  1. The e-brake cables have grommets that go through the floor board, sealing it. You'll have to pull the center console to find the ring. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  2. Just two jumps after recieving my A-license I followed a friend's main when he cut away. The DZ I was jumping at had plenty of outs around it. The S&TA asked me when I got back why I followed it down instead of landing back at the DZ. I simply told him that i felt comfortable landing out. All he said after that was "good landing." I felt comfortable doing it at this DZ, that doesn't mean that I would've done it at a different DZ though. Purely circumstantial. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  3. I will personally jump in steady winds up to 25mph. key word is steady. If it is gusty at all, it depends on how strong. Ex. 5 gusting to 10 is ok for me, but 10 gusting to 20, I'll sit. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  4. This is what we do on my brother's 170. Once we've flaked canopy we take the outer 4 cells on each side and roll them and stuff them into the center cell. We also make sure the slider is all the way up. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  5. The only riggers I know in OKC pretty much only do their own stuff and for a couple of friends. I take my rig to Spanky who lives just outside Okmulgee. If you'd like his number let me know. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  6. Just remember that whomever you use for shipping, you might make sure they require a signature. UPS and FedEx both have a "ring and run" method. Double check your shipping rates also. Make sure you don't get slapped with a big "gas surcharge" either. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  7. I usually tell people that it's cheaper than therapy. Usually shuts them up. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  8. Jumping is the one thing that is for me. I don't do it foranyone else. I can relax and have fun at my pace. My brother is the only other person in my family that does jump, but my wife and kids love to come watch. It is truly my time though. I'm a little selfish I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  9. I waited a couple of weeks before I jumped again. That was because I had a perforated sinus cavity from it. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  10. In case no one else has seen this. http://www.zerogroom.com/ Looks like Houston. It is listed as a sold tunnel on Skyventure's website also. I don't know how old this information is though. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  11. The employee that told me this didn't know which city it is to be built in/near. Although he did know that the land has already been purchased, and that a majority of the pre-development activity has been done. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  12. I was told, by a tunnel employee, that Texas will be getting a wind tunnel in the future. The site has already been purchased. I was also that they are trying to develop a cooling system for the wind tunnels to make the chamber more climate controlled, and depending on how long to develop may postpone the tunnel build. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  13. I purchased a Firebolt 218 at around 30 jumps. i've put around a hundred jumps on it since and i've never had a problem with it. I did call and talk with Nancy a couple of times before I ordered it. The dual brake lines have never been a problem for me, but I also take my time when packing. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  14. I'm staying at the Roadway Inn in town. My family will be with me for a family vacation. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
  15. I plan on being there either Friday or Saturday. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid!
