  1. Jack and Jill went up the hill With 50 cents apiece Jill came down with a dollar And Jack was glad he brought her. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  2. I read that in the news this morn. I am very sorry for your loss. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  3. I'd have to pick my wife. She gives me all the action I want. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  4. So what did you do? Did you take the advice of the veteran jumpers or did you go ahead and buy and jump the Heatwave? I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  5. Because they love bags. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  6. WooHoo. 5 above here this Morn. I watched the forcast last night and found out it's in the 20's and 30's all around us. But we are in a valley with an inversion going on. If I drive 20 miles in any direction I'd have to put on my shorts. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  7. These beetles are a major disaster up here. About 15 miles away Mc Donald Pass area is almost 98 percent beetle kill. The whole damn area is red. I've never seen anything like it in my life. They say that we need 2 solid weeks of 30 below or 3 solid weeks of 20 below to eradicate the little bastards. We havn't even come close to that for several years. One major fire season could wipe out our forests easily. Bring on the cold thank you. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  8. It's only been about 3 or 4 weeks. It was supposed to warm up today but it was -13 this morn and the high today is only supposed to be around 0 somewhere. We need this shit in abundance tho to kill these damn bark beetles. You should see our forests. It's a damn shame. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  9. A balmy 17 below at my house this morning. Montana. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  10. A few yrs back I ran to the plane basically putting my rig on as I ran. I alway check all straps and buckles several times on the way to altitude as I also did on this jump. The difference being that I was getting out at around 4500. At about 3500 I look down and see my chest strap completely free. What an eye opener. From then on I have never been in a big rush to get on the plane. Even with other people telling me hurry up. If I miss that load I'll be on the next one. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  11. I took my dad for his first jump at age 69. He was a bit nervous but not bad. The funniest part of his hand cam video is when he told the TI that his ears were plugged. The TI told him to hold his nose and blow. So there is dad on the video holding his nose closed and blowing out his mouth. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  12. I read your reply and almost spit my drink on the screen. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  13. Fromm time to time at the DZ if there is a grasshopper or any other large type bug there with me when I'm packing I will slip him in my container. I get a kick out of thinking of them in freefall from 3k. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  14. Sam Elliot I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  15. My first three jumps were tandem. Not scared at all. I put my full trust in my tandem master, AFF on the other hand........ Put it this way. You couldn't have pounded a needle in my butt with a sledge hammer. I had never been so scared in my life. After AFF that went away. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  16. Dave Barry can make anything funny. Even a camera up your butt. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  17. Thanks. Very sobering. I wish they were all home with their families. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  18. Gum poppers....Didn't your parents teach you to chew with your mouth closed? Gum chewers in general.....You look like a cow chewing a cud. People who don't use their turn signals.....How hard is it to let people know which way your inconsiderate ass is going on the road. People that pull onto the road right in front of you when there is not a car for 30 miles behind you only to go 100 yards then pull off the road again. Glad I got that out of my system. I feel better now.
  19. I jump a Tri 190, mfg 1997. How do I know if it's the older South African ZP or not? What years would that include? I Bought it used and have around 170 jumps on it. I have never had trouble packing it other than a little sqeezing it into the bag. Just curious for my own information. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  20. Wow. I didn't need to read that. Iwas eating my lunch, Reality is for those who cannot handle their drugs. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  21. I never had to suck a bar of soap. My mom used a little dish soap with her hand and literally washed my mouth out. She only had to do it once. That reminds me of the first and only time in my life that I ever heard my mom say fuck. She was on her hands and knees getting something out of a lower cupbord and stood up and cracked her head on the open upper cupboard door. It dropped her to her knees and out it came.I was about 15 at the time. After I picked my jaw up off my chest I asked her if I needed to get the dish soap. She got a chuckle out of that.

  22. >I hate waking up that way< When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather did. Not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  23. I don't need no stinking penis pump. I have a wife. I may be getting old but I got to see all the cool bands.
  24. I don't know what the laws are where you are, but here DUI is not just driving drunk. DUI is "Driving Under the Influence" of anything. To include over the counter cold meds that can make you drowsey. But I'm not sure how they can enforce all of that. But back to the point. Just because pot could be legal doesn' mean that you should be out there driving around bleeding out you eyes. I'll be the first to admit my reaction times are slower than they would be normally. That is why I would never drink or smoke before skydiving or driving or for that matter before anything that I have to do that is important or requires my full attention or concentration. For me the whole thing boils down to responsibility and moderation. I know there are people out there that claim they can do anything under the influence that they can do straight or sober with the same efficency. That's where I call bullshit. I've played both sides of the fence. But I guess that's just me. I know my limitations. Besides, I'm to stiff and sore most of the time to give up my car for a shiny new bicycle.

  25. I see your point. But I'm not saying that people wouldn't buy or sell, I'm saying that people wouldn't have to. But then comes in "Hey. Yours is better than mine. Wanna trade?" I do know that from PAST experience that anything I could build in my window kicked the shit out of anything I could buy. So there was never any reason for me to go out and perpetuate the trade.
