  1. It has been a long and painful trip back but this weekend I made my 42nd jump at Skydive Green County. After my accident back in 2006 at Skydive Wayne County it took alot of hard work but the jump was incredable. I would like to thank my skydiving family for all of the support and advise you gave me and my wife who had to put up with me threw it all and then stand on the ground and watch me fly away and know that I will be back to see her in about 25min. Thanks again to you all!!!!!! STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!! LATER SKYBOMB
  2. I just picked mine up from SSK in Ohio after I had an 8 year service done on it and they told me that alot of time they will have a few of them for sale there. Sometimes people dont pick them up or they have some that they rent out and sell sometimes, so if you give them a call you might get lucky. there number is (513) 934-3201 STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!!

  3. I was the victim of a premature reserve deployment on climb out of a 182 and got hung up on the horizontal stablizer with damage to the plane and a lot of hospital time I am still here. Not recommended to try, it could of killed a plane load of my friends. allways practice good plane safety!! STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!! LATER SKYBOMB
  4. I started to jump when I was 39 and had a bad skydiving accident at age 41 but am hopeful that this spring will bring my next jump and I can rejoin my skydiving friends in the blue skys again!! STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!! LATER SKYBOMB
  5. I did not start jumping until I was 40 and had a bad accident in 2006. I have been married for 20 years and she stood by my side threw recovery and she said she would be there if i manage to get back to jumping next year. STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!! LATER SKYBOMB

  7. Yes I have been hanging out at the dropzones alot I have 3 of them within 1 hour of the house. I have lots o friends there and they have been nothing but supportive for me, Stratostar is a very good friend of mine and has been very supportive I just need to wipe the demands and get back in the air. I hope that evrything goes great for you and that you get back into the air soon. STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!! LATER SKYBOMB
  8. Hey everybody I am thinking of making my first jump back after my accident last year. I was thinking about next weekend but I have been saying that for weeks now. I know that the skydive will be great once I am out the door it's just going near the door, the fear of being pulled out by my reserve is sometimes over whelming. I was hoping that my skydiving family would have some words of encouragemnet that might not put it out of my mind but help ease me back into it so I can feel the rush again.

  9. I to have an MC-4 but mine is a gray color. My rigger had no problem converting it over to BOC and also put a cypress in it for me. On windy days it is hard to get penetration but it is a very slow and comfortable ride, enjoy the ride. STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!! LATER SKYBOMB
  10. good I am glad he could help, STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!! LATER SKYBOMB
  11. when I needed a packing manual a man on here that goes by the name MJO Sparky had everything on disk and he sent it to me, if you cant get ahold of him pm me with your address and I will have a copy made and send it to you. STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!! LATER SKYBOMB
  12. Yes I was hurt last July when my reserve deployed out the door and it cut 4 line . I spiraled to the ground and broke my back and shattered my left ankle. I spent 2 months in hospital and 2 months at home on my back, been back to work for awhile and if everything goes well after my last doctors appoint ment in August I will be jumping again.

  13. My kids love to go to Mcdonalds but I got tired of not getting the right food that i ordered so I just got to the point that when they hand me the food I don't move out of line until I check everything. Sometimes they get kind of mad but usually there is something wrong and it shuts them up real quick. Yes you are not dealing with rocket science but how hard can it be to put the whole bun on a burger. STEP OUT AND FEEL THE RUSH!!!! LATER SKYBOMB
  14. I had only one malfunction, my reserve came out as I was exiting a cessna 182 wrapping with the tail and then spiraling to the ground. 4 months later and some rehab I am back to work on light duty but unfortunetly my jumping days are over due to the back repair, but if I could i would be jumping tommorrow.
