  3. Maybe next with two Otters and 10 skydivers in each from 15,000. I'll float.....
  4. I didn't know Bruce but really appreciated your tribute and pictures. Sounds like a good friend and wonderful person. My condolences...
  5. I just noticed the above and cannot delete... :-( https://www.fox13news.com/news/johns-hopkins-study-shows-lockdowns-only-reduced-covid-19-death-rate-by-2 BTW John, 2% is a large number but 7,500 people die everyday in the US for lots of causes and this is not necessarily in addition to...
  6. I'm not a doctor.... The same happened to me in the late 80's while SCUBA diving and it was a one time thing as it's never happened again. I had no pain, but after a normal 70 foot dive, come to the surface with what felt like cotton in one ear and sounds were muffled. It was later diagnosed (ENT) as the same as yours, a barotrama and after a while, the stuffed/cotton feel went away. I still do a lot of diving and it never happened again. I was left though with tinnitus in that ear. In your situation, you might consider a decongestant, after seeing an ENT and not jump with a head cold or if you are stuffy and congested.
  7. I had two Spectra and got slammed by one out of maybe 1,000 jumps. I'm pretty sure it was the packer because at the boogie, several others had the same happen to them. My present Pilot 132 has 600+ jumps and all great openings. I just ordered another Pilot but 168 for a bit more canopy above my head.
  8. Or as others have said, don't be a rigger in the sky. Go with the odds and chances are it will be a non event.
  9. Earplugs unless you want tinnitus.....spoken from a sufferer...
  10. An old thread and it was alluded to, but I'd also want to know where it was jumped. Out in the desert with all of the sand and dust, or East coast with grass...Sand from a few dirt baths will probably shorten the life of gear by half.
  11. Maybe wear bicycle shorts under your jumpsuit.
  12. Landmissle, watch someone flat pack and you will be surprised how much sense it makes to see everything laid out as you fly it. It just takes more room....
  13. Do most students learn to Flat Pack first or do they generally go to PRO first. I learned to Flat Pack first and still prefer to see it laid out for a quick inspection.
  14. I've sold several rigs and had them all inspected by ChutingStar. They gave me a 2-3 page detailed inspection report and handled the money transfer. I was very satisfied..Check with the used prices on this forum and you will get close to the value of your gear.
  15. Old school here...An audible with 3 preset altitudes (break off, canopy out and flat-line) and analog altimeter on my mud flap. Mudflap is always there, easy for me and other to see and out of the way. Little to remember...
