  2. Definitely looks like there is some AFF video in there. Wonder who's it is? There are three types of people in this world. Those who can count and those who can't.
  3. Toby: Didn't you lose a lot of money on that other investment? The email? Michael Scott: You know what Toby, when the son of the deposed king of Nigeria emails you directly, asking for help, you help! His father ran the freaking country! Ok?

  4. It's been amazing to read everyone's posts and I wish I could talk to everyone here! Riggerrob, I hope that this bully-jerkface-douchebag doesn't stop you from skydiving- skydiving is your life, please don't let a punk like that take it away from you! Does this guy work at the DZ or is he just a funjumper? I wish the DZO could be more pro-active in the situation. Angrypeppers, I wish you the best of luck in your upcoming surgery. If it's any consolation I'm scheduled for my 3rd surgery this coming Thursday, October 8th so you're not alone. Your situation sounds much more serious than mine, and I hope you heal quickly. I had dislocated my ankle so the foot was facing 180 degrees in the wrong direction and broke the fibula. I would have been walking by now but I picked up pretty serious infections at the hospital so they had to take out the hardware and cut out all of the skin- they said I was lucky I didn't lose my foot! At the time of the injury, no skin was broken and it was a simple dislocation and fibular fracture! I'm going into my 3rd surgery next week for free tissue transfer. They'll take muscle from my thigh or abdomen and the accompanying tissue to fill in the "hole" in my ankle and reconnect blood vessels, etc. Then hopefully my 4th surgery will be 1-2 months later to replace the hardware. The thing I've realized is that this broken ankle and hospital infection thing could have hadppened from twisting my ankle while walking down the street. I love skydiving, and I want to be a safe skydiver and I plan to get back in the air. Even though we know this sport can be very dangerous, it's still a total tragedy when we lose fellow skydivers. I'm wishing everyone with injuries a speedy recovery and those who are jumping blue skies and soft landings. There are three types of people in this world. Those who can count and those who can't.
  5. I really appreciate the comments and positive feedback. I just need to hear that I'm not alone in feeling this way and that it is possible to get over this hurdle. I live with whuffos so they don't really understand why I'm upset about it and how I might feel conflicted over jumping. I need to stay plugged in to the skydiving community right now, especially since I'm not able to get out there to jump. You guys are one of the many reasons I love this sport.

  6. I broke my fibula and dislocated my ankle approximately a month ago. I had a 9 month layoff prior to the accident, and I know what I did wrong on the jump so that is not the topic of my question... My question is, did any of you have a minor or major accident that shook your confidence or made you think twice about jumping again? What was your experience and how did you deal with it? I'm bumming out because I'm starting to think that maybe I shouldn't jump anymore. It's depressing me because I don't want to give up jumping but I'm scared for my bones and my life... what if I fuck up again??? I don't really want to give up one of the best things in my life... but I don't want to be paralyzed or dead either. I'm looking for helpful and constructive feedback.

  7. 9 jumps this weekend :) I just graduated AFF last week so I came out this past weekend to work on my A license. Jumped my own pack job, did my 1st hop n pop, a 6 way, a 9 way, and a tracking dive among other things. I have been having the time of my life... and I think I owe a lot of beer at the DZ!
