  1. Easy now...the art of tracking has improved significantly in the past 30 years. Back in the day the idea was to get as much speed as possible and convert that into horizontal movement. I can definitely attest to having been slammed by dumping in a track. You could even hear it from the ground when people used to open at 2 grand. Kind of a "crack" followed by several folks giving it a woooh!
  2. Correct. I had 2 reserve rides over lost puds. Still a Racer fan but it does appear they have been moved off to the bin with lame responses to problems like the one in the vid. Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne
  3. I guess you didn't get the memo. This type of thing is considered sexist here now and isn't tolerated Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne

  5. Completely normal. Carry on. Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne
  6. Not a cutaway. My first was a pull out floater on an old SST rig (Struggle Struggle Thump). Long story short I tried to get the floating pud a bit too long. When I dumped my 26' LoPo reserve the pilot chute didn't clear my burble right away. Line stretch finally ~600 ft. Emotions? It changed the sport completely for me. I now knew I probably wouldn't brainlock and die. It was a real confidence boost. I had to go to dinner that night with my first wife and her sister. It was there that I decided my life was too short to be unhappy. All I could think about was being where people could understand what I'd just experienced. I left her shortly after.

  7. Launched a 4-way out of a Beech 18 at 2,300 ft on a cloudy day. Tracking away from a formation and followed a friend into clouds. When he reappeared we were both getting line stretch about 20 feet apart. Fortunately he was facing away from me. I bounced off his container and flew away. Sea Breezes Floater on a pull out Racer...messed around too long trying to find it. That was followed by a weak launch of my reserve PC resulting in a hesitation. In the saddle at 600ft. I could go on... Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne
  8. Tough week. His books changed jumping for me. Amazing ability to take what he saw, thought, and felt and put it on paper for everyone to enjoy. Thank you. Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne
  9. I don't believe Ed's comments helped either. "Skydiving will never be a perfectly safe thing to do," said Ed Scott, executive director of the USPA, a nonprofit organization which works with state and federal officials to promote skydiving safety. "If you don't find a location listed on our site, you don't know what you're getting, you don't know what the standards are," Scott said. "The important factor with tandem skydiving is the certification and instructor." Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne
  10. I had those dreams when I first started. D-91 Dale Gates laughed and said "Those are the dreams that'll keep you alive." Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne
  11. He tried to get me as well. My last e-mail to him... No..they said the check is a forgery sent to me from some fucking loser trying to rip me off. Sound like anyone you know? I've known all along you were a fucking con man. I just wanted to see how much time and money I could make your sorry ass spend wasting it on me. FUCK OFF ASSHOLE Please don't dent the planet.

  12. I would think dropping the gear would add to the problem. Don't remember on my 3 jumps whether the gear was down but it was for all of my Beech 18 jumps. Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne
  13. Bill was nothing if not unique. Sail on. Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne
  14. Looks good to me. Surprised that you messed with it for as long as you did. Once you released the brakes I think it became apparent that it had to go. One question; what did you say after the reserve opened? I can't quite make it out. F'n something... Please don't dent the planet. Destinations by Roxanne
