  4. I just realized that I was a "pileit" in the Army. When I would dig a foxhole my squad leader would show me where he wanted the dirt piled. That's where I would pileit. Over the years I got to be a pretty good pileit...
  5. I wish the very best for both of you :-)
  6. I was sitting in the bowling alley at Schofield Barracks drowning my sorrows at having 36 gutter balls in a row. My buddy said "you ought to try skydiving, no matter what you're gonna hit the ground". That was in 1980. In every jump since I have yet to miss the ground

  16. I jump a monster 328 main.. all zp.. I pay 10 per pack job plus a generous tip. That thing is a freakin beast. The packer deserves combat pay
  17. The laughter, the friendships, the feeling of exhilaration when I a jump goes as it was dirt dived, the freedom, the breath I take at the door before exit... I can go on and on. Beer always tastes better on the dz than anywhere else in thie world
