You know what they say falls from the sky? Fools and birdshit!

You should definitely come back from leave wearing jump wings. AAFES sells 'em, that means you can wear 'em.

Its not enough that we send you off to the desert to get shot at, you have to spend your off time jumping out of perfectly good airplanes? What's next? Scuba diving with rays? Climbing Everest?

Have fun! Safe landings

Nah, I did that on R&R leave. There were sharks, too.


Anyways, I'm in Zephyrhills, and the ARFCOMMER is CaptainPooby. He taped the jump, and he said it'll be on ARFCOM today.

You're close enough... Go to Tampa... Ybor City has some outstanding bars & clubs (and cigars, if you smoke them), just watch your drink, the women down there will slip YOU the roofie and do naughty things to you. And be careful not to cross into the GaYbor District!

If you need to see some boobies, Mons Venus is world famous and CrownAndSeven approved! I rate it higher than Scores in NYC!!!

I've had jump wings for years. I graduated jump school back in 2002.

You fail.

It's still there.

It took two guys to throw Voils out of that plane.


Nope. It's back again or he reuploaded it.

Before it said video has been removed.

So......

In all honesty, I cannot tell it is you. You found a random video didn't ya.....

Link Posted: 7/18/2008 9:35:17 AM EST
There's some decent face shots in the vid ... shouldn't be too hard to see my goofy face.

Bet that was one kick ass ride. I am a bit suprised they let you jump from so high. I know I will never forget my first one. If you make the LCR I will tell ya about it!

All my jumps here are going to be at 13,500 feet. I think my lowest pull altitude will be 4000 feet. I don't know how differently they do it elsewhere, though.

Three gheywads and one chute, hmm. What's with pickin buttcheese at 5,000 feet? That must be how you earned the arfcom discount, huh? Just funnin, looks like a hoot. You should have steered further south and dropped in at Gitmo. I hear the chow is fabulous.

And here's CaptainPooby's video from the jump. His is better:

I finished the AFF program today. I'm not cleared to self-jumpmaster and solo jump. I've still got to learn some things and get more jumps in before I can get my A license, though.

Here's a link to my AFF Graduation Jump: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kx6Hvtzy0ac

it used to be 34 or something, but you kept refreshing it until it reached 106, didn't you?
Link Posted: 7/21/2008 5:06:36 PM EST
Damn it! Now I want to get back up in the air and jump some more. Thanks alot.

My wallet thanks you too.
Link Posted: 7/21/2008 6:56:41 PM EST
that’s way cool … I've jumped twice myself; but only at 2 500ft on a static line, back when the field was located near Lake Sammamish; what I’d really like the do the tandem at 10k … someday!
Link Posted: 7/21/2008 7:15:41 PM EST
Cool!

Did you pull the chute or did one of the other guys do it?

Someone didn't watch the video ....

Yeah, I pulled. The first video (mine and pooby's), I pull around 5200' AGL, and the last video I pull about 4000' AGL.

Congrats Voils. I'm very jealous right now.
