  1. You didn't mention time limits on that work flow. Most of the turbine places work at 40-50 minute turns. That included everything you noted in the workflow plus downloading video, presenting certificates, and stowing brakes and stretching the canopy for packing. Sometimes it isn't the work, it's the pace. I know a lot of very experienced TI's that quit when the pace became unsustainable.
  2. This is not mine. It originally belonged to my wife's first husband and when I was going through things I discovered it and couldn't throw it out.
  3. But does it have a skull hidden in it somewhere? That was a Rickerby trademark.
  4. Dave got around. I still jump my Alti-II with the face painted. He did it for me for $20 in '83 at Lakewood NJ. He was living with his girlfriend in a van on the DZ in those days.
  5. The question n is how many of the idiots will blame Biden and vote Red because of it?
  6. Or he's really old. My father was married 3 times, and never divorced! He just kept outliving them. Was married to each of them 20+ years and passed at 94 still married to his 3rd wife of 23 years.
  7. I was in the left trail plane and followed the wrong person on a 75 way. Realized my mistake and flew all the way over to the other side, cutting people off as I went! Still docked in my slot. I thought it was an excellent example of some awesome flying but I was disabused of that belief at the de-brief!
  8. Considering that enough Californians and businesses have fled to other states under Newsom that the state lost a Representative after the last census I personally wouldn't vote for him on a bet. He's only in office in CA because 75% of the state are registered Democrats.
  9. US average is $5.10. That's why $6.44 looks more like greed and control.
  10. And by the way, CA average today hit $6.44...
  11. In CA, all that is needed is a pen. The Governor could suspend the state gas tax and between the refinery taxes and the pump taxes reduce cost roughly $1 per gallon. But the $97 Billion we currently have in unexpected tax revenue isn't enough. WE WANT MORE! In CA, it's about control of the populace and maintaining power.
  12. Isn't that a Biden quote?
  13. I saved mine for the next use. You would be surprised at the number of times I've loaned it out.
  14. This is Jerry Girdlers ash dive from a few years ago. The effect from the ground of the ashes is pretty impressive. I think I modified that tube from just the 2 lines to 3 to keep the opening of the tube more horizontal, although once air is in the tube those ashes are gone!
  15. I've done it 3 times that way. The ashes blow up thru the tube very cleanly and keeps them out of the jumpers face and gear. I just used a couple of wide and long rubber bands to hold the package closed with a pull-up cord tied to the rubber bands and tucked under to make a good handle for pulling the rubber bands off. The trick to get it to work well is to spread the ashes out about 2 feet of the length of the tube. That keeps the weight from slumping lower than your hand when you pull the bands offf. I'll post a pic when I get home of the ash dive for my Best Man from a few years ago.
