  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!

  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
