  3. Hello people, well its been a while since I have posted anything. Just to busy enjoying life as I assume you have been doing also. Well, just to catch you up some I'm the other wheelchair jumper here in Florida. I have been really busy at work, which for a while had been taken up my time. But as any jumper that didn't mean I couldn't or would not jump, just had to spread out my time some like anyone else. Any whooooooo, slowly but surely I have been continuing my dreams. I hope to visit your dropzone sometime in the future, I can never learn enough. ...Blue Skys my friends...video from today... sorry again no landing pic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3b-mpnVQSE Stop Touching Me!!!

  8. Hello People...Have you seen this Guy? His name is Bill and he’s my friend. He’s a jumper who may be in the New York area. He’s also a handy man, so you could find him around doing odd jobs. He used to come to Florida to jump while doing odd jobs around the DZ. If anyone knows him please let him know I am trying to reach him and if possible get a contact for him. Thanks to anyone that can help.. and yes Bill is all I got sorry no last name. Stop Touching Me!!! Muff Brother# 4466
  9. I got married about a year ago and one thing that I let my wife know is that my hobby is something I refuse to do without. So I budget out every two weeks for skydiving. Why work if you can’t enjoy the spoils? So in other words, “ I work hard so I can play hard “ and that’s all there is to it. Yea, I could be using the money I spend on something else. But all in all this is my choice and this is what I choose to do with the money I work so hard for. Stop Touching Me!!! Muff Brother# 4466

  13. Oh God ( PiLFy ) you make out what works for me to be so much Drama in your words. There is No broken wrists or ankles or anything like that. There is no deadly impact or anything close to that. For the few of us wheelchaIr jumpers we had to find our own way to do things, and what may work for me may not work for someone else in my position, and visa versa. And as far as my landings I wear a nice pair of catchers knee pads. They help me slide across the ground as if sliding across the kitchen floor as I did as a kid. And some times when the wind is just right I do get a stand up landing which last for maybe less then a sec and for the people at my DZ that get a chance to see that happen it brings a smile to their face. Here are some stil pic's of my landing. My job is to have fun, don't break anything and don't die. My Instructor & My Wife would kill me if I did and thats all the drama I don't want. It's really not that bad man.. Stop Touching Me!!! Muff Brother# 4466
  14. HaHa ( Buckweat ) LMFAO!!!!I sure will punch him in the Nuttz. He's been really busy here latly. When are you ganna be out here? Its got to be really fucking cold up there by now . Im having a lot of fun being able to jump solo now. Been learning more on each jump. I think doing CRW again would be kool . I have been hering stories about the cut away there not bad but it seemed to have woke up the people who were talking about it. I'm ready when ever TK says I am but by NO means am I look foward to it. But I'll be ready , Give me heads up befor you come out. It will be good to see you again... Stop Touching Me!!!

  15. Hey There, just checked out your video. Pritty Sweet Man. 2 questions I have one is of your landing, it looked to be a parking lot. If so, was that spot a part of your game plain landing area befor going up? I know things can change during descent. I never based jump yet so I am corious. I used to wear a pair of hockey pants under my jump suit. I have since moved down to a pair of motorcross shorts. It has just the right padding. And it covers that tail bone just right. I also wear a pair of baseball catchers knee pads. I will try to find a video, if I have one of my landing. I come in slinding on my knees. Since I have a nice size chute ( Stellar 240 ) I find I can handle that really well when it comes to my flair. And the knee pads have help me more then once and I refuse to jump without them. I got a couple jumps in yesterday, been missing the air up there for a few weeks. So that was nice. Hope you had a good weekend man, keep doin what you do, cause I am... LATER!!!! Stop Touching Me!!!

  16. Hi there, Are you also a rider ( wheelchair )? Stop Touching Me!!! Muff Brother# 4466
  17. Hey, Is that you Angus? Who's Lonnie? Man things are going great on my end, flying solo is the best feeling ever. TK has taught me well. And yes I would surly like to do another down-plane again. I had a lot of fun on that jump. After we got down I didn’t realize I was supposed to be scared or something, that’s what some others had said. I was having too much fun to even think about something going bad. I think we did a good job in staying safe, you had some good directions for me to stay calm and to enjoy myself. TK told there’s gonna be a time when I’m ganna have to do a controlled cut away. I think I may get a lil nervous as anyone would, but I am looking forward to it. Stop Touching Me!!! Muff Brother# 4466
  18. Hey there, This is Pookie and I can understand the worry from whuffo's who just don't understand. As far as a Doc. let me say this, it seems as if your DZ may not want the liability on their shoulders when it comes to gimps wanting to skydive. A doc cannot order you not to skydive, they may say it’s not in your best interest to do so. I have been working with my DZO who is also my instructor for over 6 yrs now, and after all these years I have finally became a solo jumper. Is your DZ asking him to get a doctors waiver in order for him to do a tandem jump? Now if you just want to go out to do a tandem jump, there is nothing special you have to do. The harness will still fit, and as I read your friend is cut off at the knee so he would still be able to put his stump thru the leg strap, so that shouldn’t be a problem from my point of view. It would just depend on the DZ and the instructor that would be going up with him/her, and in my opinion that is where the problem would be. There have been a few people that are in wheelchairs that have come thru my DZ to do tandem jumps and were turned away for whatever reason, I don’t really know. So there is no guaranty that it will ever happen for him/her. So to conclude, a Doc cannot order you to not jump. He can only recommend you do something else. But with that said your DZ does have the right to refuse you because they also feel it’s not safe. Stop Touching Me!!! Muff Brother# 4466
  19. Its kool man, I think we all go by something. I don't really go by gimp I've just heard it some many times when refered to another wheelchair jumper. My DZ is very laid back and no one really see's my chair as an obstical which is kool. I'm known as the Black Guy...LoL so it's all good
  20. Thanks... Minna Thanks... WMW and a Big Thanks to Everyone who is following.. Stop Touching Me!!! Muff Brother# 4466
  21. Lonnie, do we know each other? Are you also in a wheelchair? Just a note, WE don't refer our selves as cripples. It just do'snt sound right, I think Gimp works best for us chair divers. I guess you can say We inherited this name. Also sorry I don't have any film of my landings. I just happen to have this video because of friends that wanted to film me plus I personally needed some close up video so I can see what I can do and what I need to work on as any diver would do. But I will keep it in mind and I am sure that someone will get a good video on my landings, and at that time I will surley post and keep you up to date. And don't take the whole cripple thing personal because I really did'nt just thought I would fill ya in on that, thats alll... Stop Touching Me!!! Muff Brother# 4466
