  1. Cliff, I am so sad to read that you left us... I have spent so many fun week-end jumping in your company, so many hours discussing with you about the pro and cons of different skydiving equipments or teaching techniques, so many hours talking with and sharing with others our mutual love for skydiving. And I have never got a chance to thank you for always being available for us, fellow skydivers... from the best way to fill out the student log book to leading us for the sunset tracking dive. BlueSky Cliff, see you up there. Gwen You can't determine the length of your life - but you can control its height and depth.
  2. No... Do you ? How about the backyard of one of our dropzone ? You can't determine the length of your life - but you can control its height and depth.
  3. I always wanted to try taking off a hill / cliff with my parachute... the paraglider way. Is there anything I should know before trying it ? Advice welcome
  4. KerMor

    Byron Boogie?

    Count me in to join the fun
  5. I'll be driving from the South Bay Area to Elsimore on Friday night. I will go by Elsimore on Saturday for one or two jumps. If anyone wants to donate gear or other, it will be a pleasure for me to carry it over. I have a big trunk. PM me for details and picking up arrangements ... I can stop by Hollister on the way. spread the word.... Doing my best to help, KerMor You can't determine the length of your life - but you can control its height and depth.
  6. feel that heat on your back ......its a lightsaber if I found it myself ... I hope it is less of a crime ... but it was over 1 year ago ... I was not even registered at that time I save you the search Sorry You can't determine the length of your life - but you can control its height and depth.
  7. That has to be it ... he was on all my jumps ... I am sure he wanted to get closer to The Mountain faster You can't determine the length of your life - but you can control its height and depth.
  8. How come our hybrids always funnel ?!? and our RW ?!? and even a tracking dive ... go and figure out how did I get such a great close shot Last week-end was a blast ... So are we the only one to get such great jumps ? You can't determine the length of your life - but you can control its height and depth.

EXCERPTS FROM A CAT'S DAILY DIARY: Day 183 of My Captivity: My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant. Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded; I must try this at the top of the stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair, must try this on their bed. Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in an attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was. Hmmm, not working according to plan. There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary confinement throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the food. More importantly, I overheard that my confinement was due to my power of "allergies." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage. I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird, on the other hand, has got to be an informant, and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room, his safety is assured. But I can wait, it is only a matter of time...

  10. I should probably not get involved in that given my little knowledge of the situation on the field, but I think this article has been mis-read. French and American culture are radically different on that specific point. France in a 'Laique' country. This means that in all public places there is no place for religious item, political items or anything that would refer to a specific group of the population. This is now true for school as well: no crucifix, no shaddor, ... To my best knowledge, this law has been very well accepted by most of the French, only integrists rejected it (Islamic and Catholics alike). He might have rejected it, but these two dates are now official school holidays in France. For those of you that read French and are interested in French/American culture differences, here is an excellent study: Comprendre les Américains pour comprendre les Français Note: For once, I think the French government took a right decision.
