  1. Evil! They would never get any sleep... or develop right! ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
  2. Thank you all for the information.
  3. I did ask him why... he said he would not even touch it. He said the reserves pack funny and I would need to find another rigger if I bought it. He would not go into detail at all, just blew it off. ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
  4. Ha ha... I think that is funny, actually. I will ask another rigger then for a second opinion.
  5. Recently I have been offered to purchase a Racer sport rig with everything except the main. I mentioned it to the rigger where I packed and he just cringed. I've been told to STAY AWAY. Why? ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
  6. I had my first cutaway this Friday... Hop-n-Pop... then chop. Jump #32 ((Yes, lots of beer to be had... only the free bag is missing, I kept the handles)) Oh, aside from that... I did a lot of new things! 3-ways, 8-way track dive.... just one crazy weekend for little newbie me!!! I loved it! ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
  7. Outbreaks like this in a public forum never help anyone, and certainly does not show professionalism if seeking a job within the industry. May I suggest next time that you do not immediately respond, but instead take your time to articulate a response, or if you decide not to respond at all - might be the best option at times. ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
  8. I got the Vegas Pro 10 because my home DZ has it there, but I need to know how to use it somewhat before they show me what to do. I don't want to edit videos like a robot (i.e. do exactly as shown but not understand the purpose of what I am doing). My goal was to expand to a larger DZ this next season, but one of the options has fallen through. (If only I had my driver's license AND a car!) Anyways, just trying to be useful around the DZ in more than one way! **Edit: Oops, I did not notice the "Photography and Video" forum! As far as video software goes, I don't really have experience in any program yet, so learning at least this program I think will help me quickly catch onto others.
  9. Not sure if this qualified as Skydiving stuff, so just in case I am posting here! If you edit videos at a drop zone, what is the software that you use? I currently have Vegas Pro 10 that I am self-learning at the moment, possibly interested in a video editing position in my area. Thanks! ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
  10. Thanks for the information. Quick clarification, I always gear check myself - it has been ingrained throughout the AFF training I received. (I might be obsessive checking my handles,) Rather be safe than sorry! Again, thanks for the information!
  11. I am a newly licensed skydiver, heck, I have yet to make my first licensed jump... I was just curious how to go about gear checks away from my home DZ and with a load of unknown skydivers... (technically not strangers because we will be getting real close together in the plane ) =========== Are people generally willing to give others a gear check when asked? Or should checking my own gear be sufficient now that I am licensed? OR Do you give people you do not even know a gear check when they ask in the plane? =========== Since it is more of a comfort thing for me, is this something I should figure out before getting on a load, regardless if I am doing a group dive or solo? Thanks for input. (I know, total newb question). P.S. Looking for a ride to Midwest on Sunday to make my first jump... included! ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
  12. Popsjumper, I am not into that kind of thing, sorry. If I were, I would have been taken care of a long time ago. I will keep that in mind for future reference, Ron, but I was really looking for others' advice and experience on the topic. I will not quit school to become a packer, but I am willing to make other sacrifices at this time to pack. Bonfire board it is, next time. ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
  13. What's a bulp anyways? ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
  14. I do not trust myself on a motorcycle because I love SPEED! That is why I found skydiving! (and I still want to go faster! ) ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ---Kollege Kay--,--'-@ Newbie Skydiver
