    Tandem Toggle Lock ... quasi-incident

    Sounds like a typical day hauling meat to me! I am fairly small for a tandem master 5"6 and 155 pounds. The people especially in Alabama seem to be getting bigger by the week! Climbing out of a C-182 with someone 230 LBS and 6'2" plus is a challenge. Then you get the girls that are built wide as they are tall and large "mammalian protuberances" No matter how you adjust the harness they seem to "OOZE" through it and end up sick! I am learning to just say "NO"! Hope you have a better weekend ahead! Thanks for the heads up!

    Mongo

    R.I.P. Mongo! Thank you for taking me under your wing and putting me on some great loads in the early 90's. Blue Skies!
  3. Many years have passed since the accident at Taft! Although I was just a 14 year old kid. I am forever grateful how Lea Van Pelt : Gary Kreibel and Brady Saunders befriended my Dad and taught him to jump. as a result my Dad and I became best friends. I can't imagine my life without skydiving and flying!
