  1. Happy 2016 to everyone! May it be a year filled with blue skies and soft landings!
  2. Quite an asshole thing to say... What specifically makes me not experienced enough? Low number of jumps, not having jumped for a while, or just some attitude from someone who has more jumps than I do? See, this is good and polite advice. Thank you, your highness.
  3. Personally for those two things I'd choose either Skydive California in Tracy (closer to San Jose) or Skydance in Davis (farther). Thanks!
  4. Was shocked to hear of this. I haven't been much to my home DZ in CT in a while, and haven't seen him in a long time. But he always very friendly with a kind word, a joke, a handshake, or a laugh if I screwed up a skydive and everyone else laughed at me, which was quite often. BSBD Ron.
  5. Good point ;) I need to get recurrent and do several fun jumps. That's...about it!
  6. Thanks a lot...very helpful. I'm looking for actual input from people that skydive at the DZs, not a just a listing.
  7. So...I'll be in San Jose from Dec28 to Jan3rd, and looking to get a skydive in...well, looking to first get recurrent, THEN an actual skydive or two. What's the closest DZ to San Jose?
  8. I didn't WIN the contest. Not even close. But it was a stiff challenge anyways. ;) The road glide sounds awesome!!
  9. So, how YOU doin'? How are things? How's life? Any complaints, issues, or anything good and positive to share?
  10. It really IS sex related!! I know that skydivers don't really LIKE to use condoms....but still... I recently saw a contest for custom condom design, and of course I created an ambigram of the phrase "I Love Sex". An ambigram is a word that can be read in one direction, and then when rotated 180 degrees, can be read as the same (or a different) phrase. But, this phrase says 'I Love Sex' in both directions. So, I need some votes please! Only a few days left...and I was just able to finish the design today. Need the power of my fellow skydivers to get several thousand votes in the next week or so. Can it be done?? Thanks in advance everyone!!!
  11. Well, maybe you should go to a rigger instead Doh. I'm an idiot. I meant 'rigger'
  12. Currently I'm flying a Triathlon 210, with a Raven II 218 reserve. Vector 2 container. Both the container and reserve are over 20 years old, and several packers already told me the wouldn't feel comfortable repacking the reserve and calling it 100% air-worthy. Which brings me to my next question. I got a Rigging Innovations Talon container from a fellow skydiver, which fits a 190main/176 reserve. Any suggestions on canopies? I have 15-20 jumps on Sabre2 190, so that won't be a huge downsize from the Tri210. Any suggestions on a reserve to go along with a Saber2 190? Any other 190 canopy recommendations would be welcomed as well.
  13. I'd prefer durable AND good. Thanks Tigra!! Much appreciated. I'll take a look a those.
  14. I'm looking for a good durable pair of earbud headphones. The Apple-type ones I go through very quickly. I use them for traveling, gym, etc...and they break down way too quickly for my liking. Any recommendations on good DURABLE earbud headphone? Thanks y'all!!
  15. Why not? Would give someone a chance to perfect their proximity flying and tree avoidance techniques.
  16. Bueller? Bueller? If there are no DZs there, who's up for starting a DZ with me?
  17. My favorite group of all time...feel horrible for Malcolm. I hope that he recovers, regardless of whether AC/DC still continues or not. And...damn it. I never got a chance to see them live.
  18. Thanks a lot for the tips. Much appreciated!! Looking at Aruba too....torn between the two. And I have friends that live in Trinidad and Tobago...looking at that as well. Damn it!!!
  19. Thinking of going there for two weeks around late June/early July to get my license and then just stay and dive for the rest of the time. Any suggestions/hints from anyone who has gone scuba diving there? Would be much appreciated!
  20. Yes I have, but it's either a scam or debt collectors. Sometimes they're one and the same.
  21. What the f....? That's an episode of Law & Order: SVU just waiting to be filmed!!!! And seriously...what is wrong with some people??
  22. If I told you it wouldn't be a secret WOULD IT? SHEESH!!!
