  1. I have thousands of jumps and decades in the sport. There are still occasionally jumps where something doesn't go as I planned. Don't stress yourself out. If everybody tells you that you had an awesome recovery (and your instructors are saying that too) believe them and move on. I'll tell you a little secret. A barrel roll has no purpose whatsoever in the sport of skydiving. It is used during training for you to learrn that you can go unstable and then recover by yourself. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  2. A whuffo might think "space cadet" would be derogatory, but I kinda like it. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  3. It would be damned difficult to lock feet together and hold a downplane. When I did downplanes we grabbed each others' harnesses. When one of us let go the sudden increased load on the other guy's grip was enough to cause him to let go. This is kinda like turf surfing (aka swooping) or any other out of the norm activity. If you don't have experience in it you tend to think it is really dangerous, don't you think? "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  4. Where is this at? It looks a lot like San Marcos, Texas. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  5. Holy dead thread, Batman! Bedsitter people look back and lament, Another days' useless energy is spent. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  6. Deleted. Wasn't funny enough. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  7. My favorite is "Blame it on Rio". "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  8. Is that defined as the adult "wedgie"? "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  9. I may have just stumbled onto what you might be remembering. It is a Zunndapp Janus. Bob "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  10. There are 87 posts to this thread, now 88. As far as me, I never met the man so I have nothing to add to the list of condolences. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  11. Got any camera purchases in mind? "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  12. He could sue the manufacturer of the airplane, the manufacturer of the propeller, the installer of the avionics, the aviation fuel delivery company, and the people who poured the asphault. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."

    The skydive is over after they land. The instruction is over after the debrief. Come to think of it, the instruction is never over. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  14. You might be more successful with this. tcwebber@mac.com and kimbo@westcosteeltruss.com "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  15. Yeah, but it wasn't their phault. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  16. Yes, I do. I still have one or two around somewhere. I actually got one as change at a fast food restaurant. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  17. I've read all 29 posts and think nobody has come up with a proper explanation for the huge amound of roses presented to you. The "one month anniversary" is just a coincidence. Your blowing up at him caught him totally by suprise, which is usually the case, and he is sitting there wondering what the hell he did to deserve that outburst. He then ran out of the house and bought lots of roses in a classic sentimental display of affection in the hopes of soothing the ruffled feathers, still not knowing what the hell just happened. He knows to please the lady you have to please the lady. A blowjob would be a nice method of payment, I do believe. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  18. Dog. A big dog. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  19. I figured it out. Here's a couple more, then I'll stop with the thread hijack. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  20. Here is the Messerschmidt. EDIT : Well, I tried to upload photos but they aren't here. Maybe I'll figure it out. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  21. The smallest car in the west has to be the BMW Isetta. There are actually Isetta fan clubs here in the U.S. One of the enduring memories for me is being tied to the phone in the kitchen. It was a luxury when we got one of those 20ft handset cords. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  22. Awww, it's cute. It looks bigger than a Mini. Is it? "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  23. And then we had Rock 'em Sock 'em boxers, then Pong. Edit : I just did a Google search and realized they're still being made. Oh, well. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
  24. If they hand me a cup of ice and a can of coke on each flight I really don't mind. I've never gotten on an airline flight with the intention of getting laid anyway. "For you see, an airplane is an airplane. A landing area is a landing area. But a dropzone... a dropzone is the people."
