  1. I have a friend getting married in New Orleans in 3 weeks. Any one on here ordained to perform a ceremony? The cheapest they can find is one for $500 and are not having any luck with judges wanting to perform one on a Saturday. thanks! ~Always do stupid things safely~
  2. $40 registration. $25 jump tickets. with your registration it includes free beer after jumping is done (good beer), catered meal Friday night, BBQ meal Saturday night and a chance to party like you did in your college days :) ~Always do stupid things safely~
  3. looks like you have definatly overcome your obstacles, now if only overcoming bad spotting was as easy congrats! ~Always do stupid things safely~
  4. I think it would be very funny to lock this forum for 6 hours to see what GooniesKid ends up humping other than this forum *serious reply-work manifest, if you like it great, if not..quit and drink beer ~Always do stupid things safely~
  5. I had troubles with my legs spinning me as well. It helped me to just jump with the instructor and not do anything, i think we even played rock paper scissors once, point is to distract your self and let your memory control work. Try walking and think "left, right, left right," chance are you'll look stupid, uncoordinated. plus its just fun to fall and think "wow, this is really happening right now" good job on the cut away! ~Always do stupid things safely~
  6. "Along Came Polly"... this was the greatest post i've read in a while. thanks! ~Always do stupid things safely~
  7. "impossible" "like fort knox"- falls into the category of 'What not to say to a BASE jumper' ~Always do stupid things safely~
  8. THis is an april fools joke right? ~Always do stupid things safely~
  9. back in my student days i jumped a 260 w/l at 0.3 my wind limit was 7mph otherwise i would land backwards and i wouldnt need to flare. when instinc took over and i did flare, i'd float 4ft. I did enjoy the 10 minute canopy ride though :) ~Always do stupid things safely~
  10. thank you so much for your advice!! ~Always do stupid things safely~
  11. I primarily do FF but would do belly depending on others who want to jump. I would be traveling by train ( i think) . my sister who lives in Cholchester,Essex has seen parachutes about 1 mile North West of her house, most likly landing in a field outside of town. Do you know how i can get hooked up with that?!!? ~Always do stupid things safely~
  12. I'm visiting my sister in Colchester,essex in April and want to make a skydive there! Can anyone recommend a close DZ to there? ~Always do stupid things safely~
  13. I"m attending a camp in July. I never had any intention of teaching or commiting to memory any out dated skills, just wanted a fun read. thanks for all input
  14. If you want it bad enough you can make it happen. No motion in the neck> then jump solo, at a small DZ with little canopy traffic. Hard openings/ landing? upsize to a very large Sabre2( softest openings i've ever had) and great flare for landing. And of course i dont have to tell you the most important part of skydiving is the beer and S*** talking afterwards :) Heal fast! ~Always do stupid things safely~
  15. looks awesome! when is it expected out for sale? ~Always do stupid things safely~
  16. I only do crw a few times a year with one person that i trust and is very well versed and trusting enough to let me fly with him. this is why i like to read up on EP ect so i can ask well informed questions when its time to apply them. And for the record, if you are dedicated, you can do crw by yourself...just pull both handles ~Always do stupid things safely~
  17. I checked the links on the reading info underthis forum and half the links did not work for me sadly. And yep, I want it to teach my self crew, just like swooping all you do is grab that front riser and pull right? no, i'm just constantly bored at work and its better than reading a romance novel
  18. Does anyone know of a newer version of this book? And if you have this book do you recommend it? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0960781447/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller= ~Always do stupid things safely~
  19. A) thats a really great story :) B) I'm not sure where he is going to have the tandem yet, it will depend on who passes my interview to be the TI :) so i dotn know if it's required but i just wanted to be prepared. And as much as we all want him to make the jump, i dont want him to be more injured after the jump, so hoping a doctor could help in that area. I heard once that an immediate check up is suggested for paralysis due to bruising and blood clots that they may not feel and be aware of? ~Always do stupid things safely~
  20. left leg amputated at the knee and paralyzed at the waist down. he said his last doctor said no because neither one of them knew how that landing procedure would work. Since it is easier to email an article Vs. being at the doctors with him, i thought i'd put out a search. ~Always do stupid things safely~
  21. I am trying to arrange for a friend to do a tandem and he told me his doctors are un-informed of skydiving dangers. Does anyone know of any literature out there that documents safety concerns for people with disabilities? I am hoping that the more information his doctors have the more willing they will be. thanks! ~Always do stupid things safely~
  22. Does anyone know of a non-uspa dropzone that will have a 16 yr old Tandem student? second question if yes..do they still up hold all the safety standards? thanks for input ~Always do stupid things safely~

  24. The good folks at Skydive Kansas city will be hosting a fundraiser for Child abuse prevention during their memorial day boogie. My company is sponsoring a co-worker to take the plunge and we want to exceed our goal!! So if you have a few extra dollars it would be greatly appreciated to help out a great cause!!! Thanks! http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/xenometrics/takeanextremesteptostopchildabuse ~Always do stupid things safely~
  25. A chart is mearly suggestions of one persons experience in the sport. I"m 100lbs, so i'm not a fan of it, No offense to any 'chart' lovers With in reason, you need to find what is comfortable and safe for YOU, not whats considered safe by someone who doesn't know you. ~Always do stupid things safely~
