  1. I have got so many of those kind of stories... Stubborn as an ox but always laughing. Man that guy was funny! The bums will never win Lebowski, the bums will never win! Enfin j'ai trouvé: Bieeeen
  2. Then you will remember his laugh... ... and his frap hat... The bums will never win Lebowski, the bums will never win! Enfin j'ai trouvé: Bieeeen
  3. This can't be true!! I am kind of hoping it's one of his jokes again. Fly free you mad man, Cathie, the girls and I are going to miss the mad scientist with an unforgettable laugh. I still can't believe it! poc Edited to add pic thanks to Jochen. This was on set last year. Again we're going to miss you crazy frenchman. Very few people I have met can say they have had fuller a life. The bums will never win Lebowski, the bums will never win! Enfin j'ai trouvé: Bieeeen

  5. Even with a partial or total inversion you could land the thing right? .... It seemed very plausible to me until you posted.... The bums will never win Lebowski, the bums will never win! Enfin j'ai trouvé: Bieeeen
  6. Very cool, not boring at all. Thanks The bums will never win Lebowski, the bums will never win! Enfin j'ai trouvé: Bieeeen

    Lattest addition. Got quite a collection of these clay ones building up. 1 week and 1/2 then I will be back up country. On my return I will be starting on the life size one. The bums will never win Lebowski, the bums will never win! Enfin j'ai trouvé: Bieeeen
  10. There is an 'E' here that is a popular tourist attraction. One can get to the top via a cable car. There is sometimes quite a crowd when we jump it. I was doing a solo from there a while back and there was a little boy and his mom on the lookout directly above me. The boy must have been about 5 years old. As I leaped off, I heard him scream in distress: "nooooooooooo!!!!!!" I felt quite bad because the kid was really crying and I hope he felt better once he saw the canopy. My wife respects the fact that I jump, even encourages me to go jump when I am all depressed and stuff but she doesn't want the girls to watch me jump. She has never done a skydive, but she learnt to pack and used to pack with me at the dz. In the time I would pack 3 rigs, she would pack one, but her pack jobs were the neatest I have ever seen. She has cumulated enough technical knowledge on parachutes to be well aware of the dangers of BASE. She is also a nursing sister and deals with hectic injuries on a daily basis. About 2/3 of the way to my father in law's place, about 4 hours drive from home there is a bridge. I would consider it a crime to go over that bridge and not jump it. My wife is ok with taking a radio, no long faces and guilt trips when I get back up, but she just won't watch or let the girls watch. I sometimes think that the sooner you understand that we're all dying, the stronger it will make you and the harder you will fight. I suppose the answer is somewhere in between: It's ok for your kids to understand that accidents happen or that when it's your time to go it's your time to go, but just try and spare them the horror of watching you get hurt or even watching you go. Well, that's enough rambling and agreeing to disagree on what I agree with for a while; I am off to the big city to go make some money and hopefully get my 'B'... ...and nobody can rime like me yo poc The bums will never win Lebowski, the bums will never win!

    Sure, I have had mixed feelings about that one. Look, a statue shouldn't have a major impact on the environment and bolting is something climbers do every day. There would be no threat to the animal and plant life really...... well ok, I am still thinking about it but I can assure you that if I do it I'm not going to drive a humvee and take a group of 50 to install the thing.

    I feel this warrants another reply; The site is apparently private property. The water is a reserve in that crawfish and abalone fishing are forbidden. That doesn't stop the poachers though and early in the morning we spot quite a few of them from the top; in fact, they know us now... it gets quite freaky walking through there sometimes.

    hey Will, Somebody sent me this link. Consider it my reply. I had seen some of the stuff but never knew who it was. you guys probably know all about him. ps: the link seems to work better in Safari for some reason.
