  1. The video was beautiful. I'm sorry for your loss. Sounds like you had a great friend. Always be kinder than you feel.
  2. You're welcome! I'm sure you'll get something worked out. Always be kinder than you feel.
  3. Are you on Facebook? If so, join these groups and float your ride dilemma there. I know there are CK jumpers living up your way. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2230832382/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/182263881790533/ One more thought.... if you can make it over to the Trenton Train Station you may be able to catch the River Line south down to one of the towns where you could try to hook up with a ride to the DZ there. Good luck.
  4. Blue skies, Arkady. One of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Always smiling, always nice, always funny and always a kind word. The night before he died he had me laughing my ass off when I was feeling down and I'm really grateful for that. There's a lot of people feeling the loss of such a nice man. Very, very sad. My sincere condolences to all of his family and friends. He will be greatly missed! Always be kinder than you feel.
  5. Blue Skies, Alan. He was such a nice person to just sit and talk with about anything under the sun. Always be kinder than you feel.
  6. Don't forget to tell the other jumpers on your load about your vision problem so they know you have trouble seeing them, especially under canopy. The whole had on a swivel thing gets new meaning when your vision isn't up to par. Always be kinder than you feel.
  7. Well that sucks! The ON comes and goes but those awful steroids don't always work so I no longer will take them. Also, I pretty much have chalked up I'll never skydive again between the ON and the horrible vertigo I get. Why are you driving with such vision loss? How is that safely possible? Please remember to take the risk to others into account when you decide if you're ever going to jump again if your vision doesn't come all the way back. Especially when it comes to the peripheral vision. Some may think they can see straight ahead and that's good enough. It's not. JMHO. I wish you a speedy return to full vision!!
  8. I just stumbled upon this post now.... How's your vision coming along? Do you know the cause of just the left eye's vision loss? I have optic neuritis in my left eye and the vision comes and goes sporadically and usually unexpectedly, sometimes leaving me in some sucky situations if I happen to be driving or if I'm somewhere and I need to get home. Hope to hear from you.
  9. Oh my! I'm so sorry to read this. He was always so chatty and nice. Blue Skies, Bryan. Always be kinder than you feel.
  10. I'm so sorry to read this terrible news. She was always so sweet and thoughtful on the forums. I admired her strength and compassion with the issues she faced between injuries and raising their son. I thought I'd meet her one day since we're kinda close geographically. Thoughts and prayers to her family and friends. Always be kinder than you feel.
  11. Hit up Cross Keys!! Always be kinder than you feel.
  12. Welcome! Cross Keys rocks! Have fun!! Always be kinder than you feel.
  13. Thanks very much to both of you! I appreciate your knowledge and advice!!
  14. Quick question... I have a PD 170, DOM 5/98 that came with my first rig I bought in October 2008. When I had it inspected the rigger commented "Main in great shape! No repairs needed." I think it had maybe 200 jumps on it and it has no rips/tears/patches, etc. I never jumped it once. I want to sell it but I don't know what to ask for it. Can anyone steer me in the right direction? Thanks!!
  15. Ahhh!! Thanks!! No, I was just calling and asking for availibility. I didn't mention the event!! I am on it now!! Thank you very much!! Always be kinder than you feel.
