Perswig, you're not gullible, I saw that video and had the same reaction as you (based off your post). Wondered if that was real (although I must admit I've always thought if you lose a wing, it's game over), and thought I'd share that video since you commented on it. I guess, judging by Ron's comment, that that video is pretty common. Guess we're just not up to speed!

Now if I can just figure out how to hitch one to the back of my harness.

Overhangs may be a problem.

Morro Rock. If only climbing was allowed there...There has to be something good mixed in there with the gull poo.

…because thinking is just too difficult sometimes, and because I'm abroad and can't climb...this thread inspired me to make an app (I know, shameless plug). Flight rules at a glance, for any METAR station in the world. I hope it proves useful (or at least interesting) for the few of you who fly when you're not busy climbing or bickering on the taco.

Errr… that doesn't look good. Do skydivers and planes generally land in the same place at other airports.

^^^^not really, areas are supposed to be separate and i would have to say, the jumper blew it here. not hard to see a plane on the runway if you have eyes

One wouldn't think it a long term survival strategy to regularly land on an active runway.

Nice posts all!

Snake, if I had known you were at Mesquite I would have ran up there, I haven't seen Brad and Co in a while.

Here's some more cave jumping, Cave of Swallows in Mexico.

This afternoon, I'm going to jump with the Canadian military demo team, the "Skyhawks". They needed some volunteer meat sacks to train tandems. Sometimes the perks of my job are kinda cool.

Make sure you pack that thing right, eh budday?

And you firearms enthusiasts? Please don't shoot at us, that's their canopy not Pass the Penis Pete's ledge up there:
