  1. Blue Skies Dan, you were a mentor I sincerely looked up to. I didn't know you as well as many others did, but I know you were a true warrior. Your advice both saved my life and helped me deal with some past demons and limiting beliefs. _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:
  2. I said screw it and wore my wingsuit with rig to two major Halloween parties. Big risk, but nothing bad happened. Everyone loved it and I probably brought spaceland or waller more tandem business. Best part was discovering dancing to drum n bass, house and dubstep, even with the leg and arm wings zipped on, was pretty easy. Lugging an extra 20lbs was a pain, but it worked. Wore it into Denny's on the way home from the second event where cops were having breakfast. One of them asked if I was about to go BASE jumping While I'm not a BASE jumper...I would imagine they wouldn't say "Gee yeah...I'm gonna jump that tall building over there." Fun weekend despite no jumps, good times. _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:
  3. I haven't been to Colorado in 20 years, so I know next to nothing of what cities and towns surround it. The dropzone locator didn't help much besides tell me 8 dropzones exist in the state. So...if anyone can help me out, if you live in or near Denver where do you jump, why, and how far from the skyventure is it? (my sis lives a block or 2 from the tunnel, lucky bitch lol) Thanks. _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:
  4. I lost my mom to liver cancer 5 years ago. She was given 3 months to live but made it 2 and a half years. Seeing her slowly lose the battle has had a permanent effect on me. A week ago a close friend found out she had liver cancer as well, before I had the chance to talk to her and offer support she killed herself the same night she found out. Due to attending previous wakes of friends who committed suicide and seeing how such affects the family, I chose not to attend the memorial. I am still battling internal demons on whether I made the right decision. I'm not looking for sympathy, nor gratitude when I am committing to donate 10% of every paycheck for the rest of my life to a reputable foundation for the research and hopeful eradication of cancer. The donations won't be very much...but it will help bring me some sense of peace. Hopefully. _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:
  5. The kind of stuff I spun the last 10 years. Not hardcore...but never failed to get the room jumpin. "gosh, what a ride life can be at times.." Yeah I've said that more than a few times... _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:
  6. For a week (or more) I've had acute tendinitis in the tendons between the upper bicep and shoulder muscles in my left arm. (If anyone saw the guy wearing a sling at the Rose benefit cracked out on painkillers...that was me ) I do not know specifically how I hurt it. On my jumps where I wasn't wearing a wingsuit, I was practicing turning my sitfly into a stand. Improper arm position with the faster relative winds may have caused it. I also work out extensively, work construction, swim, practice, krav maga (self-defense). SO it may of been one or a combination. All I know is now I cannot do ANY of them. I was diagnosed last weekend and I've kept it on ice, let it rest, and take my anti-inflammatories. My question is: How will I know when I am really ready to return to the sport? What I dont want to do is get lulled into thinking its safe to do so simply because my shoulder no longer hurts. The physician's assistant at the VA didn't tell me much of anything as far as recovery times or rehab. Anyone go through this or know someone who has? I just want to be safe as I've always tried to be in this sport. Any help is appreciated. Thanks! _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:
  7. Everyone else said mostly what I was going to say, so I'll touch on a few points. I bought the KSOs to train up for marathons, as I was told they will force you to run correctly to minimize discomfort. They also work out muscles that regular shoes kept us from using. -- I can say that this was true and ran my first 27 miles the weekend before last, whereas I couldnt get above 15 with my asics. On top of that, all of my shin and knee pain is gone. Take it easy when first wearing them and watch your step. The roots and rocks we didn't notice with our shoes on will now make their presence known if you step on them! lol As far as skydiving, I love them for freeflying. I cant use them with my wingsuit or any jumpsuit that has booties tho. You have to be on top of your landings and ready to PLF if you think yours isn't going to be a feather soft stand up. I have a pair of the Bikilas on order as I heard they were better for distance running on pavement/asphalt surfaces. _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:
  8. Wasn't able to jump after injuring my shoulder on a friday jump, but decided to stay the whole weekend to see how everything turned out. I lost my mom to cancer so I volunteered to help out however I could, but with my left arm in a sling and half conscious from the pain-killers, I wasn't much good to anyone. But just being there and being a part of the excitement as the record was topped 5 times was well worth it. Congrats to all the jumpers involved in the record.
  9. Less than once hopefully! Heh, you got me. Honestly between the scotch at the airport and the vodka vials on the aircraft, my face was glued to the window most of the flight. I checked it saw it at 3K and assumed it went around a few times. *shrugs* The return flights it was in my checked baggage. I didn't think about the pressurized cabin as I haven't flown commercial but that once since getting licensed. _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:
  10. Yeah same here. The room we got at some roach motel down in Galveston had the beds stacked on top of each other like they were in the process of cleaning it. I wanted to bring the manager in and go "WTF is wrong with this picture" and get another room or haggle a discount, preferably one facing the beach but my friends said screw it and put em back normal. :/ I slept in worse spots overseas tho. Luckily for free. Hard to sleep the first few nights after the briefing on spiders n shit. _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:

  12. First commercial flights (and last) was about a year after my first jump when I was booked to spin in Colombia. Luckily someone else paid for the flight. I remember looking at islands flying from Miami at a few grand wondering if I could make it to em on a HAHO if I had the right gear. Im guess that answer woulda been no. Also brought my altimeter with me just to see how fast the climb to altitude would be. Thanks to all the scotch I drank before the flight I forgot to check after takeoff, but was neat seeing how many times the needle went around. Heh, stick in this sport a while and you'll find yourself doing shit you said you wouldn't do again. With the exception of safety violations hopefully... good luck. _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:

  15. There aren't too many videos that I can say that have blown me away. Wow...I'm at a loss of words. Hope I get to visit that dropzone someday :) _________________________________________ trance/house mixes for download:
