  1. When I was an activer jumper I felt like Maxtracking (post breakoff) was one of my stronger skills. I have afterburners on my jumpsuit and I feel like they really gave me alot more speed and possibly lift, of course I would keep my chin tucked for awhile then locate the other 3 jumpers I was with. Near my last jumps I was having some heading control issues which may have been caused by a lazy foot so I concentrated on pointing my toes more and findig a point on the horizon to focus on also. It always seemed that after opening that I was very far from the others both horizontally and somewhat vertically.

  2. Got a question for you Normiss: When Islamic fundamentalists carry out their dastardly deeds and the rest of the community does not speak out against it, doesn't that make them tacitly complicit or at least approving of those deeds?

  3. In 1997, I purchased my gear from J. Michael Brown via his advertisement in "Parachutist." Little did I know I would make a few jumps there at Gold Coast a couple of years later, having gone to Camp Shelby for some training. I got to meet J Michael and of course Mike Igo. I didn't know anyone there, but Mike, Travis and J Michael made me feel welcome. I would return in 2004-2005 being stationed at Keesler, AFB and would jump there often during this time frame. Mike was a true professional. He facilitated 2 Twin Otters many a time, one flying the CREW dogs or a local 8-way team and the other for the rest of the jumpers. This all went on without a hitch. He cared for all of the jumpers as you could see him watching all of the jumpers land, accounting for all of them. May God richly bless you Leanne and comfort all of you. Harry Robinson

  4. After committing to coach UT football, Lane Kiffin leaves to take a grander opportunity at USC, taking his father, Monty, a great defensive mind, with him. Now his team won't be participating in any Bowl games for 2 years. Now if only something could happen to the Notre Dame program. Ala Brian Kelly

  5. Recently I got to visit a brand new TA that sits right off of I-5 in Arvin. As I visited I couldn't help but stop and think of the articles that were found in Parachutist about that place and feel a sense of nostalgia since skydiving history was made there. Feel free to post your fondest memories of jumping there. I never got to, I could only imagine what it would be like to be in freefall over that desert floor with those mountains in the background. Must have been spectacular. Harry
