  1. Slavery prostitution is more prevalent than ever now.Just so much more refined and accepted by an immoral look the other way society !
  2. looks just like the Sprint 4G coverage area LOL
  3. you gotta start somewhere. Only 14 miles from SSM hope the pilots stay in contact with each other. who knows might get like the north shore of Oahu!
  4. Learned that Dennis passed away on 1/31/2014 from a post on Facebook from his brother Phil, former DZO of Skydive SanMarcos. Dennis was a big help to me when I first started jumping.Still remember his hard landing when he broke his femur and back. Phil's comment when he came up to his brother "welcome to the club" RIP old friend.
  5. we just had one tandem packers guy who threw punch got canned. Take your shit off the drop zone!
  6. Damn Todd, way too young! Enjoyed all the good times with you away from jumping. the dove hunt at SSM where i have a pic on the wall of my office with all of us and Super Dave with the condom over his head.The ski trip to Colorado 20 below zero.Your doing tandems at SSM and asking me for advice. You always treated me well when I visited Sky Dive Houston. Rest in Peace my friend. BSBD DR. D
  7. reminds me of a time long ago where a packer went up to the dzo and said we the packers have decided that we will pack for $6 instead Of $5. The DZO response " like hell you will you can pack your shit up and pack in Salado" Sorry Wendy.
  8. Patrick Allen Flynn passed away November 26th after a 2 year battle with brain cancer. Allen,as he preferred to be called, was my AFF instructor and later my AFF I/E along with Glen Bangs and Lee Fairbank. You will be missed by many that learned and jumped with you here at SkyDive San Marcos. RIP my friend,
  9. When teaching ground school I always use this tragedy as one of the reasons we don't jump through clouds!
  10. RIP Bill, still remember the day that you called me after sending in my paperwork for my SCR to congratulate me. I thought it was a nice touch to the award. Dave Heinrich SCR-14241
  11. Hard to believe Ed was such a warrior in Viet Nam after reading his Silver Star Citation. It was a honor to have known and jumped with you Ed. Gonna miss your smile!Guess you and Dan Potts are planning a nice RW jump RIP my friend.
  12. Gives new meaning to Accuracy Landings!!!
  13. It surprised me on the # old time jumpers that didnt have AADs at SSM. And staff most who probably had their AAds expire!. Take where the knee jerk jump came from a speed star! all different levels of experince! I would have no hesitation to jumpimg with a John Rich a Carol Lee a Weldon people who were jumping before AADs were on the market. I picked up a tandem rig after after it had been jumped> AAD not turned on ? the tandem instructour his response? I was doing tandems before there was Drouges, AADs
  14. to Aggie Dave Sarah put in order for staff only 4 were available!
  15. I have 3 rigs, just recenly 2 have no AADs one my mirage with an Argus, banned, the 2nd a Cypress 12 years old good bye the third a racer never had an AAD. My pockets may have a little cushion! but I will be doing tandems to pay for these new AADs that I am forced to jump wiith at my home DZ. I have made it a policy not to take away from my family over skydiving financially.We have 1 instructor that has 6 rigs. bottom line there is no profit in teaching AFF
  16. FYI effective July 1st, 2012 anyone wanting to make a jump at Sky Dive San Marcos must have an AAD equipped rig. No exceptions!
  17. almost felt like I needed to grab my 3-d glasses!
  18. A fund has been set up to post a memorial in Parachustists for Terry. Skydive San marcos is handling it you can make contributions in his name. Their # is 512 488 2214
  19. I have made it a point to read the previous 79 posts in entirety on this subject. i will get a japanese tattoo in the near future futo fukutsu Got the privelige of meeting Saburo Sakai in Fredericksburg years back at the Nimitz Museum. I will know what tat stands for Never Give Up ! What I teach all my AFF students, I am tired of the media dragging done the men and women that give us the right to voice our opinions here on this forum. Symbols are symols it is the man that stands behind them that counts. i would trust my life to those marines in that pic more than but a few here that have repilied on this subject
  20. I have had a partical camera man flick the boogie at my student in freefall at SSM. He no longer works there. All in all we have a very professional staff at SkyDive San Marcos that treats customers with respect! This goes for the video guys as well as the instructors. FYI Connie Krusi will be taking her ten thousandt tandem student on a jump jump soon. I believe a young man named Vic Krusi will be riding front seat
  21. I had the privalige to work with and learn from Terry in his last days of skydiving. the knowledge he imparted on me could never be put in print or video. The man was cat quick on a out of control student. His way with words priceless!! RIP Terry.
  22. I have had a few hard landings with down time. learn from your mistake don't repeat it and if you truly love the sport continue on!
  23. What was stated in the USPA e-mail newsletter is an accurate assesment on what happened. The rigger followed all proper channels in reporting the incident.The cutter failed to cut the reserve closing loop completely. I have an Argus in my Mirage.If I jump the rig due in light on what has happened I will not not turn the AAD on.
