  1. Not a day goes by without thinking about Dan, I learned a lot from him and I hope I can pass it on to my girls.... God Bless my Friend Dan Potts LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  2. I am a Jump Shack Dealer in Houston, contact me at marcelo@thefreefallshop.com LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  3. We should find these fucks and offer them a free base jump from a bridge, no training necessary... LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  4. Yup and me too.... I just received an offer to buy my gear.... Told him I am like the hookers, money in cash on hand first, then you get the goodies.... LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  5. Wow, that long ago? it doesn't seems that long... I remember Dave letting me fly the Otter on the way down after dropping jumpers...what a cool dude he was. I sold him my guns for jump tickets and then he sold them back to me cheaper than What I had paid him... He said to me once...you should not part with these...one day they might want to take them away from you.

  6. Beautifully told, I might add the 21 gunfire salute and taps which left no dry eye in the place.... Dan affected many people and never gave it a thought, it was his way. LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  7. I have been to several funerals in my life, but never something so emotional and beautiful as Dan's service. Dan was a simple man who led an extraordinary life. He left a big empty hole in all of us.... He was a humble man, a loving man, an honest man and a hero to his family, his country and to many of us. People always say nice things about the dead, but in this case it was no exaggeration, Dan was the real thing.

  8. I received a phone call from Paul (DZO) Saturday afternoon, about 45 minutes after it happened, it felt like a wrecking ball had hit my chest. I could not believe what I was hearing, Dan is gone. I considered Dan one of my closest friends, his advice saved and improved my life, forever grateful to you dan. Dan was a great Daddy and husband, hard working and brutally honest, never saw him say anything in anger or speak ill of anyone (even if deserved) He leaves a beautiful family, a wife of 27 years by his side, a Navy SEAL family and a Skydiving Brotherhood that will truly miss him I will never forget your words.... "Hey buddy, you know its all about the kids, they are God's way of saying I love you" LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  9. When I first got my rigger's certificate Terry handed me his rig and said "lets see how good you are" Two days later he became my first save...I charged him 2 bucks for scaring the crap out of me.

  10. First of all I want to Thank Antonio at Fermo for all the great info, Idefinitely plan to visit his DZ. One thing I would like to do is jump the Nemo Skyvan, can anyone tell me if that plane will be in Italy the first 2 weeks in September?.... Any other cool Drop Zones to visit in Italy, Roberta mentioned Fano near Rimini... LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  11. I dealt with Dennis on a rigging level and he was always professional and it was obvious he loved everything he did....there are fewer and fewer people like him around... This sucks. LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  12. My first jump was in 1982 since then I can say two jumps stand out as most memorable, both were organized by Pat. He also was influential inme not quitting the sport when I was considering walking away for good... This really sucks, he touched so many and gave so much. May your family find comfort in the wonderful memories. Marcelo Garcia LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  13. Yup he did mine...on a cold night...then he let me shoot his machine gun..... LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  14. Holy Crap this lawyer has spent his entire life studying and learning stuff, I barely got through one thing, ok may be two. LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
  15. Hey: the last time I put a camera on my head was a few years ago, it was a TRV80 and I had a Cam Eye 2, loved that feature in my system. Does anyone know if there is such a thing for The Sony CX 100? LIFE IS LIKE A CIGARETTE, YOU CAN SIT THERE AND WATCH IT BURN AWAY OR YOU CAN SMOKE THAT BITCH TO THE FILTER
