    using an old reserve as a main

    A Techno Reserve is a Parachute de France canopy if memory serves me right!?!? If that is the case have a look at the max suspended weight on the Label, i believe it was very low comparing to other Reserves out there. i would highly recommend that you do NOT jump with with a high wing loading. I saw 2 people trying to land a Techno reserve with high wing loading's and both canopies collapsed as they flared and they had very rough landings 1 of those people i refused to pack the Techo for as he had a wing loading of 1.5 and i told him it was not safe for him to jump as he was way outside the recommended limits. he went off in a huff and got another rigger to pack it. after that landing he came to me and said sorry that he did not heed my advise and bought a different reserve of me.

    Can You Install a Skyhook Into any Rig? How?

    Hi Bkeleven, did you give the Serial number of the rig to the manufacturer? they should be able to tell you if it was build with the set up. since your rig is 2018 i would imagine it is, so happy days for you then it is a simple job to do for your rigger, just purchase the Freebag with Skyhook from PS or a dealer as stated. For me personally, i am a very big fan of the Skyhook and i think it is a good choice to add it and have it on your rig. But i do hope you never have to use it Blue Skies and Safe Landings Rodger

    Can You Install a Skyhook Into any Rig? How?

    It would depend on the rig, some might be easy retrofit, (if the rig was initially set up for that), but others would require a whole lot of major work and a complete headache. On some it would certainly affect the T.S.O of the container!! I would not do that type of work on a rig, without manufactures approval even though i am a Master Rigger. You could be opening a huge can of worms for yourself and legal action! best you contact the Manufacturer of the container and seek guidance from them and see if they allow it.

    JOKE OF THE DAY CLUB

    DEAR NEIGHBOUR: Hi, Max. This is Richard, next door. I've been riddled with guilt for a few months and have been trying to get up the courage to tell you face-to-face. When you're not around, I've been sharing your wife, day and night, probably much more than you. I haven't been getting it at home recently. I know that's no excuse. The temptation was just too great. I can't live with the guilt & hope you'll accept my sincere apology and forgive me. Please suggest a fee for usage and I'll pay you. Regards Richard Max feeling enraged and betrayed, grabbed his gun, went next door, and shoots Richard dead. He returned home, shoots his wife, poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa. Max then looked at his phone and discovered a second text message from Richard. SECOND TEXT MESSAGE: Hi, Max. Richard here again. Sorry about the typo on my last text. I assume you figured it out and noticed that the darned Spell-Checker had changed "wi-fi" to "wife." Technology, huh? It'll be the death of us all.

    Irish Paddy was telling his friend Mike about his first Skydive. When i got to the Door i completely froze and could not move. after a few seconds the 6'7 Black instructor unzipped his pants and took out his 14' dick and said "if you don't jump i am going to stick this thing up your arse!!!" So Mike asked Paddy did you jump?? Paddy replies, A little bit when it first went in!!!

    JOKE OF THE DAY CLUB

    A man escapes from a prison where he’s been locked up for 15 years He breaks into a house and inside, he finds a young couple in bed. He ties him to a chair. While tying the wife to the bed, the convict gets on top of her, kisses her neck, then gets up and goes into the bathroom. While he’s in there, the husband whispers over to his wife, “Listen, this guy is an escaped convict. Look at his clothes! He’s probably spent a lot of time in jail and hasn't seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck. If he wants sex, don’t resist, don’t complain. Do whatever he tells you. Satisfy him no matter how much he nauseates you. This guy is obviously very dangerous. If he gets angry, he’ll kill us both. Be strong, honey. I love you!” She responds: “He wasn't kissing my neck. He was whispering in my ear. He told me that he’s gay, thinks you’re cute, and asked if we had any Vaseline. I told him it was in the bathroom. Be strong honey. I love you, too.”

    I think you like this one Jerry, President Trump is visiting a Junior high School and a class was in the middle of discussing about words and their meanings. the Teacher asked President Trump if he would like to lead the discussion on the Word "tragedy"? So Trump asked the class if they could think of an example of a Tragedy. A little boy stood up and Said "If a man walks in front of a bus and is killed stone dead, that be a Tragedy! Incorrect Trump Replies, that would merely be a very bad accident! A little girl stood up and says "if a School bus carrying 30 Children drove over a cliff, killing everyone on board that be a Tragedy!" I am afraid not Says Trump, that be called a very great loss!! the room went Silent, Trump looking around if anyone else wanted to say something. Finally little Johnny raised his hand from the back of the class. If a plane carrying you and all the serving Republicans was hit with a missile and blow the airplane apart in the sky, killing everyone on Board, that be a Tragedy!! Fantastic says Trump, but can you tell me why it be a Tragedy?? Little Johnny replied, "Well, it has to be a Tragedy, because it would not be a great loss and it probably would not be a fucking accident either!!!

    Wife: do you want anything to eat? Husband:What are the Choices?? wife: Yes or fucking No!!
  12. From the Picture you have, it does not look so bad. the best option is to bring it to a rigger to be 100% certain and before you buy another AAD My guess is, to get your rigger to Strip everything out of the rig and then give it a good wash and clean, as per your riggers instruction or have him do it.

    1 or 2 Pin AAD on 2001 Infinity?

    Hi Andrew, I agree with Rigger Lee, if it is an Infinity container it will be a 1-pin. on you profile there is no jump numbers. how many jumps do you have? what is your exit weight? the reason for asking is because of the PD126 reserve size. are you sure that it is suitable for you considering it is quiet small??
