  1. K.I.S.S. Simple is always better. Especially in a ballad. Just my .02 Jeff Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    why Zeemax?

    You would think so but, no. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  3. The dz in playa del carmen will drop you over the town and you land on the beach right in front of carlos&charlies. To my knowledge there is no beer line. Have fun!!!! Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    Mine is not because i'm full of smarts. I have a brain airbrushed on top of my full face helmet so that it looks as if my helmet has come open and you can see the brain inside. May sound stupid, but, everytime i put it on and i see the brain, it reminds me to use it and think about what i am doing. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  5. In addition to $99 day passes even with multiple rigs, Fridays are $14 to 13.5K. Otter is gone but the king air isn't so bad and the T-bo shoulb be up and running by late spring. I hear they will be running both planes at the same time for faster turnarounds. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  6. I never have. Are you still thinking of going to moss pt?? Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  7. Ditto quade. Some of the students at our dz are taught a long slow flare as opposed to a "two stage" flare. Think of it more as flying your canopy all the way to the end, even as you are flaring. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  8. What Dave said seems to be echoe'd among staff packers that i have met/used. There is a packer at our dz who literally runs out to the landing area if there is a cutaway to see if the person is ok and is genuinely concerned if someone has a bad opening. I have seen her cry after packing someone a mal. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  9. As the packers at my our dz say, "It's $5 for the pack job, openings are extra" Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  10. I bought my first main (used) through square1 so i felt pretty comfortable doing it. They sent it cod and i got it in like 5 days. I would consider buying through them again but i am leary of buying through individuals, you just never know. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  11. Learning to two-step while drunk is the best way. Afterall, aren't you drunk or close to it when you start dancing anyway?? Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  12. Don't need to see you. I know who you are but i didn't know that you were back in the air yet. Look forward to doing some more rw with ya. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  13. I thought the brain thing would be funny to students (tandems) that were sitting behind me on the plane. Gives them something to smile at and helps to relax, imo. It also gives swoopers something to positively identify me in formations, cause i regularly change rigs and jumpsuits. Oh, and thanks for the advice on the sig line, i think i got that fixed Jeff Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  14. thank you Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  15. Hello everyone. I have been lurking the forums for some time and recently got road runner at work so now i can be online all day. I enjoy reading the threads for both information and entertainment. My user name is not meant to be self describing, my helmet has a brain airbrushed on the top of it. Just thought i would clarify that. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  16. I have about 150 jumps on cobalts. I know that is relatively little experience but after demo'ing one i ordered a brand new 135. My dzo was kind enough to let me jump his 135 untill mine came in. I have had a few strange openings but, like stated before, i knew it was going to be bad as soon as i threw out. There are approx 8-10 cobalts at my home dz and everyone loves them. I am planning on buying another one for my second rig. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  17. I know this is an older thread but, Dave, my brother is a tattoo artist in San Antonio and he does some really sweet tribal stuff. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  18. Dave, are there really people who don't know hou to two-step???????? Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  19. I dated an aggie who always talked about freebirds. I guess i definately have to go jump and try the burritos there. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  20. Ok Dave, that's it. I have been lurking in the forums for awhile and have read several of your posts and replies. I got to get to CS and jump with you over there. Anyone who can quote CCR on their sig line AND skydives, that's just too cool. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  21. Congrats on getting your ring, I DO know what a big deal it is. And just think, next year on this holiday you could be jumping like i am going to do in about one hour. Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.

    Farmer McNasty

    We used to have a Farmer McNasty. One day the DZO was riding up and down the fencline that divides the dz and McNasty's land FIXING the fence here and there. McNasty asked him what he was doing and he said, "From time to time skydivers land on your land and they have to climb over. I just wanted to make sure that there weren't any holes for your cattle to get out." From then on, no more problems with Farmer McNasty. If we have a cutaway and loose a freebag or something, the DZ will actually call him and let him know we will be out there looking for it. No more problems, just a little give and take.

  23. We ought to let Oklahoma have Dallas! Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  24. i don't know Lisa personally but, she did sell me my very first container. I am happy to help the "cause" Never look down on someone, unless they are going down on you.
  25. I am not, nor have i ever been married. I had a girlfriend when i started skydiving.( we both did tandems on the same day) I was hooked and she had absolutely no desire to ever do it again. Over time she grew to hate the dz because i spent so much time there that i could (read that SHOULD) be spending with her. After about a year and a half i took the advice of my ever wise DZO and i cut away! Ditto on whoever quoted "Heat" never keep anything in your life that you can't walk away from in 30 seconds or less. I still live by that.
