  1. I replaced my Left Knee in April 2016 - I was jumping by June and doing tandems by July - It was sore, and originally hard to bend fully, but I rehabbed that mother like no tomorrow. I replaced my Right Knee in December and didn't jump until March or April. It stayed stiff until this month. I rehabbed it hard this time too, but I'm older 65+ so the time to heal was a lot slower. My surgeon brags to his patients I have 1600 jumps on my new left knee.
  2. Let me update my answer. The DZO is closing in on 50 and I'm 64 with 3000 tandems. Heck I have over a 1000 tandems on my new knee. Age is a hell of lot more than a number! STEVEMACHINE!
  3. BSBD Hand carved, original, OOAK, Hobo Nickel on EBay now. steveOrino
  4. I carved this for a GK and it got lost in the mail so I made him another one. Today the Post Office returned it to me. It is now on EBay for anyone who wants to bid on it. steveOrino
  5. The time on EBay on this one is almost up. I included another skydiver coin with it. Two for the price of one! steveOrino

  10. Check out my latest Hobo Nickel on Ebay steveOrino
  11. Unless it is cold I don't wear a helmet now (I did when I started because I wore a protrack) Most of my students don't either. I only have 2500 tandems but have never been head butted because I'm looking UP at the canopy as I deploy. And as one who was given head lice by a pastor visiting from Africa, I don't blame people for not wanting to put a hat on their head worn by 100s of people. steveOrino
  12. One halloween I jumped in a reggae dread lock wig under my helmet. As I deployed I felt a hesitation before canopy inflation. Then I felt the canopy open. A good assumption was the dreads got caught in 3 ring system or risers. Never again! steveOrino
  13. +1 Nothing prepares you for the AFFI course like practicing Cat C&D jumps with an AFFI or a tunnel rat who knows what that is. And learn to teach a class. All the 4 way skills in the world won't help you with that part of the course. IMHO docking on a 4 way ain't nothing like chasing a student across the sky, stopping spins and flipping upside down students. steveOrino
