  1. I think that photo was taken by Charles Lane at Skydive Chicago's Summerfest in 2007.
  2. I can't believe it. Every year at Quicy, then Rantoul, Todd was the constant bigger than life presence in the organizer tents. He was the kind of guy you could see only at a boogies each year, but it was like you knew him your whole life. An easy friend. He was my image of what an athlete in this sport could aspire to, ever since I started out. Rest in peace brother. Blue skies.

    No, thank you! It was a great boogie, and with the perfect weather I managed to make 26 jumps, a personal best for Dollar Daze. And thanks to Larry and Tom from Skydive Dallas for organizing RW!
  4. I learned from his friends at Couch Freaks that Orlando has regained the powers of speech suddenly and has been able to stand up and participate in physical therapy and speech therapy.
  5. He was helicoptered to Peoria, IL, I believe. I don't know which specific hospital. They weren't releasing any information except to family, and family had to fly in from PR, I believe.
  6. For those that don't know, Orlando suffered head trauma after being thrown from a golf cart after hours at Summerfest. I'm looking for any updates on his condition from anyone that knows. And send your prayers and/or best wishes for his full recovery.
