    Pets?

    Her aggression is confidence driven (lack of) or so we have been told. Thankfully we have been and are working with one on one training to hopefully improve her confidence and teach her appropriate behavior... she isn't so bright however and it sometimes takes a while for things to sink in... she is a sweetie however at least with people... and in a comfortable environment (such as at home...)

    Pets?

    Always been a dog person... had a family cat growing up but mostly gravitate to female dogs. After losing my 10ish year old Catahoula/Lab mix last year due to a pancreatic insulinoma (pancreatic cancer). My wife and I adopted a pit mix from a local rescue organization. Her name is Izzy (Isabelle) and she can be a challenge at times (due to being aggressive towards other dogs) but she does really well with us and we have probably the perfect environment for her to be happy. In the attached photo she is watching us get ready for work on a Monday morning and really doesn't want to get out of bed. Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
  3. I can completely relate as we had to put my girl down over the summer as well... We went a completely different route and although she is a handful (due mostly to the challenges of her history and her lack of confidence) our pitbull rescue is a as completely different then my previous dog and at the same time is a great addition to our family dynamic. She has been and will likely be a lot of work to get her where she is able to be out and about without it being a challenge but she is a great girl with a lot of personality.

  4. It's pretty severe, at least at The Farm. Years ago some young dude accidentally dropped a can of beer from under canopy, and it went whistling down, impacting near the hangar, IIRC. They caught the perp, made him sit in a chair, and gave a speech about that sort of thing, and had two guys give him a power slap to the inside of both thighs. I saw the video. Looked painful as all hell. I think he was talking about dropping a joint under canopy... thankfully that wouldn't likely hurt anyone (unlike a beer can)... but the penalty might still be moderately severe.

  5. Hell, I could write a book about the things I learned in the bonfire... lol... I do enjoy the thread drift... and totally get the everything on facebook now... Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
  6. Has anything exciting happened in say... the last 3-4 years or so? Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
  7. Wow, you actually resurrected a post that I interjected in over 7 years ago... good to see where things have gone in the past several years... HA HA HA. Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
  8. I went to see an Ansel Adams Exhibit when I graduated college he had a tremendous eye for photography and I would love to have even a percentage of his level of vision. Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
  9. I've used the 10-22 for several years now... I did have on instance of it breaking but that wasn't during skydiving. Overall I like the lens. Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
  10. Thank you I like to play in burbles... and I like the no contact work too... Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
  11. I can't speak to the Mantle but I LOVE my FTP. Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
  12. Went down in November to shoot video for Team Elite at Deland in November and here are a few of my favorite shots from the weekend. Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
  13. better glass is more critical then updating the body (in this case) if you were considering a 5D MkIII then it would be a different story... but in this case with the smaller frame (APS Sensor) you probably won't see a substiantial difference between the 400d and the 600d.

  14. I've used the Tokina AT-X 17mm and now use the Canon 10-22mm. The 10-22 is much better then the 17mm by a long shot. I agree with the first response that the Tokina is pretty soft for a prime and the CA is much greater on it then with the 10-22. I would recommend the Canon 10-22 long before the Tokina 17.

  15. Pick music that your wife and you will both enjoy. I've used just about every style of music both slow and fast for skydiving videos. Making the music choice work is more about the editing then about anything else. Edited to add: Congratulations!!! Scott Livin' on the Edge... sleeping with my rigger's wife...
