  3. Hey John! You hungry for a rack of baby backs? Come on by and will discuss politics and religion as we did so many times. RIP my friend.
  4. Greetings to all of y'all fast falling rascals. Although I am no longer skydiving (last jump 4 years ago this month) I do l do know a bit about speed skydiving. That said, others know more. Hit 200 mph then you go for 250 mph and faster and faster. 275 mph is hauling ass then you start thinking about the 300 mph. Just a note here, you best be jumping really good/maintained gear....a preemie deployment and you die......it's that simple. Once I hit 300 mph...then it's a new world. Won a Fastest Man Contest at the Old Skydive Houston at 320 mph. The I had to go faster...at 343 mph I had a sharp pain in my sinuses....and blood bubbles started coming out of my nose. That sure as shit was not good.....did a few more fast dives and gave it up! So to go really fast.......heads down, roll your shoulders in, point your toes and flatten your arms against your body. Just tickle the tube with your fingers and stay stable.....if you get asymmetrical......it's over for speed. Hope this helps. Adios, Mad Max See you at DeadManBoogie 11! Don't go away mad....just go away!
  5. Bob was a character. Met him at WFFC in the late 90's. Geared up to make a jump with him at SDH. Lighting and storms rolled in and shut that down. We talked about Ripcord and what was in that old van of his......a rolling museum indeed! Blue Ones! Don't go away mad....just go away!
  6. Col Joe is a true American hero. Balloons, High altitude, POW.......name it. HBD! Regards, Mad Max Don't go away mad....just go away!
  7. Greetings! If you had more than a sentence with Ron, consider yourself lucky. He was the quiet guy. Ron asked me about a lot in the country. I found one in my subdivision.....took the sign down and delivered it to him. Ron bought it. He also bought a chipper shredder and a riding lawnmower. He asked me about a place to store it. Hell, Ron...just store it in my barn. How much he asked me. Told him that his money was no good here. So he paid with a case of Shiner about every six months. He wore that chipper shredder out...several times. Sears lost big time on that extended warranty big time! Then he got into the poison ivy on his lot.....ate his azz up! All that said...every Saturday morning for a couple of years he was at his lot cutting, chipping and shredding! And....I had one jump with him years ago. After he died, his brother, sister and niece came over to pick up his riding lawnmower. They brought the last case of Shiner over for the "rent". We busted one out each and said adios. Regards, Mad Max Don't go away mad....just go away!

  22. This happened about 15 years ago to me. Put my old diesel truck in the shop....got a rental car from Enterprise. They didn't have my cheap car so they upgraded me to a Riviera. That thing was NICE! Driving on Hwy 290 out of Houston to Austin...flying along and popped an overpass in Prairie View. Cop was in the tall grass and I knew that I was screwed, oh well. I just slowed down, pulled over, got the documents and leaned against the trunk. The cop arrives, no lights, gets out and I give him the rental agreement, insurance and my DL. Then he said "you were going kind of fast weren't you?" My reply was "No sir, I was hauling ass, at least 85 mph....cause I drive an old truck and the rental car company upgraded me with this thing." He goes back to his car, checks everything via the radio and returns after about five minutes or so. I know that it's gonna be a big ticket, damn. This is what he said "you're the first honest SOB that I've run into in a long time, btw you were going 87 mph.....just slow it down." No ticket! Don't go away mad....just go away!
  23. "It was very accurate in making that Wisconsin DZ look identical to Skydive Chicago " I thought the same....lol. Especially when the repo dudes were sneaking around and the DC-3 wing/engine was in the frame. Oh well, it's a mindless show that's easy to watch on Friday night. Don't go away mad....just go away!
  24. "Hell, maybe they dropped it to the deck and flew somewhere else. Not likely, but not outside of the realm of possibility either." I thought about that possibility from the beginning. That idea is floating around now. What say you NSA? Don't go away mad....just go away!
