  1. I jumped a small helicopter with next to nothing airspeed from about 1000-1100 feet with a freepacked StratoFlyer; took a couple of seconds freefall to enjoy the proximity of the treetops and still had a decently long canopy ride. The problem with lower jumps requiring extreme accuracy is lack of canopy time to set up your landing.
  2. Anybody know where I could view Mike Sizemore's work or possibly get some reprints??
  3. Wish I hadn't clicked on this one, now I'll be wondering all the time.
  4. Agree; even bicycling Wolf Creek Pass it takes a good tuck to hit 60.
  5. I can't remember, and there were BASE and demos and parties and other unofficial locations, so I voted boobies.
  6. It took me just one jump to get hooked.
  7. No matter the maneuver, stability or lack of stability, time and space awareness are absolutely essential in skydiving. I guess you've figured that out.
  8. I had plans to do that once, with a buddy; we were going to strap two lawn chairs together. We instead discovered some formations nearby (towers) that could be climbed and offered a free fall opportunity and went that way instead. BASE took off and we never got back to our lawn chair jump. I know, just another lawn chair whuffo.
  9. If only we had a place where we could go to search for these things. Thanks Flyer... would it be to much to ask to get me a blue ray disc while your at it?
  10. Could that be considered a robot?
  11. Sad too, Houston is where BASE got off the ground (Earth)...
  12. Memories are the best possessions, and notice the BASCR card is sexist anyway...
  13. Way Cool. Late 1970ish we did an 11 way nekkid star at Spaceland from a small door twin beech; my only nekkid jump and the most awkward seating for the ride up I ever encountered.
  14. I usta live next to a small airfield that had a similar crash; two planes on final, one above, one below, not seeing each other. These two pancaked in a field next to my house so hard they were mostly two dimensional.
  15. I see what you did there. Can't we just let that one by as a figure of speech, like we do "manhole"
  16. Wow, only her fall rate gives her away...
  17. I would not hump Robover, just sayin'...
  18. My Grandmother worked in a shipyard at that time. A very liberated woman she was.
