    Yeah, that one scares the hell outta me. I could walk that (okay, there are day's I'd crawl that one section), but never on a bike. Never even walking a bike.

    Somehow I missed this. Good on you Dirty Dog! It's no secret I was in the US Army Airborne. I am still afraid of heights but not so much from jumping. Go figure. I don't know if I would ever have taken up sky diving. I thought about it, but never did.

    Roll out my flat foot! That was terrible PLF. :) ;)

    Hope you get a chance to show us more.

    I can't imagine. But then I have heard of some other rather dumb things happening. Who won the fight? ;-)

    And yes, thanks for reserve chutes. I once had to deploy mine on Okinawa. No telling what would have happened without it. I had a tight squid that was scarily close to a streamer. I was dropping fast until I got the reserve out.

    Wow! Just wow.

    Was that some kind of competition or had the bird of paradise just flown up his nose and screwed up his judgement?
