  1. So, in 80 jumps, you managed to explore and master the entire flight envelope of the 150 you currently have? Remster
  2. I'll be there, herding RW cats! You all should come! Remster
  3. I have even less of a dog in the fight (well, maybe lol.. all I know is I know nothing about the details or the people involved), but ATC restrictions happen. I'd bet that on Long Island, it would not be uncommon. Remster
  4. That. Also: You're not a whuffo aymore. Don't say chute. Say canopy. Remster
  5. Yep... sunday Sunday SUNDAY! Remster
  6. Stop learning online and start hanging out at the DZ more. Remster
  7. I'm putting $5 that Ryoder is joining as we speak... Remster
  8. Closer to 20 so you have time to change into something more comfortable ;-) Remster
  9. You're the worst stalker ever..... Remster
  10. Why do you want to ostracize the kid that early???? Remster
  11. Does the $150 boogie fee include your side trip and the dinners in the restaurants? Remster
  12. Wow... Sad to see one of the old guard go... BSBD.... Remster
  13. I'll tell you what's offensive. Their food. Remster
  14. Don't put words in my mouth. (see what I did there ) Remster
  15. Scared she'll out-party you? Remster
  16. Yeah. I bet the neighbors hear it too Remster
  17. Maybe she even has once of those sex couches... Remster
  18. ZOMG! Maybe she even had sex!!!!!!! Remster
  19. Sure. Because simply approving a budget is proving to be so efficient, might as well add all legislation. Remster
  20. IMO, that's your market, right there (ans not so large ones once you get some traction with the big ones.). Good luck!
  21. Unfortunately it cannot be paid after a cut-away. If someone lets their subscription lapse, we disable the device's SIM card with our carrier. This is so we don't have to continue paying our carrier for a device that our customer isn't paying for. If someone has a cut-away with our device and their subscription isn't current, the cellular network will block the device from connecting or communicating. Once someone does renew their subscription we can re-activate the SIM card in our systems right away, but it takes 24-48 hours for our carrier to get it registered through their network again. It sounds to me like you're saying it actually can be paid after a cutaway, but it would be 1 or 2 days until it would be activated. So, a canopy would be out in the elements for that long. If you assume 10 min of exposure to the sun on a normal jump, it really isn't that many equivalent jumps worth of exposure (100 to 200 or so at the most). Is there something else that prevents a person from being willing to wait for the activation to occur before being able to track down the canopy? I would venture to say that the battery would be dead by then. Remster
  22. Exactly-if you read the OP's description of the jump, he was unstable, froze and did not deploy his parachute. That's not something you can sugar coat in a debrief. He's lucky to be alive and it sounds to me like these 2 instructors did everything to help this guy in the air AND on the ground afterwards. Now he's online complaining that they weren't nice or understanding enough. No one is doing him any favors by agreeing with him there. Yep. This aint bowling. Remster
