  1. A buddy of mine is looking for a video:

    "I remember seeing video of a single wingsuiter flying into a PC-6 first attempt. This would’ve been circa 1996ish. Does anyone recall who it was, and if there’s video still kicking around?"

    Not denying Fred his ability to earn a living in that valley should be priority #1.

    I'll always remember the way you treated EVERYONE with dignity and RESPECT every day in every way

    My four favorite memories will always be:

    1. On jump 2 of AFF you were our video and I distinctly remember you placing your hands under your chin like you were going to take a nap and giving me a HUGE grin as I was flailing around the sky being held stable by James S

    2. 1.5 years 350 400jumps later later doing one of my my first open field demos with you Alana and Jules I'm stressing in a monster way and and you look at me with that huge smile and say “John its just a sky dive don't over think it”

    3. At the Davis boogie when I was making some of my first attempts at organizing you offered tons of encouragement.

    4. This Sunday morning 9/14/09 I walked up to you to offer congratulations on your recent marriage and your smile echoed your comment to the affect of being the happiest you could ever remember

    They say the imitation is the sincerest form of flattery I hope to be like you, with an easy way around everyone with the ability to make a person feel like more, the ability to inspire us to want to be more, better, nicer. I hope that I will have the dignity and patience to always take time to spend with the newbies and help them like you helped me.
    You are gone and thats the reality we have to live with, but, as with any great individual you left your mark on us all and you WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN we are better for having known you and poorer for your passing

    Blue Skies my friend no one deserves Heaven more than you

    With love respect and admiration

  13. On a flight getting ready to depart for Detroit...

    Jack was sitting on the plane when a guy took the
    seat beside him. The guy was an emotional wreck,
    he was pale and his hands were shaking.
    "What's the matter?" Jack asked.

    "I've been transferred to Detroit, there's crazy people there. They've got
    lots of shootings, gangs, race riots, drugs, poor public schools, and the
    highest crime rate."

    Jack replied, "I've lived in Detroit all my life. It's not
    as bad as the media says. Find a nice home, go to
    work, mind your own business, enroll your kids in
    a nice private school. It's as safe a place as
    anywhere in the world."

    The guy relaxed and stopped shaking and said, "Oh,
    thank you. I've been worried to death. But if you live there and say it's
    OK, I'll take your word for it. What do you do for a living?"

    "Me?" said Jack. "I'm a tail gunner on a Budweiser truck."

  14. GRATS SPOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I watched Jay at Lodi last summer and was very impressed with his style, and if I go there, it'll likely be with him. I decided I might pursue a Pro rating this coming summer with tutelage from Pete while I work to improve my RW and Wingsuit flying skills with an eye towards AFFI when I feel like I have more range/skill in the air.

    Looking forward to seeing you again soon

  15. Nope!!! had 1 IRS audit in 1985 and nothing is worth being treated as poorly as I was. I feel thats its worth paying a pro and my accountant usually gets me back way more than I could myself.

    Lets see stress, more money back yup I'll pay someone

  17. I was pretty impressed with ATC, the pilots had 3 runways to choose from in seconds Teterboro made a hole instantly pilot was informed about Newark too
    It did sound like the departure took it pretty hard after they lost contact. Hope that controller was OK afterwards too.
