  1. Just finished the first page of this ridiculous flame fest.... thank goodness some reasonableness. To the OP, I see this as a 'heads-up' for anyone doing a balloon ride or off site jump in the Perris area. While the land owner does have the right to be upset, he is seemingly being somewhat unreasonable. One would hope that these events can continue with courtesy and understanding between all parties involved. Apologies and compensation should always be offered to any land owner if damages or inconvenience is occurred. Otherwise no need for anyone to be an asshole and everyone is happy. How many balloons have landed on ur property? And just because the UK has no property rights does not doesn't mean we don't! I know this guy who got pissed and his version is quite different... Has mister big mouth ever done a balloon jump at Perris? "Tell ya the truth, I don't think this is a brains kind of operation."

    Canopy jumps #'s

    I was GIVEN a Sabre 1 170 that has alot of jumps on it...not sure how many but it was given to me cuz no one was jumping it. I started jumping it on my 78th jump.....and I am still jumping it!! no hard openings but it does open snappy.... "Tell ya the truth, I don't think this is a brains kind of operation."

    Need advice

    Glad to hear about your A license....CONGRATS!!! It is natural to be excited about sharing your jumps with others but the truth is inside video (you filming your jumps) is pretty boring to watch. I suggest you make friends with a more experienced jumper who already has a camera and jump with him/her. Or even better offer to pay for their jump so they can practice doing video of you and another jumper. Of course make sure the camera guy is qualified, but at 200+ jumps he should be!! Having a camera, even a go-pro, changes the jump in alot of ways so just work on your flying for now!! "Tell ya the truth, I don't think this is a brains kind of operation."

    Sony CX-110 issue

    Unlike the CX100 the CX110 does not have any internal memory... "Tell ya the truth, I don't think this is a brains kind of operation."

    dropzone employment

    Are you currently doing o/s video? Do you have a still camera? 500 jumps in 4 years does not make a TI. Packing and tandem videos may be your best bet. good luck "Tell ya the truth, I don't think this is a brains kind of operation."

    etiquette

    Personally I tipped my instructors quite a bit thru all of AFF. I did it for a few reasons; 1. I understand the value of a professional's time. (they don't get paid "alot") 2. I knew this would be my home dz and I wanted to thank them for their effort. 3. I had the extra money. 4. I had a huge crush on Lelo! "Tell ya the truth, I don't think this is a brains kind of operation."
  9. I never intended to skydive...well I talked about it with a friend but I thought it cost too much. I finally did a tandem when I was 40; mainly as a xmas gift to my 18 year old daughter who jumped with me.....I was hooked Recently I did my first w/s jump....I am hooked....I have only done 5 so far but plan on doing a few tomorrow. ....long story short; I just bought that book...do you see where this is going? Thanks for the post and the nudge btw, you should work for them... they got at least one sale just cuz of u

    Tandem student video

    Hypothetically, I know of a situation in which 2 tandems students were allowed to jump with similar cameras taped to their wrist...like a student hand-cam I never saw the footage though...since it was only hypothetical "Tell ya the truth, I don't think this is a brains kind of operation."
  11. dam they sure film alot of stuff at Elsinore....great link

    Small but effective trick

    Wow...if anyone here thought Spot had the ability to be 100% sure the student never took a breath the entire skydive; as opposed to his belief the student never took a breath; well I can only shake my head. Regardless, I too was a VERY tense and unrelaxed W/S student that Spot had to deal with. Though I did not have 500 jumps total I did have 448 in the last 29 months; technically he should have not let me jump a W/S since I am clearly not a "natural" at skydiving. Oddly enough my first flight went much better than my instructor thought it would go....even though I was "tense" My point is, Spot is a good instructor, his mellow attitude and attention to detail are what I like about him most. But he is so approachable and easy to talk to it bothers me to see this BS go on here. Personally, I will be down at Elsinore on Weds doing some more W/S jumps with a suit that Spot will let me demo at no cost...what an evil ego-maniac EDIT: while I did not need the magic strips I did get some mental tricks to help me breath and relax during the flight. Like it or not, Spot is starting a W/S frenzy at my dz, and I am one of the latest casualties. "Tell ya the truth, I don't think this is a brains kind of operation."

    Skydiving with kids

    Wow great thread....I didn't know it was 2 years old till your update. Initially I disagreed with your choice to put off jumping due to your wife's "panic attacks"; honestly I think things are working out best for you. I have only jumped for a little while, in fact my first jump; a tandem, was made along with my oldest daughter (she was 18). I got licensed 3 months later; my daughter got her A about 6 months after me. Regardless, my wife hated skydiving and a little after a year of jumping my wife filed for divorce, she even had me served at the DZ while I was training tandems! Luckily, I refused to move out, and finally won her back. Now she is ready to do a tandem next week (I get to do video!) and we are taking my youngest to Lodi at the end of January to do her first jump; she turns 16 Jan 31! Sorry for your loss, but you will be happier if she was that controlling... EDIT: to be fair I have not downsized since jump 71 so I guess I have made my own concessions cuz of my family....that and I am old enuff to know I am going to die sooner or later!
