    World Team Fails to Break Record

    Very sad to hear about the loss. Perhaps next year? Another attempt?

    Hey Bro, Check Out my Go Pro

    I'm only at jump 125......i think it would be cool....but maybe next year>
  4. http://skipro.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/s/t/strada-glove.jpg I'm using something like this. I can move all my fingers and thumb and it keeps the hand warm but the tips of my fingers....OUCH! COLD!

  5. Yeah i know how he is. I just spent an hour answering emails from friends asking "So who was the old guy on tv!" Sigh...that producer needs to be taken out and shot! For not putting up his name when they showed him on Dicsovery.. Ok that aside, leather gloves? Right now I'm using neoprean gloves. I like them for two reasons. One they have feel. In that i can still feel the hackey. The other is that they are "sticky" and grabbing is much easier. But I will have to dig out my motorcycle stuff and see what i can find. With respect to the cold. Is there anything we should be on the look out for with respect to our safety equipment? AAD's or other that may be affected by the cold? Thank you!

  6. Yes I was amazed how much more thirsty i was after just one jump! And on my last jump this past Saturday when it was 40F on the ground and very colt at altitude i had dressed in layers and my core temperature was warm. And though i was wearing wake board gloves...and though the palm of my hand was warm the tips of my fingers were painfully frozen.

  7. OMG that's so funny considering USAF's Project Mogul Was that the one where teh USAF was dropping off dummies from 100k ft which may have been misidentified as aliens?

  8. Skygod willing it will be a mild winter. And maybe those of us here in the north east may get some mid winter jumps. When jumping in the winter what should a new jumper watch out for with respect to both equipment as well as body? Thanks in advance!

    what in your mind when you see this

    Ok if i told you he's got less than 200 jumps is that ring a bell I don't think you mean this is Shah? God no it's not me. But i do know that there are some wing suiters in Iran and there is a Persian skydiving club in Tehran. I wonder if it's them? Who knows?

  10. Pesky MBA got in the way! Had a chance to speak to a few people with significantly larger number of jumps and I now have a much much better idea as to how to spot people from the aircraft and how to adjust my solo jump.

    Spare parts? I mean it does sound sick but I've seen first time riders get sold 1L 200hp bikes so that the manager could then buy the bike off of the kid after he turned it into a surf board! http://hellforleathermagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/zx-10R-crash-599x328.jpg Spot the dude in this photo of a n00b on a ZX-10R. Or maybe they student just wants some thing small to pack? I mean packing a 200+ sqft wing is hard work? Either way thank you for caring for us n00bs. I wish there were more peole in this sport and in this world like you!
  14. Sorry I will jump more..I was going for my MBA...so i could only jump once a month now it's every other week!
