  1. I would encourage you to speak with a suit manufacturer directly. I have experience with Tonysuits and Flitesuits and it would appear that Tony is focused on wingsuits these days, but that doesn't mean they won't break out some old patterns to help..Flitesuits broke out an old balloon suit pattern when I wanted it for tandem instruction.
  2. Yup. Hey lady, not unlike you; I'm getting a little long in the tooth. Couple of major surgeries and a back and knees that has just crumbled into pieces from years of military jumping. Many of us dinosaurs contributed countless articles on safety, training, etc. to this site in its infancy to help the young'uns. Not unlike you, I don't tread in the skydiving community too often anymore and when I do it's relevant no matter what the timeframe. EP's target fixation, etc. I think the information given here would be more focused from dinosaurs who've been there, done that - than what they'll get from the land of facebook. Respect, Keith
  3. You'll need to get to 250# Me: 6'6" 250# You can do it. One of my students worked out at the gym for 2 hours in the morning; went to work; at lunch ran 8-10 miles every weekday; went home to spend time with Momma and put the kids to bed; Went back to the gym to workout for another two hours. He did this for a year and lost 150# You sound motivated. I hope you make it.

    I put it on my watchlist for later today. It's a movie, not a documentary.
  5. We are running the same version of Chrome. This does not appear to be a dz.com issue, but a Chrome Width Setting issue. A couple of suggestions: 1. If you recently added some chrome extension - remove that and see if it changes back. 2. Chrome: Hamburger menu > Settings > Advanced > Restore settings to their original defaults (This will reset your startup page, new tab page, search engine, and pinned tabs. It will also disable all extensions and clear temporary data like cookies. Your bookmarks, history and saved passwords will NOT be cleared). 3. You may or may not be familiar with Chrome's Developer tools: Right click on the top-level page you're trying to change (i.e. Dropzone.com); Click on "Inspect" Find the Width somewhere at the top of the left window and highlight it. In the right window; write down the width it has so you can put it back to where it was. Click on that width in the right window and then use the wheel on your mouse to increase or decrease it. (If it gets ugly - put it back to what you wrote down - then go find an IT guy to help. 4. Or, just try Google's "Fit to Width" extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/fit-to-width/dfdmbpdbpocelpgahddghhkomnefchkl?hl=en Hope one of these helps.
  6. So, I stumbled across this somewhat older thread - But, I'd like to say; my Falcon 300 gave me tippy toe landings for years. (It was my reserve also).
  7. Way too logical and not enough of what he wanted to hear.
  8. I'm having a hard time with this statement. The proportional spacing of letters in the digital world helps to read even faster than the old monospacing of typewriters. Used to drive me nuts when a lowercase "i" was jammed between two letters. That would slow me down.
  9. Love it. Years of both Harley & skydiving shit would go in mine. The "Last Load Lounge" would HAVE to have the requisite cable spool table for ambience. My only question is - Where ya gonna put the stripper pole?
  10. All will help you achieve your goal.
  11. A guy is walking past an insane asylum when he hears the residents inside chanting, "Thirteen! Thirteen! Thirteen!" Curious, he finds a hole in the wall and looks in. Immediately he's poked in the eye, then everyone inside starts chanting, "Fourteen! Fourteen! Fourteen!" _______________________________ Three men wait at the gates of heaven on Christmas Eve. They're told they have to present a Christmas gift to get in. The first man checks his pockets and finds pine needles from his family's tree. He's allowed in. The second hands over a bow and some ribbon. He's allowed in. The third man pulls out a pair of panties. "How do those represent Christmas?" St. Peter asks him. "Oh," the man replies, "they're Carol's." _______________________________ A man thinks he is a dog, so he goes to see a psychiatrist. "It's terrible," says the man. "I walk around on all fours, I keep barking in the middle of the night, and I can't go past a lamppost anymore." "Okay," says the psychiatrist. "Get on the couch." The man replies, "I'm not allowed on the couch." _______________________________ What did the elephant say to the naked guy? "Fine, but can it pick up peanuts?" _______________________________ A woman asked her grandmother how her grandfather had died. "He had a heart attack while we were making love one Sunday morning," Granny said. Horrified, the granddaughter told her that two people that old having sex would surely be asking for trouble. "Oh, no," said Granny. "Many years ago we realized that ringing church bells provided the perfect rhythm: in on the ding and out on the dong." She paused, wiped away a tear, and continued, "But then the ice-cream truck came along." _______________________________ "Two drivers climb out of their cars after colliding at an intersection. One pulls a flask from his pocket and says, "Here, have a nip of whiskey to calm your nerves." "Thanks," says the other driver, taking a swig. "Here, you have one, too." "Nah, I'd rather not — the police will be here soon." _______________________________
