    This looks like an older Craigslist posting, whuffo sent it to me. Not sure if it was supposed to be a joke, or if some non jumper found a cutaway main and is being a punk, or what. I thought is put this up in case anyone in NM has lost a chute and never
  2. That's one way to say it, or maybe the company decided to raise the rates and he didn't want to be a sucker. figured he could save money and didn't need the billboard. If you don't need it, why pay for it? Good business. MY point is, if this happened a couple miles up the road with the situation swapped, these forums might explode. So there I was...

  3. I'm not skyride folks either, I'm pro-black sheep (not directed at Wendy) I still can't believe the blurred line you all impose on dropzones vs. skyride. The lack of business (bisiness?) knowledge in these forums is astounding. I will rejoin all you Delta Bravos upon my return from Maui. If any of you are in Maui the next few days, PM me and we'll get drinks + party. Confusing the confused since 1983 -Brett So there I was... Making friends and playing nice since 1983

  5. I'm not doubting something to those effects were said, I just want to see the actual text. If you're quoting someone from a public document, you may as well make it accurate. So there I was... Making friends and playing nice since 1983

  7. I don't have a dog in this fight, but if I were on the BOD I'd be laughing. I only got halfway through the letter. First, it was WAY too long, it should have been kept to 1 page maximum, ultimately requesting a meeting, call, or some kind of follow up on a later date where you can flesh out your concerns, with a date specified where you will follow up through another avenue of communication if you hear nothing. Second, it reminded me of a child between say, 1st and 3rd grade whining to their parents about a teacher they didn't like. Third, it screamed bias. You are the only one expressing concern over this. for all they know you made this stuff up or embellished it because of one disagreement. Include signatures from your peers. Lastly, it's one letter. You may want to consider some kind of follow up to your single letter prior to b*tching on the internet in an open forum. That's all I got, Brett edit: Craig, i don't see you listed/CC'd on the letter So there I was... Making friends and playing nice since 1983
  8. Already terms in place- tunnel flier tunnel rat Marketing allows them to stay open and for me to pay low rates. Call it whatever you want as long as I get to play with it cheap. Eating the wall at 160 MPH rules, Brett So there I was... Making friends and playing nice since 1983

  13. My alti froze on my AFF 7 @ 7000 feet. I realized it probably around 5, pulled a little low at the time in the 3.5 range, landed and passed. That was AFF 7. If you're too retarded to make the right decision or not know what the wrong decisions are, please inform me prior to takeoff and I will find another load to join. edit: little harsh i guess, but isn't this covered in FJC?

  14. I have about 550 jumps on safires, they open slow which i like, sometimes my slider gets hung up halfway down cuz of the slow opening, same w/an end cell being partially closed. never thrown me into line twists but will sometimes cause an off heading opening. I'll post a vid tonight of a slider hang up this weekend, no big deal. if the openings are hard and this stuff is happening, may be lines, but also be conscious of body position on deployment. saf.2 149 @ 1.6 So there I was...

  15. I made a tandem on a TG break in college and was hooked. I then drove to a DZ in nor cal 120 miles away every day for 11 or 12 days straight intending to do big things and get my license while home over winter break. I literally spent 2 weeks driving to and from the DZ to watch clouds go by. I made one AFF jump in that time. Went back to school and drove 250 miles each way every weekend to a DZ for the next two years til i graduated college and moved
