  1. Is that average for a modern canopy? Long? It's been 11 years since I've jumped, so I've forgotten what is typical.
  2. How long is the snivel? Much altitude lost?
  3. I don't know what happened to it, but I do know there is an alternative in Skydive Fayetteville. I don't jump anymore, but I did stop by there a few weeks ago and saw several of the Skyranch folks. The facility is really nice and I'm told that it is a great place to jump.
  4. People that are not from Tornado Alley tend to be overly concerned about our weather. Don't give it a thought. Go to a DZ you like. It was a long time ago, but I've made a few jumps at SD Dallas and was very impressed.
  5. Wow. You have it ten times worse than I do. Good luck.
  6. I've been diagnosed with the same thing. Question: Do you feel the pain more in your arm than you do your shoulder? I do and I've been told that it is what's called "referred pain."
  7. I've made a couple of student jumps at what is now Skydive Spaceland Dallas (travelling) and it was excellent.
  8. This one is powered by a diesel engine and the propeller is right below you.
  9. Took a while, but yes. I was not a skydiver at the time.
  10. I went there about 33 years ago and was very determined to "get the hang of it." I think I dropped $100 which got me around an hour of tunnel time. The next day I was so sore I could barely drive. If I were to do it again today, I'm sure I would be in a wheelchair.
  11. Sounds like anywhere, not just the DZ. That's just the way people are.
  12. If you use an 8,000' static line, what would your exit altitude be? 11,500'? You would need a jumpmaster with really big hands to manage it. Sorry!
  13. Yes. I am having trouble from a couple of ankle injuries from 32 years ago. A lot of injuries from the past can come back to visit.
  14. It isn't that hard to use the search function: http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=4718202#4718202 Thanks. I thought the entire thread had been deleted.
