    Naked fatalities?

    Didn't Lee ?????? (can't remember his last name right now) go in on a naked jump in 95-96 back East somewhere? He was a crazy old bastard in his 70's, who damn near died when I took him on his only 'A' BASE jump in Lower Alabama, 1994. Lee jumped at Bridge Day 1993, then invited me to MB for a building jump in November, where I qualified for my number...359 A year or so later, after I moved to Colorado, I heard he died...on what I swear was a naked jump. Anyone help? 359 "Now I've settled down, in a quiet little town, and forgot about everything"
  3. Geez Jim, that is a terrifying story from the old days. A Unit, eh? Brrrr...gives me chills just to think about it! 359 "Now I've settled down, in a quiet little town, and forgot about everything"

    Who stole the cells?

    Then you should be asking J Mike what gear is best for you. He's probably watched you make most of your landings anyway. BASE359 "Now I've settled down, in a quiet little town, and forgot about everything"

    Who's Jumped a Strato Star ?

    ^^ You may be thinking of Ron Walker. I believe my first Strato Star, bought in early 1976, came from him. 359 "Now I've settled down, in a quiet little town, and forgot about everything"

    700 jumps in 24 hours

    Jay Stokes is a mental and physical machine...and one badass animal! Knowing Jay and Kenyon both, my gut tells me Jay's record is safe for now. However, props to Kenyon for making an effort, and best of luck! 359 "Now I've settled down, in a quiet little town, and forgot about everything"

    Pole dancer?

    The marker balls you see in the pic are about one half mile from the intended landing area. All the other students on the load landed as instructed. If you've never seen a student land 1/2 mile from their intended landing area, stick around...you obviously haven't been skydiving long enough.

    Why is Mr.Bill called Mr.Bill?

    Either Stoney is living up to his name, or it's been too long since he's seen an episode of Mr Bill on TV. This is from Wiki... "Mr. Bill is the clay figurine star of a series of short subjects shown from 1976 to 1980 on Saturday Night Live (SNL). The "Mr. Bill Show" was a parody of children's shows. Mr. Bill got its start when Walter Williams sent SNL a Super-8 reel featuring the character in response to the show's request for home movies during the first season. Mr. Bill's first appearance occurred on the February 28, 1976 episode. Williams became a full-time writer for the show in 1978, writing more than 20 skits based on Mr. Bill. Each Mr. Bill episode would start innocently enough but would quickly turn dangerous for Mr. Bill. Along with his dog, Spot, he would suffer various indignities inflicted by "Mr. Hands," a man seen only as a pair of hands (played by Vance DeGeneres).[1] Sometimes the abuse would ostensibly come from the mean Mr. Sluggo, another clay character. (However, Mr. Hands did most of the violence himself, because Sluggo would tell him to, i.e. "Mr. Sluggo says to...") The violence would inevitably escalate, generally ending with Mr. Bill being crushed or dismembered while squealing in a high pitched voice, "Ohhhh noooooooooooooo..." Characters: Mr. Bill, Mr. Hands, Spot, Sluggo, Miss Sally, Mr. Bill's Mom & Sluggo Clones. The character's popularity spawned the 1986 live-action movie Mr. Bill's Real Life Adventures." Hope that helps ya work it out. BASE359 "Now I've settled down, in a quiet little town, and forgot about everything"

    Pole dancer?

    That guy had madskillz! Try and land up there without injury, and put your slider on the very top of the pole as well! When I flew by on final with the jumpmaster riding down with me, I couldn't believe what I saw when I passed that pole...I even went around again so Mike Igo could see where his student had landed! Thanks for posting that pic David! BASE359 "Now I've settled down, in a quiet little town, and forgot about everything"
