    Hi mate I have 1300 jumps The feeling your experiencing is what we all experienced irregardless of gender or experience. It's what keeps us alive. Have you looked at the incident forum. Read that forum, it was written in blood. Don't do what they did. I hope you got lot's of money, jumping is a money pit, and you have to stay current. Be well, don't worry be happy, jump until you puke R

    Hi Sere Thanks for sharing the link.
  5. QuoteI'm helping with the Golden State Killer case in California. One piece of evidence is a unidentified car decal that has a parachute on it. They have been looking for its meaning since 1977! Does anyone recognize it? Here is the official website for the case and the image of the decal.

  8. Hi Remember when the gas stations used to have price wars. Or the big bully retailer would sell stuff at a loss to hurt his competition. R.

    Hi Steve Thanks for the update
  10. Hi steve You left out the part about the main ripcord retainer, so you wouldn't lose it during a cutaway. The pull out PC on the belly band was another idea that didn't work to good for some people. Then ther were the guy's with some of their suspension lines hangng out the bottom. The series arout living wild in alaska is a hoot lots of beaver hunting, and little critter snare traping. Saw some kids looking for a bear in sleeping in it's den. One kid crawled half way in with his rifle and his bud holding onto his legs. R.

  12. H Mr Spoon Sorry to hear and watch the "Good old boys" on another airport board trying to shut down another DZ. IMO the board is trying the same tactics that a lot of other boards have used in the past. Safety. Insurance premiums etc. The lack of space for the DZ at the at the airport was a new one for me, due to the hundreds of acres avalaible on the airport. The board is really grasping at straws with that one. I'm sure there wll be plenty of meetings, discussions etc but I think the FAA will finally rule n the DZ's favor.

  16. Hi Format Very interesting. When he was sstanding on top of the chair by the rail I was telling myself I hope there's water below. But then I've been to the Eiffel tower there's no water there. Well maybe there was in 1912, but the dude died in 1912 In a very sad way Franz did use a dummy for the jump. Format thanks for that page in history, 100 yr's ago today.

    Jump frequency

    hi 57 IMO Save your money until you can jump more often. But then I'm not employed in the jumping industry either.

    Hi Raptor There was something similar to what your describing organized in the PNW organized by ....... maybe Dave Rucker and some of his posse. The time frame was probably in the early to mid 90's, I think they made a boogie out of it. I think John & valinda Mitchel from KAS (E&W) can give you the specifics. FWIW the scenery in the PNW can't be beat, but we've got real man size tree's out here and if my memory serves me right (50% chance ) The LZ's were not at DZ's. So it was a challenging boogie. I was a local but knew my limits and stayed away. R.
