  1. I called Taft to get the info, and I'm definately not social, just GRUMPY and GIMPY. Air Trash website has a social sign up if you like.
  2. wow, thanks I guess we all an relate, My thoughts his words.
  3. Jay Lopez repacked mine last, lives up san fransisquito cyn.road. 661 361 5383 cell is iffy up there. 1 661 270 9580 Landline
  4. I mentioned this to Cal City Refugees this Sat. @ Perris. All were a "GO" for Sat. and /or Sun. once or twice a Month. Weekdays were a "NO GO"for the majority. so ADD 6 to the List
  5. Please put me on a contact list,I Can't PM you with my info?But I'd love to meet all them legends. Sat. & Sun. Works best.
  6. Leo Davinci, I have always longed to Fly. Cannot afford to be a private pilot,when I can, I will. Swimming thru the sky,is truly flying. (some call it falling) The contrast between terminal & Canopy flight. The Flight it's self, peacefully,quietly floating 1000's of Ft.above the ground.no,machine confining U within. My dreams of flight Realized.
  7. I'm 5'6" 190+ with gear, & HATE SINKING OUT ON RW JUMPS,ANVILS FALL FAST. +1 FOR FLIGHT SUITS WITH SWOOP CORDS! A LITTLE PRICY, BUT U GET WHAT U PAY FOR.
  8. WOW Thanks for all the advice, I'm thinking I'll ask my rigger to install Loops @ my next repack. I chickened out this weekend, still haven't landed on my rears alone, there was a stiff wind on my last jump of the day,But bailed to the brakes at the last moment.GEAR FEAR? Anyhow after 3yrs, & 180 jumps, this crw pass was a memorable jump & plan on doing one @ sunset from here on. SO MANY HIGH SPEED TURNS/DIVES made me seasick.
  9. Did a solo crew pass @ 11K & Wore myself out flyn around on the rears. If loops are on the fronts , why not the rears? It was a great learning experiance,a couple more flights & I'll be confident enough to land with the rears.(with a stiff head wind) Loops sure would help.
  10. I noticed on on Skydive Taft website gumpy old farts reunion,on May 26th.
  11. Go to a Wind tunnel !!! In a matter of mins. things will start clicking. You'll have a good relitive reference (the walls/ instructor)& you will work on your muscle memory. Fly Big up High,with turns ,side slides, ect Fly small down Low,with turs,slides, forward; rear movements. Pick a simulated Alt., practice pulls, E.P. ect. Have fun, relax, Tracking skills can't be practiced , But your balance, and corrections in body positions will help. I allways try to have Altitude Awarness in Mind.I break the time in tunnel into sections with a simulated pull/E.P. drill. @ $10-20 a Min. It's alot cheepr than coach jumps!
  12. Do some research on knee resurfacing, the FDA hasn't OK ed their use in the US yet, But it's much less invasive & recovery is but a faction. Oh , the cost is even less. the whole idea of cutting off the jiont,instead of just the broken down surface,seems a bit much to me!! Hope this helps
  13. Just my.02 Jogging/ running will force your body Bone density to be increased, for some the pounding your lower body will take is too much. Just remember it will take 4-6 weeks for your body to adjust/strengthen YOU WILL BE SORE.bones ,joints tendons from your lowerback to the tipps of your toes will be stronger as well as your cardio. After which you can determine if this is problematic. I'm 45, and feel like I have 20yr. old tree stumps!!
  14. Thanks a million for your input.Just what I wanted to here. Can't wait to jump/Fly it
