    Never had a desire to leap out of a perfectly good airplane. Did have an Army Jumpmaster tell me once that he got $100 a month to jump, I told him that’s nice but I get $200 a month to take y’all out and drop you off then I go back to a cold beer and a warm bed.

    It was $55/month when I was at it, so it was never about the money. Besides, how ever much it is, it's not enough. There have been many cold beers and warm beds since then. Little did I realize at the time that it would be a significant part of my highlight reel.

    Before I get settled down and have a family I have to go jump out of a plane.
    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    Why walk when you can ride, why ride when you can fly, why fly when you can sit in the Club and drink?

    When the MV-22 Osprey came out I was one of the first to jump out of them for certification for jump operations. The pilots and loadmaster (crew chief?) said it was the first time they thought we were the smart ones with the parachutes

    The worst I did was rapell out of helos or ride the jungle perpetrator.

    I did high angle rescue for several years, its a whole new pucker factor when you are @7500 feet @ 95 degrees up the cliff face in a Huey and it loses torque.
