  1. Hey Space, Can you explain why a large PC could cause your canopy to collapse on front riser input. I trust you but I'm having a hard time rapping my mind around that. I took a 42 and a 46 with me to tombstone and the person I was with only had a 36 so I let her use my 42 and I used my 46. I front risered in to landing and didn't have any issue luckily.

  2. I know some people find him pretty abrasive, but Robin Heid could probably contribute some helpful insights to this as well. Anyone seen him post lately? If I don't see him reply I'll email him about this. I've got this really hardcore group of gaurdian angels that need a free paid vacation. ~Dan Osman

  4. Headed to bootcamp today. See you guys in 11-20 some odd weeks. I'm kind of curious to see what sorts of replies this gets, but I guess I'll have to wait those weeks to see. I've got this really hardcore group of gaurdian angels that need a free paid vacation. ~Dan Osman
  5. You seem really depressed lately Nick. I hope some of the locals take you out for a beer and I hope everything is alright. I've got this really hardcore group of gaurdian angels that need a free paid vacation. ~Dan Osman
  6. yah i was thinking you'd need to fix a protractor with an adjustable laser pointer on it to a level. That and binoculars. it'd probably have to be a badass laser pointer too. I've got this really hardcore group of gaurdian angels that need a free paid vacation. ~Dan Osman
  7. Awesome thank you. I'm saving that image. My pic from my last post didn't work so here it is again.

  8. Can you explain that more? You range finder C1 and C2, but how do you get B1 and B2? Maybe I'm way off of what you were explaining. [img]http://img158.imageshack.us/img158/5960/picas9.jpg[/img] I've got this really hardcore group of gaurdian angels that need a free paid vacation. ~Dan Osman
  9. Can you re-explain that? I've learned this once before when I started trig, but that doesn't make any sense to me. Are you saying you can figure the height by taking only one range finder reading? That's what it seems like? height = where your at to top * sin? also height = where your at to bottom of cliff * cos?

  10. I almost said the same thing when I read this. Sadly that's all I know about Belize. I've got this really hardcore group of gaurdian angels that need a free paid vacation. ~Dan Osman
  11. hah By the way, I'm going to be celebrating my birthday and my going away to boot camp at the College Inn pub Saturday night at about 10:30. You should come. I'm going to call everyone tomorrow probably. I've been pretty sick the past few days. It's on 40th and University in the U district. Going at 10:30 because we're watching UFC first. Anyone that will be in the Seattle area on Saturday night is invited. I've got this really hardcore group of gaurdian angels that need a free paid vacation. ~Dan Osman
  12. When are you going to be in Washington? Driving Instructor? We should rent a car Oh, and do you already BASE jump? I've got this really hardcore group of gaurdian angels that need a free paid vacation. ~Dan Osman
  13. At my last job I had an insurance that they offered called metlaw. It was only $9/month for an attorney to represent you if you need it. They have a network of attorneys for all different categories. I never used it, so I can't say if it was easy or worth it, but it seems like a great idea.

  14. I want some armor with fine mesh made of somethign like spectra rapped all around it so that there is no snag potential. It would also be awesome if it floated. Full body armor or individual peices. I've got this really hardcore group of gaurdian angels that need a free paid vacation. ~Dan Osman

    Reading this I thought to myself. No matter how good it gets, and how many objects we have that become totally legal 24/7/365, we're always going to have things that we want to jump off of that we aren't allowed to. Antenna's will be bought and made for the jumping, but our local antennas will still be trespassing. Building will allow events at certain times of year or if you know the right people maybe always, but we won't be able to jump any building we want. So the best we can really hope for is more objects that should be legal, to be legal. i.e. Yosemite I'm very drunk right now, but I think that makes sense. Legalize it. also, some people like breaking the law and that's a part of base jumping that they like. so maybe everything not being legal is a good thing for them. Also I can see even if every region of the world had a legal object, it might get boring to you after a while and you'll want to venture to other objects in your area that aren't. Every lock is pickable or bipassible, so every base jump is accesable without anyone ever knowing accept you, you just have to have the right plan and the right tools. Some will obvously be harder than others and might cost something out of your range, but, i'm going to stop now. hopefully this inspires some good conversation and hopefully we'll all have more legal objects soon.
