  1. are they open in the winter? like now? I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
  2. i jump at chambersburg regularly now and, for me, the vibe isn't there. Don't know what Skydive PA is like so willing to check it out. I have heard stories that back in the day chambersburg was the shit. I dont know what happened........... great plane and all though I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
  3. Thinking about making that my home DZ from now on and wondering what people think of it for the the people who go there or have visited there. Thanks a lot.

  4. I ordered my custom V-3 with the works last March and got it around August. Fits beautifully. My wife and friend helped me measure in my house using UPT's guide and we did it like 5 times to make sure we got the same numbers every time. Just with that delivery time make sure you dont gain or lose too much weight in between or it might be a little too tight/loose. I did the same for my freefly suit too and it fits great. Good luck I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
  5. i would fucking kill somebody!!!!! I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
  6. i looked and looked and looked for a used rig but it was no use. I wasn't gonna keep paying $50/jump. I am 6' 178 lbs so I ordered a custom V-3 with the works. Love it. Nothing beats spacer foam and a custom fit. I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State.

  7. that is exactly what I meant. Thanks for clarifying it for me man. I have friends who are getting it for the "what if" reasons but after talking to you and Mike I'll keep what I have. But like you said who the hell is gonna fire their main below 1K. Thanks dude. I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State.

  8. it does apply to micron/v-3 m series. I called UPT and they said it's not needed on the sport rigs. If we truly want it then we can get the mod but our reserves are light enough and the bottom corners of the reserve container are pocketed, further making a left side cable release unlikely. Like I said, if you really, really want it then get it but the dude on the phone at UPT said he's not even putting it on his sport rigs. And besides if we're deploying our main at expert cypres fire altitude then we have bigger problems on our hands. I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
  9. Make an appointment with an ENT Dr. and see what he/she can do for you. I dont have the problem so I have no quick solutions. Good luck!!!

  10. And I do appreciate you're, I guess you can call it, "rank" in our sport. You're very right. I am just trying to get across that there is more than one right way. And BTW the idea of a PM is so that it's private. I dont appreciate you posting it on the thread. Otherwise I would have wrote all that on the thread. This isn't school and i am not being graded. It was to you so I can explain myself. I have to go to the doctor now for some weird rash on my side. Have a good one man and maybe we'll jump together one day!!!

  11. i love reading incident reports. It teaches you. They're not negative. Now maybe the person handled the emergency negatively and impacted his ability to act in the right manner. Who knows. But, though sad in many cases, it teaches us. The key is to not dwell on it. Now I have not had any major emergencies in skydiving yet. But I am a Padi Rescue Scuba Diver with many specialties including cavern diving. I have had a few emergencies while doing "shallow" 150' caverns in Florida that if I did not act quickly, but most importantly with a clear minded, positive attitude I would be dead right now.

  12. my positive attitude helps me stay safe. As well as a deep respect for the sport and fellow jumpers and an endless hunger for learning. And who is comparing who has gone farther. You are. He has definitely gone farther than me and is most likely an excellent skydiver.. Maybe I will and maybe I wont go farther than him. it's not a race. It's jump after jump, lesson after lesson. If it wasn't for two deployments I would have over 500 jumps and this cold weather doesnt help. It's not a race. This sport needs a change for the better and take it away from people who concentrate on the things that can go wrong and focus positively on the things that WILL go right. And you guys do know a lot. Hell, you're instructors. But you guys seem to always shit out the little guys when they have every right a voice as you. Your way is not the only right way. You're way may work for you but not for everybody. And BTW my canopy IS NOT fast. It is perfect for where I want to be. Like I said concentrate on a negative and it will be. Free your mind. I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
  13. have fun taking life so seriously dude. You'll go far!! I really hope you're not one of those boring AFF-I's. I am guessing yes. You seem to have a negative outlook man. When you concentrate on things that can go wrong and think about them then metaphysics take over and usually they go wrong. Let go, relax and have fun and most of all stay positive and everything, every time will always work out for the best. Thinking about shit that can go wrong leads to fear, which leads to worrying which leads to possibly fatal mistakes. I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
  14. which part? the dont plan on downsizing again for 500 more jumps? But, seriously. I feel more comfortable flying my Pilot 150 than any other canopy that I have ever demoed and used. I am very conservative under it and wont try anything more advance until I advance a little more. I have had nothing but great comments on how I fly my baby. Plus jumping in Hawaii you learn canopy skills a lot faster than freefall skills due to the psychotic winds and weather conditions. I am not and will never get complacent with a sport as attention to detail demanding as skydiving. I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State.
