  1. Because, despite the fact that it is a "tourist" town, it's actually very quiet. And if you stay on Fern Hill, you can look out over Lake Wakatipu as the sun comes up and it's one of the most beautiful sights you'll ever see. Plus, it's within driving distance of other beautiful locations like Glenorchy, Te Anau and Dunedin. Te Anau not only has the gorgeous lake and glow worm caves, it also has the Fiordlands National Park that's excellent for walking, hiking and/or camping. Plus, I distinctly remember hearing a tandem factory dropping customers near the south end of the lake. Oh, and the people are wonderfully friendly. I didn't have one bad experience in Queenstown and the surrounding areas. Well, unless you count the stomach bug I arrived with.

  2. Queenstown, NZ. No question about it. Kevin - Sonic Beef #5 - OrFun #28 "I never take myself too seriously, 'cuz everybody know fat birds don't fly." - FLC Online communities: proof that people never mature much past high school.

  4. Yes, some... although I'm very rusty... and personally I would have left out the "you"... i.e. "Ah, wakarimasu seneh?" Oh, and I would have gone with, "Demo mada jozu jadi masen." But I'm humble like that.

  6. Normally one would leave off the anatawa, but I left it in to look cool. Kevin - Sonic Beef #5 - OrFun #28 "I never take myself too seriously, 'cuz everybody know fat birds don't fly." - FLC Online communities: proof that people never mature much past high school.

  10. Some people have bad days/weeks/months, and everyone deserves to get a second chance. I know I've been there myself before. Out of curiosity, what would it take to assuage the doubts and frustrations of the people not directly involved?

  11. Without laxative, I don't think I EVER would have escaped that guy's bum. Kevin - Sonic Beef #5 - OrFun #28 "I never take myself too seriously, 'cuz everybody know fat birds don't fly." - FLC Online communities: proof that people never mature much past high school.
  12. Okay, but now to play opposite-side advocate, would those of you who have stated they would take their business elsewhere be appeased and still consider them as a possibility for your suit needs if they made this right for Darktreader? I probably would. I'd like to see this made right for both sides.

  13. I agree. With the amount of competition in that business, you'd figure a vendor wouldn't want to burn any bridges like that. Looks like I'll be looking at Deepseed or Ouragan now.

  15. So you own me...not like I'm gonna do much but sit here and drink until you sell me to some hot woman.

  16. Now I see why pigeons get such a kick out of this. Bombs AWAY! Kevin - Sonic Beef #5 - OrFun #28 "I never take myself too seriously, 'cuz everybody know fat birds don't fly." - FLC Online communities: proof that people never mature much past high school.

  19. I don't know about sky gods and being shot in sight, but I will say that there is a strong likelihood that anyone showing up with an out of date reserve is going to have some fun being a spectator for a while...or packing for cash to pay for the rush job.

  21. Berlin's out...wonder if China's wall needs some shoring up. Kevin - Sonic Beef #5 - OrFun #28 "I never take myself too seriously, 'cuz everybody know fat birds don't fly." - FLC Online communities: proof that people never mature much past high school.
  22. Oh, now see? You just had to go and make me jealous. Do you already have your jesses, lure and hood? I can lend you my copy of "North American Falconry and Hunting Hawks", signed by Frank Beebe himself. Edited to get the book name correct.

  23. Don't worry, my friend. There will be freeflyers of many skill levels there to jump with you. In fact, Trevor Hill and Punisher will be on hand to load organize and work with freeflyers, regardless of skill level. And Steve's right, anyone planning on attending to jump will not want to incur the wrath of either him or Rob by showing up with an out of date rig. I'm hearing that the "rush" fees will be exorbitant.
