  5. Don't forget how to pack now that you're doing all those re-TARDed jumps congrats to ERIC With his "E" jump completed last week in Moab Eric qualified for his BASE #!!!!! Nice work Any wagers on what his number will be? My guess is 1122
  6. some cranes that do not have a center walkway have a 6" to 8" beam on the outside you walk along. They will have a safety cable attached so bring along a biner or two and some webbing and you're good to go. **suggestion** do not touch the lifting cable or spooled cable... it's covered in grease

  10. You should have been wearing that wedding dress I saw you in a couple of years ago in GA to make the jump even better, knucklehead
  11. So were you jumping your ultra hip Raven when you were "hanging" around Moab? Performing a TARD over off a cliff, using shallow brake settings, was not the canopies fault. I know you're right.... it was user error

  13. I can understand that skydiving can become less attractive and not as fun but I am not talking about having fun, I'm talking about learning the skills you may need to save your ass in a somewhat safe environment. Too many people are trying to get into BASE and they don't even know BASIC canopy skills and they don't even want to learn them. This totally boggles my mind... I think that people just are not taking the risks involved in BASE seriously anymore. I think people are just too wrapped up in their 'got to have it now' attitudes. I really hope this is not you, but from what I'm seeing... it is. BASE IS a dangerous activity.... period. Don't think anthing different, and don't let anyone else tell you differently. Please respect is accordingly
  14. Yes there are... and NO I'm not interested in teaching you with only 120 skydives in 3 years At 40 jumps per year you are not current enough and you don't have enough experience overall. Do yourself a favor and make more skydives. Jason
  15. I'm pretty sure RH knows about this jump. I think I have a picture of the tower in question somewhere.... if it's the one I'm thinking of they cut off the top half of it . Now it only stands about 500-600ft tall. Jason
  16. If you don't want anyone to see you and you don't want to get caught, try jumping at night. It's not that scary Jason 570
  17. Don't get me wrong... we were prepared for the jump. We got the same great info from JM. We went up to the top with gear and warm sleeping bags but it still got really cold at the top. We exited at the proper spot but due to funky winds we only made it half way down the mountain, landing on the little road that zig zagged it's way down. It sounds like we were there the same time you were... we must have missed you by a few days. We did run into DW at the dam a few days before this jump. He was jumping his skyboard.... I thought he was crazy! He performed the jump very well, doing his intended front flip, but ended up having a 120 off heading with a twist. He corrected it and landed uneventfully. Were you there too? I only remember him jumping but there was someone with him. BTW, Nice pic of the cable car jump. catch ya later, Jason 570
  18. I also visited this spot back in 1999. It is for sure a sketchy exit!! It seemed like the wind was constantly blowing and it was as cold as a witches tit. 515 and I decided to scrap our plans to jump this and decided to move across the valley and jump some cable cars instead. This jump was no piece of cake either.... we almost froze to death sleeping atop the mountain waiting for dawn and our ride to start up! And talk about strange having to 'spot' your exit point... I thought you only did that in skydiving! 515 almost broke his ankle trying to land in squirrely winds on a 45degree slope. We then had to hike out for 2 hours. Still one of my favorite jumps to this day as I'm sure 515 will agree. And not a bad consolation prize either. Congrats to the few brave/crazy soles who have managed to get off it. I'll get back there some day..... Jason 570
  19. Ha ha I'm not laughing at you, I swear! At least you didn't end up with a busted chin Glad you at least put up a fight! Cya, Jason
  20. An escort would be great for Rob!!! He likes tall Swedish men I heard

    Illegal Drugs

    Oh, I haven't forgotten about Salvia. I tried her about 6 years ago and didn't get any effects... but I recently tried her again while in Brazil while on an Ayahuasca journey. I hit level 6, which is a bit disappointing since I was wanting to remember something. One of the things that I have witnessed when people try this herb is that uncontrollable laughter occurs. I'm not sure if it's out of pure fright or just sheer amazement. Slavia is a very strong hallicinogen and should be taken wisely and only for spirtual journeys, in my opinion. Salvia along with a few other entheogens should not be used for recreational purposes because the user will not get the true meaning behind the colors and visions and therefore only see the 'drug' as a 'drug' and not what it really is... which in my opinion is a mind expanding, ego busting, inner-self exploratory device. As you said it is not physically addictive like most 'drugs', in fact none of the 'drugs' I list as entheogens are addictive. Natural drugs such as mushrooms, salvia, marajuana, kratom, iboga, peyote, lsd and ayahuasca to name a few, if used correctly, are here to help us see what is truly important in life. They help us to break free from the mental chains that bind us in this reality and also stop addictions that may be destroying us. These 'drugs' are truly mind expanders and it's a damn shame they are looked at with such disgust by the general public. The world governments have done a great job of scaring 'us' into believing we will go crazy by trying these entheogens. Always be safe when trying new things and remember that the 'Set and Setting' play a huge role in what you may or may not get out of your experience. Oh and have a sitter to help you in case you start to freak Jason
  22. not really. officially it is a "B". At the risk of stirring up the ongoing debate on object classification... It doesn't have the "B" hazards. It does however, meet the parameters of an "S", in spite of being indoors. 359 I logged my two indoor jumps as "O"'s. Whether it is logged as an SO(or)B, it's still a very unique jump. Nice work to all who put together the German BASE cup!! I'll be expecting my invitaion for next years event So were there any weather holds? I know how those tropical beach areas can get Cya, Jason
  23. I'll be in Brazil for 2 weeks starting tomorrow
