    distance from your local DZ?

    I live 1 hr 45 min drive to Skydive Richmond, but now it will just be about 45 minutes via Cessna 172. I haven't been in awhile due to flight training. http://www.brandonandlaura.com

    Richmond ('THE') Boogie

    It's my home DZ and I've been to the boogie twice. Here are my thoughts on it: Physical layout: It is on something like 600 acres with 2 runways (used to be 3). Outside of the airport, almost everywhere is an out. Watch out though, because the corn is HIGH this year. But there are not many trees around. Elevation: 1140' General attitude and feel: To me, it is a very layed back place. If you want to jump hard and heavy, you can definetely do that. My wife and I like to keep our weekends leisurely, so we don't jump hardcore, but than there are others who will make over 10 jumps per day at the boogie. It totally depends on what you want to do. Also, there are always locals that come out to watch, there are food carts (fair type) and then manufactorers in the hanger. It's a great place for pretty much everyone. Beer: I think the beer is included. Have a good time!!! Brandon http://www.brandonandlaura.com

    tie in Usernames to Dropzone Listings

    Gus, that is a good idea, however it seems there would have to be some type of limit. Some folks would choose 20 DZs that they have jumped at or something like that. Perhaps have 3 slots dedicated to your "home DZs" and then another place they could type in other places. I am seeing this as more of a search tool and such. Just my .02. HH.. any thoughts? http://www.brandonandlaura.com

    tie in Usernames to Dropzone Listings

    If you have 3 home DZs, just pick the one you most frequent or closest to your house. If you travel for most, pick the one you travel to the most. I see this for people who want to travel to another state and know who jumps there. I think it would rule. http://www.brandonandlaura.com

    tie in Usernames to Dropzone Listings

    Hmm... can this be done? I'm sure that this would be a very long and tedious project to get done, but would there be a way to have users select their dropzone from a drop-down list (perhaps cascading based on the previous drop down menu... e.g. N. America-->USA-->Ohio-->Select DZ) instead of just typing in their Dropzone? If you could do that, you could automatically make their Dropzone a hyperlink to the dropzone. But, here is my great idea: When you actually go to the Dropzone Listing, you would see ALL of the Dropzone.com members that list that dropzone as their Home DZ. I travel a lot and it would be great to know who to contact for info or whatever on the local DZ. Just a thought. I know it would be a lot of work on your part and all members would have to go back into their profile and "fix" their home DZ. Just a thought. -Brandon http://www.brandonandlaura.com

    Unable to post in certain forums. What's wrong?

    There's a "Talk Back broken" thread in this forum. There's also a discussion in Suggestions and Feedback. Reading those firt would be greatly appreciated. Well, I didn't think it was supposed to be that way, so my brain said "error". So... to the error forum I went. And, I didn't see anything in Annoucements. Seems like a good place to put that a whole forum is down. Blues to ya Sangiro, B http://www.brandonandlaura.com

    Pilot Job?

    I guess I should address this message to the most high strung person I know (holy shit): There was a guy at the DZ who said the only reason he flew the 182's at the DZ was to build time for his career. He was in the commercial program in Indy and needed to build time. He did so by flying many loads there. You need to fuckin chill out, Chris. Just because you are an ATP and have been flying many hours for jumpers doesn't mean you have the last and final say in everything. God damn. Fly for free. Just go ahead. Fly for free. Then I will hunt you down and will [said through clinched teeth]CUT YOU!!! Have a nice day. http://www.brandonandlaura.com
