  1. c u on the other side brother. we will miss you. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  2. Thats where i started. Great Dropzone. Have fun be safe. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  3. He is at peace, but he will be missed by so many of us. R.I.P. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  4. I still do them when needed. It has saved my ass more then once, and it is always better to get back up and dust your self off then not be able to get back up at all. As for the forward speed, even in that case it has saved me from getting hurt. As they say "The shit works" so why not learn it. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  5. Yes they do I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  6. No Big deal at all. Just reporting the error as I was told to by a moderator. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  7. I have been getting messages that say. So and so has excepted your friend request while I did not send one. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  8. Hard deck-Know it before you get on a plane and stick to it. For me 1500 feet not floating happily means EP no matter what. I hope to stick to this for all my jumping life. I think that’s one of most important rules I learned. # 1 priority don’t go below the hard deck with any mal. Unless of course you have a double mal. A lot more qualified people have already spoken this is just my .02 I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  9. I am so sorry. May god give you and your family peace. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  10. Congratulations, and thank you. I have made many friends here, and still remember how helpful this site and the people on it were when I first started to jump. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  11. He gave the same vibe in person. I had the pleasure of meeting him in Eloy years ago. I liked him from the first hello. He was just a cool/Nice guy. Peace Brother fly free. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  12. I am still waiting for the zipper. Is there another source if Birdman doesn’t ever send it? I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  13. Skydiving is a privilege not just swooping. Someone who cuts people off because of his swoop is no different then a dumb ass who tracks up the line of flight. We have stupid people every where doing every thing. I totally agree with Brain that this is a knee-jerk reaction. I believe that there is a lot more we can do other then ban swooping or 270 turns. Most DZ I have seen have enough room to put in a swoop lane, you could even require any one who wants to swoop to take a canopy control class if they have not already. As for the DZ being a business yes they are but I think brain answered that very well. Here is the other thing. If you love RW you know what it feels like to turn points when you have that awesome jump where every thing goes great. You get down and you have the biggest smile on your face. Same with freeflyers and wingsuits or what ever you’re in too. Some of us (like my self) the definition of a good jump or bad jump is only made after my swoop. It doesn’t matter I could turn a 100 points but if my swoop sucks (often does) it was a bad jump. Yes I know it is all fun but there is a different sense of satisfaction you get from doing what you love well. By banning swooping you will be taking that away for the swoopers, and that’s just not skydiver like (IMHO). I bet most swoopers are willing work something out. I am sure most are open to suggestions to make it safer for all of us I know I am, and so are most of the people I know. So banning not cool changing some things to make it safer cool.

  14. What skydiving is supposed to be fun? It would be great if you could just toss the stiffs out. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
  15. Yea we thought of that as well however the metal thingy that the pull thingy attaches to is what is broken so no place to attach anything. I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." - Kurt Cobain
