  1. Hi Tim, I remember Steve King. I also remember how good your teams "Considerable Difficulty" and "Eclipse" were. I remember Steve as pretty cocky. But, I guess if you're wearing some of the first gold medals in CRW around your neck (or actually on a plaque, remember), and you're three times the size of everyone around you, you can afford to be a little cocky. I recall the barbs that went back and forth between our California team and you guys from Washington. We had the greatest respect for you guys. I jumped with one of your old teammates a couple of years ago, Doug Scofield. He mentioned that Steve was into the snowmobile thing. We lost Bear a little over two years ago; another big guy in CRW.

  2. I do. I received a couple of those bills from the '92 CRW World Record jumps in Washington. I gave a couple of them to the pizza guy as a tip. The pizza place called me later and said they were counterfeit.
  3. Hi Pasi, Participants in the four-by-side were: J.P. McCann, Jack Stein, Terry Parsons and Harlen Bradley. The photo of it was taken by Bob "Space" Atkins. crewdog2
  4. Here's the patch Gary gave out for BCRW. Russ Pinney BCRW #7
  5. As has been said, be aware of others around you even as your canopy is deploying. Be prepared to make a hard riser turn and pull your legs up to avoid a strike. Leave the hook knife in its pouch until you actually need it. If an impact with another jumper, or going through his lines is unavoidable, I put my hands up to shield my face. As I do this, I pull my arms in close to my sides to shield my handles. Stay safe.
  6. Goodbye old friend. I will remember the good times we had.
  7. Quote From my slot, it was very large and impressive.
  8. Of course it was. Reality is no match for my imagination.
  9. Oh I can thank my buddy Frank for about five of those. That's why he's been packing my reserve for free for the last 16 years.
  10. QuoteThat's a good point as well - I've been cocooned so tightly by Ken Oka that all I could do was wiggle my toes and hope he understood that meant cutaway! Funny story: While participating in the 38-Way Record jumps in '92 we had a funnel on one of the dives and eight of us were entangled. We hung in there and everyone got spit out. Later that night while camping out on the dz I had a CRW nightmare. In the dream I was cocooned in five canopies and everyone cutaway to save there own asses. My arms were locked down to my sides and all I could do was squirm and yell all the way in. I startled awake to find myself all twisted up in my sleeping bag.
  11. Chris, I don't see a line snag issue with this type of altimeter. As for where to mount the altimeter, I have always preferred the chest because in a wrap I am usually busy with my arms and wouldn't be able to read it if wasn't mounted on my chest. I've been deep in the shit a couple of times where the only thing I could see was my chest-mounted altimeter. -Russ

  13. Quote I don't think they went out the windshield. A teammate and buddy of mine was flying right seat. He told me that he and the pilot ( I think it was Skip, might be wrong ) went out of the forward hatch. He told me he was considering jumping off the nose until he realized how high it was. Both pilots ran down the fuselage and jumped off the tail. Correct me if I'm wrong.
