  1. Stop being selfish. I think we ALL want that. The question is whether she will actually heed that or continue to futilely pursue her "quest" and annoy everyone further. Unfortunately, I suspect the latter.
  2. Reason this is in General Skydiving and not the Bonfire?
  3. Perris/Eloy probably...but you list Spokane as your location. Maybe Kapowsin or nearby. I don't know Washington well.
  4. While you say you don't need "beginner detail", it sure would help your credibility here if you filled out your profile more. Just a friendly reminder.
  5. I have over 600 KA jumps and the plane I've jumped with the vast majority of those 600 wore a pilot rig.
  6. I've never NOT seen a King Air pilot wear one.
  7. +1 I don't have any affiliation with PD, but since you mentioned the Sabre2, check this out for a demo: http://www.performancedesigns.com/sport-demos-europe/ http://www.performancedesigns.com/sport-demos-europe/ Another +1. Do this first. Then try a 170 if all seems good. Eventually, with more jumps on both these (demos...for a bit), you may want to settle for a 150 (barely over 1:1). This was actually close to my weight out the door and progression in your jump numbers.
  8. same question here haha.. Post 20 summed it up well. http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=4601567;search_string=Sky%20board;#4601567 When I was new to the sport around 2003-4, I remember asking someone about skysurfing who had done it a few times. He said that it looked good on camera (e.g. Patrick Gayardon/Rob Harris), but wasn't that fun to do in his opinion - just like doing a bunch of flips by yourself in freefall. The normal skydiving disciplines were more fun. Note: for the newbies, Harris died while filming a Mountain Dew commercial in 95 and Gayardon died in 98 due to a rigging error (either his pilot chute or main accidentally stitched to the container). But there is cool footage online if you're interested - especially on the Good Stuff DVD.
  9. I've had similar...except that I don't "go in", but end up magically slowing down and gently landing on my feet at the last second...and always think its weird even during the dream. Sounds like a wingsuiter dream. I hear ya....but I've only been wingsuiting for a couple years now. These dreams happened well before so I wouldn't really have the reference. It was more like a superman flying thing.

  11. (quoting a post from the locked crosspost thread) But according to Jeb Corliss, skydiving is like walking across the street to get a muffin! Totally safe! (Unless one considers getting hit by a car crossing the street more dangerous than rollercoasters.)
  12. I cut a piece of old line off so my roommate could hold a pork roast together. Never mind that they were a bit dirty though. This was a couple years ago now.
  13. I can't believe I listened to nearly an hour of that silliness. Oh, well - at least I got a real perspective of the nut jobs there. I just hope they eventually give up and stop bother Mile-Hi.
