  1. It can work the other way too... I am getting paid by my rigging mentor. He has enough work for both of us to keep busy. I don't do any repacks for customers, but I've supported myself by spending hours at a sewing machine just learning, and I can make a mean line set.

  2. Then Lodi is not the place for you. You have to do a tandem first here. "I reject your reality and substitute my own" ~Adam Savage
  3. When I graduated at Lodi when I was 18 they drove me straight to the market and made me buy beer right then. Man, that was the good ol' days. "I reject your reality and substitute my own" ~Adam Savage
  4. I'm doing a marketing project focusing on introducing products to India. It would really be helpful if I can find someone who has been part of the culture there (not just a visitor). Thanks! "I reject your reality and substitute my own" ~Adam Savage
  5. Yes, Pete Swan fixed that rig. In fact he did all of the repairs and repacks for the event, which surprisingly wasn't all that much :). "I reject your reality and substitute my own" ~Adam Savage
  6. Well you kicked Kathy in the face! In fact I think you kicked all the girls you jumped with...then again you were only jumping with girls. "I reject your reality and substitute my own" ~Adam Savage
  7. NO! I explained the rules to you earlier! Besides I don't let people in my club that ruin perfectly good freefly jumps by kicking others in the face. "I reject your reality and substitute my own" ~Adam Savage
  8. well, let me put it this way... When I'm driving (in the U.S.
  9. Hey, I did search...not too thoroughly , but I did search! And that thread is older than my jumping career. Besides, I'm not really talking about switching to left handed, just always being left handed.... I feel lonely pulling left with no cool injury story to go with it.

  10. I just got a message from a friend that asked if there was a crazy left handed jumper club. So far the only person I know that jumps exclusively left handed is me. I made 40 skydives on student/rental gear with a right pull. After that I was done with struggling to pull right handed. I am a very left handed person. Most days it doesn't seem like my brain even connects to my right hand. Both my skydiving and BASE jumping rigs are left handed BOC with emergency handles not moved, and I usually get a very funny response when people notice. Anyway, does anyone else jump exclusively left handed? I know a few that switched it after an injury, but I know I can't be the only one who did this just because it feels better.

    Used to be a place called Hot Rocks...don't know if it's still open. "I reject your reality and substitute my own" ~Adam Savage
  13. I did laugh at it. For a second . Then I thought about it, and I argee. I'd rather have no list than that on it. "I reject your reality and substitute my own" ~Adam Savage
  14. now really... how many people have jumped with a dead jumper AFTER they passed away? does anybody care to admit it? Ash dives? I would count that as jumping with someone after they died. Then again, I think that some of my friends that are now gone are with me on every jump...but that's just sappy stuff. "I reject your reality and substitute my own" ~Adam Savage

    I would say that's your biggest problem right now... I have a big, long response in my mind, but I'm in the middle of studying for a final. On a slightly different topic, I never knew why so many people in here were such, well, jerks to those that post comments like that. Guess what guys? After two years I get it now!
