  1. Why not 100,000 cardboard boxes for landing, and give him a helmet with face shield? You could put that together for well under 2 million bucks. -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.

    What should i do

    I'm scared of heights. It hasn't been a problem for me though. My theory being I'm scared of heights when I can see how I'm going to hurt myself, ie on a roof top or climbing a ladder. Exit altitude is so high you lose that referance. Doing IAD that's not really the case. Everything below is pretty darn clear at 2500 ft. The guy who was to jump after me froze up on the wing and the instructor had to wrestle him back into the plane (C182). He got off the plane(carried) and went right into shock. He was OK after the ambulance came and checked him out. Could you just do a ride along and watch the exits? That's what I did. I think it was $15, and I go an idea of what to expect. If anything, it got me more excited to jump. -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.

    Plane dives with you

    That looked a little TOO close at a few points. I noticed they left the pilot off the credits.......... I have seen a vid with someone exiting from one aircraft and docking/landing with another in freefall. -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.
  6. All of the talk of safety stats relative to other activities goes right out the door with you on that first jump. It is very serious business, but it is a rush (at least for a while, I understand). Is it worth it? You need to jump and decide for yourself. -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.
  7. On a rollercoaster that does loops, corkscrews, and immelmans, are you the type to sit in the front seat and pretend you are flying a fighter jet, or do you sit in the middle and close your eyes? I am willing to be that having the eyes open fighter pilot type get sick much less often. Also, maybe ask your doctor about a motion sickness patch? And yes, talk to your instructors. They have seen this before, I bet. -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.

    Should be 17 to jump, not 18!

    You better hope a 20 year old icelandic dude doesn't do that. I hear they are WAY stronger than 13 year old German girls! -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.

    The SCUBA Paradigm

    In my navy days I took the course and passed everything expect the open water dive. My training was cut off when we had to leave in a hurry for Gulf War I. Given the opportunity to dive the Red Sea off Jeddah, Saudia Arabia, I just had to go ahead and say that I was licensed. Was it smart or the right thing - maybe not. But I got to do a once in a lifetime dive for my first dive, and everything went off without a hitch. I was sure to stay clear of the cone shells and nasty eels. After the war I left the navy and came home to PA, never to dive again...... -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.

    The death of Skydiving

    I'm guessing that there are lots of people who jump with a club DZ wondering what this is all about..... "Bring back the static line?" It never left did it? "A dropzone was just a field with a C182" Yes, and a trailer set off to the side..... right? -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.

    First AFF Jump Tonight

    My instructor told me to flare a bit early on my 4th jump as I was coming in to land, and a good PLF made the landing fun instead of painful. I'd much rather have a good PLF ready and not need it than need it and not have it. -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.
  13. Yes, I've nearly shit myself doing both. Two totally different ideas though - whatever you do, don't fall vs. whatever you do, you will surely fall. -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.

    Watch Out!!!!!

    Do Cooter and Roscoe P. Coltrain sleep under the bridge every day, just hoping for some action? These guys need some real work. Someone go down there and rob a bank or shoot someone for christ sake.... -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.

    SkyPunk's Tower is HOT!!

    That sounds like unlawful imprisonment to me. What a fucking dickhead. You should call the game commission and tell them you saw that guy shooting at a bald eagle. -------------------------- Chuck Norris doesn't do push-ups, he pushes the Earth down.
