  1. I jump Deland, Z-hills and Sebastian... I'll keep my eyes open and can also post on Facebook if you like. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  2. From Sandy's blog.....I could not have said it any better: "Trying to find the quality in life that every day has to offer. In this process, it is better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all". Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  3. Still at a loss for words...my good friend Sandy gone :( . Always a gentleman and always had a good word for everyone. Always helping me get better. The DZ will never be the same for me... love ya bro Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  4. “I used oxygen and at 19,300 feet I opened the paraglider and started looping,” he said. “I was looping for around 15 minutes until I had the feeling I was close to the ground so I stopped at around 1,500 feet.” He had a feeling he was close to the ground?! Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  5. Gained more friends than I have lost.... but I will probably be driving this 2000 Suburban until the wheels fall off! This has been an expensive 15 months! I still got month at the end of the money! Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  6. Wow...very cool. Nice way to remember your 100th! Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  7. IMHO... get your schooling finished and make it a goal (reward) to get your AFF completed when you finish school. As a professional in the medical community, you will have time and money to do it as much as you like when you finish. My daughter is starting med school in August at USF and that is my recommendation to her. Just my 2 cents. Fear is the thief of dreams.....

    Pilot

    Found- many thanks to Skydive Deland.
  9. When you get a pay raise... forget to tell the wife and figure out how many skydives you can do with the extra cash. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  10. Like the blue...nice rig! Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  11. True Grit, A Man called Horse, The Outlaw Josie Wales.... Venice, Florida sometime in the 60's.....loved those movies. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  12. It will clear up... the weekend looks good and mornings during the summer usually cooperate. It's not always like this.... the Perfect Spot has a pretty good selection of imports and domestic beers... and you can't beat the Cuban sandwich. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  13. I would say he enjoyed the jump!! Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  14. 50? You got 30 more years of jumping if you keep fit! I am 51 and just started jumping in Sept. I now have close to 90 jumps. Wisdom comes with age! Go for it! Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  15. I guess I meant to downplay the fear part. IMHO fear puts a person in a position where they don't think clearly and are afraid to try anything new. No question this is a dangerous sport. In my short skydiving career...I have personally seen ankle breaks, a broken neck and a person end up in a wheelchair for life. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  16. The only one I have found to be really comfortable is the Bonehead REvolve.... everyone I know that has one likes it...I have heard that it catches air at the chin, but that is the only negative I have heard. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  17. I'm just a newbie, but IMHO I still believe this is a relatively safe sport if you practice what you have learned, keep learning and don't push the envelope. Unless a person becomes a introverted hermit...Risk is everywhere. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  18. Can't wait.... I'll be there in the afternoon on T-W and all day jumping on Friday and Sat... let's hope the weather cooperates this weekend! Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  19. Hate that when I am hanging curtains in the raw and I fall off the ladder and get a tater stuck in my butt!!! Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  20. Great to hear...lets jump when you get back to Deland. Congrats on the progression. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  21. A very nice day at the DZ indeed.... You looked good under canopy today. Sounds like you are doing great in free fall as well. I'll be jumping again Wednesday if you decide to add a day or so to your holiday. Welcome to the brothahood! Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  22. Deland has a buy to own program... put down a payment and never pay for rentals for like 6 months...a great way to progress without paying for a rig all at once. The only problem is you don't always get to jump the rig you want...sometimes it is being used by someone else. I bought my container...then added a main and reserve over a few months. Worked great for me. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  23. Until you hit the caves or do lots of mixed gas diving
  24. I'd marry him....lol Fear is the thief of dreams.....
  25. Chromy is an awesome tunnel coach...did 20 minutes with him last week. 20 minutes in the tunnel is like 20 freefalls.... you are gonna ace AFF. Fear is the thief of dreams.....
