    Wild Whuffo Stories

    I had a friend of mine (known to be a compulsive liar) tell me some amazing stories over the years. I visited his house when he lived with his parents and I started talking about skydiving. The story started out with how he used to fly a plane...and has been since the age of 7, when he was allowed to fly at the controls, alone with a little bit of ground training. Then the story progressed to skydiving. Him: "Yeah, I've gone a couple times, it's so sweet" Me: "Really? you've been?" Him: "Yeah, it was sweet, I opened the parachute like right before I hit the ground" Me: "so you jumped alone?" Him: "Hell yes, I wasn't gonna have some gay ass instructor on my back." Me: so how high were you when you pulled? Him: like...300 feet Me: How could you tell? Him: 'cause the plane was trying to land like right next to me. anyway, the bullshit continued and then his dad came home and goes, "oh, you guys are talking about skydiving? Chris has always wanted to go but we just haven't had the chance yet" then he stopped. Side note: This is the same kid that told me the company let him put his parents' pre-fab home on the foundation, using the bulldozer all on his own BE THE BUDDHA!

    Talk to me about night jumps....

    as far as the perspective thing goes, if you haven't done it yet, (assuming you're familiar with your DZ) set up general altitudes to make certain turns in your landing pattern, I almost got myself in a bit of trouble on one of my night jumps because I was trying to judge by my eyes rather than my alti....

    Newbies: Do you pack your own rig?

    I packed my own gear from jump 14. There's no way in hell I was going to be caught forking out 5 bucks for a pack. Edit to add: And, at least in the extremely limited amount of jumps I have, I've always thought it to be part of the experience of skydiving, It's fun to pack with my other buddies right after a jump. and then laugh at them as I close my container and throw in my PC way before them BE THE BUDDHA!

    footwear question

    ever tried worn down high-tops? like older converse all stars? smooth on bottom for slide-age but provide more ankle support than normal skate shoes. p.s. DC's suck

    Bad openings on Safire 2 just lately - why ?

    Rears? If I'm not sorely mistaken, an inflated right side would make you spin left. Maybe the question is more about body position than packing, cause I know I've absolutely trashed some packs in to the bag and had fine openings. I've thrown things in that other ppl said they wouldn't jump (first 20 packs or so) and I've never spun around 180...then again, I pull my rears apart on opening BE THE BUDDHA!
