  1. I agree personally, but there are *a lot* of people who don't jump who could easily say the same thing to their family or loved ones just because they chose to jump. It's an added risk that a lot of people don't agree with or understand. I'm not ready to make such harsh judgement calls about what safety gear another jumper chooses to use. It's all relative.

    Container sizing for noob

    I didn't get the impression that he was ordering custom, but rather than he wants to buy a rig and he isn't quite sure what container size he needs. Owned by Remi #?

    Negotiating first rig

    I agree with the others. Without knowing the age of the gear and the options it's impossible to know if the deal is a good. A relatively new Vector with magnetic riser covers, a Skyhook, spacer foam, a hook knife, an articulated harness, etc might be a good deal at 2100. A brand new Wings with similar options costs about the same. Owned by Remi #?
  7. I don't know who has more, I'd guess Jay. When I started jumping in 2002 Sherry had about 4000. Since every time I've been to the DZ (and that's just about every weekend it's open until last year) I've seen her on practically every load that flies, so I'd guess she's probably got around 7000-8000 minimum by now. She's an active AFF-I and I/E, she's an active Coach and Coach I/E. When she's not doing on of those jobs, she's filming a tandem or getting in a fun jump. Care to explain how that's not being a "real" skydiver? Owned by Remi #?
  8. Who told you? Share your sources, share the details. If you don't, then this comment is complete hot air. Give us some facts. If you don't have any *facts* to share, then you're just as knee deep in the bullshit as everyone else here. Owned by Remi #?
  9. That could be but... wow. I sure hope not. Owned by Remi #?
  10. Didn't he have to make training jumps to get the wings? Owned by Remi #?

    Three fatal accidents in a week

    Nothing AT ALL wrong with cutting away at 3K I was just commenting on the suggestion that cutting away at 3K was *too low* Do you see the difference? Owned by Remi #?
  12. Honestly... I've never had a feeling of dread about finding anything. I've just thought that it would be a bonus feature to collect my stuff. Owned by Remi #?

    getting my foot in the door

    I don't know if he's an asshole, but I can guess that if he reacts to a little ribbing by calling someone a smart ass, he's not going to get a lot of help and he must have pretty thin skin. Owned by Remi #?

    Rig Range of Sizes

    Oh... who knows. Maybe it will just not fit you just enough that you could possibly fall out of it. Or maybe you won't fall out of it, but it'll be just loose enough that you'll still be trying to pry the reserve handle out of your left ear while you crater in. What do they know? They probably are way too conservative about what fits. Owned by Remi #?
