  6. Now, that would be COOL!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    OK,OK, I am just kidding.........DON'T DO IT!!!!! :eek:  :eek:  :eek:  :eek: 
  7. Well, when I served in the army (Paratrooper) we had a black lab called Babbis... We had modified an auxiliary para (T10) and let him go of the tower numerous times... :D 
    Not only he was not scared but whenever he saw us "jumping" he wanted to come with us... :wink:
    I'll have ti dig out some old photos, svan them and post them gere... 8)
  8. Todd that's true. Once I flew an F16B and it was a lifetime experience :shock:
  9. Hey Panos that looks like fun. I may be old but made my first parachute jump last year at 70. I jumped within a week of my son's first jump. He is an Army paratrooper currently stationed at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina.
  10. Isn't it a GREAT feeling Gordon :D  What kind of parachute jump was it?
  11. I did a 14,000 foot jump with a 5,000 foot freefall using a sport parachute. While I didn't manage a stand up landing I didn't do bad and skidded in on my feet and rear. I did this jump in the beautiful country surrounding Zion's National Park in southern Utah. It was freezing during the freefall but was beautiful once I pulled the rip cord and the chute opened.

    All I got to say is that you guys are NUTZ!! :?

  13. Gordon... I'm "gapping"... :shock: I take it you had a training first, a few tandem jumps... but wooohooooo 14,000ft... Did you use oxygen? :?

    Ohhh com'n Frank, they say two things about sky diving...
    First, every jump gives you at least 5 years of life :!:
    and Second, a good jump is far FAR better than a good... :roll: s3x... :wink: 8)
  14. Training yes, oxygen no. I wasn't real keen on the free fall part of the jump and the photographer that captured it shows just how contorted your face gets at 120 MPH. Once the chute opened it was pure pleasure from there on down
  15. Gordon... isn't it a GREAT feeling trying to breath thru your teeth at 14,000ft height and 120mls speed ... :D
