    Taking a break

    Look around for a good deal on used student gear from time to time. It's what I did. I only make anywhere from 1-10 jumps a year these days. I got an old Javelin with a 250/260 canopy combination for about $2k. "No cookies for you"- GFD "I don't think I like the sound of that" ~ MB65 Don't be a "Racer Hater"

    "Really, I was in the Army..."

    I still like the story I heard at Ft. Benning back in the '80s. Two MP's approach a guy wearing a class A uniform at the Columbus airport. On his sleeves he has Sergeant stripes and on his lapels he has the bronze oak leafs of a Major. The MP's inquire as to what rank he's supposed to be and he replies, "Sergeant Major".

    Latest on Tipping

    Tipping an instructor is quite easy if proper stealth is used. Just give a packer, S&TA, or DZO a fiver and have them get down on their hands and knees behind the instructor of choice. (The hands and knees bit should come quite naturally for the packers and S&TA. You may have to work with the DZO a bit.) Then lightly push the instuctor in the chest area. They tip over quite easily as they have no balance on the ground. "No cookies for you"- GFD "I don't think I like the sound of that" ~ MB65 Don't be a "Racer Hater"

  11. Oh I know all to well how devastating it can be. I'm still paying off 25K in medical bills. And actually had to trade/sell off gear and other possesions to support myself during the healing process.

    Would this situation annoy you?

    Yes. That is one of the reasons I hardly ever donate to organized charities. I dated a woman who was the manager of a NPO solicitation group for a diverse range of charities. She appeared to be doing quite well for being such a martyr. Turns out that most of the money you donate to organized charities goes to pay for the operating and promotional expenses of the NPO. And the salaries of it's employees. Most often 10% or even less of your money goes to the actual charity.

  14. What are the communities feelings on this ? I personally have no problem with a family or persons setting up a fund with a bank to be managed by someone responsible to defray medical expenses. Especially for those with extensive injuries that will probably result in a permanent disability. On the other hand, I do have a problem with people asking for donations to help with financial obligations, day to day expenses, and incidentals like room decor ?!?. WTF ? Really ? People say, "Oh, they're going to lose their house, car, boat, RV, or whatever. And their credit is going to be ruined. Everybody should pitch in and help them". My personal answer is tough shit, they shouldn't have been skydiving "No cookies for you"- GFD "I don't think I like the sound of that" ~ MB65 Don't be a "Racer Hater"
