    Neck breaking camera set-up...

    This makes my neck hurt just thinking about it...

    Eli Thompson

    I still can't believe it. Blue skies, Eli. I really don't know what I'm talking about.
  3. Anybody have a decent resolution x-ray image of a rig with a Cypres? I have my Cypres card, but I'd love to laminate one for my bag tag and have a printout I can keep in the bag... I really don't know what I'm talking about.

    Suunto Core

    I dig it, it works well enough. Would I trust it as my only altimeter? Nah, not unless it was a solo where I was staring at the ground the whole time. As it stands, it's my fifth altimeter [wrist, chest, 2x audible], so why not? I really don't know what I'm talking about.
  5. We came this close to shooting the ad practically, too... OB was set to fly camera originally. I really don't know what I'm talking about.

    Tunnel size when learning to freefly

    The tunnel is plenty large for learning to freefly in, don't worry. Even though the Perris tunnel is larger, the Hollywood tunnel will be cheaper, more powerful and may be closer to where you live [I know it is for me!]. I've worked on my sit in the Hollywood tunnel and I'm currently learning head-down in there. I wish it was bigger, sure, but it's still big enough to get done what you need to get done. As the windspeeds go up and you learn to grab the air a little better, you'll find that you spend a decent amount of time up in the larger area of the tunnel anyways. Only once while learning head-down did I start myself in the "wrong" position, putting my feet in contact with the wall. I've also found that the tunnel isn't quite large enough for a back carve [at least when you're sloppy like me...]. So go for it! And dream that maybe someday it'll grow up to be a 12-footer... I really don't know what I'm talking about.

    Trick with tandem

    It was up there for a while, but the original discussion around the "questionable tandem" eventually led to it being pulled. I had the video online after it vanished from SDM, but I pulled it after the TI and his lawyer contacted me. I really don't know what I'm talking about.
  8. Strike 2! I was not below the formation. Blame the beer. I really don't know what I'm talking about.
  9. Heheh, that was stupid. I'm just not used to seeing shots from so far below a formation [because I'm not used to seeing formations this large!]. I really don't know what I'm talking about.
  10. What was your focal length on that surface-air shot? Was it on a cropped camera or full frame? I have an idea... I really don't know what I'm talking about.
  11. More jumping tomorrow? I really don't know what I'm talking about.
  12. Ah, bummer, i'm working Monday. I really don't know what I'm talking about.
  13. Hey Spot, are the attempts today or tomorrow? I might get out there with a camera and a few long lenses. I really don't know what I'm talking about.

    My new Voodoo

    Nah, you don't need a job to get a rig like that! I really don't know what I'm talking about.
  15. There's nothing like seeing a student snap a center-point turn on AFF3... I really don't know what I'm talking about.
