  1. No kidding! Never thought it could happen...it did! "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But, the self is not something that one finds. It is something that one creates"- Thomas Szasz
  2. I have 2 Nitro 108s and they have both just "Started" to do this. I thought maybe the line sets were getting old, but I just replaced one of them 20 jumps ago and it is still doing it. I have to think that it has something to do with the tightness of my chest strap as that is the only thing that changed around the time it started to get stuck (mine stops at about the halfway point). After finding myself on my head with my rig around my elbows, I have started tightening my chest strap as tight as I possible can. I think I am going to begin experimenting with leaving it looser on belly jumps and seeing if it still happens. "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself.

  3. Unlike my husband, I like to jump a nice square Spectre with a wingsuit...prevents me from having to chop borrowed gear! :-) "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But, the self is not something that one finds. It is something that one creates"- Thomas Szasz
  4. Voodoo is bringing his wingsuit as well!! Maybe I'll bring mine....just means I have to bring another canopy too. "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But, the self is not something that one finds. It is something that one creates"- Thomas Szasz
  5. +3 I prefer an open face, but sometimes, I have to wear a full face and the Mamba is the best! "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But, the self is not something that one finds. It is something that one creates"- Thomas Szasz
  6. See you there! No, the "kids" will be staying at home this time. You should see how big he has gotten though!! "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But, the self is not something that one finds. It is something that one creates"- Thomas Szasz
  7. We've got a Taft contingent slowly coming together. I've got 7 confirmed...maybe 11...... Can't wait! "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But, the self is not something that one finds. It is something that one creates"- Thomas Szasz
  8. I have a W5 that I normally have a Nitro 108 in. I recently got a Spectre 135 to wongsuit with and it is a tight fit in the W7....doable, but very tight (way tighter than the Nitro 107)..... ________________________________________________ "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself.

  9. I have been demoing a 150 Pulse and the thing is absolutely amazing! I tried several ways to pack it funky and it opened on heading every single time. For those who have enjoyed the sweet consistent openings of the Spectre, you can now have those same openings with a 9 cell canopy that actually flies really nice as well! This is the ultimate wingsuit canopy! "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But, the self is not something that one finds.

  10. Heal quick Lisa! Argus sends big sloppy bulldog kisses your way!!
  11. LOL!!! I click this link worried that Argus is going out of business and I'm worried cause Alex and I have 3 of them and I see a post about my dog Argus....too funny!

  12. Taft is probably more than 50% freeflyers. The majority of students that we put through AFF end up becoming freeflyers. One of our best is Jeff who won the Freefly Money Meet in Eloy last year. Skydive San Joaquin is about 20 minutes from Taft, but they only fly loads when they have enough people. When you stop on by for the first time, ask for Mel. I'll do your first jump there with you! _________________________________________________ "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself.

  13. A memorial service will be held at 11 AM on Monday, January 12th at Westside Believers Fellowship in Taft, CA. It will be immediately followed by an ash dive. If you have any photos of Scotty we could use for the service, please email them to [email protected] "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself.

  14. Skydive Taft is devastated by the loss of Scotty Stonebraker. Scotty passed away late Monday night . We know that Scotty had friends all over the country at DZs he worked for and jumped at (especially in California and Hawaii). We are having a memorial service / ash dive for Scotty. If you would like information about attending or if you have any footage of Scotty that we could edit into a memorial video, please PM me.

  15. We have a group of jumpers from Lancaster who jump at Taft (about 30 of them...called the Tumbleweeds....seriously)). It is about an hour and a half from Lancaster to the DZ. Yes, you'd be living in the desert, but we have year round jumping in southern CA! _________________________________________________ "People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself.
