  1. Should work great. One of the regular jumpers will probably buy it at that big of a discount. I was thinking that $1,000 would be a good deal. It's would be easy for anyone to verify that the account had the money. Seems that the DZ would facilitate the transfer upon you receiving the funds.
  2. Woo Hoo - thanks for listening. The problem we see with new jumpers that "read ahead" is they learn it incorrectly or learn things that are simply wrong. Then we spend time getting them to unlearn it. The instructors will teach you what you need when you need it. If you're above average they'll give you more, if below average it comes at a slower pace. All designed to not overload the student to the failure point.
  3. Guy meets hot chick in the bar, invites her to his place and she says yes. In further conversation he learns she's married. Guy: Why are you cheating? Her: Because he stutters and lies. Guy: Why is that a problem? She: Well, I'm a pharmacist. He came in to buy condoms and said he needed XXXXL. I proposed on the spot. On our wedding night I learned about the stuttering and lying. He should have asked for MMMM.
  4. missing the point simple: an AAD fire is not necessarily a "save", the manufacturer can't claim they have xxx saves because they have sold xxx cutters, there are plenty of instances when the AAD fired as programmed but the jumper had an open or opening main agree on the being low comments but that doesn't mean it's a "save"
  5. the ones I'm discussing weren't premature openings, the AAD functioned as programmed the point is that these weren't saves, everything would have been fine without the AAD firing, the manufacturer has no way to know if an order for a cutter involved a save because they don't ask for details
  6. an AAD fire is not necessarily a save unless the manufacturer is collecting data about the fire they don't know if it was a save or just a fire I'm aware of a couple fires where the jumper merely opened low and the firing sequence had started. They had opening mains when the reserve loop was cut. The main opened then the reserve then came out.
  7. B - building A - antenna S - span E - earth helicopter is not part of the definition
  8. A blonde and brunette were walking past a flower shop. The brunette saw her boyfriend inside buying flowers. She sighs and says, "Now he will expect me to spend the weekend on my back with my legs spread in the air." The blonde says, "Don't you have a vase?"
  9. Myrtle Beach is a tourist trap: golf, t-shirt shops and strip clubs, the beach is nice, typical east coast sand, plenty of beach front places to stay, waves are loud if you want that sound. If you want to go east then there's Isle of Palms and Sullivans Island immediately north of Charleston, and Folly Beach just to the south, IOP/Sully beaches are the same as MB but much less cheesy, many neat restaurants, small town feel. Folly is an old style hippie place, plenty of the younger crowd, small town, beach is similar to the above. If you go to Folly you need to stay on Folly. You could stay off Folly on James Island or Charleston but the traffic is terrible with all the day trippers. Florida panhandle is a much better than MB, better beaches, soft white sand. For me, assuming distance wasn't an issue: FL, Folly=IOP/Sully then MB. But I'm 2 hours from Charleston and 2.5 to MB. Hugely prefer the panhandle. All of them will be packed with people and kids, and restaurants will be full.
  10. on the fake FG - the holder gave it away when he looked at the sideline and nodded Give one city to the thugs so they can all live together. I vote for Chicago where they have strict gun laws.
  11. yep, at the post game mid-field handshake Dabo told Nick, see ya next year Give one city to the thugs so they can all live together. I vote for Chicago where they have strict gun laws.
  12. jumped the Sharpchuter, Fury, Maverick and Cricket, did plenty of CRW on the first two - all great canopies, had a Firelite reserve, never used it Jumped a Nova for years without any issue. There was more than one fatality when the canopy was flown aggressively and in turbulence. It was never a good idea to make a low turn behind trees on a windy day regardless of the canopy being jumped. there is at least one around being jumped regularly with no issues at the time it was the most aggressive canopy available, fast with a good glide ratio it was fun test jumping it in a Teardrop container at the old Z-Hills, it didn't have a logo on it and everyone always yelled beer until they saw that it easily flew to the other side of the line Give one city to the thugs so they can all live together. I vote for Chicago where they have strict gun laws.
  13. Billy - knock knock - are you up off the floor yet?? total domination: offense, defense, band, cheer leaders the look on Saban's face, disbelief and no clue what to do So - South Carolina beat em, Clemson beat em twice, next time we're sending Furman Give one city to the thugs so they can all live together. I vote for Chicago where they have strict gun laws.
  14. depends on the DZ, suggest you focus on the training and first jump if you are ready ask them about a second jump, if they have time and staff it should be fine Give one city to the thugs so they can all live together. I vote for Chicago where they have strict gun laws.
  15. bring on the best two teams, it will be fun Give one city to the thugs so they can all live together. I vote for Chicago where they have strict gun laws.
