  1. Sweet rig!! Now is that a Vector or a Mirage??
  2. I used to race my car a few years ago. These cars need Parachutes(usually 2) to slow them down at the end. What happens if a parachute fails?? Usually death. No reserves here.
  3. Our boss took us to Fogo De Chao for lunch. No booze so my job sucks more than yours
  4. Hmm, How many tablets did you take? I was taking vicodin last week at work and it had no effect on me. May be my dosage was very low.
  5. Since I have the cast and a job interview tomorrow morning, I will wait until things cool off a bit before venturing to the theaters.
  6. The 3 hour 42 min film is opening tomorrow at 12:01am, So who's watching? I am talking about The Lord Of The Rings : The Return Of The King of course.
  7. Awesome looking rig!! JC's is a sweet looking rig as well!! Me.......I ordered a simple Black and Silver G4. Edited to correct spelling!!
  8. My home PC is a 2.8 GHz P4 800 MHZ Bus speed. Intel PBZ Canterwood MB. 2Gig PC 400 TwinX Corsair Ram. 120 GB ATA 133 System Drive. 40 GB ATA 133 Pagefile Drive. 2x120 SATA RAID 0 Video Drive. ATI Radeon 9800 PRO 128 MB Video. SB Audigy2 sound card. Thermal Take Xaser III Case Black. NEC 19" Big Fat Monitor.
  9. I always wanted to ask this question. I know people here the movie cutaway very much for whatever...that's what I figured but here goes...... Is the girl that played Stark a real skydiver?? Or did Kate cooper double for her. Anyways I though she was hot.
  10. I dated a porn star. Porn star defined as someone that still has his/her movies up on a website. So she is'nt a 'star' but she is a star. That seems to be the story of my life. Mismatched as hell.
  11. Oh well...did'nt give it much thought but you are right
  12. It depends, what scale are we using? LOL that's a joke A=1 B=2 ...G==8. Kris.
  13. I smoked on and off for 4 years and quit. I used to smoke as many as 2 packs a day at times. Cold turkey.
  14. I want to go back to the original post and ask a question. I totally applaud President Bush for risking his life and going to Iraq to boost the morale of our soldiers. Which I believe is also the point the original email is trying to bring across. That aside, I want to get a reaction from the people here on what they think about President Bush not attending the funeral of a single soldier that has fallen.
  15. I made the cardinal mistake. I jumped on a load when the winds had died down but they were high all day.....result broken ankle with some metal in there now. I just got off student status and used to sit out loads that students were'nt allowed on. One mistake is all it takes folks to mess up your next 6 months(I am thankful it is'nt worse). I hope low time jumpers learn from my bad experience and stay safe. Blue Skies Be Safe Kris
  16. This altimeter is a wonderful product with a wealth of features. It has Ground, Aircraft, Freefall and Canopy modes and it switches automatically between the different modes. It is a freefall computer and an audible altimeter as well. However you can only use it as an audible or visual altimeter. The freefall computer/logbook features are nice. The software to download the data is in development but updates to the firmware are available and a cool feature IMO. The log book logs exit altitude, canopy deployment altitude, vertical speed at 12K, 9K, 6K and 3K feet and freefall time. The downside is that the buttons can stop working after a while. My altimeter is fine but one of the guys that jumps at my DZ has an older neptune and I could'nt update the firmware on it because to enter bootlogger mode you need to press and hold both scroll buttons for 10 secs or more.
  17. Both my brother and I are newbies. My brother said he did 17 S/L jumps before moving on to AFF. He's doing pretty good in the AFF progression. He jumps at Kapowsin. I have not done a single S/L jump. I started with the AFF Level 1 at Lexington, Tx. I then moved on to the STP Solo progression at Spaceland. Different places have different ways of instruction.
  18. Welcome!! So when are you making your next jump? :)
  19. What do you mean by blew the jump? If you are fit to be on a plane after you "blew" a jump, you had a good jump. Don't be thinking I did'nt do what I had to do on this jump(according to the dive flow), every jump you make teaches you something. Don't let the dive flow overwhelm you. By your definition I did'nt get the turn jumps(STP/AFP jumps 2 thru 4) right at all. However each jump has helped me relax. I am slowly gaining body position awareness and more importantly am able to relax during the skydive. About being scared, I don't know what to do. I am sure everyone here was a little nervous at some point. It's normal. Good luck !! I hope you get over the panic.
  20. The only thing I have purchased is an Altimaster Neptune. Yes I am on student status as well. I use it as a visual altimeter and logbook. If you want to or have a need to buy something...this is a good thing to buy. Ask your instructor before you buy one. Welcome to the sport and the forums!! Be Safe!!
  21. Thinking the same thing. Now if this weather gets better....I can go do some jumping. GRRRR
  22. Quite Normal... Welcome to the forums.
  23. I am on student status and I do my reserve drills everyday before the first jump. I was so worried about the diveflow that I forgot visualizing the Reserve drills on the plane. I will remember to do it a number of times every jump. Thanks for posting this poll.
