load went up on Sunday on it's way home. I was on it. Got video & photo from Leigh W. I live in Camarillo, on the way there that weekend it landed the same time I got there.
  2. Met Bill at Perris, got maybe 2 bad photos somewhere. Helped him get a tire fixed on his Cadillac in town, bought him a glass of milk. And got literature from the Bible stuff he was working on somewhere at home. Also, kept in touch via other emails in the past. Christmas day, huh? Had to post something, always liked him, he seemed to like me too.[email]
  3. Hate to admit it (sort of), But that guy kinda looks like ME. Anyone that met or remembers me, may see what I mean...
  4. In my vhs tapes of his. Wally said not to let anyone copy your video. He had a shotgun in hand too!
  5. Thanks, I will do a name, # etc. Feel free to pm the info! Gary Calhoun
  6. I don't have dvd recorder, just got home computer months ago. In future will get what I need. Thanks tho.
  7. Been wanting to transfer these to DVD, I have lots on several tapes. Been thinking of taking to local places in town that can do it. However, wanted to see if anyone out there could do it for me. I could bring to Perris (ca) and rather spend $ to have a skydiver do it.
  8. QuoteHi Gary! Yeah, it would be great. I could make it there over lunch. Might be enough incentive for me to get current, too. They'll get my support, for sure. I think it's about time for you to get current! LOL. Ouch! Ya hit a soft spot there. I updated my profile after reading that. If this place is for real, I'm there already! As soon as it quits raining. I should do a tandem, tho. I've got feet problems, etc. Keep in touch!
  9. Someone named "Michael" on the phone said they do not land at the airport, they land 3 miles north from there. Must be one of the farm lands out there, close to the Santa Clara river bed or something! I really hope there is one as well. I'll get current w/video and everything next payday!
  10. The photos are real on the website, as far as being in Camarillo,Ca. The directions seem kinda weird pertaining to entering the gate by the Airport Cafe and the actual address being on Durley (would be little bit of a walk) However, I just do not believe for many reasons you will take off, jump land or make a SKydive at the Camarillo Airport. There is no drop zone there, period!
  11. Funny someone brought this up. I live 3 red lights from Camarillo airport. There is no such drop zone there. I drove by there for shits & grins one day at the address advertised. It is where the police cars are parked at! Camarillo is so close to Pt. Mugu I doubt there will ever be a dropzone there. However, demos have been done at the Camarillo Air Show. Gary Calhoun
  12. Lost for words, beside you Chris, Jerry was the only person who video'ed the few CRW jumps I did (1997). Gary Calhoun
  13. I jumped it during a Halloween Boogie 1 year. Got video/stills by Leigh Web. Winds all weekend, took some of us up while it returned to Camarillo,sometime that Sunday afternoon. I live in Camarillo, it has not been there for years. I think it went to France or Switzerland. There is still a Connie here, but not does not fly.
  14. Remember any of this? 1. The bear on the runway, and then ran thru the experienced landing area we were all inside the milkvan thing! 2. And who could ever forget Y-DIVE (300 static line jumps in 1 day), also, the sewer line or something broke!
  15. Wow, I sitting here at work wearing a Cal City jacket, shock to read this! I haven't been there in years, Always had the best times there! I havent jumped in awhile! I got to be static line jumpmaster rating, and did ground control for a while (many years ago). Gary Calhoun
  16. "I hear the Days Inn close by, catty-corner from the Denny's, has really gone down hill." You mean they don't have Spice Channel anymore? I stayed several times at the one in Sun City (weekends), I walk to the bar "Ponderosa" across the lot. they have some good price food, they have a floor. I have always had a good time there.Even met a girl there, and dated a few times when I was in town! Other, than that..I would camp-out at Perris! Don't even drink and drive if you leave the DZ!
  17. Speechless. Bear always welcomed me on his loads, and were the most fun, on the ground and in the plane. Gary Calhoun
  18. My rig and jumpsuit are all from Air Affair. Any more info regarding services?
  19. Have fun! Let me know how ya like the place, I'm in Camarillo. Gary
  20. Thanks for reply to post. I will try to enroll for the Essential 1. in Feb. If not, the next one. I should have checked website before posting! Thank you for your time.
  21. I'm sure it would, but I got to ask openly here this: Can this course benefit someone with a PD-170 canopy. I really don't see myself on a real fast canopy. I have never jumped any 'ellipticals'and I am not ashame to admit, not all my landings are stand-up and really want to be better accuracy for the D-license requirements and all-around, etc. Thank you for your time.
  22. I did one jump there years ago. I did a first jump with a brand new canopy, and it was 100th jump (not freefall, just 100 jumps) And I remember getting pied! I remember seeing you (Lisa) there, you may not remember. Al wanted my all brown Vector container. And female pilot was very nice. I was with friend and his kids on the way to Mid State Fair.
  23. Wow..a year? I don't pm too much. haha pm sent..har har
  24. I just now noticed that there are attached advertisement when sending a pm. Is this new? Any reason behind it?
