  2. helio stallion? jumpers ARE better all around people than whuffos
  3. Although i completely violated my own reasoning, the reason for no RSL was the whole belief that i wanted to get stable before i pulled my reserve. Also. i dont ever want me to cutaway my main and have my reserve deployed before my main clears, for instance if it gets caught partly on my leg. jumpers ARE better all around people than whuffos
  4. A bow flex would only build muscle which weighs more than fat. My wind resistance would be less and i would weigh more. That wouldnt help jumpers ARE better all around people than whuffos
  5. I had a spring PC during AFF almost 3 years ago in Taft. You are sure right about the reserve ride. I had never flown it nor did i know how accurate i could land it. When i saw hte main goinng towards the houses, i said there is no way i am trying to land in a street with cars, trees, wires, etc. I was just REALLY bummed that no one even my coach saw it. Rather than saying, "You are alive" or "You survived," All i got was "Why didnt you land by your main?" jumpers ARE better all around people than whuffos
  6. can you tell me/us what size was your main? what size was the reserve? what was the wing loading? did you buy beer? Triathlon 190 Stellar 180 I weigh 270 out the door (same rig since jump 17), so i am loading it at about 1.35-1.4 On average, i fall about 130 mph on my belly, even on deployment (i need to do something about that because my body has no wind resistance but has all hte weight. 5 different jumpsuits only slow me down up to 4 mph) my max speed was 182 on that jump occurring on the 2nd half (based on the average of 144 on 2nd half). YES, i bought beer
  7. in an emergency, i can understand how one loses altitude awareness. WHen i was spinnning out of control, all i cared about was chopping that sucker and getting a better one out. NO jump could ever give you that feeling of going back into freefall after cutting away. People talk about that roller coaster feeling that we really dont get.......I got it that jump. I guess i owe a bottle of scotch jumpers ARE better all around people than whuffos
  8. after my reserve opened, i did a control check and then looked for traffic. I then checked the alti and found the DZ (we had a VERY bad spot). I was way north of the DZ and my canopy was going North. At about 1000 feet, i knew the canopy was going towards the houses so i decided not to land near it. It wasnt until an hour later when i realized no one realy watches that i didnt have money to buy another main. As i drove around Perris, i kept callin manifest until finally the rigger's husband turned it in. the FIRST thing out of ANYONE"S mouth was "why didnt you land by your main?!?" I said it wasnt safe.................... jumpers ARE better all around people than whuffos
  9. I usually open at 4 to allow for some room to regain stability in case of a mal, but when it happened, i didnt even think to get stable again, i knew i needed an open canopy. I was pretty much standing up when it opened. Scared the [email protected]$t out of me........ i agree about the main jumpers ARE better all around people than whuffos
  10. Are you saying it will get worse? Great. Maybe I should just cutaway like the movie
  11. Fellow law students unite. Who wants to ditch class and go jump? Everyone I think. Anyways, I am a 2 and a 1/2 L and doing a joint degree (JD/MDR). I am now sitting in "arbitration practice" and wishing i could be back in the air learning to backfly. who else is stuck in the law realm and especially, who is attending law school in LA (I am at Loyola (JD) and Peppderdine (MDR)) jumpers ARE better all around people than whuffos
