    Gravity and Fury Matchup!

    Hammo, I think the next tie breaker should be a body-shot round. It's easier to judge.... last one standing, etc. Shark out.

    Not an option yet. It's basically like a normal d-bag with the locking stows on the flap, then instead of top-of-bag stowes there is a pocket in which those lines are S-folded, in the same manner some free-bags are. There is one last stow to keep things cool. Perhaps Kelly will post a pic. Still in the "test" phase. I'm jumping a Katana, and haven't yet used it on my Stiletto. (Actually no longer want to jump the Stiletto.) Openings are uneventful and I even forgot I had it set up that way. My d-bag also has the loops on the top flap for stowes. You can see mine at Chicks Rock.

    Gravity and Fury Matchup!

    Great competition! Perhaps an 8 way team for Nats? Howabout Perrisinore Gravfury? Congrats to all the teams that competed.

    Thanks! You do Kick-ass work! Now I'll have to get an embroidered Shark logo on the next one.
  8. Kelly, Clothing is, of course, optional. See ya, Shark

    Received Shark-rig 4 a couple of weeks ago. Gotta love the "newer" type of leg straps on the hip rings as well as the cut-in lats. Very comfortable.

    It won't compare. Kelly's cryptic message seems to reveal some alien technology. Guess I'll find out in a few days.

    When to do tunnel time

    I don't consider my 120 hours a waste because I haven't jumped in a year. It's all about what you are into. I don't think having fun at the tunnel and learning new skills would be a bad thing, even if you never get out of the plane. I've yet to meet a whuffo tourisits who considered their tunnel time moot because they don't jump. For many people, skydiving is not as exciting as tunnel flying. It's a sport of it's own and most skydivers are really humbled and/or pissed by their tunnel experiences because they realize that they sky is very forgiving and you don't have to create lift to fly. Easy there tunnel princess. This is about AFF. I've had a guy with 1/2 hour of tunnel refuse to get off the bench on a level 2. Nobody questioned his freefall skills. His fear was the exit. My apologies to Paige.

    Perris Fury?

    Oh, whatabout Perris Element? Wait! That was last season. Then there's the chick team Select from El Snore. Okay, I like 'em all.

    Which is what I was getting at. BTW, I hear your tunnel is sick. Lotsa ex-Perrisites there.

    Tunnel time will definitely help, but talk to the instructors you will be doing your AFF jumps with. Unfortunately, it's all moot if you do not get out of the plane, nor fly & land your canopy safely.

    Tipping Instructors??

    I've tipped my eye doctor before. I got her a gift card to a local resteraunt. As a stockbroker I never received a monetary tip, but it did come back in the form of repeat business and referals. As previously stated in last year's thread: "When is a waitress responsible for your life?" With that said, I've often tipped very well. (Especially at Hooters.)

    Elsinore Tandem Instructors

    Matt should be a "toe model" for the don't let this happen to you products. In this case, looks can kill.
  23. Spinner comes to mind..... But look at you now. Be safe Ed You still got that full face helmet?
